Okay, so, as a Baltimorean, I know now Ray Rice being suspended for 2 games only and nationally, most of the women, other football teams and their fans are mad about this because he knocked out his now wife. If you’re wondering what I’m thinking, I’ll tell you. Yes, I agree he should be suspended for more game (7 tops), but I what I don’t agree with is that we are in his life instead of our own. Let the police, the team, Ray and his wife deal with that silently, but yet we were exposed to a tape that shouldn’t have been shown to us and only in court. Now, as for his wife being knocked out, I can’t judge him because I don’t know what caused it. You think he just knocked her out because he was ONLY mad at her? That can’t be right because he was a person who spoke against violence, including domestic, publicly since he became a Raven. There has to be more to that final result.
I said all that to say this, it’s not okay to harm a women for plenty of reasons, BUT domestic violence can happen both ways. Since that is a fact, women are not innocent and are simply delicate flowers, especially in the ghetto, where women of a wild nature verbally abuse and physically try to assault a male; mate, family member, or stranger. Most of the time, it’s caused from petty reasons, but they are not supportive reasons to. Also, since domestic violence awareness is more focused on the “male beating on female” scenario, they don’t show or don’t understand that males are getting physically abused by females too…AND getting away with it because if the males defend themselves, they will be looked at as the agressor. I THINK MALES SHOULD GET A PROPER SELF DEFENSE TECHNIQUE GUIDE AGAINST WOMEN! For example, for every type of physical attack a woman usesto abuse a man will come with equal or proper attack back without looking like the agressor. So, if a woman slaps you for a unsupported reason, you slap her back, but don’t put so much force in it to knock her out. The amount of force and technique will depend on the weight and height as well. That way people are on equal terms… or how about this, DON’T HIT A MAN LADIES AND MEN, DON’T HIT A LADY! Simple, but people, get caught up in the emotions and react physically. WE have to look at both sides domestic violence and how we treat others before quickly judge another’s flaws. Like my uncle told me, “Everybody’s a spectator of one’s flaws until they become apart of the unrehearsed play.”
