It's because of (c)rap and hip hop 'culture' that demeans women.

This isn't the fault of rap music. This attitude is caused by coaches that believe they and their players are Gods to be worshiped and admired. It's also caused by parents that believe their little baby is so precious,unique and special. It also comes from permissive parents that believe they and their spawn can do anything they damn well please. Suffice to say,this attitude is propagated by those whom are self absorbed and believe that their sh*t doesn't stink.

And this attitude is compounded by the fact these people live in a sh*thole town that worships football as a religion.

Btw, I hate rap.

you got it right ....along with a major lack of parenting, not to mention, the parents with misplaced priorities, placing football above all else.

they know damn well what they did....that was proved when the other guys, in the video, were talking about it and referred to it as " rape ".
