I was on the train this morning and I saw this [black] lady with a little kid who was no more than 2 years old. 2 is being generous in the age department. The kid wanted candy. She didn’t have any. He cried.
She was screaming at the kid, “Shut the fuck up. Shut the fuck up. I’m going to choke the fuck outta your ass.”
I immediately walked away.
This [white] dude came and was like. “I’m gonna choke the fuck outta your ass. He’s a child.”
[Black] dude chimed in and was like, “Yo, don’t say shit to her.”
She was like, “Yo son, you don’t want it. This is mine. This is mine.”
[White] dude was like, “He’s a child.”
He started singing a lullaby and the kid quieted. The lady was like “You so fucking spoiled.”
I just shook my head.
I know it is not my place to tell a mother how to raise her child. But, that was serious. I don’t like stepping in on situations like that because the person who tries to intervene is always the one getting jumped on. But…come on! And think it…when no ones around she probably does worse.
