Corporal Punishment (I. e. disciplining children via physical means) or "Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission" Supreme Court case or "Is Tyler Perry hurting the black community via his movies?"
I'm doing an oral interview with a person I've yet to choose. I'm also currently attending Howard University, a majority and historically black school, so I want to know which topic I should choose. Which topic is the best to discuss with an older individual?
My opinions on the subject are as follows:
I believe corporal punishment (ie beatings, whup'ns, spankings, etc) are too barbaric nowadays. I think the black community is too used to using it as a form of discipline without logic. It's a leftover technique from slavery and is justified by the bible. The biblical justification isn't an excuse though as in the past slave masters used other verses to justify everything from slavery to murdering villages.
The "Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission" was a tough decision by the S. C but I sided with the cake shop owners because they offered to provide a premade cake just not make one.
I hate Tyler Perry. He's done nothing but hurt the black community by portraying black men as nothing more than abusive monsters, child molesters and killers. I think he's making money off the black women that hate black men and that sickens me. I think the only people that defend him are the black women that agree with his attitude and the black men who overestimate the amount of jobs he provides.
