#2958058 Statement by AP

Posted by scpanther22 on Today, 01:51 PM

I also remember reading this article awhile back. Maybe some here will find it interesting in light of the AP case

Then there are what some researchers call “lumping problems”—when studies are reported as being about spanking but aren’t really about spanking. A 2002 meta-analysis scrutinized data from 88 studies and reported that although physical punishment makes kids more immediately compliant, it also makes them more aggressive in the short and long term and more likely to engage in criminal behavior as adults. This analysis has been cited as some of the strongest, most comprehensive evidence that spanking is dangerous, but it actually looked at far more than just spanking: In 16 percent of the studies, parents were hitting their kids with objects, not with the palms of their hands. It also included punishments such as pinching and slapping. It doesn’t surprise me that kids who are hit with objects or pinched or slapped end up more screwed up than kids who aren’t. But it’s misleading to conclude that these kids were worse off because they were spanked.

#2953535 Charles Barkley 's messed up comments on AP beating his kid

Posted by scpanther22 on 14 September 2014 - 09:40 PM

Most of the black commentators on NFL countdown pretty much said the same thing this morning. I didn't watch the entire video but I did read the transcript on the article and I do think there's a cultural ,racial and even generational component that shouldn't be ignored when people have these types of discussions. (this is no excuse for abuse as Barkely said he went too far)




#2944138 Are northerners more racist than southerners?

Posted by scpanther22 on 11 September 2014 - 04:51 PM

Black people that I've met from Europe and Africa have told me that black Americans are portrayed positively across the globe. That's probably because they see Oprah, Jordan and Lebron but I've seen documentaries that confirm this. I wouldn't be surprised either way.

In any event, I just think its strange. Its like me hating Original Austrians. Lol.

 

Funny thing is in my experience Africans have told me they don't like African Americans. I talked to an Nigerian girl once and her father told me he didn't like me because I'm black...American black.

 

I just kind of stared at him in confusion. lol




#2941742 Goodell will be fired/resign by next week

Posted by scpanther22 on 10 September 2014 - 05:11 PM

As mentioned, that was before the video came out.

 

And as of today, you've got NOW lobbying for Goodell to be out and ESPN giving blanket coverage of this story.  They're repeatedly playing the interview where Goodell says "no one in the NFL has seen it" over and over.

 

Don't be too shocked if you see politicians from both sides calling for Goodell's ouster shortly.

 

This isn't just going away.

 

it's time for the pile on.

 

Organizations we've never heard of, politicians from all over will unite to take a stand on this

 

of course my cynical side is saying most of this will happen because it's an easy way for politicians to score brownie points with the press and public looking for someone to stand up for them

why does this necessarily precipitate his ouster

 

Media/public want's blood.

Posted by scpanther22 on 08 September 2014 - 12:07 PM

Personally I hate when corporations try to appeal to me with hip-hop just because im black.  I've seen that cheerios commercial with Nelly rapping and its the worst. Like a rapping bee is going to make me want cheerios.




#2929877 The US: Are Her Golden Days Ahead, or Her Best Days are Behind?

Posted by scpanther22 on 06 September 2014 - 11:14 PM

We need to encourage competition in business. competition spurs innovation.

 

People are still selling the younger generation on the American dream and I think a lot of them are catching that it doesn't really exist or at least doesn't exist the way some would like to believe.

 

whats a four year college degree now if there's no opportunity once you get out of school? This is where I usually hear older people say something along the lines of "well if there's no opportunity make one" all the while forgetting that start-up company that existed in their day is now a billion dollar company with GDP of more than entire countries. The barriers of entry are next to impossible to penetrate in certain markets and it's not because there isn't opportunity but only because there are a couple of companies that have a monopoly on the whole thing

I'm having 80s and 90s flashbacks.

believe it or not… The Greatest American Hero is poised to fight another day.

According to our sister site Deadline, Fox has given a put pilot order (i.e. virtually guaranteed to air) to a remake of the unlikely superhero series, which ran for three seasons on ABC in the early 1980s
