Everybody Doesn’t Need Internet Access: Father Beats Daughters For Twerking

For the past couple of days I’ve been avoiding the almost viral video of a father beating his daughters after he found out that they had recorded themselves twerking and then uploaded the video onto YouTube. If you haven’t seen the video, I’m embedding it below; but beware, it’s graphic and a bit hard to stomach.

Does this remind anyone else of slavery? It’s akin to something we saw in Django Unchained. It’s brutal. The only difference is that this man is related to the girls he’s beating. It’s honestly disgraceful.

Now, I’m not going to pretend that I didn’t get spankings when I was a child. I’m not anti corporeal punishment. But there is such thing as taking said punishment too far. The girls were screaming and apologizing, pleading for their father to stop as he whipped them, angry overseer style. It’s too much. When I was growing up, my mother was the one who spanked my sister and I. It wasn’t until I got older that they did this because my parents didn’t want to send mixed messages. We tell girls and eventually women that you shouldn’t stay with a man who beats you; but if that man is your father, it’s okay. It’s counter intuitive. Furthermore, if you’ve really done your job as a parent, you shouldn’t still need to beat your children as preteens. There are more effective punishments. Something like your child posting their twerking videos should require a conversation about respectability and standards not a beating. Because when these girls and eventually women are out of your care, what is to keep them from wyling out when you’re not physically there to beat them? (How many girls raised in overly strict homes only to get to college and completely lost their minds?)

And not only was the force of the beating too much, the most disgusting thing about all of this is that it was uploaded on YouTube for the world to see. This father sounds like a hypocrite to me. You punish your children from trying to get a little shine on YouTube and then turn around and upload a video of your own. For what? To embarrass them? To highlight yourself as a concerned father who goes to great lengths for his children? I don’t get it. The advent of social media has shown us that everyone doesn’t know what to do with internet access. Your daughters are still being highlighted in a way that is much more embarrassing than a twerk video would have been. Maybe that was the goal. And if that was the plan, it just might backfire. I’m sure this type of beating violates some type of Child Protective Services law. If his daughters or someone who knows the family decides to report this, this father could be taken away from the daughters for whom he was so “concerned.”

What do you think about this video? Did the father take it too far? Should he have uploaded the video?

    Why is everything so black and white.. There’s a difference between abuse and discipline. A man just being in the household isn’t good enough, they should lead and teach by example. You don’t have to abuse your kids until they’re black and blue, to be deemed a good father.

  • 1Val

    This man is an effective parent with poor impulse control, anger management issues and a propensity for violence. A loving father does not have to beat his children. If an effective father rears his daughters with self worth they will concentrate on their futures and not become teenage parents. This father has provided money, love or guidance to those children. He is just a sorry pitiful excuse for a man as well as a father.

  • Angel89

    Lol..yeah that’s exactly what I said & meant thanks for making it so clear….& they were exactly like me shaking my as* for attention…great comment! I’ll follow your advice when you do the same :-}

  • http://www.facebook.com/Scminka Ola Rhodes

    I feel so sorry for you.

  • http://www.facebook.com/Scminka Ola Rhodes

    Thank you.

  • Akiko

    Would you like it if your spouse/significant other beat you for the world to see?

    • http://twitter.com/docbndgrl9113 Keesha (Киша)

      You’re an idiot. The man in the video is obviously trying to discipline his kids, not abuse them. It would be different if they were just sitting on the couch watching TV and he went and beat them because he had a bad day at work.

      • Akiko

        It doesn’t matter what he is ‘trying’ to do. It is clear that he is abusing them, but I am sure you cannot tell the difference. Nor am I going to waste time helping you to see the difference. Thank you.

  • Akiko

    What he did was abuse. If you did to another adult what he did to those girls would you not then be facing assault charges?

  • hugsandkisses

    He was charged and I’m glad. 1. They weren’t tewrking, this beating was for something else. 2. these CHILDREN have open wounds from the beat down this GROWN MAN gave them at full strength. Their mother called the cops on him after seeing the open wounds and bruises and I’m glad she did. You don’t hit your children in anger

