Is this fair? Domestic violence is a problem in society. It is not the exclusive problem of the NFL. We know the NFL players because they come into our homes 16 times a year, but there are abusers everywhere…what are we going to do about them?

Radisson Hotel Drops Minnesota Vikings Sponsorship amid Peterson abuse allegations

nfl
When the late Bernie Mac joked about “beating kids until the white meat showed” we all laughed, but that kind of beating is truly no laughing matter. Adrian Peterson is facing charges that his discipline went too far. Peterson contends he was simply doing to his children what had been done to him as a child. The Radisson Hotel chain has decided to suspend their limited sponsorship of the Vkings. Over the past few days we have heard pundits encourage companies to consider sponsorship of NFL teams and maybe this is the first company to do it, but will it be the last? Share your thoughts.

Kent State Urban Outfitters Offensive Tee Shirt…why did people buy it?

kent state 5-4-70
Everybody needs a blood splattered tee shirt in their wardrobe…no they don’t. Why would a company sell a shirt like this? May 4, 1970 four students were killed on the Kent State campus. People buying the shirts probably don’t even know that, but the company probably did. So now comes the outrage and the free publicity. sounds like a win-win for Urban Outfitters.

What’s Wrong with an old-fashioned whooping?

What is a switch? Ask any black person over the age of 35 and they will tell you. It is a branch devoid of leaves used for beating children. As a child I can remember visiting my grandmother and she would bring a switch into the kitchen and say the next person that got out of line would be whipped with that switch. It served as a bad behavior determent, but was it right? No, but was it child abuse? In the 60s and 70s children really had no rights and parents and grandparents were free to apply any form of discipline they saw fit, but those days are gone. Adrian Peterson has been indicted for child abuse and he claims he was doing to his child what was done to him. That might be true, but was it right then and is it right now? Share your thoughts.

Ray Rice still has some female fans?


This morning I saw a woman on the Today Show say that she supports Ray Rice. She went on to say that if a woman hits a man first she should not be surprised to be hit back. Over the past week I have heard and read others who share her opinion. What do you think? Share your thoughts.
