Pimps and Mobstaz in Your Local Schools

Top Tier Gear USA


Imagine overhearing your 9-year-old son say the words “pimp” and “mobstaz.”

You’d probably think he heard those words from a friend at school, or from television.

Imagine your surprise when you realized your son was reading those words from his 4th grade homework assignment.

Last week, Vermilion Parish, Louisiana parent Brittney Badeaux was helping her son with his homework when she overheard him say the offensive words.

“I couldn’t believe it at first – hearing him read it to me,” she told Fox News. “So I looked at the paper and read the entire article. It was filled with Ebonics. It was really inappropriate for my child,” Badeaux said. “He doesn’t’ know what a pimp or mobster is.”

The assignment consisted of a worksheet with different contextual examples and takes on the word “twist.” There’s a paragraph on the dancing “The Twist” and tornadoes.  It also included a paragraph about “Twista” – a rapper with the group Speedknot Mobstaz who performs a song titled “Po-Pimp.”

Badeaux also expressed concerns about the school sending home a worksheet that intentionally misspelled words.

“I try to teach him morals and respect and to speak correctly,” she added. “It’s hard for a fourth grader to understand Ebonics when you’re trying to teach him how to spell and write correctly.”

School officials told the news site the lesson was considered age appropriate according to the new national Common Core standards and is aligned to fourth grade English standards.

Vermillion Parish Superintendent Jerome Payau said the “Po-Pimp” worksheet is designed to encourage discussion of “real world texts.”

“The Common Core curriculum, like it or not – we have to make our students successful,” he said, according to Fox News.

“Out of context, this word is inappropriate,” Puyau said. “However, within the Common Core standards, they do want us to discuss real world texts.”

The Common Core State Standards initiative is a plan devised by the nation’s governors and backed by the Obama administration to set a uniform standard for grades K-12. In practice, it will ensure that every child in the nation reaches the same level of learning. So far, 45 states have agreed to use Common Core – including Louisiana. It has encountered serious pushback from conservative lawmakers and parents who worry that the new standards aren’t rigorous, rollback states’ rights and teach inappropriate subjects.

Speaking of inappropriate subjects, last week a parent in Arizona raised concerns about an erotic novel that was assigned as a “Common Core aligned” 10th grade reading material.

Inappropriate language, erotic literature, Ebonics, misspellings, poor grammar, and fuzzy math – one has to wonder what else Common Core “standards” have in store for our children.

  • Well there you have it, more wonderful things to be found in Commie Core.

    Whether it is crude or not it IS a dialect in common use, and kids enjoy learning about dialects because it is like speaking in code. There are plenty of unique ways brown people speak English say that are fun to learn but you have to research beyond rap lyrics.

    If the assignment had been introducing Yiddish phrases I doubt there would have been an uproar. Some of those Yid phrases are pretty raunchy too, especially when delivered with a raised eyebrow.

    On second thought maybe it’s the raised eyebrow that is offensive.

    Try this simple test. Look at yourself in the mirror and say in a deep resonant voice, “Billy, run the Stars and Stripes up the flagpole.” Now say it with a half-smile and a raised eyebrow. See what I mean?

    Yo dudes! Gimmee 5!
    Me can rap too yall know but for the purposes of communico I’ll try 2 finish my post in Queen’s english LOL.
    Every group of people even public schoolboys have a slang, a lingo, a way of communication only understood by insiders. Its not wrong, it just is.
    Google spoils the fun if you can now search any street style banter and learn exactly what it means. Rapping is fun, never offensive, yet if offended please play a different record.
    My favourite party trick is to put on a scottish accent but a better use of practice time would have been to learn a foreign language. Can get by in french and swedish, know some chinese, german and arabic.
    But do you ‘get me’ for suggesting spanish lessons for the students instead of studying the ‘patter of the pimp’?
    Respect (fist sign)!
    Keep da faith.
    So help me Jah.

    Subject Shazam.
    The latest update on the iphone is working well and everyone without fail I demonstrate the app to is spellbound. I can go into any public house in UK and get free drinks thanks to my iphone tricks. Ability to solve the Rubic’s Cube works similar wonders. Some people can quote Bible verses like Google but this ability is beyond me LOL.
    Average performance in karaoke but points are gained for duplicating someone else eg Robbie Williams, Witney Houston, Tupac etc. Me? Surely its far better to develop your own style, stage presence, jokes, catch phrases, personality and above all, sing in YOUR voice, talk in YOUR accent. Apologies my accent is starting to grate on you and my ego is overblown to the point I dream you are shazaming me.
    But just buy the app. Links to itunes and printed song lyrics.
    Its music to my ears LOL.

  • COMMON CORE is all about getting your children USED to the IDEA of child molesters raping them,and when their done,your child will think being raped by an adult is how life is supposed to be,IF THEIR were any men left in america,the schools would be scared to death to teach this kind of preverted crap to their kids,BUT THE CHILD PREDITORS have won ,haven’t they……………..
