Things That Make Ya Go…WTF.
It’s Bo Time
First, the inglorious MLK party flyers, then, Nicki Minaj’s controversial use of Malcolm X’s photo, and now, while it doesn’t necessarily disgrace any one historically recognized human rights activist (though, it does manage to embarrass us all), THIS.
That’s right, folks, the youth are twerking for fried chicken and biscuits.
I received a Facebook ‘event notification’ for this ridiculosity and couldn’t believe it was a real thing. Naturally, I vented my disgust via Facebook status post:
It was only ever sad and disgusting to me.
Especially as I read through some of the comments on the event page:
“Call me MRS. BOJANGLES.”
“Im throwing chicken on whoever twerk the best!”
“Man is Yu sellin boberry biscuits?”
These kids make my spirit hurt …like, have they NO respect for themselves or their peers? And where does this behavior come from? Is it learned behavior? Are the parents around? Better question, are the parents aware and engaged in their kids’ lives? Is it the music (::waves at Miley::)? Is it the television programming? The movies? Their environment? Their friends, but if that’s the case, the friends had to have gotten it from somewhere as well. So what is the ROOT of the problem? I’d say if ever there were a time to figure it out, when the youth are bent over jiggling their giblets for giblets, THAT IS THE TIME.
Where They Do That At? Apparently, Fayetteville, NC.