  • PCMB0608

    My brother and I was really abused as children and had child services at our house almost every year until I moved out of the house (still then, my brother was abused) and a lot of the times, it was for no reason at all. Our mother had anger issues. She never wanted children, even aborted some, and still treated us like crap. I was molested and raped and told her and for years, she wouldn’t do a thing about it, but whoop us. As a black child growing up, I hated my life. I am 22 years old right now and I just finished college and when I look at how children are raised today, it is nothing compared to how I was raised or the people that are older than me. With that being said, these girls deserved their whooping. There are some whoppings we just deserve and some that maybe we didn’t deserve, but 12 an 14 years old? And to act like that let alone let the whole world see you acting like that is crazy! They didn’t just bring shame upon themselves, but to their families as well. The bottom line is, children will be children. Just because you whoop your child, that doesn’t mean that they will be angels. The same applies with whooping them. I believe society is screwed up in the head. You have to have discipline sometime. If we all didn’t discipline our kids, there will be a world full of smart-asses and rebellious people. We’ve all seen those bad kids that talked back to their parents. They need to know their place. They are not grown. If these girls were 18 and older and did that, all the parent can do is get upset, but for them to be young and doing that, it’s a problem. This is why we are seeing children as young as 8 years old having sex and orgies (yes, there’s been a case in my state where 1st grades were having orgies and their parents did nothing). Adults shouldn’t be afraid of their children. And to read that he has a double standard as far as him whooping his child vs. a man beating their significant other is pointless. This entire society is based off having double standards. A man can’t hit a woman because it’s abuse, but a woman can hit their man and it not be looked at as abuse as well? If that’s the case, the rape topic goes in with that. Women can rape men just like men can. AND TO BE HONEST, IF YOU DON’T WHOOP YOUR KIDS AND DISCIPLINE THEM, THE POLICE WILL AND WILL GET AWAY WITH IT. The kids these days deserve some type of punishment. It just saddens me because these girls are in middle school showing their asses, literally. There are a lot of jobs and colleges that base if you’re accepted to them by your social network/media. You can simply type up someone’s name in google and see how they carry themselves. I don’t think that it’s a problem for them to do that either. These girls will forever be on the internet and in many eyes known as “hoes”. They will regret doing this later on in life. I’m just mad they lied to the police and told them the reason why they got a whooping was because they were trying to “sneak out of the house”. I doubt anyone that says this is abuse looked at what they did. Black women especially need to do better with carrying ourselves as women. As a young lady. Not as a sex figure. We are more than that. Same applies to the men. We are proving to those that say we are nothing more than thugs and hoes right, but then have the audacity to turn around and get mad if someone say that “you’re just a hoe or n*gga”. Double standards. We should change that.

    • OracleAtDelphi

      So you think you’re going to change things for the better by condoning a father that beats his daughters “like they’re a hoe or n*gga”?

      You’re not the sharpest hoe in the shed, are ya…

    • Keisha Samoht

      After reading your POV on this i can only understand a portion of where you come from. I was not in the situation that you were in coming up. And just so i am clearly understanding, you do feel that should have gotten disciplined? correct? But did you think it was too much? I mean yes they did need to be whooped, but i felt it was too much.

  • http://twitter.com/bunnychi75 bunnychi75

    Well, I’m siding with what the dad did; those same men that might’ve seen his girls twerking will see his girls getting their butt beat! That’s the problem with most teen girls now, they think they look ‘cute’ shaking their booty in front of a camera or someone! All that does is attract the WRONG kind of attention, and the sad and frightening part is, you have girls as young as elementary school doing it, watching the older kids! Nah, nip that mess in the bud!

    • OracleAtDelphi

      And by siding with the dad, you’re saying getting whipped with an electrical cord is the RIGHT kind of attention? You’re a moron.

  • Akiko

    THIS IS ABUSE!

  • SheenaB

    There should be an update. He has been arrested and charged.

  • tiapett

    These girls won’t GET CAUGHT making another video, so that mean’s the beating worked right? People trip me out thinking that a beating is the answer to all your parenting needs. Whipping is a fear tactic that originated during slavery. The master/overseer used beatings to keep the slaves in line and make sure they did what they were told without any type of opinion. Slaves whipped their children so master wouldn’t. Why would you want to raise a child in the image of oppression? The one thing this father did accomplish is the breakdown of trust in his relationship with his daughters. They will continue to be fast, because beating doesn’t work. And if they ever get into some real trouble (pregnant, raped, domestic violence), why would they confide in their father? If you establish a relationship with your children that is based on fear and tyranny and whip cracking. A father is supposed to set the standard for how his daughters allow themselves to be treated by another man. He shouldn’t be surprised if they are not both in some type of abusive relationship when they get older. Also, if you as an audlt, can’t get respect from a child without hitting them then maybe you need to work on your communication skills.

