How do we prevent child abuse? First, we have to stop racism. That message has lately invaded the child-welfare system. The triumph of today’s fashionable ideological nonsense in this particular field carries exceptionally high costs — and abused kids will pay them.
Witness a recent educational offering from the American Professional Society on the Abuse of Children, whose members can now earn a certificate in “Systemic Racism in Child Welfare.”
Classes are offered as part of “APSAC’s commitment to work toward ending racism and implicit bias in the field of child maltreatment.” A class on “Hip Hop as Prevention and Intervention for Youth” includes readings such as “Hip-Hop-Based Intervention as Pedagogy/Therapy” and “Rap-Music Attitude and Perception Scale: A Validation Study.”
Neither the society nor the instructor replied to my queries asking how exactly hip-hop will prevent child abuse.
Academics and leaders in child welfare are single-mindedly focused on racial disparities in the system. They note that black kids are more likely to be removed from their homes than white ones. Never mind that black children are more than twice as likely to be the victims of maltreatment as white children.
These scholars and activists argue that we have to make the numbers come out even. But child abuse is highly correlated with family structure: Children living with a nonrelative male are 10 times more likely to be abused than those living with two married parents. And family structure varies significantly by race. So the disparities are hardly surprising.

I can’t help but wonder if it’s white “academics and leaders” who are sacrificing black children on the altar of their wokeness.
How do we prevent child abuse?
First, we have to stop racism.
But children are most always abused by parents of the same race.
The first step to stopping racism is categorize everyone by race, and make sure everyone acknowledges their race, and the race of everyone else. We must recognize the differences between races.
But all members of a race are not alike.
Racist! Child abuser!
First we have to slap people who spout this BS.
It’s shameful and criminal what the left has in store for children of all colors.
APSAC = ASPCA?
“...a rat is a pig is a dog is a boy.”
Liberalism is a mental disorder that prevents people from making rational decisions.
As the article said, black mothers are more likely to live with a male who aren’t the children’s fathers and those men are more likely to abuse her children. But don’t let facts play into your judgment.
"I know it's rough, but we have to make the numbers come out even. So I want to form a task force that slaps around white kids, then takes them away from their parents."
"If we don't, we're not woke!"
Did I say otherwise?
“Your” as in the woke CPS.
Bookmark under “you can’t make this shit up”.
Good luck White Kids. Adults who went through the trials of
having no parents are still charged with White Privilege.
I’d imagine there’s a child-size version of this floating
around in every woke government worker’s head.
Poor kids. If the workers have their way, the little boys
will turn out like a nervous puppy wagging their tail for
approval, wearing a dress, and taking gender related
Meanwhile, all the little “minority kids” will have a field
day abusing them.
black kids are more likely to be removed from their homes than white ones, so........lets leave them there because of racism? Im dizzy with this stupid talk of woke
Validation through cRap “music”, really? In which “music” women are routinely called such respectful terms as “bitch” and “ho”?
I have to admit their solution to this problem was 180 degrees from what I expected. I assumed they would focus on taking more white children from their families. But instead they elected to leave abused black children with their abusers.
BTW, the examples they cited are from New Orleans, New York and New Jersey. What’s up with these New places?
