In this video, we discuss the mother who beat her son on live national television. The destraught mother disciplined her son for participating in what some say was either looting or some other form of protest against police brutality in the city of Baltimore.
Yvette Carnell and I ask: What do we make of this mother’s efforts to discipline her child and whether her actions warrant the praise she’s been receiving from the media. She’s been called parent of the year by some, especially whites with a fear of young black men. But there’s more to this than meets the eye, and that’s what we talk about here.
