Anderson Cooper Michael and Toya Graham

A Baltimore mother-of-six is being praised by the White House for stopping her son from rioting — by beating him into submission.

Toya Graham told news outlets, including CBS and CNN, that she wasn’t aware that she was being videotaped when she yanked her son, Michael, off the streets on Monday. The video went viral all over the world.

White House press secretary Josh Earnest said, “The thing that resonated with me is — was her expression that she was concerned about her son facing the same fate as Freddie Gray.”

In an interview with CBS News, Graham said she saw the crowd of youths throwing rocks at police, then she made eye contact with her son in the crowd.

“I could see the objects being thrown at the police, and I was like … ‘Oh, my God, this is really happening right here with me,’” Graham. And lo and behold: I turn around and I look in this crowd, and my son is actually coming across the street with this hoodie on and a mask. At that point, I just lost it.”

She told CNN’s Anderson Cooper that her biggest fear was her son would become another Freddie Gray. She was referring to the 25-year-old Baltimore man who died of a severe spinal injury while in police custody.

Anderson Cooper Michael and Toya Graham

Cooper also interviewed 16-year-old Michael, who said his mother’s reaction was like “World War III.” He said he was initially embarrassed when his mother hit him, but he understood when she told him she did it because she cared about him.

Many viewers criticized the unemployed home health aide for the violence she inflicted upon her son. Studies show that boys who are raised by domineering mothers who assume the role of both parents confuses boys who have difficulty understanding the male role in society. Over 60% of male serial killers of women were raised by domineering single mothers.

Fox News host Greg Gutfeld noted that Graham was a single mother of six kids — 5 girls and Michael — by 6 different fathers.

Fox News host Bill O’Reilly also talked about Graham’s single mom status with Martin Luther King’s niece Alveda King, who praised young Michael for not striking his mother back.

In a twist of irony, one of Graham’s daughters submitted an application to the Baltimore Police Department in hopes of becoming a police officer.

Graham is unemployed and still looking for work so she can pay her rent.

    I can understand her frustration and “handling” the situation then and there. :yes:

    :thinks: 2 things surprise me though…
    1) She didn’t get taken out by the police as she whooped this boys ass in the middle of the street. You know they look for ANY reason.
    2) I haven’t read any reports about her being investigated for child abuse.

    I don’t think she did anything wrong, but you know how folks get about other people disciplining their own kids. :coffee:

    And they couldn’t find another area to take photos and interview other than boarded up back lot.

    I agree with you both. She should not be still making headlines.
    Especially not that there is a report where a prisoner in the van states that Freddie did it to himself by throwing himself against the van walls, repeatedly.
    Where has this witness been for over a week? The autopsy didn’t reveal that? and what was this prisoner promised for coming forward?

    Putting hands on your children at home or in public is wrong. Yes, I commend her too for getting her son out of the street. But she could have done it without the use of violence. Sure, he respects her, but he does not respect authority figures because he has no male role model at home.

    I applaud the mom. The more I think about it, the more I realize she’s being used by “the man”. One lady was like she beat the thug out off him :blink: don’t give these folks interviews.

  • *Kah* Namaste! Peace! Blessing! One Love!

    This is crazy to me, because, if she had knocked her son upside the head like that for failing school, for getting into a fight, for stealing, or any other minor infraction, the mother would have been arrested for child abuse. But, she’s telling her son to not riot, and to not go up against the police, so she’s railed a “hero.” I don’t get it.

    Mom did that!

    That’s my rant for the day. :peace:

  • bama_n_jersey

    I ain’t mad at her for what she did. Probably would have done the same. I do agree that she cannot let the media keep it going though. It can very easily backfire if it is talked about to much.

    Also, what did the number of kids and number of fathers have to do with anything? AND…I don’t really see where the White House Praised her.

  • bama_n_jersey

    Where has this witness been for over a week?
    *******
    I wondered the same thing when I read it this morning.

  • *Kah* Namaste! Peace! Blessing! One Love!

    I too believe this mother is being used by the white media. She shouldn’t have her son parading on TV, she shouldn’t be doing any interview; because, she did what a real parent would do. The end! Keep it moving! She needs to stop making these white people richer and making her son look like a clown.

  • https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=kPI_xA1SoRg Mother Of Dragons, Shopaholic, Geek

    Exactly Bama. The fact that the number of fathers is even a piece of information they asked and are circulating shows that this “attention” isn’t something they really feel is positive. Would they have asked a white woman if all her children had the same father?

    ***********
    I get so tired of this excuse. Do you know how many Men (used loosely) had male role models in the home and still dont respect authority figures? A LOT. Now I might have agreed a little if you said ‘not having a male figure can keep some boys from learning how to be a man’…but this :nono: Respecting authority has nothing to do with being a man or woman. It has to do with being a person.

    @MOD..on your question downstairs…yes I feel like they always asking for money. Specifically the PTA. Just sent money for a Teachers Appreciation Luncheon. Now tell me if this makes sense. They asked each family to donate $5-$10 (not a lot, but it will add up) for the luncheon and other “suprises”…but then right below that, it stated that they would be sending out a sign-up for families to supply luncheon dishes and sweets for the ‘sweet day’ they are giving.

    What does her being unemployed and having different children’s father have to do with anything. This story is no short of low blows about this woman. I am a mother of an 18 year old son and he has a father in the home as well. You better believe if I saw MY son on television doing some BSHISH I’m snatching him up WW style and his dad is also. Who cares what anyone has to say about it. The minute these black boys commit a crime, they ask about the parent’s involvement. This mother gets involved and gets criticized and HER unemployment and multiple fathers gets mentioned…straight BS! I would have smacked fire from my son’s mouth…end of story!

  • pointhimout

    she did right because it could have easily had been him dead out there. I don’t advocate violence and hitting, but in that heated situation, telling johnny to come sit next to mommy and chat aint gone work. She needed to get AND KEEP his attention to get him out of there. I don’t see the point in her going on tv to talk about it, but I believe she did the right thing.

    Sandra, him getting disciplined doesn’t make his mom domineering. If she were so domineering, something tells me he would have been more afraid of running away from her. They were in public, so in private, it could be worse. It was nothing more than a mom knocking sense into her kid’s head. Will he get teased for this til the end of time, absolutely.

  • buddapecan

    How does Fox News know she has 6 kids with 6 different men? IF that is true, yes she should have made better choices in who she procreated with but WHY does she have to take 100% of the blame? The father(s) are just as responsible. No one ever blames black men for abandoning their children but they will rip the mom to shreds for birthing the children. No one ever ask the question of why black men are so quick to abandon their children but they sure as hell will blame the mom for being a single parent. Why isn’t there pressure for black men to step and be fathers to their children? I want to see protests for THAT. I will never understand this double standard.

  • buddapecan

    Anyway I believe the white media is using her cause them jokers don’t even believe in spanking their own kids! SMH! I read a couple of articles that mentioned how back in the day the slave mom would beat her kids to keep them in line so the slave master wouldn’t have to and this is an example of that. Eeehh…I see what they are saying but I can’t say I wouldn’t have dragged my son from off the streets too.
