So I realize that I’m SUPER late with this but guess what? I. Don’t Care. I’ve been under a deadline rock for the past week and a half.
This video of a kid who looks to be about 14 years old getting his behind WHOOPED by his Uncle for posting fake gangster nonsense, threats and inappropriate thug bullshit on his Facebook page gave me LIFE this morning.
And when I say, LIFE? I mean, I was literally shaking and crying from laughter for five minutes straight. This might be the only reason I make it through the next 4 days.
Lemme tell you, not because I think watching someone get humiliated is funny. No. Easy. I told ya’ll I’m trying to be a better person in 2011.
On the contrary, all I could think as I watched the kid scurry in a circle trying to avoid each smack without actually running away from his Uncle (cause the two worst thing you could do in that situation were run or grab the belt) was, O.M.G, I KNOW that belt!!! I was RAISED with that belt!! It landed on my legs, thighs and back more times than I care to remember!! And I for damn sure been in the same cowered position, apologizing for acting like I didn’t have any good goddamn sense. Believe that.
And why? Because my parents taught me better than that. And we don’t come from that shit!!
I thank GOD EVERY day there was no cameras around when I was growing up!!
*makes the sign of the cross, presses play and falls out again*
Shout out to all the people who were raised by someone that loved them enough to whip-not BEAT- them when they were getting bigger than their britches.
Aw man—as much as I understand where you're coming from on this, I just can't get behind this kind of disciplining. I felt sorry for this kid. And his uncle. And that the ENTIRE innernets is watching him be humiliated and abused. Yeah—maybe it's too late for time-outs and talking to's, but hell, how we get all the way up to that point to begin with? What kind of childrearing was
I'm not hardly mad. A couple of months ago, when my girl found out her son was on YouTube acting a clown, throwing up gang signs, etc. she laid into his behind quick-fast. Best believe Josh won't be internet-thugging or keyboard-pimping again no time soon.
