Samoan families learn American culture

Posted by jonjayray on Sunday, 05 March 2006 08:41.

“The Malepeai family moved from Samoa to San Francisco’s Hunters Point neighborhood in search of the American dream. One day in November, they faced their worst nightmare. A teacher at Malcolm X Academy spotted marks on Kennedy Malepeai, 6, and reported what she saw to the school’s principal, who by law had to inform Child Protective Services. A social worker quickly arrived at Malcolm X. A tense, teary meeting between the principal, the social worker, and the boys’ mother ensued. Sineva Malepeai, 35, told them she had hit her son with a belt because he had kicked his cousin—a child-rearing strategy she believed in and learned growing up in Samoa. The social worker threatened to take Kennedy and his three siblings away from their parents and place them in foster care.”

This could have been avoided if the Samoans had remained in Samoa.
