Tommy Sotomayor, an Atlanta-based radio host and YouTuber recently took to his YouTube account and made shocking accusations about black women, young gay men and the black community.

A video of a group of teenage boys rapping about oral sex has surfaced on the internet. In that clip, the teenagers offer striking and explicit detail about having oral sex with men.

As Clutch Magazine points out, Sotomayor used the video and the teenage boys as an example to blame single black women for young gay men and to state that black women have failed.

“I want to say this before I start off: I have no problem with a person’s sεxual orientation or a person’s want or need for sεxual experimentation," he said. "Now with that said, these boys are the reason why we need to stop claiming that black children don’t need their fathers.”

He then added that single black mothers oftentimes take credit for rearing noteworthy children, but they blame absent fathers when the children experience challenges. He also goes on to claim that the black race has become androgynous and claimed that black women have failed.

“The black race looks like the 80s," he said. "You don’t know who is what. The women look like men, the men look like women."

Sotomayor is no stranger to controversy. When Jason Collins made headlines for coming out, Sotomayor called the NBA veteeran "a liar" and "a fraud."

His controversial comments on his show has also resulted in a Tampa, Fla. woman petitioning to have his show banned.
