The following video was sent to Worldstar Hip Hop by a father who seems to be at his wits end when it comes to disciplining his young son. Citing the disparity between Black men in college and those in prison, he felt these were appropriate measures to take in order to curb the boy’s bad behavior. The father shaves his son bald (“removal of swag”), whips him with a belt and then forces him to do a grueling workout…before sharing the video with the world.

Is this a good way of scaring his little one ‘straight’, or does he go too far?

  • My take on this from my post on FB:

    I too agree that the cursing and posting the vid online was excessive, but in reading that little exerpt under the headline the author is judging father by making an assumption b/c they do not agree with his disciplinary tactic. When and where was it said that the little boy lives with his grandmother? Perhaps she just gets him off to school in the morning b/c the parents are working. No one knows WHY the boy is a disciplinary problem, but it is made evident in the vid that the father has tried other means of discipline. He clearly said that they’d had a talk just a day, ot two, before. He also mentioned that the boy’s grandmother had spoken to him. Obviously talking didn’t work. Those folks commenting clearly wasn’t paying attention to the vid.
    If this boy was left to his own devices, and ignored by his caretakers, then we’d be bashing them for not doin anything, and the boy being a deviant. We don’t know the whole story, yet people are quick to crucify this man for disciplining his son, that we know NOTHING about, as he sees fit. But people complain about black boys being disrespectful, not wanting to be educated, walking around with their pants below their ass, etc.
    C’mon now.

    Maybe the young boy in this video will be lucky enough to not end up like Michael Taylor. Taylor’s uncle beat his ass and uploaded the video to YouTube and the boy still ended up dead: http://www.hiphopstan.com/wannabe-gang-member-nephew-beat-uncle-murdered/

    Like Dr. Marc Lamont Hill said regarding this story, Black people are on some “slave shit” when it comes to disciplining their kids. Michael Taylor was emasculated for the world to see. Where else would an emasculated man or boy search for the manhood except the streets?

    Anyone with a child so damned bad is an utter failure. Fucked-up kids have fucked-up parents.
