Flesh Cut for Wrong Answers, Only in "American" Capitalism



ABC News, Birmingham, Alabama

A nine year old disabled Black child in Birmingham, Alabama was beaten by his teacher to the point his skin broke.

His crime?

He got six answers wrong on a test.

I am so sick of people saying that the U.S. is to "soft" and "liberal." This says the opposite I believe. The person who beat this child, is probably a conservative. It is probably the same kind of person that tells youth who drop out of school, or later can't get jobs that its "their fault."

I sarcastically say, "nothing encourages young people to stay in school like knowing they can have their flesh cut for missing test questions."

This capitalism, this "American" version of it with tough love, "compassion is weakness and mental illness" rhetoric is disgusting. This child alone is case enough for a revolution.

unfortunately ridicule of pwds (people with dis-abilities) is rather rampant, and is not limited to conservatives. i developed a dis-ability later in life and have had to learn to live with an extreme change in social status because of it. the humiliations are a daily occurrence-- almost every time i leave the house, and sadly, progressive, leftist, human rights activists are often the worst offenders. it got so bad, i started to keep a blog on the experience. i can't write fast enough.
