Within the last week a horrible video surfaced on the online media site WorldStarHipHop.com. It was of a man coercing a mentally challenged female into having sex. This video was posted in the early afternoon hours of june 8th and removed very quickly after a quick backlash from people . It looked as tho it was done by teenagers or adults in their early to late 20's . The female who you could tell was very sweet but mentally challenged was talked into sex by the young men telling her it was going to be fun and it was a game to which she smiled and went along with it

The young men in the video were laughing and saying they were going to f**k retared. The heading of the video was entitled “Retards Need Sex Too.” The video is so disgusting that many (including myself) couldn’t make it past a few minutes of the video. The fact that the act happened is vile. The fact that an online media site would upload it and promote it to the public is sickening. It would be surprising if this was any other site other than WorldStarHipHop.com. They have a record of uploading and promoting such videos. This video, for many, has been the tipping point and a rallying point for a call to action.

There are some things that we all should know are wrong. Things like sexually exploiting minors or the mentally ill. The administrators of WorldStarHipHop.com apparently do not share these standards of human decency. For years now, WSHH has not simply been a source for “Hip Hop and Urban Media” as the site’s byline claims, but a clearinghouse for the worst of what “Urban America” is plagued with. This is because WSHH does not employ any sort of filter for its content, and selects content based on only two factors: (1) Paid placement, or (2) shock value. As a result, WSHH does not present an accurate portrait of Urban America, but only its most troubled segments. Here, you will find mentally ill adults and teenagers stripping naked in the streets, underage girls fighting and tearing each others clothes off, and people doing some of the most disgusting things you can imagine. Much of this content is prosecutable under child pornography laws, while much more of it is simply offensive or of no redeeming social value. Occasionally, WSHH attempts to promote something responsible, but it is clear that this isn’t the site you visit for social commentary and community activism. In fact, because of tabloid-type popularity of the site, young people across the country routinely film (or script) events that are intended for WSHH. In fact, if you’ve been privy to witness a street fight among high schoolers, you’ve almost certainly heard someone yell “Worldstar!” while onlookers film what often becomes a brutal beating. The desire to “go viral” via WSHH has led many young people to attend to produce the most sensational videos possible, even going so far as to script fights or to secretly record females of questionable age in sexual acts. This isn’t the exception to the rule. This is the norm.

We’re not saying that people shouldn’t watch independent hip hop videos (WSHH features many of these at a cost, starting at about $1500 per video) or that there’s something inherently wrong with watching women dance provocatively. We’re saying there should be some things that are clearly unacceptable, and WSHH doesn’t know those distinctions. WSHH has a history of such offenses. How they have survived this long without criminal prosecution is mind-boggling. But it can’t go on any longer. It’s time that it stop.

For those who are viewers of World Star Hip Hop we are asking that you patronize other media outlets (TheGrio.com, TheRoot.com, NewsOne.com, etc) if you are interested in new relevant to the Black community. If you are interested in Hip Hop or even women (of age) shaking their butts there are enough videos on youtube.com. We ask you to go to these other sites until World Star Hip Hop institutes a policy against objectionable content specifically against anything involving people filmed without their consent, people under 21, and the mentally ill. We also ask you to question and hold accountable the advertisers of World Star Hip Hop. Let them know that this type of exploitation is not acceptable.

Why not try and fix the problems at the heart of society?

Rather than ban an exploitative (read: capitalist) company? I don't think the shit they do is worse than Shell Oil, and you let them motherfuckers practically run the world.

WSHH is all entertainment! That's the point of it. People view violence and stupidity as a form of entertainment. Yes, it displays blacks in a negative way but who're the people unloading the videos?

We can't move forward unless we admit the truth about ourselves first.

^You're correct! "Hip Hop" applies to music but in the case of WSHH, violence and ghetto behavior is what makes hip hop negative. It perpetuates the stereotype that black people have no honor.

It's sad to see whites watching this and I'm next to them. Regarding of who I am as a person, they'll think I'm one of them. There's absolutely no escape.

I think i saw ironman beat a 5 year old to death with a waka flocka flame vinyl on wshh.

I'm sorry but I'm not signing anything that undermines our 1st Amendment or Constitution.

If you have a problem with a specific business engaging in illegal activity or exploiting children - why not contact the DA or a local FBI branch?

Never been a fan of change.org - seems like another form of armchair activism. Plus they are no longer a legitimate grassroots movement ever since all of the VC money poured in.

This is from a leaked compnay document..
