Liberals blaming white supremacy for Baltimore

Toya Graham reprimands her son for taking part in the riots

When the video went viral of Baltimore mother Toya Graham hitting her knuckleheaded son about the head for participating in the Baltimore riots, most Americans praised her for her motherly love and instincts. Ms. Graham stated in an interview in so many words that she loved her son and did not want him to end up like Freddie Gray (the young man at the center of all the rioting), in the back of a police van.

One would think that any sensible, rational person would conclude from the video that this mother loved her son and wanted to remove him from danger (even if it meant beating him upside the head). However, Stacey Patton, a writer at The Washington Post, has another perspective on the video and the mother’s actions. In her article, she concludes that Ms. Graham’s actions did not stem from love and the desire to protect her son, but originated from white supremacy.

The kind of violent discipline Graham unleashed on her son did not originate with her, or with my adoptive mother who publicly beat me when I was a child, or with the legions of black parents who equate pain with protection and love. The beatings originated with white supremacy, a history of cultural and physical violence that devalues black life at every turn. From slavery through Jim Crow, from the school-to-prison pipeline, the innocence and protection of black children has always been a dream deferred.

      They’re worse because they know they have to try even harder at being white supremacists.

    I’m a white supremacist for cuffing my kids when they almost strayed into traffic.

    • I had a kid dash out into the road not too many feet in front of me a couple of days ago. His mom didn’t seem too upset.

      That is some scary sh*t.

        I’ve never asked them.
        And I wouldn’t care if they didn’t think that was a good memory.
        But, they’re still walking around.
        It’s the only time I’ve hit my kids.

          I was taught to the tune of the hickory stick frequently and it never harmed me… and I knew I earned it each time I got it.

            Great when they are small.
            But, now they are teenagers.
            I got in a huge fight with my daughter one day,
            You have three years left here.
            And then you’re fucking gone.

    • WalterBannon

      cuff’em one more time for good measure, and if they complain tell them they can make the rules when they grow up and pay the rent…

      • dance…dancetotheradio

        Honestly, it was a reaction like there’s fucking lions over there.
        Smarten the fuck up.

      I wasn’t a racist until blacks started showing people the content of their character.

    Oh everything is YT’s fault. We feel so guilty….where do we send the cheques?

    All the neocons are hailing her as supermom.
    Yeah, six chirruns by six different babydaddies and on the dole. Exhibit A: The soft racism of low expectations.

    • BillyHW

      On the dole? I think you mean “between jobs”.

  • Drunk_by_Noon

    We need a “safe space”.

    Being old enough to remember when people were held accountable for their actions and behaviour and could not claim they were victims of whatever, I sometimes wonder if I have astral travelled to some other galaxy with what occurs nowadays.
