Sorry, I have to disagree here. NO. OTHER. COMMUNITY has 75% of their children being born to single parent households, less singing odes to it. NOT. ONE. So "Girls Gone Wild" or no... there is something amiss with our kids. Something that does not (or has not) plagued other communities. This is solely OUR issue. That said, the fact that it's deeper is obvious and, again, not the topic of this particular discussion. The topic of discussion is the song, and why some of us think it's disgusting.