  • Kay

    I don’t agree with the cord, a nice belt or switch would have done the trick. They deserved their asses being whipped for twerking on the internet. My parents would have done the same, I will do the same to mine. As for the screaming what child doesn’t scream im sorry with a whooping. The father was clearly upset about his daughter p***y popping online and punished them as he saw fit. The father is not wrong to me and putting them in the room with no phone internet etc. would not have done justice. There need to be more fathers like this and there would be less twerk videos. He was not beating them out of personal anger but punishing them out of a place where a father is disappointed in his child for doing something like this. Besides my father did way worse when he found out I was having sex and we have a great relationship so this is nothing.

    • OracleAtDelphi

      Yeah, apart from the fact that the beatings your father gave you made you grow up as a twisted, sadistic idiot who now brags you’ll do the same to your kids, you turned out just peachy, didn’t ya?

  • sammi_lu

    The father has since been indicted..obviously the mother was not feeling how he chose to discipline their daughters and upset that they were sent home with welts and open wounds resulting from this beating.

    • Keisha Samoht

      I woulda beat him the way he did my daughters, then called the police and showed them the video.

  • EDW

    Keep these issues coming Veronica, love reading your stories, enjoy your opinions

  • EDW

    Totally disagree, a father has to teach on a daily basis. a father needs to be around to instill values and morals to his children so that these things are deemed inappropriate, this degree of corporal punishment is inappropriate.

    • sammi_lu

      Yes indeed.

  • bigdawgman

    Y’all think this is the end? Nah. Think about it, if beatings really worked, your parents would only need to beat you one time. He just whipped them like Django and dipped out. He didn’t even explain anything and was calling them mfers and stuff. This dad didn’t do the parenting he should have been doing long ago. Regular kids don’t post ratchet twerk videos to fb. If he had been teaching them properly since they were babies they wouldn’t have this foolishness in them. And I”m willing to bet this dude does a lot of ratchet foolishness himself. Now he’s gonna get all mad and try to beat the girls. Too late, bruh. Better keep that cord, cause you really gonna be sick when you see them on the corner, or on xvideos.

    • Keisha Samoht

      I knew that wasn’t no dang belt, that’s even more reason to say this is child abuse. He could have left bruises on top of bruises…

      • Regan Victoria

        Sweetheart, belts leave marks on kids too, especially when you wet it, it is pure D hell for the unlucky getting that beating.

        • Keisha Samoht

          I know belts do too; that he was beating his daughters with was too thin to be a belt. Maybe i couldnt focus in on it because i was horrified with the video in general.

  • britchick91

    The only mistake the father made was allowing somebody to record it

    • OracleAtDelphi

      Just like the only mistake you made was your above post that shows just how stupid you truly are.

  • Damian

    Lol this is the furthest thing from child abuse (this is coming from a high school kid) if teachers, parents, etc. Could put kids in check like this everything would be great because there are A LOT of kids who need it…

    • OracleAtDelphi

      You’re obviously one who still hasn’t got enough of it.

    • Akiko

      If you don’t think this is abuse, do what this man did to another adult and see if you don’t get charged with assault.

      • http://www.facebook.com/Scminka Ola Rhodes

        Superb point. These people need to read books like For Your Own Good and see how this kind of abuse was rampant in pre Nazi Germany and during slavery… Again not one single person has been able to reply with a valid point as to why so many prostitutes and drug users were beaten and whipped as kids.

  • JRAY

    who ever recorded it probably posted it to make him look bad it might not have been him who posted it in the words of COMEDIAN TONY ROBERTS YOU MAKING A TWERK VIDEO AND YOU 13 YOU NEED YO AZZ BEAT

    • OracleAtDelphi

      YOU WHIPPIN’ YER 2 GIRLS LIKE DEY WUZ DOGS, AND POST IT ON DA NET YO NEED TO BE LOCKED UP BY DA MAN.

    • Akiko

      What makes you think someone else recorded it? It is very possible and likely that he set the camera up himself.

  • Mary D

    He should be reported to the Department of Family and Children Services. I hope that someone will do just that! He is a coward. Put a man in his face and he will take off running. This link should be forwarded to the department immediately. There are ways to identify him. He really upset me. He deserves whatever he get!

  • enoni pond

    good job .dad this world has enough video hoes, fake urban models , strippers, and girls who who think shaking and grinding can get you famous ,i bet they will think twice next time before posting,trash on the net

    • OracleAtDelphi

      Yeah, good job dad. Show the world that you think that whipping your daughters like they’re dogs, and posting it on the internet will make you look good.

