The Dougie dance does seem to bring out the lightheartedness in people and is popular with all ages and color. The dance might turn out to be the next Electric slide dance craze. However, it is not the dance that is disturbing, it's that "B" word in the lyrics. Come on now, young black men, you've got to stop referring to females as the "B" word. No female's mother on this earth named their daughter that.
Maybe, Pui Tak elementary school and an Darren Newton should have been learning how to do the Dougie.
The father thinks the underlying cause is racism. Granny is thinking--> glad the child wasn't one of those terrible 2s because no telling what would have transpired had that been the case. Patience is a virtue when dealing with small children. Some people do not need to work in positions that involve children.
When Irving later spoke to Gin about the incident, she warned him that the lack of discipline his son exhibited "is how it ends up with kids getting guns." ~~Huffingtonpost~~
There are laws that protect children against their parents. A parent could wind up facing child abuse charges and prison for disciplining their child using Pui Tak's method of punishment. They would be in court defending themselves against child abuse charges and Child Protective Services would be paying them a visit. So, is it okay for a school to abuse them?
Children have a soft-spot with me. I love having them around because it is never a dull moment with them. Like Ark Linkletter used to say, "Kids can say the darnest things." Children are such a joy to have around and you can learn from them too, if you pay close attention, and have a good listening ear. That is don't listen at them, but to them.
I always tell people that when you are a parent you are at the apprenticeship level, but when you become a grandparent you are at the journeyman level. Believe it or not when you become a parent you are in training and learning how to be one because there is more to being a parent than feeding, clothing, and keeping a roof over a child's head.

Questions From A Black Woman's Journey
All of my life I observed people and often wondered why hatred between the human beings exists. As a black woman I have experienced it proliferated towards my people and me in myriad extreme and often subtle forms in which one could ever imagine toward a group of people.
One day, while meditating I asked the question why do people hate so much not knowing that this question would take me on a journey that would lead to an answer which has been one of the greatest deceptions in the history of mankind.
My journey has led me to the place that I am now, which is fighting against injustice, inequality, and enslavement of the minds of my people by the pharaohs of today.
Lord knows I am not perfect, nor do I profess to be. Neither are my people and no human being on earth is as a matter-of-fact. There are human flaws in every single race.
So, then my question is what gives one race the idea that they should have control over all others?
