Chicago Tribune – Shattering the image of the kind and loving grandmother, a Chicago woman has been charged with burning, biting and beating the very grandchildren she was expected to protect. Police say the 6-year-old grandson and 5-year-old granddaughter of Goldine Williams, 47, were beaten with items like extension cords and accessories from a Halloween costume, burned with hair irons, scratched, bitten and even forced to eat cat food, the Chicago Tribune reports. According to ABC Chicago, the abuse took place in October and at a different home than the South Shore apartment where Williams was living at the time of her arrest. The Department of Children and Family Services said the kids had been taken from their biological mom in 2008 after “sustained claims of abuse and neglect,” reports Fox Chicago. DCFS put the two children in Williams’ care and worked with her until she was given guardianship in 2011, according to DCFS spokesman Jimmie Whitelow. The two youngsters are with different relatives now, according to CBS Chicago. Meanwhile, Williams will sit behind bars, held in lieu of $200,000 bond on charges of aggravated battery to a child.
When I first read the title I thought of my own grandmother. An innocent old lady who just loves me to death. I couldn’t possibly believe that a grandmother could assault her grandchild to this degree. But then I read that it was in Chicago and the grandmother was black. Then I read she used extension cords. Black grandmas and their switches. Its a classic, yet racist, stereotype. I’ve seen all I needed from Tyler Perry’s Madea, and this article, to believe that black grandmas are not to be fucked with. Grandmas are like a species of their own. Overwhelming worldly knowledgable. They don’t have to work. There’s nothing they can’t cook. They get to back talk your parents. And they let you do all the shit at their house that you’re not allowed to do at yours. They literally live the perfect life. For about 15 years until they get Alzheimer’s, dementia, or cancer. You always have to trade the good with the bad.
Ps, I blame this whole scenario on DCFS. They handed the children over to this lady after the children were already abused and neglected by their mother. Now I’m not sure if this was her mother that was handed control but I’m guessing it was since there’s no mention of a father, so in that case, how dumb is it to hand the abused and neglected children over to the woman who raised the mother who abused and neglected the children. She probably learned all she knew from that lady. These kids are just getting shopped around from shitty home to shitty home. No wonder the inner city youth has so many problems. Blame DCFS.
PPS, To make them eat cat food is just utterly disgusting. Cats are fucking gross. The food they eat is fucking gross. It smells like shit. It looks like shit. I mean, there’s certain cat food my sister’s cat won’t even eat and he’s like the Garfield of fuckin’ cats. Always trying to eat. So that just goes to show you how shitty their food is. Unless you’re Charlie Kelly you’re not supposed to eat cat food. We’re humans. We’re at the top of the food chain. We’re supposed to eat whatever we want. Literally. You want cow. Go ahead. Sheep? Lamb? Chicken? Turkey? Duck? Gator? Deer? Bear? Horse? Veal? Rabbit? I mean the world is at our finger tips. There’s nothing we can’t kill and cook up. It’s all tasty, tasty murder and yet these poor children were eating Meow Mix.
