SORT BY Relevancy
Toya Graham, the mother caught on video smacking around her 16-year-old son during the Baltimore uprising was hailed by many as "Mother of the Year." Activist Michaela Angela Davis writes, "It's a sad day when a traumatized, terrorized, desperate mother beating and cursing her child becomes 'mom of the year.'
Is Toya Graham, this mother of six, a hero...or is she an abuser? Was this an act of love...or abuse? Was this tough love, or something else? Do black single mothers have a license to beat and brutalize their sons to prevent them from becoming a statistic?
What about the mothers who yank, slap, punch their little black boys, do they deserve praise for "keeping their boys in line"?
Jackie Credle, a mother of two, says she was once the angry mother raising a son. She now regrets beating her son. Jackie shares her story, raw, uncut, honest real talk on She Struts Radio, Thursday, May 28, 2015 at 6:30pm ET as we continue our month-long conversation about mothering.

Most of us have seen the scenario more times than we can count: A woman in the grocery store with two kids in the basket, with no wedding band and no man in sight She might even be pregnant at the time, leading you to wonder how she is going to provide for those kids by herself.
In the black community, the single parent issue has taken our community by storm. Over 70% of all African American children come from single parent households, and many children suffer as a result. Is this a problem? If it is, what can be done to resolve it?
We asked members of the Your Black World blogging team to chime in, their reactions are below. You can give your take on the issue in the comments section as well:
My observation has been that our generation does not seem to value commitment the way that prior generations did. We seem to think in terms of our individual well-being rather than keeping the family unit together. I believe that if we restored a sense of value to family and the well-being of our children, we would start to see less children grow up in single parent homes.
Relationships have ceased to be relationships. They are mere exchanges. Men and women are now in it for what they can get out of it. For some women, that’s become as simple as extra money needed for stability. For some men, that’s as simple as having one’s sexual needs satisfied. That’s good Wild Kingdom stuff, but it in no way leads to a lasting and loving relationship. There is no tie that binds, just “What can you do for me?” and “What have you done for me, lately?”So, of course, both parties eventually go their own way. “On to the next one” inevitable leaves single mothers to go it alone.
WE WILL ANALYSE THE WICKED WRECKLESS BEHAVIOR OF TODAY'S AMERICAN WOMEN. NOW MANY OF YOU LADIES WILL SAY, WHAT ABOUT THE MEN?????? I ALSO HAVE A RECORDED SHOW ENTITLED "THE WEAKEST MEN ON THE PLANET" TO GIVE YOU MY TAKE. LET'S FOCUS ON THE 21ST CENTURY AMERICAN BLACK WOMAN WHO CONTINUES TO PUT THEM AND THEIR CHILDREN IN HARMS WAY OVER FOOLISH TRINKETS (CLUBS, PENIS, DRUGS, ETC.) HAS AMERICAN BLACK WOMEN ABUSED THE GOFUNDME SYSTEM FOR PERSONAL GAIN? EVEN IT'S AT THE PRICE OF THEIR CHILDREN AS YOU SEE WITH TYSHAWN LEE'S DEATH IN CHICAGO. WILL GOFUNDME START REJECTING PEOPLE WHO ABUSE THE SYSTEM?
