Dude hit a woman 3 years ago! He's being prosecuted to this day for a mistake that he seemingly hasn't repeated and had no prior history of. Every couple of months or so, it seems as if another random woman (for the most part Caucasian) wants to remind us that Chris Brown is a horrible person. If Chris is at the Grammy's and does a performance, some random woman tweets how horrible he is and doesn't deserve to be at the Grammy's. If he's in a picture with a fan and is smiling, some random woman decides that he should never smile again because he is a terrible person. How long is Chris Brown going to be the new Ike Turner? How many people have to jump on his back before he breaks?
In the latest turn of events, a random nobody tweets about Chris and then a producer for a popular TV show responds. This apparently gets Mr. Brown's attention and he responds accordingly. Now I know about 70% of those reading are probably automatically on the side of "random girl" and "producer guy", but in all honesty isn't Chris allowed to live a life? If someone wants to use his name as a punchline for a joke isn't he allowed a retort? It seems to me as if a young black male is allowed one strike in today's society before he is deemed an outcast! What exactly in the past three years has Chris actually done to warrant such ill-regard amongst his peers? I know there was that thing on the "Today" show, but is that honestly that big of a deal?
Now, before everybody decides that I'm anti-feminist or a woman basher, I will say this: Men should not hit women! It's not cool, it's not macho or in anyway a gentleman should project himself. But, women should also play a part in the equation. To provoke someone with a temperament towards a volatile disposition is like playing Russian roulette. I've seen women press a situation towards violence. I've actually seen one of my friend's in an argument with his girlfriend try to diffuse the situation and walk away. His girlfriend punched him in the back of the head and then pulled a knife on him and tried to stab him. He punched the s#!t out of her, she fell and the knife flew out of her hand. I pulled him away and threw him to the ground and told her to go somewhere. She went and called the cops. When they arrived I gave my statement and told them exactly what happened. Long story short; they both spent the night in jail, and to be honest, I didn't feel sorry for either of them. The point is; just because someone hit a woman doesn't automatically make them the bad guy in a situation. It means they made a poor decision, but the circumstances don't always exonerate the woman. I like to let the facts dictate my level of contempt for a person and not the situation.
Also, if Rhianna has forgiven him, isn't time that every other woman in the world give him a chance as well? The more America harps on this kid the more it seems as if it's a racial thing.
