Once again statistics ignore the real cause of a problem. If minority children are being spanked more than whites, then the minority children are not being taught proper manners by their parents, which doesn't surprise me in the least.

Tell me bdcrotty...what would surprise you?
Anything...say...on a racial level?

Let's start with.....

It was a hot sultry night on the plantation. The humidity simply plastered the tight ill-fitting cotton slacks against Buck's muscular pitch black skin. Earlier that afternoon he was caned by the overseer, torrid sweat rolling down his godlike physique as the woos slammed once more against his side in the unforgiving sun of the South.

Kids arent being spanked enough today! Kids today are given too many rights...they dont have the fear of god when it comes to their parents. The thought of my mom beating my ass when I got home was always a good deterrent. SMACK EM'!!!

Spankings? Minorities hit hardest? Get a life! Look around you, folksies, the vast majority of felony crimes and homicides are committed by minorities. That's why minorities are the majority in the prison system. Maybe if some of these kids get whacked from time to time for misbehaving in school, a few may get through life without killing or robbing anyone. Don't whine racism to me ...just check out the FBI's annual crime reports. For the weak minded, try Google - it's so easy even a Hawaiian can do it.

Agree!!! Spare the rod, spoil the child. These bleeding heart liberals who make our laws have given children more rights than adults have and we wonder why this nation is in such a MESS!!!!!!!!!!

In the South, it would seem that a HUGE percent of the population IS other than white....... so if you have more non-white students, YEAH, they are going to be a majority of who gets spankings *rolling my eyes*.... numbers can be 'tweaked' to support whatever statistic these idiots are trying to 'prove'.....

What are we going to be told when Whites are acknowledged as being the MINORITY?

In most of Hawaii caucasion ("white") people ARE a minority. And haoles are often reviled and discriminated against. And as a member of this minoriy I have always found it refreshing. Helps to have a perspective...

Spare the rod, spoil the child.

The notion that children have RIGHTS is nauseating, a fiction pushed by Cry Baby Boomers who don't have the guts or integrity to take RESPONSIBILITY for raising children, so they want the COURTS to do it for them.

No wonder Cry Baby Boomers make such lousy parents.

Oh Pohaku! You live in Hawaii where both parents have to work in order to survive. How could you say this even in sarcasm?

Shocking! A child got spanked in Texas! The state with the highest capitol punishment rate. Guess that miscreant 3 y/o is headed to the death penalty one day.

Kids now don't have the respect that they did before for their elders or those in charge. I blame the parents of those kids for acting up. Middle and High schoolers get into their heads that they have a ton of rights which include breaking the law and they are not held accountable because they are minors. If a kid acts up and is disrespectful they should be punished. I don't mean beat the kid, but a rap on the knuckles or something similar would be justified on repeat offenders. Or they could be subject to physical activity like pushups or something. Main point is that they need to understand that there are consequences for their actions.

I am against corporal punishment for anyone but my impostors. As for the DOE, most of the teachers deserve a good beating for their lousy results and performance.
