Today was the last straw with this bullshit that The Daily What put out, because there’s something else at play that I can’t get with.
People are more concerned with a political or sociological agenda than they are with the actual victim.
First, let’s get one silly notion out of the way. Rihanna owes you nothing. How self-centered of you to even assume so. All she owes is herself peace of mind. She’s the victim and she gets to rationalize her trauma anyway she pleases. If it means following Chris Brown on Twitter, so be it. If it means collaborating with him on a song, then so be it. You don’t need to understand it, all you’re required to do is respect it.
Secondly and this is what disgusts me the most of these anti Chris Brown people. If you are going to consciously distribute pictures of her battered face and copies of the police report, do us all the favor and admit you do not give a fuck about Rihanna. This is only a publicity stunt for you and your blog, because she has stated on multiple accounts how embarrassing those photos are to her. We’ve seen the pictures and read the account, you don’t need to rehash what’s already been told for the past three years. If your motive is more focused on demoralizing Brown than respecting Rihanna’s wishes, you are disingenuous as fuck and taking advantage of a vulnerable situation for your underhanded cause.
Lastly, if you’re going to focus on Chris Brown, please be sure to do the same when a celebrity (who’s not Black) does the same shit. I cannot recall how many times I’ve talked to feminists who will swear Chris Brown is the spawn of the devil, but act completely oblivious about the likes of Eminem, Charlie Sheen, Mel Gibson and their similar actions. The irony of all this is how content Rihanna has become with the situation, while the victims of the other White men get virtually no attention, although they’re vocal about their experiences. If you’re satisfied with degrading a young Black man for his abusive ways, while glancing over the older White men, you need to take a long, hard look at your motives and what you’re really trying to accomplish. You’re just playing into subtle racism by suggesting Black men are more violent and hypermasculine. This is similar to the fight on misogyny in Hip-Hop, while Country, Rock and Pop are overlooked.
Reblogging for reasons, mainly this.
That interview is everything I’m so glad she told that interviewer off but I’m so mad that she had to do it in the first place