    • lilmissmatched

      You’re right…they WILL think twice about POSTING it, but that won’t stop them from dancing like that altogether.

  • Clarissa explains it all

    Then I’m guessing your solution to their punishment would have been more effective than this?

    Before you judge the commendable actions of this father, browse “functions in Cali” on Youtube. ‘Functions’ is a euphemism for “parties” in the Bay area of California. There, teens girls as young as 13 are dancing in a manner that should only be acceptable in strip clubs. My mom always said “when you know better, you do better” if those girls knew better than they would have known that, that mess is NOT cute. This dance craze makes the rest of us teenage girls look bad on top the teen pregnancy rate being so high. I have had my fair share of whoopings and that was nothing. Belts are kind of useful for kids from ages 5-12, if you keep using the belt as your source of immediate punishment, your kids will get immune to it. Trust me, kids will get immune to belts, I did. All in all, the bottom line to punishing kids is the effectiveness of it in my opinion. Had my mother not beat me the way she did back then, I don’t know where’d I be.

    • Keisha Samoht

      okay i know i responded to this last night…. but i dont know why its not posted…. anyway, I do know that kids today are way too dang gown. i dont have to look that up to know it, but there was no need for that spanking to be so extreme. Yes spank your kids but that? No. You are making it seem as if i am a not a product of spankings, No i am most certainly AM. But not a product of a something like that. That equates to how Joe Jackson was portrayed in the Jackson 5 movie to me. So while you feel like i dont understand the power of the belt, trust me i do. I still stand by the whooping being extreme.

    • OracleAtDelphi

      For one thing, if your mother didn’t beat you the way she did back then, you’d be a lot LESS eff’d up than you obviously are now.

      • Clarissa Explains it all

        I’m actually graduating top of my class in June and going off to college in the fall. So “eff’d up” is something I am not.

    • Akiko

      It’s a shame that so many of you normalize abuse.

      • Clarissa Explains it all

        Allow me to redirect you back to the question I asked Keisha Samoht:
        Your punishment would have been more effective than this?

        • Akiko

          Why do you assume that the ‘punishment’ these girls received was effective?

          • Clarissa explains it all

            I’m guessing you haven’t seen the video, not only did those girls get beat by their father but it was recorded, and posted on the internet. I’m pretty sure this video went viral meaning the whole world knows that they were punished for twerking on Youtube. Twerking videos usually go viral. Girls usually twerk in those videos to gain instant fame. Fame was what they got, but not how they imagined it would be. So yeah, that was very effective.

            • Akiko

              How do you know what they imagined or what their motives were?

              What was effective about their father beating them with an extension cord?

              • Clarissa explains it all

                Seriously? No, like seriously?

                Who else will voluntarily shake their butt in front of a camera and put it on Youtube? It darn sure isn’t to find the cure for cancer or AIDS!!! When you know better, you do better, as parents/guardians it is your job to teach your children right from wrong by any means necessary. Like T.I said, “my only job as a father is to keep my sons out of jail and my daughters off that pole”

                Akiko, I think it’s time you leave this post and comment somewhere else, because your arguments are just.. not valid. Like seriously, you are clearly emotionally involved in this issue instead of being logical.

                And regarding your post about domestic violence, father/daughter relationships and boyfriend/girlfriend relationships should never be compared ever. Parenting your child should never be compared to being romantically involved with someone.0

                • Akiko

                  Lol! You have the nerve to say that someone isn’t being logical… After all, you think it is commendable that the father beat those two girls with an extension cord.

                  I NEVER compared parenting to being romantically involved with someone. I asked you if you would find it commendable (deserving praise) for a boyfriend to beat you with an object. Of course you could not answer the question, because otherwise you would look like a fool.

                  I couldn’t care less what T.I said. And the fact that you quoted him speaks a lot about you. After all, that is a man who has spent many nights in a jail cell. You don’t even realize how sexist that comment is.

                  HOW ABOUT YOU LEAVE THIS POST AND LEARN HOW TO ANSWER QUESTIONS AND NOT CREATE ARGUMENTS FOR YOURSELF TO RESPOND TO.

                  • http://twitter.com/docbndgrl9113 Keesha (Киша)

                    When you ask, ‘Would you accept abuse from your husband/boyfriend’, you basically are comparing parenting to being romantically involved with someone.

                • Angel89

                  Lol the last statement is exactly how I feel..where does the comparison of that of a parent child relationship come in with a sexual/romantic relationship?? I don’t get it she/he obviously has the wrong idea for both..but to each their own

    • Akiko

      Beating someone with an extension cord is not commendable. If your boyfriend beat you with an object would that be commendable to you? If your mother hadn’t beat you back then you would have turned out to not think abuse is okay.

