Black student’s hands duct taped together for not washing them?

At a school in Chicago a four year old black child had his hands duct taped together because he refused to take a nap, and he didn’t want to wash his hands.

Rappers plea: Fathers spend time with your kids

Rappers plea: Fathers take care of your kids

Everyone including me is quick to bash Hip Hop for all of the negativity it puts out there so I think it’s only right we give it love when it puts positive messages out there. Check out this video by Scram Carolina titled Deadbeat Daddys in which he implores fathers to spend time with their children. His song can do something many of us can’t and that’s reach these young men in a langauge they understand.

Here at AA reports we never believed 14 year old C.J. Jones killed his entire family and then killed himself.
