stocks vs commodities question.

Reddit

So I just decided to throw a bit of money into the stock market and was planning on putting 20% commodities/China bear ETF such as WEAT, SOYB, USO, CORN, and YANG. 30% in QQQ, and 50% in SPY. Would putting money into the stock market and investing in commodities at the same time be a contradictory investment? I'm very new to trading and trying to make a good investment for my families future. Please explain this to me like I'm 5 because I'm basically stock illiterate.