  • WakeMeUpWhenSepEnds

    I can’t believe in 2013 there are people still cosigning this mess. Lol at all the old farts talking about this generation needs to be beat….”I used to get running chainsaws thrown at me this aint anything…I turned out okay o_O” Ummmmm…..yall crazies raised the crazies that are raising this generation which means people are unfortunately still beating their kids..The majority of teens doing this are searching for attention they aren’t getting from their parents. And I assume all the beatings the previous generations received did so much good /sarcasm. Proactive>Reactive

    • Fan

      Wow I can tell your a crackbabie.

      • WakeMeUpWhenSepEnds

        Nope.I just use common sense. But, I do know a few people who are addicted to crack that were beaten in their childhoods. Children who are physically disciplined are more likely to develop emotional and behavioral problems. I just posted comment about that on this thread, but its still in moderation.

        • Keisha Samoht

          they sure do.

      • OracleAtDelphi

        And now we can all tell you’re an a s s hole

  • http://twitter.com/moniqhar schievelle dotstry

    I couldn’t see the video its been removed

  • Blac585

    they got what they deserved an old school a** whoopin kids are getting outta hand tattoos all over there face and body they dont realize no one will hire you doing this hoe a** dance then wanting to post it for all to see get em pops

  • Angel89

    I watched the video a few weeks ago & the only thing he did wrong was allow someone to tape it & post it on the internet for all to see…with that being said they needed their asses beat & THEN maybe an explanation to why that video they were making was not cute & wrong & all of that other good stuff lol..I read a lot of comments of how he should’ve just talked to them instead…some children need more than talking and maybe he was tired of talking…I bet they won’t try that again..it’s sad to see that all some young girls & even women my age, I’m 23, feel they only have this to offer & all for the wrong attention..at least they have a man in their lives that actually gives a damn about them enough to even discipline them..it shows to me that he cares what kind of women they will be.

    • Angel89

      Another thing I see a lot of people claiming that this is child abuse…I feel for those who REALLY were abused as children for no reason at all..but when a child does something they have no business doing & you may be all talked out you are to give them a lesson in tough love..had they done nothing at all to deserve this I would agree that he took it too far..but they as children, as young ladies growing into women need to know that what they did was unacceptable..punishment is not giving to those who didn’t do anything in the first place..& for those who think and say otherwise obviously still have not learned their lesson

      • Angel89

        typo: *given

      • OracleAtDelphi

        If the girls were old enough to be twerking, then they are old enough to be disciplined WITHOUT physical abuse. All the beating did was far more damaging than any amount of twerking.

        • Angel89

          The first sentence is true…but how can you judge from a minute or so video how his parenting was before? & that he didn’t attempt to talk to them prior?..you can’t just as I can’t judge them & say they were bad girls for “twerking”..although it’s not my thing it’s not for me to judge their character

      • Akiko

        If your boyfriend/husband beat you with an extension cord, you wouldn’t consider it to be abuse?

        • http://twitter.com/docbndgrl9113 Keesha (Киша)

          Yes, because they aren’t trying to teach me a lesson, they are releasing their anger on me. A spanking or woopin’ from my parents was to teach me a lesson. I remember my dad sometimes wouldn’t want to spank me. But the spankings ended when I was about 12. After that, my parents would just get mad at me.

      Yeh their Father has set a great example of what they will look for in a husband.

  • Chelle

    No they took it too far getting likes and a little shine horsing around is one thing but shaking your a** for millions to view us another! Whoever wrote this article must’ve forgotten the cardinal rule if raising daughters KEEP YOUR BABY OFF THE POLE twerking videos are the first step to a downfall. What he did was discipline they were just dramatic now i have two daughters what I would have done is criminal! They should be less trashy and disrespectful and acknowledge they have a father whereas most don’t in this day in age so stop bashing the dad and be glad he is there and if he gets locked up at least we know he’s there for trying his best to raise his daughters into women not selling dope or commuting crimes!

    • Akiko

      What is the ‘cardinal rule’ for raising boys? Doesn’t seem like anyone is teaching them anything valuable.

      • carole smith

        Yeah, and how many of them HAVE a father to teach them? Grandma and mama can’t teach them how to be a real man.

        • Akiko

          Ultimately, people don’t need to be taught how to be a good man or woman. They need to be taught how to be good people.

