This is how MSN describes Ray Lewis on it’s news ticker, “Analyst & ex-double murder suspect Ray Lewis said of the NFL star & his alleged domestic abuse, ”Some things you can cover up … some things you can’t.” Not Two time Super bowl winner, MVP, future Hall of Famer. No ex-double murder suspect. What’s the intent of the description? You tell me. Lewis was found not guilty of obstruction of justice but that info was buried in the story.
I don’t even like baseball and this commercial had me in tears.
I watched The View on Monday and I was bored to death, but I gave it another chance and my conclusion is the New View is a bore. There is no chemistry between the hsts and you feel like you are guest at a dinner party. You want to leave but you believe it would be rude to leave before the entree, but you know you will not be there for the dessert. It is in a word–Bad. It will be interesting to see if it gets better, but someone will have to tell me because I will not be watching.

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.

Yesterday the Baltimore Ravens cut Ray Rice after they saw the video of what happened in that NJ casino. When we saw Rice drag his then fiancée off the elevator what did we think happened? She didn’t faint. We could assume he knocked her out, but yesterday when we saw it on the big screen we could no longer keep our collective heads in the sand. We had to acknowledge the obvious, but where do we go from here? The media will talk about the Rice saga until the numbers dip, but what are we going to do? We sit and look at the videotape with horror, but where is that horror when we watch Love and Hip Hop. We see women fighting women, women fighting men and men fighting women and we watch this while devouring popcorn. We call this entertainment. Our young people watch these shows. One of my friends said her daughter thought the Rice situation was bad but she did not find it horrifying. I also saw an 18 year old young man being interviewed last night and he said women have to learn not to disrespect their man. He felt a man was justified to get physical if he believed he was being disrespected. So we need to talk to our young people about what domestic violence really is. Most violence is not played out on the big screen. It is generally done in private. It might be happening to your neighbors or your church members. Some people on your job who are ragging on Rice today might be abusers but you will never know. It is done behind closed doors and there are no cameras. Share your thoughts.
