Carla and K Roundtree, parents of a 6-year-old rapper and Tyler Council, producer of the boy's “Booty Pop” music video should be legally charged with child sexual abuse, convicted and made to register as sexual offenders.

because being really, really crappy parents isn't illegal. and it's the kid that will be in prison in a few years.

the whole thing is as predictable as it is tragic.

I just watched a snippet on local news were kids were lining up to get their free backpacks and school supplies.

Of course the moms were wearing $300 glasses, $200 shoes, had new iPhones, and hairdos from Hades.....

Because stupidity and bad judgement is not child abuse, and it diminishes real abuse to say it is. Author is a moron.

My mom said that’s why she doesn’t contribute school supplies to her church’s collection anymore. The parents blow their money on high-end personal goods for themselves, and then beg for help for their kids.

I won’t be surprised if I read in a few years of this kid being arrested for sexual crimes against women.

Also, did anyone notice this kid’s humongous navel? Looks like an umbilical hernia to me.

Mama has to have her hair done at $100 per months and nails done at $20 per but God help her, she can’t afford $50 for school supplies or $100 for hooked on phonics.

"Because stupidity and bad judgement is not child abuse"

Yes it is, if you get the child to strike seductive poses or simulate sex acts. The sexual exploitation of a child is a criminal act.

The parents, producers and adult participants should be charged. If it doesn't get to that point, they should at least be named, blamed and shamed as a corrective to them, and an example to others.

There are times I really think I should have been born in the very early part of the 20th century.

That’s a right of passage for their “culture”, or lack thereof. There would be no shame amongst their peers, unfortunately.

Same here for me. They have a back pack & school supply drive for couple of the school districts. Reporters took pictures of these children and their parents who received the items; of course, the kids and parents had 200.00 tennis shoes, ladies had their manicures and pedicures, etc.

For Christmas drive, picture of a kid getting a coat while on his new snowboard his parents bought him..excuse me?

“because being really, really crappy parents isn’t illegal.”

But sexual abuse of a minor is. I don’t know the pertinent statutes in his are, but I’d look into it if I were the DA.

In all fairness when I was a kid in school, you know back when the Pyramids at Giza were being constructed, the school provided us with paper, pencils, crayons, glue and the rest.

Now we are taxed to death over schools and half of them can’t buy stuff like toilet paper, tissues and soap? What is more when the kids bring stuff like tp, and tissues what do they do with what is left over at the end of the year? Some parents have told me of seeing piles and boxes of this stuff not used and on top of the teacher’s cabinet towards the end of the year yet by the last day of school it is all gone? If it is not used why can’t the kids have it back? Oh I guess the teachers are not paid that much is why.

I pay $8000/yr in Property Taxes for schools, and I still have to cough up $100 for school supplies.

More budget + more employees + more bureaucracy + more unionization = more theft, more corruption, more waste, more absolute unbelievable idiocy.

But ask just about anyone, and they’ll say schools are underfunded. They’ll say schools have experienced “budget cuts,” by which they mean “having less money,” even though it really means, “Our demand for 100% more was reduced to 50% more.”

This reminds me of an incident that I experienced many years ago, back in the late 1960s. I was on my lunch hour walking to a restaurant with a couple of my co-workers, all young women like myself. A little black child, couldn’t have been more than 5 or 6, was standing on the sidewalk and as we walked by, he pointed to his private area and said “P***y?

We were shocked, and I was only 19 or 20 at the time, so I figured he didn’t really know what he was saying, but my co-workers thought otherwise. They were probably right.

If the six-year-old was white, it would be viewed as child abuse. Since he is Black; it’s called “culture.”

It’s the same as the Colorado tragedy being called a “massacre” while the shootings that occur nightly in my city are called “incidents”.

we should take care of our own kids first, our granchildren, our nieces/nephews etc...then perhaps the neighborhood kids you know have needs....

charity begins at home....sometimes we get so much into donations that we forget the ones nearest to us...
