When I was in 8th grade, it never ceased to amaze me how certain girls in my class felt that it was an ‘honor’ to get randomly felt-up by a male classmate, especially if he was the cute popular one. Back then, at the ages of 12/13, everyone’s hormones were raging, but my mother didn’t raise a ‘fast-tail’ girl (that’s what my grandmother called them), so I didn’t see anything cute about it at all.

I remember one incident in particular and it took place during 7th period Chemistry class. Mr. S had his typical coffee in one hand and cigarette in the other, yes my teacher smoked during class he was anything but typical. As I made my way to my desk, I was approached by another classmate named Mustafa. Typically I tried to avoid him at all costs because he was a known culprit when it came to ass grabbing. When I finally reached my desk, he did the unthinkable, and grabbed my butt. I immediately dropped my books and yelled at him. He looked at me as if I was in the wrong and called me a “bitch”. At that point, the next thing I knew, I threw a right hook and punched him dead in the eye. He wobbled and fell.

Once he managed to get back on his feet, the whole class was basically in tears from laughter. Mr. S took a drag from his cigarette and said to Mustafa, “Well, ain’t that something. Girls, maybe some of you need to take a few boxing lessons from Yesha and boys, next time think twice before you try grabbing a girl”.

Back then butt grabbing was a big deal, but nowadays it’s a whole different type of ball game. A couple of years ago, my nephew and son were sitting at the dining room table doing their homework. My son called me in because he said he saw something happen at school during recess. He goes on to tell me that he saw a boy put his hands down a girl’s pants. Disgust immediately hit me. I couldn’t believe what I was hearing about an Elementary school playground. I asked him did he tell any of the teachers that were out there and he said he did, but they didn’t do anything. At this point, I asked my nephew if he saw the same thing, and he said yes as well.

The next morning I placed a phone call to the school and the Board of Education, expressing my concern about certain things that have taken place on the playground in recent weeks. I also talked to the teacher whose students were involved in the incident. I didn’t understand why she didn’t report the incident to either the principal or the parents. She failed, big time, but the parents failed the children first.

My question is, what are parents teaching children nowadays? Some people will blame it on the media, i.e, tv, video games, music. But parents need to be held accountable for the actions of their kids. I would hope parents would do more in regards to educating their children about sexual behavior and promiscuity and telling them to keep their hands to themselves.

    This is why I would never let my children go to a all black school. Too many sh#tty parents.

      Touchy much? I want to an all white school and none of that bs you just typed ever happened to me. Then again, I should clarify that my children will go to an upper class white school. Not white trash, which you seem to be quite familiar with.

      I attended a black school in my earlier elementary years and looking back I am so glad my parents saved their pennies to move to a better school system with decent people that raise fairly normal children. Not children that fight everyday because they see their parents cursing each other out or their single mommy battling the boyfriend of the week. I tell you what else, i didn’t have to worry about being felt up and then telling the principal only for him to say “what else is new.” Yeah that sh#t happened to me in a BLACK school! I would never let my children go through that so F$^CK you or anyone else that does not approve.

      I am trying to raise well rounded citzens that value education and grades and not getting pregnant at 15 (and actually having the baby) fighting, feeling up people, cursing out teachers, and gangbanging, which are everyday things in a black school system.

      God bless you and your immoral self.

      Rochelle: You must live in a sh##ty neighborhood. You are sterotyping; and putting everyone in one category.

      I once saw two little hispanics girls keep kissing each other on the mouth. I was in shock. I can’t remember where I was at the time; but they were sitting at a table, and looked to be 4, or 5 years old. And the first thing I thought was….they’ve seen this on tv.

    I remember when I was on the playground with my friend, these two boys in my class (who would often pee on the fences) chased us with their penis out around the playground. We told the teacher or either they got in trouble, but I wonder did their parents talk to them about it afterwards.

    I’m happy my mom talked to me about sex (7 yrs-old) and was open to conversations whenever. My best friend’s mom would just yell at her whenever the topic even was about sex saying “Why does she need to know” or “She better not be fucking around”…..which probably led her to having sex and why I would consider being “fast.”

    Although, my mom never talked to me about the details of sex – I definitely learned about it in middle school. I use to sit around a lot of boys so hearing how they had sex with some girl in the woods behind the school while their friend was there (wtf that’s nasty), oral sex “head” (I was shocked to learn what that was), and just hearing that if a girl didn’t have sex with them then they would break up with her……….Hopefully when I have children, I’ll get her in a better school and she’ll have my sense about her own self-worth lol
