One of our community trips was reading to underpriveledged children at a shelter. I forget the name of the shelter but it was essentially a free preschool for the children of unwed teenage mothers (baby mamas, whores, hos, skanks, hoodrats, sluts...and women in bad situations).... Anyway so we arrive there for this fieldtrip which is noticibly different from my school.
I don't want to be racist and will write this disclaimer now. The room I was in had only black kids in it. Not to say other rooms didn't have other kids of other religions, races, orientations, w/e...but mine had like 8-10 little black kids. Awesome kids too. I knew I would like them becuase they only argued about sensible things. Like Who gets to be Spider-man.
Not long after I got ther this fight broke out, and was almost immediately reconciled by the teacher. However it had a lasting impressions on me. A) cuz these were like 6 y/os cussing and fist fighting. When I was 6 y/o do you know what I did for conflict resolution? I cried! B) Because it made me wonder how many fist fights have been started in the name of deciding "who Spida-man"...ps...I'm Spider-man.
When we got into the class we had to wait until after the kids were done with their food and activities to read to them. Basically we hung out with them all day. So I colored. The girl next to me. I don't remember had a trifling issue with the other girls, in that they be triflin'.

....yeah..so..here's the picture already
This girl really hates how bitches be triflin' and I totally agree. In fact she was the triflin' police...Which correct me if I'm wrong, is triflin'
So then I read these kids their story (it was a Seasame Street Book) and they were actually quiet for like 10min.
I felt soo adult and helpful and like wow I inspired these dumbass kids with Seasame Street and now they won't be so dumb. Then I made the mistake of breaking the silence barrier.
So I gave the book to the kids and prepared to rejoin my class. On the way out I saw one of the kids drawing a dick on the book cover...Art is subjective...
So I didn't have videos in my repretoire that fit this exactly persay but here are videos which are either seasame street or ghetto related
**note** videos not mine...but you know that..