        • 1Val

          Black people should retire the fallacy of single black mothers can’t rear boys to be men. Seriously, how many of your law abiding, gainfully employed, educated male relatives were raised by a single mother? So you know firsthand your statement is nothing but a lie perpetuate by black males to feed their egos.

    I’m glad this video is down. I did not watch it but getting beat as a child and young adult was never pleasant and it never taught me anything but how to resent those adults who thought it was ok; they would laugh and cheer the beating on or explain that it was for my own good. Not at all a happy time and the main reason I wanted to grow up. I don’t agree with these sad comments because too often the ‘heat of the moment’ is used as an excuse and it’s not a good one. There is no excuse to beat the h*ll out of a child. You getting beat when you were a child also doesn’t make it acceptable. My mother would beat me but rarely when she was super pissed and we always talked about why I was going to get it before and after. I still resented it because I rarely got to explain my understanding of what I did and why. It never mattered because the whipping was gonna happen regardless of my perception of the even. Conversation is a more sustainable method because you’re teaching corrective behavior in making better thought out choices rather than fear of repercussion.

    • http://twitter.com/MaxineShawEsq Maxine Shaw

      As we learned in “teacher school” (a snotty expression for pre-service training): discipline is something you do FOR a child, not TO a child. Additionally, discipline is something you do for a child, not for yourself. I find it hilarious when people talk about how you need whippings to control a child. I have 27 4th graders and I can’t lay a finger on them…you’re telling me that you can’t control one or two?

      As for the people wanting to bring back corporal punishment in schools, they are the stupidest people breathing. Trust me, the LAST thing you want to give to an overworked, underpaid teacher is something to hit your kid with!

      I hope someone takes a video a few years from now, after those girls have grown up a bit, found themselves a coupla hood rats, and they go back and whip HIS a s s.

    • Akiko

      What he showed them is that he is an abusive man.

  • Trisha_B

    Are we sure it was the father who uploaded it? It could have been another sibling who was happy their sisters was getting punished & wanted to put it on blast. B/c i really don’t think he would be that crazy to upload this knowing how the law basically doesn’t allow parents to discipline their kids anymore…But i say kudos to him. A father who don’t want his daughter twerking for the internet. I bet they won’t try it again

    • OracleAtDelphi

      That’s right, instead of twerking for the internet in the privacy and safety of their homes, they’ll now go out wh or ing on the streets, Or maybe first they’ll find themselves a nice pimp to beat them, just like they learned at home at the hands of their parent.

  • Youngin

    I think the father should plea temporary insanity on this one. Yeah the beating may have been too much, but he possibly could have been in the moment and not thinking how hard he was whipping the two. I am somewhere in those girls’ age group and I think that twerking thing is disgustingly ghetto and unclassy to post on the internet. I would’ve got that same whopping too if my father caught me doing that, but I know way better than those girls. With the posting on the internet, I think the father was trying to teach them some sort of lesson like “that twerking video you almost posted would have embarrassed me, so I’m going to post something on you tube that will embarrass you.”

    • OracleAtDelphi

      And which only goes to show just how twisted and warped HIS value system is. The only person that should have been embarrassed by that video is HIM. At the very least, he should be embarrassed for proving how stupid he is by posting a video of him abusing his daughters.

  • Natasha T

    We need more fathers like this, even though he went overboard, as a parent myself, I would go apesh*t too, but not as HAM as this guy did.

    • OracleAtDelphi

      If he went overboard, then obviously we do NOT need MORE fathers going overboard. The issue is his daughters twerking…showing they do not value themselves as human beings. Gues what….whipping them like dogs also shows HE does not value them as human beings. D-U-H !

      • http://www.facebook.com/Scminka Ola Rhodes

        So, well said.

    • Akiko

      You just admitted that you would go ‘apesh*t’ on a child. You have issues.

      • Natasha T

        You have issues too to think that my husband and I beat our kids! Apesh*t don’t mean kill our kids or beat them to a pulp, apesh*t as an expression. I’m done with you, have a nice day sir, ma’am, whatever you are! *rolls eyes*

        • Akiko

          What are you talking about?

          Where did I say or imply that I thought you and your husband beat your children?

          Where did I say that ‘apesh*t’ means to kill your children or beat them to a pulp?

          Please, point it out to me.

  • Harlow Montreese

    If we have more fathers like this man, teens today wouldn’t be the way they are right now. Kudos to him for checking his daughter for doing that ratchet dance, he deserves a medal!

    • http://www.facebook.com/romeojg30 Julian Romero

      I agree, just shouldn’t have posted the video. Leave your punishment within the home and not the Internet.

