RAY RICE WAS DEAD WRONG!
AS a HUMAN DEAD WRONG!
AS a MAN DEAD WRONG!
Who cares if he is “a nice guy”..
There is no need to feel sorry for a MAN who knocks out a woman.
Save your understanding for the woman that he was supposed to LOVE and CHERISH and RESPECT and PROTECT.
Oh yes I said it because that is his job as a MAN, as her mate, as her daughter’s Father. That is HIS charge.
To Treat her that way, to reduce her to that, and to subject her to that kind of treatment is UNACCEPTABLE!!
RAY RICE was DEAD WRONG.
What he did was CONDUCT UNBECOMING OF A MAN! Sure he can apologize as so many others have done but as the statistics show the apologies often come too late. He hit her and drug her like a piece of meat. Not like a MAN who loves the woman who has mothered his child.
We can not excuse away his responsibility as a MAN!! The what ifs and maybe’s and assumptions of provocation are all totally irrelevant.
If you watch that video and your reaction is, “WELL MAYBE SHE”, then you are a part of the PROBLEM!!! Domestic Violence is a problem. People abusing others and excusing it away by finding something that the victim did that can justify their actions. Do you think the same when people beat their children? Or punch them in the head? Would you be saying well maybe the kid pissed them off? I doubt it. The mindset that children should be protected but maybe the woman did something to present herself as a human punching bag is beyond asinine!!
We should be outraged about all domestic violence. We should be concerned about the safety and well being of all women, no matter how much money their mate makes. We must be more supportive of women and also more truthful with men. It is not okay to physically attack another human being. We must stop believing this lie that we are somehow not connected and what happens to one person has nothing to do with another. Life takes a village! Not just child rearing!
Curtailing the Epidemic of Domestic Violence we face DEMANDS THAT MEN STAND UP AND TELL THE OFFENDERS THEY ARE WRONG! Simply because they are MEN!
RAY RICE WAS DEAD WRONG! BECAUSE AINT HE A MAN!!
