Sorry I’ve not blogged in a long time. I shall waste no time in explaining the reasons why.
My heart is heavy right now.
So, I just had a conversation with some colleagues about Domestic Violence.
It all started with who likes dancehall music and who doesn’t. For those who liked dancehall, the discussion moved to who the “hardest” dancehall performer is.
Eventually, Chris Brown found his way into the mix. And inevitably, the Chris Brown/Rihanna saga became the main topic.
I was sitting there, just listening as they argued if Chris Brown apologized publicly for beating Rihanna. I was quiet till someone said “she deserved it.”
Let’s get this straight. I do not listen to Rihanna’s songs. That is just me. (And trust me, it has got nothing to do with herself and Nicky Minaj who in my opinion, are the epitome of almost everything fake. Misleading young girls that, beauty has to be in the fake hair, eyes lashes, hips and breasts and that being sexy means wearing nothing in public… just my opinion) But I found myself defending her in this argument.
Anyone who knows me should know too well that I get very touchy on Domestic Violence Issues.
Hello??????? That just got me fired up. Now, no one, and I mean absolutely NO ONE has the rights to hit anyone.
I couldn’t believe that in the 21st century, people still believe victims of Domestic Violence “deserve” to be beaten.
Chris Brown had no valid reason to beat Rihanna. And same applies to any man who has raised his hands on a woman. Now, this goes both ways. Some people claim Rihanna had always beaten Chris Brown. If this was true, then she’s just as guilty as Chris Brown (who by the way, I think has paid enough for his actions.)
Any man who raises his hands on a woman is nothing but a disgrace to other men. And any women who hits a man is equally a disgrace to womanhood. If physical violence is your only and last resort to solving problems, you and people of your kind should be blamed for all the wars going on in the world.
I am really annoyed. I don’t know if I’m even making sense in this post or even articulating myself as I should.
