AUSTELL, Ga. — Some of the youngest victims of September's flooding got a treat Saturday care of a popular rapper.

The Ludacris Foundation played host to a Christmas party at Austell Intermediate School. More than 500 children who were victimized in September floods gathered to get a personalized toy bear, play video games and take pictures with Santa. The foundation is an effort led by Atlanta-based rapper Ludacris, whose real name is Christopher Bridges.

"Merry Ludacrismas" is part of the Ludacris Foundation's Ludacares Initiative, dedicated to supporting kids and families in need during the holiday season.

I applaud him for helping the 500 children in need, but what about the millions of women objectified and young men taught the wrong values by his music?
