peace I heard this the other day as a black woman was scolding her son on line in front of me and it brought back memories, as i heard the same thing a couple of times from my mother when i was younger. Problem was that at that time i had only seen my father maybe once or twice (i was about 9), so my response was "well at least now i know something about him". Of course i was being a wise @-s, but the only time i ever heard the guy mentioned is when i was apparently "acting up", so i was left confused. Do you think this statement helps, hurts, or just confuses a male child? Especially, if the child has never met his father.... I've NEVER heard a father tell his daughter that she is acting just like her no good mother.
