Ray & Janay Rice – the video

Short & sweet: don’t loose site of the forest for the tree. Domestic violence is a terrible problem. Why did it take a video to suddenly take this seriously? Listening to Mike & Mike with Jamele Hill this morning they are saying what I’m thinking. People don’t want to believe that “good” men can hit. People don’t understand that victims blame themselves; they aren’t at fault. I am embarrassed for and frustrated with the NFL and the public who required a video to take this more seriously. Quit making victims prove they are victims beyond a shadow of a doubt. Quit focusing on the abusers getting the most attention. Focus on the problem. Take the depth of domestic violence seriously.
