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!”

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?

Iyanla Fix My Life-34 children by 17 women…don’t blame his parents

I am watching Iyanla Fix My Life season opener. Jay is the father of 34 children by 17 women. Listening to his parents it is obvious they were not ideal parents, but they are not the reason that this 44 year old man has 34 children by 17 women. He did it. He is responsible for his actions not his parents. This is the first of three parts. Vanzant is dealing with his pain but what about the children. They will be a part of this series, but what happens when she packs up her cameras? Will anybody be fixed or is that the point? Is this simply a sensational story exploited for ratings? Share your thoughts.

Are there any honest politicians?

Rob McDonnell, John Edwards, Kwame Kilpatrick, Ray Nagin, Jesse Jackson Jr., Sheila Dixon, and Marian Berry. What do they have in common? They had power and position and they misused it, but are politicians only as honest as their opportunities? Share your thoughts.

The beauty of White Privilege is you don’t realize you have it

Over the past few days I have listened to the debate regarding white privilege. Some argue it simply does not exist and others argue that it is one of the impediments that stops the economic ascension of minorities, but is it real? Yes it is very real. The privilege is granted at birth when you automatically receive the benefit of the doubt. Share your thoughts.

Who are the angels among us?

Today the New York Times wrote an article about Michael Brown. In the article they said Brown was “no angel”. Show me an angel among us. They chronicled his aspirations to be a rapper and even his consumption of alcohol and drugs. No it does not sound like the life of an angel but it does sound like the life of a teen. No not all teens do the things Brown did but when he was shot by the police did they know then that he was no angel? We’re not called to be angels. We are citizens of the United States, and some of us try to be model citizens but even that does not ensure your safety. The media is looking for a reason to explain what many people believe is unreasonable, but the he is no angel defense is simply not going to cut it.
