Reply to "Police Brutality vs. Spanking your child (a.k.a child abuse)"

Statistically,a higher percentage of children's services cases (DCF and the like) are poor, non-white single mothers charged with abuse in varying forms.


Well, doesn't that contradict the stats posted by Herustar?

But even if a greater proportion of black parents were being charged for child abuse, I fail to see a deliberate conspiracy of any kind. It would be more of an indication of poverty and lack of education, it seems to me.

Actually, what I found more interesting in Herustar's stats was that most abusers of children were women. Is it because most of those women are single moms with little or no support? Or do those stats transcend income levels and marriage status? We'd need to see the numbers, but I'd bet that it's poorer women taking care of kids who's dads aren't around. Just a guess, though.
