At first I thought that video of the angry Baltimore mother smacking her teenage son was kind of comical. I was a little embarrassed for the mother, who came off like a stereotype over-the-top ghetto mom, screaming about I’ll hit you upside the head!
Now that I see she’s being hailed as a hero, I’m disgusted.
If you see a white mother slugging her kid, you know it’s child abuse. Case closed.
But because it’s Baltimore and the kid is wearing a hoodie, she’s a fucking superstar!
I’m glad that she loves her son and wants the best for him. I know she must feel desperate. But smacking him and swearing is not okay for one ethnicity and wrong for everyone else. It’s just wrong. It’s violence. What does she do to discipline her other five kids when the cameras aren’t rolling?
Violence teaches violence. To commend this mother is racist.
