    Baltimore mom who smacked son at riot: I don't play

    This deserves its own thread. Bravo Mom!


    (CNN)You know the Baltimore mom who went to the riot, found her son and lit into him with her right hand? Well, Toya Graham said Tuesday she did it because she didn't want her son to become another Freddie Gray.

    She also told CBS News that she's a single mother of six who doesn't play when it comes to her children.
    In video captured Monday by CNN affiliate WMAR, Graham is seen pulling her masked son away from a protest crowd, smacking him in the head repeatedly, and screaming at him.
    Graham told CBS News that her son said he wanted to run when he saw her coming.
    "I'm a no-tolerant mother. Everybody who knows me, knows I don't play that," Graham told the network. "He knew. He knew he was in trouble."

    Why are there so many single mothers in these communities? What can be done to keep fathers committed to the families they have helped to create? This is one of the big issues that can't be ignored.

    Sure it can, you just call anyone who brings it up racist. That has worked for over half a century

    Congrats to her! Nice to see someone willing to slap some sense into their children when they choose to break the law.

    Basically a complete overhaul of black culture itself from the ground up at this point. It's not just an issue of men being uncommitted. Women don't even really expect them to be anymore.

    There's no real incentive to prevent pregnancies out of wedlock either, as many low income minority women basically regard children (and the Welfare payments that follow) as being their meal ticket.

    Hard to argue with a single point you raised Gathomas.

    Why do assume that the death of (or separation/divorce from) the children's father did not follow the birth of the children? While my girlfriend was (her children are all grown and on their own now) a single mom, her three children (three daughters from the same father) were not born out of wedlock. It is not exactly easy (or even desirable) to re-marry when you have children from a prior marriage.

    That of course would require many young women to have abortions. Of course we can't have that.
