Stop Dousing Your Kids In Ratchet Juice
I question my sanity almost every day. I also question the sanity of the rest of the world…every. single. day. Why? Because I am constantly bombarded by imagery that I cannot fathom for the life of me. My friend sent me this video of an infant girl listening and mimicking Young Thug. I didn’t even need to see it to know that I was going to ruin an otherwise great day!
So, I waited until 11:30 pm to look at the video, 13 hours after he sent it over. It was as ratchet as advertised. He said, “Cute but parents are teaching children to be ratchet for a laugh. And that’s a shame.”
Honestly, I don’t even think it’s that cute. Check it out.
We do it to ourselves, people.
I love the #BlackLivesMatter movement, but we are going to have to come from a more honest, inward place as if that is to truly became reality. Perhaps, I came here on a spaceship. Perhaps, I’m buggin’ out. Last time I checked, kids were supposed to be protected from adult content. This allows them to remain kids until they are old enough to process, right? Wrong.
I did a little social media analysis on the video and conclude that I indeed may be from another planet. The video had over 54,000 views with 1,102 likes at the time of this writing. Only 18 people gave it a “thumbs” down on YouTube. And then when you look at the comments you get things like, “Awwww I saw this on my moms Facebook …. Lol.” That’s a real comment from a female. Most of the comments included the word “cute,” but there were some that considered it a representation of America’s doomed future.
Another “viral video” going around is too disturbing to comment on. People really think this is funny. (Warning: language)
So, is the girl automatically going to be ______ by age 10? Not necessarily, but I don’t get a great feeling from the video when your supposed mother is guffawing in the drivers seat. Shoot, Young Thug’s own daughter was the subject of much controversy when she was cursing like a sailor on Instagram by the child’s mother. Sheesh.
What does it say about young mothers and fathers that they are proud to display their children doused in ignorance? I don’t know the answer. I’m from other universe, remember?
I suppose all is not lost.
This other little kid was posted by one Kimberly Harris and I realized the future is as bright as it dark. It all depends on what side your life happens to fall.
Oh, Serena eventually gave them tickets to the U.S. Open, to the family’s delight. That’s a blessing.
