boys-2

The internet is buzzing over a video of five young teenage boys rapping about oral sex. The disturbing clip shows the youngsters rapping about performing oral sex on men in graphic, explicit detail. One line from the rap goes: “Sucking on a díck fast, I never do it slow. Everybody know ’cause my job is to blow” and another draws from Drake’s “Started From The Bottom” song with these lyrics: “Started from the díck now we here! Started sucking díck now we’re sucking on your pubic hair!”

Tommy Sotomayor used the boys’ unsettling YouTube video as an opportunity to criticize and condemn black single mothers. He believes single mothers are to blame for young gay men, like these teenagers. It’s their fault for not being able to adequately raise their sons by themselves, Sotomayor says. He also chastises black single mothers for choosing to procreate with men who could abandon them.

Via Naturally Moi:

He says: “I want to say this before I start off: I have no problem with a person’s sεxual orientation or a person’s want or need for sεxual experimentation. I don’t. Now with that said, these boys are the reason why we need to stop claiming that black children don’t need their fathers.” He continues by stating that Black single mothers often take credit for raising successful Black men alone; however, when the Black men go astray, they blame the absence of the father for the child’s demise. He also states that the Black race has turned into an androgynous race. “The black race looks like the 80s. You don’t know who is what. The women look like men, the men look like women,” Sotomayor says. At one point in the video, he candidly states: “Black women, you have failed. You can not blame ‘the man’ who left you with ‘the baby’ when you are the one who was the GM of the team and you hired that man. You can not keep firing players and blaming the players for not performing when it shows that you are a poor talent evaluator.”

While some people back up Sotomayor’s claims, others feel the music and culture is to blame.

    While I haven’t watched the video or know anything about these children, I do wonder if they are just young gay men that are very into hip hop culture and like many children do when the camera comes on the bravado comes out. We can only assume so much. Realistically these kids are at a very confusing time in their lives when it comes to their growth and development. It seems that more people have taken offense to this video due to the subject matter more so than anything else. I wonder what the issue would have been had these young boys had been talking about their sexual activity with a girl would people have been so mad. For example Souljah Boy was young when he was talking about doing a “Superman that hoe” on his song and I don’t remember anyone really saying much about it. Should they be making songs like this? Probably not…especially on camera but I think it is something their families need to address. Other than that I have no judgment about their environment because I don’t know where they come from. While I never did it on film, I surely remember when Lil Kim’s Hardcore came out I could quote quite a few songs that were not age appropriate for my 13 year old ears and that had nothing to do with my home life and I surely wasn’t a problem child/student.

    We live in a time where music is explicit. The only blame I see is the generation of men and women who stood on the sidelines while others fought the filth on radio and tv; those same ones who support these so-called “artist”, buying their gutter language. These boys are young now, and any sane adult wouldn’t support this; but they’ll have a market in a few years.

    1. When did being a poverty stricken single mother become an excuse to abuse one’s children or to allow them to be abused?

    2. There have always been children who lived their entire lives not knowing one or both of their parents, eg the children of widowed mothers.

    Today we have ELECTIVE single motherhood in the form of sperm donor mothers (including lesbian couples).whose children are legally barred from knowing who their bioligical fathers are. Let’s not forget about orphans or adopted children who, in the latter case, are given up by their mothers.

    Are you saying that these children are more likely to become sexual play things to child abusing homosexuals because they didn’t know dad?

    If that’s the case then let’s outlaw single motherhood, since it presents such a greivous threat to children.

    And lastly how come fathers suddenly become all important when single mom effs up? Where’s the concern for children’s “need to know their fathers” on the other 364 days of the year?

    Indeed, fathers are only “important” when the State wants to wash its hands of its responsibility to create the structural and economic conditions that allow people to build and maintain their families intact, and when single mom wants to evade accountability.

    Oh she’ll take SOLE CUSTODY and PRIMARY CARER rights and SOLE CREDIT (when the kids do well) all day, but never SOLE ACCOUNTABILITY.

    Please.

    Your illogical half assed, half witted attempt to deflect blame away onto an innocent party doesn’t even pass the sniff test, a total fail on every single count which only makes sense to illiterate buffoons who think children exist to make themselves look heroic and fathers, feeble.

    I went to Catholic school as a teenager. This type of language was rampant among middle schoolers. Our teachers, parents, religious figures had no idea about how we liberally talked about various sexual acts among friends. I’m sure it was this bad among the guys. Most of us grew up to be normal-appearing people who abandoned these immature playground shenanigans. In fact some of the worst offenders that I can think of off head ended up attending Ivy league schools, landing cush jobs – both black and white. This was in the late nineties.
    Sadly, this video does not shock me. The only difference then was that our indiscretions were not spread on social media and shared with the world. I got into hair-pulling fist fights in elementary and middle school. Thank God there was no WorldStar HipHop site then. Unfortunately, such stupidity will follow these kids for the rest of their lives. I feel for this generation.
    I wish there was a rule that you must have documented parental permission to post the video of a minor on YouTube or other sites. Though some parents stay stupid after their youth (case in point, parents that had their five year old rap about nonsense as scantily clad women shaked their goodies in his face).
