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.

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.

    My God, we will find just about anything to blame on single black mothers. How is the video anymore repugnant than the Steubenville videos that came out in regards to the high school footballers that raped a drunk girl and talked except for the one black person (of course we had to bring out the single black mother card for him too). There was no CNN series about how the black community led to that behavior, or an expose on single black mothers and their rapist children. Young boys and girls today are surrounded by sex. They are going to say immature and dumb things about sex. I did when I was young – and I came from a two-parent immigrant household and like generations of youth behind me, tried to “fit in.” I went to a predominantly black high school where students regularly “free-styled” about their imagined sexual prowess. When you looked closely, many of them also came from two-parent black middle class homes, had enforced curfews, and ended up going to some pretty amazing colleges. We’re assuming a lot about these kids background simply because they are black and foul-mouthed. Kids will be bad when their parents are not looking. I have a friend who teaches at a private all-boys school where parents pay up to $50,000 a year. He intimates what some of these teenage Caucasian boys talk about in regards to what they would do to women would make some rappers blush.
