Big Brother’s Rape Humor not funny…Frankie Grande leads the pack


Last season’s Big Brother group brought a little racism to the mix. BB16 has decided to bring a little sexism just for fun. Watch as castmates joke about raping Fellow castmate Victoria Rafaeli. Frankie Grande leads the laughter, but it is even more appalling is the presence of Christine. Do these people forget the camera is on 24/7? The next live broadcast is Thursday. perhaps the apology will come then.

Stephen A. Smith Apology

Stephen A. Smith is so wrong on Domestic Violence

Stephen A. Smith has an opinion on everything. Unfortunately his opinions on domestic violence are dead wrong. A few days ago Smith suggested that women have to stop provoking their men. What? No there is no justification for domestic violence. Men are not animals they possess the capacity to walk away from a volatile situation. When Smith takes the microphone and tells women to stop provoking he is saying that by provoking them you are providing a reason for the abuse, and that kind of thinking is very dangerous and reckless.

Is Ray Rice’s 2 game suspension a slap on the wrist?

Ray Rice knocked his then girlfriend out in the elevator of a New Jersey casino. He has tearfully apologized and his now wife has stood by her man, but did the NFL do enough? today they announced his two game suspension and his coach has said they want to move on, but should we move on. Why do we move so quickly when dealing with domestic violence? How many people grew up in homes that you frequently heard” what happens in this house stays in this house”, and often domestic violence was one of those things. The Rice incident put his business out for the world to see and pass judgment on, but is this punishment enough? Share your thoughts.

Do you understand autism?

Let me answer the question in the headline-no I don’t understand it. Television shows like Parenthood feature autistic characters, but as my friend pointed out most television autistic characters are high functioning, but what do you do when you have two adult non-verbal autistic sons? Do you lock them in a basement? A couple in Maryland did just that and there story is circulating and people are making their comments and their judgments, but who are we to judge? Yes we can agree that keeping two people padlocked in a room for hours could easily be defined as cruel and unusual, but we do need to hear their story. We need to know whether they had sought resources and were they denied? There is more to this story and we need to know all the facts before we think about casting the first stone.

Joan Rivers can dish it out, but she can’t take it


Joan Rivers can be crude and mean. Her show Fashion Police is her pulpit. She says things about celebrities that make people gasp, but that is what Rivers does. She goes for the shock value, but she does not like sitting on the hot seat. She is a bully who cloaks her meaness in humor. Well, yesterday when she started to feel uncomfortable she left the interview showing she can dish it out, but she can’t take it.