    • Akiko

      Yes, we need more fathers to whip their children with cords even though it is abuse.

      • Keisha Samoht

        (sarcasm) Yes, its not child abuse cause he’s teaching his daughters that they had no business doing that in the first place and that he’s doing a job that other parents need to do with their children because kids are too grown….

        how can people NOT see this as child abuse? belt or not it is still too far to deem it as discipline.

        • Akiko

          People who don’t see it as abuse are probably abusers themselves or were abused as children and never learned that certain behavior actually isn’t okay.

          • Natasha T

            Excuse me. My parents never abused me or my brothers, we got spankings and those spankings taught us a lesson in life to not do the stupid ish again. You must be at least a teen yourself saying that crap!

            • Akiko

              Yes, excuse you. You seem to have an issue with understanding what you have read. I made a general comment that can be proven with psychological research. You must be a naive girl to be saying that crap!

          • Keisha Samoht

            a cycle that continues on…

        • lilmissmatched

          I guess he expected the whipping sounds to translate that message to the children in plain English with every hit…..Now it all makes sense….(NOT)

        • Natasha T

          Thank you! People like Akiko are the reason why kids act like they way they act now, nobody can’t discipline them or tell them what to do. We need to raised our children, not let the government raise our kids. I they get out of line, they need a spanking. Even back in the day, parents brought belts, extension cords and tree branches to whoop their kids in school, especially in front of us and our teacher. Now most kids are disrespectful even towards the elderly parents are afraid of their kids, no you bring them into this world, you check them when they’re in the wrong! Last weekend here in the Chi, about hundred teens terrorized innocent shoppers and tourists on Michigan Ave. at night and 25 of them got arrested, where were their parents at? Example of why parents need to start disciplining their kids! Whoopings or punishments, check your kids!

          • Akiko

            You are truly dense. People like me are NOT the reason why OTHER PEOPLE’S CHILDREN act the way they do.

            Obviously ‘whoopings’ don’t work. I mean, does the incarceration rate of Black men not mean anything to you? As I said, you are dense and definitely have an issue with understanding what you have read. You don’t even understand Keisha’s comment in response to mine.

            • http://www.facebook.com/Scminka Ola Rhodes

              I agree with you Akiko, the comments on this page are really frightening. The ignorance exposes what slavery and subjugation has done to the black race. Not a single person who supports this violent and abusive ‘Dad’ has given a succinct answer to the valid points like yours and the few others who see abuse for what it is. If that is a Father then those girls are better off growing up without one.

              • Akiko

                They can’t do it. They can’t think that far or they don’t want to.

            • Natasha T

              Bytch, have several seats, we have the right to raise our kids the way we want to and this no spanking BS don’t work! We want our kids to do right, know the difference between right and wrong, we want them to do better.

            • LilScrappy_w/his_irrelevant_az

              that’s because they weren’t whooped

          • carole smith

            Most of these kids don’t even know what it is like to have a father in the house, so when they see one who IS involved and takes a great interest in raising his kids to be decent adults, using corporal punishment on them, they think it is abuse, instead of discipline. Spare the rod, spoil the child. Way too much of that, now.

            • Akiko

              “Spare the rod, spoil the child. Way too much of that, now.”

              That must be why there are so many black males in jail.

        • Natasha T

          @Akiko is stupid as hell, I bet he/she don’t have kids so @MorningRain:disqus wouldn’t understand.

      • LilScrappy_w/his_irrelevant_az

        shoot I was whopped with extension cords, broom sticks, my sized Barbie, had to go pick my own switch and if it was too thick I got beat with that one and then had to go back and get a skinny one (those skinny ones sting) and I learned my lesson, to a certain extent but it made me respect my elders not be afraid of them and I grew up fine. Problem is parents don’t spank their children anymore because they are kids themselves having kids

    • lilmissmatched

      Yeah, he can collect that medal in JAIL now…..

    • http://www.facebook.com/Scminka Ola Rhodes

      Total rubbish. Are you telling me that none of the women that turn to prostitution and drugs were not beaten and abused as a children? Are you for real?

    • 1Val

      It is because we have fathers like this man, teen today are the way they are right now. Effective parents don’t have children making twerking videos.

