The liberals at the New York Times is constantly trying to figure out what ails the black community of NYC. The total collapse in marriages, the high crime, destruction of schools, chaos has to be blamed on someone. So they poke around until they can blame…slavery. Yes, that destroyed the families and caused crime! This obviously ignores the reality that black marriage/family rates mirrored the white rate until the Civil Rights Act when Uncle Sam became Big Daddy and everything fell apart.
Black children are also more at risk of being assaulted, seriously injured or killed by a parent than by a police officer, a neighborhood watchman or an irritated racist who hates rap music.
I picked this particular paragraph to illustrate how insane black professors who are let into the middle class/education class via our warped school systems. I used to live in the slums. I saw first hand how black children were raised by welfare mothers.
First: these children are assaulted and even killed by…black men who are not their fathers who live briefly with their welfare mothers! Yes, strangers let into the home for a free ride and free sex.
The second most dangerous person is…street thugs, other children, siblings and of course, welfare mommy. Not because anyone is ‘disciplining’ them to behave. They strike at them when the children are irritating which is quite different.
Stacey Patton (@DrStaceyPatton) is an assistant professor of multimedia journalism at Morgan State University and the author of the forthcoming “Spare the Kids: Why Whupping Children Won’t Save Black America,” from which this essay was adapted.
This sheltered person wants even less discipline. She thinks, if all those welfare moms and their in and out male sleeping buddies would just not hit the kiddies, the children will be well behaved.
What is worse about this stupid article in the fake news queen, the NYT, is the statement that black children are being harmed by ‘irritated racists’. Who? What? Where is this happening?
No mention of the many black gangs running rampant attacking people all over America. These are gangs of underage kiddies who are extremely violent and dangerous. We fear them, not ‘irritated racists’. And many of these black gangs are very racist and talk racism while assailing their helpless victims.
My black, middle-class adoptive mother often grumbled these words as she prepared to whup me for getting dirty, mouthing off, rolling my eyes, telling lies or any number of other childhood misbehaviors…By the time I was 12, I was in the state foster care system: case #KC114343… It is a common one, unfortunately. My adoptive mother, and generations of black parents like her, honestly believed that whupping children was a pillar of responsible black parenting.
This teacher had a crummy childhood and the State saved her from her abuser who wasn’t even her own mother and this woman’s boyfriends. She is a classic case of the ‘parentless child’ which we see in particular in black neighborhoods.
But if whupping children kept black people out of prison or safe from abusive cops, there would be no mass incarceration or police brutality. If beatings were a prerequisite for success, black people would be ruling the world.
This is called ‘jumping to conclusions’. This ‘professor’ got her position via black privilege. Universities are very anxious to hire black staff because it looks good. The black teachers then teach all sorts of stuff that makes things worse but who cares?
It is all about the numbers, showing ‘we have black staff’. Anyone who tells the truth about black inner city life is forbidden to set foot on many campuses and radicalized students taught by teachers like this one, will riot if anyone dares tell the truth in these ‘education ghettoes.’
It is a European idea that children are “born in sin” and should have the devil beaten out of them with a “rod of correction.” That brutality cascaded across other cultures through slavery, colonialism and religious indoctrination.
So everything lands in the lap of ‘slavery caused this.’ It wipes out 100+ years of history, jumping over all the 20th century. Yes, slavery caused this! Right! And it is therefore, unfixable since blacks are too stupid to stop behaving like slaves??? Is this what this black female is saying???? How racist.
It should not be surprising, then, that black American slaves, who endured the trauma of their own beatings, inherited their oppressors’ violence and, for centuries, passed down these parenting beliefs. This is one of the saddest untold stories in American history — the way in which the victims of racist oppression and violence have hurt the bodies of their own children in an effort to protect them from a hostile society.
Black children are nearly totally out of control now. They attack each other, neighbors, weak people, adults, the elderly, other ethnic groups, they steal, sell drugs, rap about being criminals, they resist arrest, break all possible laws and make dangerous, nasty neighbors and are systematically destroying our dying former industrial cities!
The hostility has been from THEM not outsiders. People flee them, people go to great lengths to avoid being anywhere near them. This is not ‘racism’ it is ‘naked fear’. And each generation is more violent than the mothers who bore them in the past.
And each generation has no real fathers anymore, either. This is a missing key element.
Between 2006 and 2015, more than 3,600 black children were killed as a result of maltreatment, according to the Administration for Children and Families. That’s an average of 360 children a year, three times higher than for other racial and ethnic groups. Many social workers and district attorneys I have talked to say it is not malicious parents intentionally hurting their kids who end up with convictions for child abuse or homicide; it is those who started spanking and escalated as the child got bigger.
Good lord. These ‘social workers’ obviously are ideologically driven. Do black mothers (fathers are nearly totally unattached by the time the kids reach age 12) beat their teenage sons???? Good lord. These semi-orphans whose daddy is the State beat each other, their siblings, their mothers, their neighbors, their teachers, they fight the cops, too, for that matter.
The utter chaos that these fatherless children are creating is systematically destroying the black community. Sons raised with no fathers end up doing the same as their missing fathers. Each year for 50 years, this got worse and worse and is now nearly terminally bad, that is, outside of the elites at the very top who are black like Obama, marriage no longer exists.
The professor should be asking, ‘Why was I raised by a violent person who wasn’t my family?’ Not, ‘Black families have more discipline than white families.’ Because they don’t have this, they have violence in the home but that is due to the violence all over the place by everyone including rather small children who do some terrible things sometimes including killing other children or even adults.
This social chaos is destructive. And won’t stop due to ‘let’s be gentle’ rules, right now, black schools have near zero control of the students who fight with the teachers and staff and even cops…when I was young, no cops worked inside schools!
Acting as if this new social situation is normal is crazy. And blaming events from over 150 years ago is insane. And the NYT staff and owners would rather commit suicide than send their precious kiddies to any schools run by and dominated by black staff and students.
Their children won’t survive. And they know it. And they know exactly who is being the most violent. And it isn’t the teachers.
