The first time stacey talks back to his mother in teh novel, Big Ma says that stacey "needs a whippin". Mama however, disagrees. What does Mama say that stacey needs? Why does mama say what she says? What does this moment make clear abput mama's earlier reluctance to see papa leave for the railroad?
