Rapper Too Short Promote Young Black Boys To Commit Rape
Last week two young men, one 17 and one 15, sexually assaulted
a 15-year-old girl at Drew High School in Georgia. We may never know if these
words had anything to do with what they did.
"When you get to late middle school, early high school and you
feeling a certain way about the girls... I'm going tell you a couple
tricks," Too Short said in the video. "A lot of the boys are going to be running around trying to get
kisses from the girls... We're going way past that. I'm taking you to the
hole."Then, the 45-year-old rapper, whose real name is Todd Anthony Shaw, asks
women off camera to "cover their ears" to avoid being offended.
Short then describes a scenario in graphic detail. "You push
her up against the wall," he continued. "You take your finger and put a little
spit on it and you stick your finger in her underwear and you rub it on there
and watch what happens." Then he calls it fatherly advice!
As a 14-year-old high school student,
I find it irresponsible for that kind of message to be given to young men, many
of whom have no father figure.
