The image of the boy taking a picture of himself after being beaten to a pulp by his dad is all over the web. There aren’t many details on what happened to the boy, but the story involves his dad responding to him disrespecting his mother and allegedly calling her a b***h. The image has opened up a painful conversation all over black America about how far we should go in dealing with our kids, and if any form of disrespect justifies beating our kids until they bleed.
Everyone else tells black people that they should never spank their kids under any circumstances. But a deeper reflection on the matter can lead us to realize that spanking can be ok, as long as you don’t go overboard. When your son ends up looking this way, that might be a note for you to take a “woo-sah” before you deal with whatever your child has said or done to cause you to deliver this kind of wrath. KultureKritic.com and Dr. Boyce Watkins have more to say on the issue:
The details are admittedly sketchy on what happened here, but this boy decided to share his domestic dispute with cyberspace. We are not sure if he is seeking sympathy or just happened to snap the photo. The story goes something like this: The teenager gets out of control and begins to argue with his mother. He then refers to his mother as a b*tch, which leads to his father stepping in to defend his mother. We don’t know who won the fight, but this is what his face looks like after the fight is over. Did this dad go too far with his child?
