ok, i am not rasist, or at least not by skin color. i will call whoever on how they act and tonight my son is acting like "white trash" !!

I hear our pit wimper, so I walk around the corner to see my son kicking him! I asked what the hell he was doing as i grabed him by the ear, yes the ear and made him turn to look at me. i called dad to the room and told dad what i saw. When asked why he was kicking Hank he said because he was following me. Hank was trying to let him know he had to go potty and the doggie door was locked. when asked were he got the idea it was ever ok kick an animal he's reply was " the mexicans at school do it" WTF Wesday i think i am going down to the school to find out what the hell, i know there school is primarly hispanic but that is no excuse on him learning its ok to hurt an animals. I know that culture diffrences see things diffrently cows are worrshiped in some countrys, food in others. its life.

i am at a loss on how to explane that in diffrent cultures they are not the kindest to animals, that they historicly fight chickens for enertainment, trip horses, and so forth... other places worship the same animals

my son is in his room untill further notice.

today sunday, he is not alowed to speak. he has to get us to understand his needs without using ANY Sound. so he can fully understand how hard it isfor animals to tell us what they need. he has to ask to eat/drink/bathroom any and everythng. he is finding it vary fustrating, because yes we are struggling to understand what it is he wants. we remind him everytime we struggle to understand, how an animal must feel and how fustrated we are because we dont get what he wants but were still trying and hay once he finds a way to make us understand how much eassyer it is to repeat it when he needs it agin? animals are amazing at finding ways to talk to us if we lisen. 

the area were at some hispanics just got busted fighting roosters, they breed horses for entertainment (ok, as long as they own the mare and not breed mine! yes i had to file a police report :( others were charged with beastyality because inserting glass beer bottles into horses at the stables.. Most hispanics i ever rode/worked with Do not pamper there horses but they took care of the basic needs and treated the horse like i tool. the lady accrost the street dumps a bag of cat food out everyday to feed the stray cats- annoying because # of cats around because of it she dosnt speak english but got her point accrosed on how much she diliked the idea of the rescue group i called in to do a live trap spay/nutter program. 

when we go back up to twin i am taking my son to a rescue that keeps x fighting animals so he can see how it distoys the animals. and how hard the rescue has t work to keep the animals safe from eachother and ask him how he thinks the animals feel, and weather or not there lony because they cant//dont know how to be with other animals.

sorry i am a little pissed because just two years ago we had to "lose" our best dog because he was stolen and then used as a "bait" dog. he came home torn to shreds and is neck tore open. he was never the same, he got vary agressive to strangers and refused to go anywere close to another dog. We gave him to rescue because we couldnt risk him attacking. we know he was taken because the door to the kennal was locked, and he wasnt the only dog that went missing. Some made it home others were found ten miles out of town dead.

Wrong is wrong no matter the culture.  Not all mexicans or hispanics are mean to the animals so your son needs to learn not to follow the wrong actions of others.   It does not make it ok just because so many make that wrong choice.

My Mexican kids would never hurt an animal let alone a family pet. Just saying. It is not a culture thing, it's kids misbehaving. I would suggest not encouraging stereotypical behavior and leave culture out of it. Your son sees kids acting like brats at school because those kids are brats not because they're Mexican.

I agree with what you said. We are not Mexican, but I grew up in Phoenix. I never saw any of my Mexican friends and neighbors hurt a dog or any other animal, and I never heard any of them talking about hurting animals when I was in school with Mexicans. It is not a cultural thing.

Oh wow.  Is this thie first time he's done it?  I woudl speak to him about cruelty to anyone and why hitting is not acceptible to anything living thing or really.....anything.

But, I would speak to your teacher about what you heard too!  I hope that there aren't other animals in your neighborhood being hurt in this manner.  If there is a child (or children) that is doing things like this, this needs to be caught.  Right now, those children can hurt animals like its nothing but when that gets boring they may escalate to hurting people!!!!!!

Good luck!

I agree my kids are half Mexican they would nerver hurt an animal and neither would dh family. Now I have also seen some blacks do the same. I say it is just bad people who where never tought the right way to treat animals or just mean.

I think the waypoint is that ANY race can do it. To specifically point on or two race an deny that another doesn't do it when that is accurate is racist.

Sounds like he's kicking the dog because of your behavior or what you're modeling at home ...but I guess blaming the Mexicans is just easier

I wasn't trying to point out that only blacks do it ant that only mexians don't. I was pointing out that bad people do. I know that whites do it to heck where I live Hmongs will steel your dog and eat them. (yes, they were cought after they stoled my grandpa's dog.) Not all of one race dose something but a majority does. Not all whites are Hicks or white trash but yet we all get called it. Not all American Indians own a casino I know I don't or live off money set aside for them on their reservations.
I lived In a neighborhood where my friend and I where the only whites. I know of at least 5 black families who trained their dogs to fight even tried to get one to attack my dogs. I was only speaking from experience. All races have people who do messed up things.
