In the song:
How Come, How Long
By: Stevie Wonder...

1) What are the two types of abuse evident in the song?

2) Discuss the meaning of the line "she had a college degree, smart as anyone could be; there was not enough education in her world that could save the life of this little girl..."

These are the questions I tried to answer in my HW, but I really need help.
