Hosea Chanchez opened up about being molested by his friend's father when he was 14. Chanchez revealed the abuse in a lengthy Instagram post on Tuesday, Sept. 3.

"Im Hosea chanchez and when I was 14 years old I was molested BY my friends father," he wrote. "This man is a predator, preying on children who’s trust he's falsely built through lies, manipulation, threats and secrets. I hope this truth helps to stop child molesting predators from sexually assaulting more children."

He added:

Pedophiles have no place in our society they hide in the open and rape children who are afraid to speak up because of shame, guilt, fear, denial and the thought that no one will believe them. Im doing this to help parents and young children become aware of some of the signs and better protect themselves from sexual predators.

Chanchez's revelation came days after actor Malik Yoba revealed he is attracted to male-to-female transgenders.

The true statistics of sexual abuse of children in the Black community will never be known since many parents and caregivers cover up for the pedophile and never report the abuse to authorities.

The abuse can leave long lasting emotional damage on children who sometimes grow up to abuse others or turn to drugs and alcohol to self-medicate.

Many homosexuals recall being molested by family members of family friends when they were young.
