“Now Go to School Boys”…

The mother Tonette Mouton was recently given viral reviews from what the world considered as a “humiliating” rap for her two sons that are returning to school this fall. What shocks me is that what the world considers is an embarrassment, can actually be seen as a powerful testimony for a single parent.

The 8th grade athlete (Dillion), and 12th grade art student (Donovan) were reluctant to give their mother a back to school photo …feeling that like most teens, they were getting “too old” to be seen as babies. But for this proud and active parent that was not the case, so she decided with the help of her oldest son to create a rap, using her son Donovan’s beat and give them a message of encouragement–even giving mention to the schools that they were attending.

In the state of Louisiana, where the black male high school graduation statistic rate is 49%, being able to see one son soon prepare for highschool, while the other is in preparation for college is an achievement that deserves more than just song and dance. The true humiliation would come from her sons (all three of whom have no trace of any criminal record or activities) were now being statistically labled as drop-outs and not RETURNING student.

Until next time my brothers, continue to–“Go to school Boys”….
