Dear Mr. President, In 2008 you said these words: "I’m asking you to believe not in my ability to bring about real change in Washington. I’m asking you to believe in yours."—Barack Hussein Obama, 2008 On July 12, 2010 you said these words: “My leadership decisions will be based solely on scientific evidence.” Must Black and Brown American school children still be treated as “chattel” even under a Black American President? You told the American people to dream of change. You told the American people that you would rely on scientific evidence to make leadership decisions. As Chief Executive Law Enforcer, The Hitting Stops Here! and other children’s rights advocates beseech you to exercise your power to place an IMMEDIATE moratorium on US school beatings happening primarily to the children whose ancestors received more than 200 years of this brutal treatment in this country—ancestors unable to rest in their graves peaceful while such brutal beatings continue in their bloodline. We know your ancestors are from Africa so you may not understand how Black Americans whose ancestors were slaves feel. Simply imagine the brutality displayed on the links that follow being targeted at children you love—perhaps that may help soften your heart toward the American children who “pledge their allegiance” to you every morning from American classrooms, though “allegiance” to them is utterly neglected. US “School corporal punishment” photos of injured American school children: http://www.thehittingstopshere.com/media_photos_warning.php US “School corporal punishment” videos of school beatings caught on video (numerous US schools are now forbidding “powered-on” cell phones for this very reason): http://www.thehittingstopshere.com/cpvideos.php Mr. President, American school children are ready for a change that does not lead to first aid, emergency care or life-long mental illness.
