Apparently We Need To #FreeTheTwerkTeam
We here at TWiB.FM have made myriad jokes about twerkin’ but apparently shit just got real.
Remember a couple months ago when schools were suspending kids over Baauer‘s “Harlem Shake?” These mother truckers are back it again laying down the law on 33 students fromScripps Ranch High School in San Diego, California.
The students violated Scripps Ranch High‘s zero-tolerance sexual harassment policy which does not allow “verbal, visual, or physical conduct of a sexual nature made by someone from or in the educational setting.”
Full disclosure: We didn’t call it twerkin’ when I was a kid, but what the kids are doing in this video? Nothing new folks. Entire proms should’ve been suspended for the past 30 years at least. I’m not arguing that there shouldn’t be some sort of action — especially if this was done on school property — but 5 days of suspension and some folks not being able to go to prom and other harsh punishments?
Young folks tend to shake what their parents gave them. All of this, however, does not stop me from laughing hysterically at this nonsense. Oh and <insert random blame on hip-hop for these poor white girls. Without negroes where would they ever learn to do such things?>.
Well maybe that’s right. They sure didn’t learn what they did there from this horrendousness.
