I never said they can't if they pass the sajeon gup stage. But it will be so unlikely that only the real prodigies would actually earn the black belt.
well it isnt unlikely as lot of kids earn a blackbelt, why do you want to stop them having one inless they jump throup hoops that you set

AAHHHHH!!!!
You don't get it do you. A lot of them haven't deserved the black belt as their parents just spent 500$ to get one for them. THAT'S WHY!!!!

I also agree with you, but talents like that are too rare, and that is why I look down on 8 yr old black belts.
Why look down on them? They earned that rank in most cases. If it were a different color, it wouldn't matter much to you, so what's sacred about the color black?

"A lot of them" - how many? The classes I've watched at places that award youth BB ranks to kids had the kids doing things like drills and sparring of some sort. The kids with the BB ranks typically were better at those things than the other kids. Seems like the kids are involved in the process.

It's not that I'm trying to prevent kids from getting the black, belt, it's just making it so the parents don't get to bribe the teachers into getting them high ranked belts to flex.

Yes, but that is only within their age... Of course a red belt 10 yr old is better at kicking than a yellow belt 10 yr old.
