  • Has Fatherhood Become the New Mercedes-Benz?

    It used to be that a tailor-made suit and a Mercedes-Benz were context clues signaling a man’s ability to “provide” and consequently, those were things made a man "sexy". But could it be that for today’s professional women, fatherhood is the modern-day equivalent of a Benz? ...

  • What Does This Election Tell Us About What A "Real American" Is?

    “What on earth is he talking about?”... to put it simply..what does a Real American look like, sound like, act like, eat, wear and drive? Where do Real Americans live? What religion do they belong to? The questions are endless, but as we put answers to the questions will you fit the mold of a “Real American”?

  • “Rope-a-Dope” or Political “SHAKE and BAKE?

    Here’s the deal… President Obama was eaten alive in the 1st debate... BUT could this have been a good thing? Regardless of whether he was off his game or engaging in the most daring “rope-a-dope” in the history of politics, that awful debate performance sets the Obama campaign up for a little "shake and bake." Here’s why.

This is part of a discussion on the Huffington Post. The term "fires back" was used to gin up some ratings and hits, but there were really no fireworks here. Having said that I'm with Chris Brown on this one...Here were my thoughts on the overall coverage of the Chris/Rihana saga:

Bottom line, is that both Chris and Rihana were victims and that they BOTH have some responsibility for what happened. I know you don't want to hear it or admit it or that it's not politically correct, but it's true.It was well reported that Rihana was the initial "abuser" in the relationship and that she had a history of hitting the men whom she was involved with (this was reported by her family and you can find it easily on the gossip sites "Rihana Don't play").... The problem this time for Rihana is that she began this cycle with a KID who has a history of abuse in his household, watching his mother being abused. If the discussion was honest, then someone would have pointed out the fact that it's likely that Rihana "awakened the beast within". I wish Oprah would've at least pointed out that possibility.... The problem: whole discussion is that it presented as 'Men shouldn't hit women'. But then what if we have a gay couple; is domestic violence suddenly not as bad? The answer is, yes. This discussion should have addressed the abuse of weaker individuals by stronger individuals, irregardless of their gender. It also should've talked practically about things to do to avoid confrontations like the one that transpired, for example if you have an angry spouse and he OR SHE wants to get away from you to calm down, don't jump in their car demanding an argument... let them walk away... just some thoughts