  • http://twitter.com/MsRedboneBrite Tee Elyse

    While it certainly looked and sounded bad, I’m sure they were putting on extra screams for the camera, because he had walked in and caught them in the act of making the video, which was why the camera was still running. I personally don’t think he went overboard, but then again, I remember getting worse beatings. Parents still have to parent their children, but I don’t think it should’ve been broadcasted on the net because it isn’t everyone’s business

    • honest

      they made it everyone business by twerking for the world to see i applaud him

      • OracleAtDelphi

        If there’s truly karma in this world, you’ll get the beating YOU deserve, while others applaud.

    • OracleAtDelphi

      So pathetic to see how many of you confuse “parenting” with “abuse”.

      • Akiko

        A lot of the people here seemed to be used to be abused that it is normal to them.

      • carole smith

        And confusing husbands with fathers.

  • mac

    “Something like your child posting their twerking videos should require a
    conversation about respectability and standards AS WELL AS a beating” <— fixed.

    " You punish your children from trying to get a little shine on YouTube
    and then turn around and upload a video of your own. For what? To
    embarrass them?"

    Absolutely. I bet they won't try any foolishness like that again. A little discipline would do this new generation some good. It's sickening how fast they're trying to grow up these days.

    Lol I'll probably catch flack for this but I don't care. If we're being honest, the beating wasn't even that bad. That second girl was just being dramatic. That was a typical, routine whooping when i was growing up. But I raised by old school Nigerians, not these coddlers of today.

    • honest

      preach he was pissed to find out his two daughters are part of the ratchetness and im glad he uploaded it for the world to see these little girls are tooo hot these days…

      • 1Val

        Little girls are tooo hot and out of control these days when parents fail to rear their children.

    • Breeze

      I’m all for discipline its the manner on which it’s dished out. Let’s be honest when you get beat like that does it really stop the behavior or does it make them be more sneaky about the things they want to do. Hitting doesn’t always work. As a child my mom beat my butt with whatever she had on hand. She thought I was this perfect little angel and around her I was, but boy did I have a life she knew nothing about. She still just finding stuff out that I did. All those whoopings did was make me cover my tracks way better. Discipline is suppose to be about teaching your child not a time display your anger.

    • Akiko

      Some Black people are so used to being abused that they can’t even tell that it is wrong anymore.

    • OracleAtDelphi

      So, since you were abused as a child by your parents, it is therefore OK for the abuse to continue? Your attitude serves as the best example of why such abuse is wrong…because it ends up giving you warped values as an adult. You’re the perfect case-in-point. Thanks for posting.

    • LilScrappy_w/his_irrelevant_az

      I don’t mind him “posting” the video because he has that right and im all for a little azz whooping every now and then but he was beating them and it was a bit over the top

    • 1Val

      I saw something entirely different watching that video. Primarily a father’s failure to parent his daughters prior to them making a video. I too am old school and received corporal punishment as a child nor did I spare proverbial rod with my son. However, I was never disciplined without a discussion prior to and following corporal punishment. This father beat his daughters not for their betterment but for his ego.

      If this father had been the type of father he ought to have been to his daughters then they would have never made a twerking video. Effective parents don’t wait until their children are teenagers to instill values, morals and standards of behaviors in them. I’m willing to wager this father has never provided his daughters dance lessons, highly doubt those young ladies are on the cheerleading squad and mostly like have never been enrolled in a gymnastics academy.

      I bet those girls aren’t active in any church activities if they are even regular church goers. The father doesn’t strike me as one who carpools or volunteers at his daughters schools. Even more problematic to me if the appearance of an involved father yet his young daughters felt compelled to make a twerking video for public attention and validation.

      The father has been and is derelict in his duties to parent his daughters. How can he in good conscience fault his daughters for acting out when he failed to rear them with self-esteem and life goals? Just a shame and a disgrace!!!!

      • Angel89

        The little girls actually made said twerking video in a church…so you can’t judge this man on a video of merely seconds..

  • Ms_Sunshine9898

    There are some ups and downs to beating these children like this. Though excessive, they’ll never forget it, and probably will think twice before showing out again . . .

    • OracleAtDelphi

      “they’ll never forget it”…The word you’re looking for is “traumatized”. The word that applies to what the video shows is “criminal”.

      • Ms_Sunshine9898

        it was excessive, criminal is saying he was beating those kids for the hell of it . .

    • Akiko

      There are only ‘downs’ to abusing a child like this.

      • Ms_Sunshine9898

        call it what it is, an a$$ whooping meant as a punishment that went too far and became excessive. . .

    • Joe

      What will stop them from showing out when they move out? This is ignorant, abuse, and criminal. You are so opinionated lol. THese girls are 15 and 14 I think and getting beat like this. I would never beat my kids like this.
