Did the NFL give Cover Girl a black eye?

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?

What does the church say about domestic abuse?

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.

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.
