Parents Angry About Gucci Mane School Visit


Last week, for reasons unknown, rapper Gucci Mane was invited to speak at Crawford Long middle school in Atlanta for career day [click here you missed that].

Here's the gag: Crawford Long parents had no idea Gucci had been invited to speak to their children and they are not amused...

One parent told WSBTV
“How do you justify bringing someone who is not even at the top of his game in the rap industry and who has a rap sheet because he's been in so much legal trouble?”
According to the report most of the parents found out through postings on Facebook and Twitter.

Atlanta Public Schools vowed to investigate telling WSBTV
"We want to make sure people who serve as role models to our students are in line with our ethical and integrity standards."

2:06 It was probably the teachers who ppop to his music in the club and screw men who act like him when their not screwing dumb american children. The school system sucks and needs to be revamped.

I need to know when the school started notifying parents about guest speakers coming to the school. When I was in school I remember getting permission slips to go on field trips but never one notifying my parents about a specific speaker coming to the school; and second, if the parents are doing their jobs in the home teaching the children right from wrong and fact from fiction then it shouldn't matter who the guest speaker is because the children would have enough information not to be influenced. On a lighter note, I'm glad that they didn't get that fool Suge Knight as a guest speaker.

This could be a win win for those kids..."message" kids this is what you could end up being when you get high, throw girls out of moving cars, and you let wacka flocka's mama handle your career. I think that it was a really good look for the kids to see how you can have it or something like it and then lose it all in a year in a half.

@2:25 exactly

I bet these are the same parents who let their children LISTEN to Gucci Mane and other offensive music but they have problem with him coming to speak at the school for career day??? I'm confused???

I hope the second 2:12 doesn't have children, a more false misguided statement couldn't of been made.

Anonymous said...

Neither were those kids amused.
Those kids looking at him thinking, "speak english".
We all know Gucci just enrolled in that school, why cant ya'll let him be great on his first day?
I'm sure he was actually just introducing himself as a new student in class, he just picking up where he left off.

So if he was on top it would be ok then huh? Hope these same complainers help their kids with their HW and don't let them out the house with saggy pants.

APS blocked TI from doing same. Yet all the other school districts let him speak...OK bad example cuz he went BACK to jail after all that... lol.

Gucci had a few questions for the kids: Is reading fundamental and would Hooked on Phonics be a good investment for him. Do they feel that this school meets the national education standards and would they embrace him as one of their own if he enrolled for the spring term? In addition, do they frown upon unmarried pregnant students??

"and that class is what you do NOT grow up to me"

- teacher

I wonder how many times he had to stop himself from saying BURRR

Anonymous said...

But the important question is, what did he say to the kids? If he owned up to his shortcomings and delivered a positive message, then please explain to me what harm was done?

I'd be mad if this crusty roach looking mofo came to a school where my child was to give a speech too! This "nicca" is Not a KRS-One or a Nas type of rapper. He's a very bad role model and kids that age don't need to be influenced by his academically challenged ass!

It doesn't matter that some of the parents let their kids listen to this rapper.It doesnt matter that some of the parents might be fans. The truth is some of these childrens parents DO CARE and this sh*t doesn't fly with them.The real problem is some one that works for the school thought it was a good idea to invite this man to speak to children! WHY? When I was in middle school we had speakers come in to give the standard don't mess up like me speeches. We had ex convicts come in and explain how they ended up on the wrong path,how horrible jail was,the terrible consequences of all their decisions and how REMORSEFUL they were for all the wrong things they did. Gucci ain't even remorseful of that stupid tattoo let alone pushing a person out of a moving vehicle.

He is one of the ugliest motherfuckers I have ever seen. For real, he is atrocious and monsterous looking.

I said it once, and I'll say it again,whoever invited this clown, to this school need to be Fired... Immediately! LoL. I wonder if some, of the children came home and asked their mom or dad, if they could get a Ice Cream tatted on their face???

2:55 he is just the type of guy that needs to come to those kids school and talk about how stupid it is to be on top one day and lose everything the next day because of being in the club's making it rain, popping bottles, and just being a plain ass. He could also tell them that if you don't get your education then you won't be anything more then a bum on the street.

Some teachers are male, you know. Or are you saying all the male teachers are gay?

I bet if crack man, hustler, gunslinger turned entrepreneur JAY-Z came to speak at a school it would be OKAY!

