Strippers, guns, rap music, booty shaking, gangstas … why, it’s the most offensive, sexist

This NSFW commercial called “Hahn’s Homeboyz” begins to criticize Janice Hahn, a Los Angeles City Councilwoman running for a Democratic Congressional seat, for her proposal to use “taxpayer money” to hire former gang members in prison “so they could rape and kill again!” I mean, so they could teach current gang members how to quit the life.
