(WARNING: This story includes a video and rap song lyrics of a sexually explicit nature and may offend some readers.)
At its 2013 national convention in Atlanta last week, the National Education Association encouraged teachers to dance to a sexually explicit rap song that featured the "N"-word and declared, "When it's over you ain't gon need ya vibrator."
The NEA, a nationwide labor union that represents public school teachers, played the song titled, "Wobble," by V.I.C. at its "Raise Your Hand" conference – which was publicized as an event focused on "empowering educators to lead."
In a video of the incident posted by EAG News, dozens of union delegates – mostly women – can be seen enthusiastically boogying and shaking their backsides to the lewd rap lyrics.
At the same conference, NEA President Dennis Van Roekel asked a massive crowd, "Do you believe that our 3 million members know how to improve student success? Do you?! Do you?!
"Do you believe this is our time to create union-led change for our classrooms? Do you?!
"Then I ask you to raise your hand for the success of all students. Raise your hand for great public schools and social justice.
"Raise your hand for America's educators! For America's future! NEA, raise your hand!"
NEA delegates also honored California Gov. Jerry Brown as "America's Greatest Education Governor."
The rap song lyrics include:
I got em' shakin their boobies like congos,
Man I'm shaking the city like quakes.
The haters blue the face like gonzo,
Cause I'm rakin' a cake so let's bake.
I'm taking the game, the games mine.
Ya'll witness a change it's my time.
Yea I'm new to the game but ya'll might wanna save ya whack raps daylight saving time
I could dance homie, I don't two-step,
Ya'll looking at something like a true player.
A girl told me that a man that could dance might could possibly get down with the tool in his pants.
Now all my ladies let me see you vibrate.
And when it's over you ain't gon' need ya vibrator.
Cause I'm a pro, make ya bend ya back low den just pound it real fast just like purkulator
Girl wobble it, and I'm a gobble it.
I see you movin your head, your head bobblin'
We can cradle the bed I'm straight rockin' it
The girls say my head like the head of a rocket ship
God d-mn, I'm so explicit, but I can't help it my flow ridiculous
Boy got a gift like it gotta be Christmas
Swag don't miss like he gotta be gifted
The girls brought cameras and they want pictures
And they gon frame em to see dat nigga
Little to the bed while I'm sayin' my scriptures
Cause I leave ya holy like ya pray in the temple
Want beat? I move with the lead of a pencil
And mine won't miss you, goodnight kiss you
Take a band back, cause you got pistols
And I don't think bounty picker up these issues
