Now you KNOW I had to discuss the Chris Brown interview that aired last night. The fact Chris Brown and his momma Joyce Hawkins (along with his lawyer thrown in for good measure) appeared on Larry King spoke volumes. This is part of the “Don’t Believe What Your Eyes Are Showing You” Tour. Or as Khadija, blog host of Muslim Bushido so aptly wrote about recently: The Mass Gaslighting of African American Women.
We are being pressured to have a pity party for a felon and:
- Ignore the fact this is a grown man over the age of 18.
- Ignore the fact he beat and threatened to kill a woman.
- Ignore the fact the police report states he was a serial abuser.
He claimed to “love” Rihanna. He talked about how difficult this “situation” is. Boo Hoo. He said he couldn’t “remember” punching, kicking, biting a woman with one hand, seeing blood splatter the dashboard all while driving a car with the other hand. That’s a skill set! Someone from his record label likely screamed at him how that’s serial killer talk. So he tried to amend what he STATED VERY PLAINLY by claiming he “misspoke”. Which is PR talk for Cover Your A**. See what had happened was/I meant to say.. Give me a break.
We don’t remember things that have no meaning to us. So his beating a woman to a bloody pulp was so far down on his list of priorities he couldn’t even recall that he’d done it. It had happened so many times before that he couldn’t recall that one particular act of violation. He had dance routines he could think of first but using his fist to communicate his inadequacies..nope!
Read the police report for yourself.
I was waiting for a litany of excuses. I was waiting for the “but what about blah blah who did blah blah“. The same variation of “my baby isn’t a criminal”. Mind you this “baby” is a grown man! That doesn’t stop these women from ignoring the crimes their sons have committed and declaring them “victims”. Victims of what I don’t know. Being held responsible is a foreign concept to some people no matter what the price.
Just ask Nathan Walker’s mommy. Just ask William Balfour’s. Just ask the one who’s going to cry for “Jesus” and say you need to “forgive” the next miscreant that shoots at, rapes or steals from you or your child. Ok I’ll bite: what about OJ, R Kelly, Miles Davis…and let me tell you the list could go on and on…..and on and on. This history of abuse from black men against black women has always been there to view for those who decided to look and SEE it! It’s time to take a stand against this blanket knee-jerk criminal amnesty being given to men who have no REGRETS, haven’t CHANGED one iota and have no plans for making amends.
