I'm white, and I believe in spanking your children when you feel it's necessary. That's part of the problem today. Most parents seem to be "afraid" to lay down some law to their kids. They want the schools to do it. Well, I got news for ya. The schools do well to teach kids today let alone hand down corporal punishment. Worst whippin i ever got was for the same thing..grades.
I only got five or six in my lifetime, but i deserved and remember every single one of them. It was either the belt, a switch (tree branch with the leaves off of it. stings like son of a bitch. if i got asked to pick mine off the tree, i knew i was really gonna get it. your switch was always too small) or the yardstick.
Shit, when my moms saw two F's on my report card, she broke that damn yardstick over my ass, son..
