Are we like swine going over the hill?

Recently, I examined one of the most self-depicting videos that characterized the authentication of our moral demise. Which, if not checked, puts us on the threshold to the point of no return on that slippery slope to self-genocide.
The video, one with the likes I haven’t seen in quite a while, highlights a door to an intermediary Black holocaust as it relates to the behavior of us as a people.
We really are going over the cliff and one of the most heartrending parts about is a lot of us don’t even know or care to know about it!
The video is of five young boys on the streets free styling (a term used to mean unrehearsed rapping) or battling as they rapped about performing oral sex on other males.
I wonder if they even know that both of these forms and function are similar to the antique performance of flyting. This style of poetic expression has been documented as leading into twisted acts of pleasures.
Flyting is a ritual, poetic exchange of insults practiced mainly between the 5th and 16th centuries. The root is the Old English word flitan meaning quarrel (from Old Norse word flyta meaning provocation). Examples of flyting are found throughout Norse(Scandinavian), Anglo-Saxon and Medieval literature involving both historical and mythological figures. The exchanges would become extremely provocative, often involving accusations of cowardice or sexual perversion. wikipedia.org
Is this their way of expressing their feelings in a love song?.
To some this may be considered a sickening display of repulsive ignorance and self-genocide presented as a kindred form of love.
Perhaps that is why some acts of love should be left behind the doors of those who they are intended for and not out in the open for public display to be consumed for a later production as a reality show titled ‘Hi aya, We’re the Use 2 B’s’.
We should have known that more sooner than later, this type of behavior was, in the Jamaican vernacular, “soon come.”
“and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.” – Romans 1:27 (NASB)
For this I/Me generation of people who believes and thinks that the world revolves around them and that they are all that and a bag of chips who invented weird and bizarre conducts, I have another thought for you- just go and read a few books of the Bible; here are a few: Genesis 30:37-39, Numbers 22:28-30, 1 Kings 18:25-27, Judges 19:22-30 and 4 Kings 2:23-24.
I would have never thought that there would be a day in my life time when young Black boys and young Black girls exhibit behaviors equated to the life styles and the times of Sodom and Gomorrah.
“Before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, surrounded the house, both young and old, all the people from every quarter; and they called to Lot and said to him, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us that we may have relations with them.” – Genesis 19:4-6 (NASB)
Day after day the documented occurrences including life styles and behaviors that are recorded in the Bible that were written well over 3500 years ago are on display right now before our very eyes!
To those who are not alarmed and squeamish about the unveiling of these prerecorded dictates, they have no fear maybe because they believe in what THE WORD says: “Then He told them a parable: “Behold the fig tree and all the trees; as soon as they put forth leaves, you see it and know for yourselves that summer is now near. “So you also, when you see these things happening, recognize that the kingdom of God is near. “Truly I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all things take place. “Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will not pass away. Luke 21:29-33 (NASB)
