These are more sayings than proverbs...heard from older black people!
 
I didn't even beat you - want me to give you something to cry about?
 
If you're not careful, I'll give you a beating you will never forget!
 
If you have a fight at school and don't win, just remember the beating you'll get at home!
 
People in Africa are starving so you will eat what I give you/all the food on that plate!
 
Money don't grown on trees
 
When you grow up you can do what you want with your money, but while under mine, don't tell me what to do with mine!
 
Don't play with  boys, they will get you in trouble/get you pregnant!
 
Don't bring any pregnancy to my house. If you find out you're pregnant don't come home.
 
You have to do it (insert any horrible chore in here) beucase he's your father!
 
You have to listen to him because he's your father!
 
Shut up - I'm watching the news!
 
Stop asking me why. It just is!
 
Call a spade a spade.
 
You can clothe a pig and bathe a pig - a pig is still a pig.
 
Don't accept any gifts from a man becuase they will always want something in return. No such thing as a free lunch.

What about "You ain't shyt just like your daddy"
 
 
But there are many great African-American proverbs not related to foolishness and fighting.