Bring a Goon to school day. These are the "Role Models" are children are bombarded with. We allow them to be brainwashed by this garbage and nonsense. But when we buy this crap, we have ourselves to blame

Real education is common sense, street smarts. If you really wanna teach the kids, take em to the streets and let em see how it is if they get on drugs or don't do something with their life. Scared Straight be workin ok? I AINT MAD AT GUCCI.

Okay, good...but now they need to get mad about the trash killing off Black communities with gun violence and drugs. Or the young, uneducated girls spreading it open for said trash and having unwanted babies. How bout they get mad at that too?

How could any decent loving parent respect a grown man with a Ice Cream cone tatted on the side of his face? Humpf... I would've been mad too.

Anonymous said...

permission slips yes, but back in our day the schools didn't invite guests speakers with known ciminal records. T.I. and Gucci both have well publicized arrests and criminal activity. Neither should have been allowed to speak to any youth.

Evidence T.I. only spoke to the kids cuz he had to: ever since he's been free, his ass aint stepped foot in a school (rightfully so).

Tracy, you mean ENEMIES? Lol, I know you're not perfect, Sis none of us are and your past should never EVER prevent you from spreading God's word. I love that you post scriptures---Ppl like me who click on gossip sites instead of opening my Bible could use it.

^^ T.I being invited probably wouldn't be as upsetting to the Fan-parents,
T.I is a criminal but he does at least talk a decent game, dude at least attempts to appear like he has good morals about SOME things, T.I is arrogant and annoying but at least the majority of his media exposure isn't thug sh*t, Gucci on the other hand?
I can't believe the name alone wasn't a reason to reject him as a guest, superficial name, thug status, thug career, ugly thug face....
What beneficial lesson does he offer kids in school.

@3:20 PM I had the same type of speakers come to my school when I was in middle school. If this guy truly changed his life around it could be very positive. Hey, it worked for me. Because of those ex-cons and drug addicts that came to my school, I never smoked a cigarette, had a joint, or took any other form of drug a day in my life.

Anonymous said...

@9:21 plenty of criminals don't drink or smoke so what's your point

@8:51 TI sounds like a retarded illiterate trying to sound educated which makes him look even more stupid among people who are really educated.

Anonymous said...

People can try to bring down this man and call him stupid, but atleast he took out a few minutes of the day to give back to his community. Y'all don't know wtf he said to those kids, for all y'all know he could of told them to not be like him. And parents should be role models, it shouldn't matter what type of music they listen to or what they look at on tv. And last time I checked I didn't hear anyone else doing this in 2013

Shouldn't the parents be worried about motherfuckers shooting their child's bus driver and kidnapping their child! from the damn bus? Who gives a fuck if someone came to talk to a fucking class!! Stupid ass parents have thier priorities fucked up!!!

___________________________________________________you got me thinking,my grandmother works in the school system.She said some of the biggest sluts are those young teachers.After school,they go to the bars and clubs and go home with random dudes.Some come to school still hungover from the weekend but they're supposed to be a role model for the chillen.

Anonymous said...

@10:21 This isn't just relegated to the schools in Atlanta but everywhere throughout the U.S. I would say easily over 60% of these teachers are just there to collect a check and most of them have personal problems that require professional help so the alcohol & drugs & random sexual encounters just help the days go by smoother for them.

Crawford Long School? Is this a satellite of Bishop Long school? If so I understand then. LOL

Otherwise as Nancy Kerrigan screamed when Tonya Harding put out that stick hit on her knee. WHY? WHY? WHY? WHY?

@9:41 PM I never said all criminals smoke and drink. The men and women that came to my school to speak to my class indulged in drugs, drinking, and smoking. Their story and their experience convinced me not to go down that path. Is that clear enough for you?

Anonymous said...

all yall hating on the act of SOMEONE taking the TIME to go speak to the KIDS need to get some help. Instead of sitting here on a blog criticizing, get up off your mean asses and go do something positive! Gucci is doing more than you are! Brrrrr

Anonymous said...

@2:08 I guess but you couldn't get this same message from your parents or grandparents or even adult relatives. Are you telling me you had nobody within your family circle that had this kind of positive insight that could inspire to do the same has these redeemed lowlifes that visited your school.

But I guess this "Their story and their experience convinced me not to go down that path." must've carried more weight than the other avenues I was speaking of regarding yourself. I'll chalk that up as different strokes for different folks.

Jay Z sure as hell don't go in the schools to talk to kids and yall worship the groung he and his fraudulent wife walk on!

Let Gucci be great, half of yall don't even do pop up visits or even study with your child but outraged about this man taking the time out of his day to do something positive!

Geesh the next generation will probably be one of the worst ones yet!!! Glad I do not have kids
