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.

Politics from the Eyes of an Ebony Mom is 7 years old today

I have been writing this blog for 7 years. I have written over 5,000 posts. This blog has given me the opportunity to have a conversation with people all over the world. My goal has been to have a discussion that is inclusive. I post opinions that agree with my own and I also post those that don’t. The only thing I ask is that we respect each other. Thank you for reading and I will continue to write.

Ray Rice is a Man not a Monster

How many times will the networks play the horrific video? We’ve seen it on every network for the past few days. Each time has to be another stab in the heart for Janay Rice, but her feelings are lost in the media hysteria. Ray Rice lost his job, his reputation, his endorsements, and he faces an uncertain future. Rice is no victim, but he is no monster. Rice is a man who made a terrible decision. No man ever has the right to hit a woman, but let’s not make Rice the face of domestic violence. It is ironic that some of his critics probably have also raised their hands to their woman, but fortunately for them there is no footage for the world to see. The NFL currently employs other abusers and at this point their contracts have not been nullified. The Ravens play on national television tomorrow night and the Rice conversation will continue, but the discussion needs to move in a new direction. Rice is history and it is time to let him and his family move on with their new life. It is also time to address the cadre of abusers that will suit up on Sunday. Deal with them.

Janay Rice calls this a “horrible nightmare”

“I woke up this morning feeling like I had a horrible nightmare, feeling like I’m mourning the death of my closest friend. But to have to accept the fact that it’s reality is a nightmare in itself. No one knows the pain that the media & unwanted [opinions] from the public has caused my family. To make us relive a moment in our lives that we regret every day is a horrible thing. To take something away from the man I love that he has worked his ass of for all his life just to gain ratings is horrific. THIS IS OUR LIFE! What don’t you all get. If your intentions were to hurt us, embarrass us, make us feel alone, take all happiness away, you’ve succeeded on so many levels. Just know we will continue to grow & show the world what real love is! Ravensnation we love you!”

Baltimore Ravens cut Ray Rice…was this the right decision?

Ray Rice is now a former Baltimore Raven. He was cut today after the 2nd video of his elevator fight with his wife became public. The NFL had suspended Rice for 2 games but the Ravens decided today to terminate his contract. Was this the right decision?

Ray Rice elevator knockout…did NFL see this tape before his suspension?

We saw Ray Rice drag his fiancee off the elevator, but this morning we now see him knock her out. Did the NFL see this tape before they gave him the 2 game suspension?
