    To funny. Love it. He looked like he wanted to act out, but he knew Mama didn't play that.

    Mama didn't want her son getting caught up in the riot and becoming another Freddie Gray.

    I believe some type of action is needed by mothers of Black boys and men. A petition sounds to tame.
    Something to cause the impact, and get attention like " Mothers Against Drunk Drivers".
    Black mothers need to get involved in "Black Lives Matter". "My Child's Life Matter". "My Sons Life Matters".
    Posters with a lion and her cubs with the captions.
    I'm thinking about starting something.

    "Mothers Against Police Shootings"
    "Mothers Demanding Police Accountability"
    Etc. etc. etc.

    As a mother and grandmother, I'm taking these shootings real personal. These police are treating Black mother's children less than rabid animals. Shooting them down like no one will shed a tear, miss them, have a funeral.
    The police are killing our kids, our brothers, sisters, cousins, like they don't have a mother.
