The video: If the boy didn't do anything, this was wrong; if he did, then the correction along with uncle's use of the camera and boy to send a message to others about gang bangin was a good thing. You say that it's a slave mentality - it's the slave mind? How is that when all races spank (as correction), and wrongfully beat (out of other issues), and it was done before slavery? You say that it may be a cause of violence in black youth? I ansered that in one of my previous posts. The majority of violence in the black community comes from drug use, drug dealing, gang/turf war; along with music that implants those same ideas. What about blacks before the 70's? You want to talk about children being violent? Who do you see on Nanny 911, talk shows, in public, etc. being violent? Kids who don't get spankings! And they're being violent towards their own parents! Blacks used to look in disbelief at white children who would act extremely violent towards their parents and siblins. Blacks had never experienced this because they did one thing those white parents didn't, spank their children consistently! These kids even go to the point of threatening their parents and siblins with knives. Those violent blacks you speak of would never touch their parents! After the whole media push of "don't spank your kids," less and less blacks now spank their kids. Now you see blacks who are being abused by their children, something that would've never happened decades ago. And that's what they get for following what's made popular. Part of the media manipulation was: "Studies show that children who get spankings are more likely to be violent when older." What they didn't tell you is who they studied, how they studied them, who conducted the study and who they have ties to, who financed the study, and so on. Could it be that this is true, if it is true, because more of the children who receive spankings are located in environments which contain more violence (are exposed to more types of other violence), blacks for instance, than those that do not? Like I said, who did they study? Did you know that if you spank/correct your child the right way when they're young, the less you will have to spank them in their later years (pretty much never)?
