Well, maybe not everything, but it’s damn sure where it starts.
Having your ten year old spew bile about drugs, bitc*es and shooting cops is perfectly fine.
(CNN) — Massachusetts child welfare authorities have found no evidence of neglect or abuse connected with a 10-year-old Brockton rapper who does adult-themed music videos.
Local police filed a complaint in February against the child’s father, prompting an investigation that was terminated Thursday, Department of Children and Families spokeswoman Cayenne Isaksen told CNN.
The child, Luie Rivera Jr., whose stage name is “Lil Poopy,” is seen in videos posted online, including on YouTube, smacking a woman’s backside, flashing wads of cash, riding in a Ferrari, dancing with women in sexually suggestive positions and rapping about how “coke is not a bad word.”
Lil Poopy is a member of the group Coke Boys, led by internationally known Moroccan-born rapper French Montana. He has also performed alongside hip hop moguls such as P. Diddy.
And the obligatory charge of racism:
Krowski said he believes a racially motivated double standard was applied to his client, who he said turned 10 in February, and his family, which is of Puerto Rican descent.
“You can find Hollywood, white actors depicted in much more racy films. They receive praise and acclaim,” he said. “Then you look at a video that has brown-color skin and they’re engaged in rap music and that invites an investigation.”
This is perfectly acceptable: (language warning)
Good job ‘Merica!
But wait, there’s more:
The idea here, I take it, was to show that supporting gay marriage is so obvious that even a five-year-old can arrive at the right conclusion if left to reason her way through it. That’s not how it comes off; you get the sense that this segment would have run for 20 minutes, with Krystal Ball nudging all the way, if that’s how long it would have taken to arrive at the favored result. I hope they keep this up and expand it to other hot-button issues. I’d be awfully curious to see what a five-year-old thinks of, say, abortion.
How any person can watch that and not cringe is beyond comprehension. In my world, that’s child abuse.
That poor child is going to grow up confused and damaged.
