After a recent interview and performance on Good Morning America, hip hop artist Chris Brown stormed off set and into his dressing room. When he emerged, he was shirtless and a thick glass window had been smashed.
What set him off during the interview? Interviewer Robin Roberts’ questioned Brown about the incident regarding Rhianna asking, “Have you all seen each other, been around each other?”
Recall that in 2009 Brown pleaded guilty to felony assault, when then girlfriend Rhianna’s face ran into Brown’s fists. Fair question, one would think. Roberts was giving Brown a chance show his maturation over the past two years. Mission accomplished. Brown’s response:
I mean, not really. It’s not really a big deal to me now as far as that situation. I think I’m past that in my life.
Brown proved he was past giving his girlfriends beatdowns by applying his new anger management skills to CBS Green Room windows. At least Brown held it together long enough to complete the interview, perform ‘Yeah 3x’ the single from his latest album, and not give a Robin Roberts a beatdown. Roberts likely doesn’t realize how much of a close call that was.
But as Brown says, “I think I’m past that in my life.” After all, there were no witnesses to the window breakage in the Green Room, so the “It wasn’t me” defense made famous by Bill Clinton could work. Not to mention it’s been what…two years, since Brown has publicly beaten down any woman.
For Gen-Y, two years is plenty of time for Brown to be “past that in his life.” Two years to black youngsters is a lifetime in fact. Heck, why haven’t we elected Chris Brown president? Oh yeah, we still have to wait for that other black, know-it-all youngster to leave first.
I’m convinced that Brown is “past that in his life.” He could not possibly still be a violent young man continuing on a path of destruction and fits of rage to women, though windows is another matter. To question Brown on beating an ex-girlfriend may be best summed up in the words of another angry young black man, former heavyweight champion and great black philosopher Mike Tyson:
I understand that Brown wants to distance himself from the incident. His violence against Rhianna almost cost him his career, as not long after he was literally begging his former audience to save him, as TMZ reported back in Mar of 2010:
Brown begs his fans to help “bring me back”– saying “a lot of radio stations aren’t playing my records. They are not being that supportive and I wouldn’t expect them to.” Brown goes on to say he’s “a better guy now” … but says “[My music] won’t be possible if I’m not relevant on the radio.
His audience back, Brown would do anything not to remind him of his past, and he destroyed a Green Room window to prove it.
The sad thing is there are many Chris Brown’s out there. They are angry young black men who have not learned how to deal with their anger rationally. The role models to which young black men aspire may show you how to dunk a basketball, spit a rhyme, or look cool in public, but nothing replaces a good father showing you how to act at home.
Liberals have created these angry young black men, rudderless ships, sailed by absent captains. It’s not like young black men don’t have enough reasons to be angry, given their unemployment numbers, incarceration rates, and the post-traumatic stress syndrome suffered from watching their friends die far too often and too young, usually at the hands of other angry, black men.
The Left fuels that anger, teaching young black men how to grow up to angry. The Left however doesn’t want these young black men to understand their anger, which invariably grows into hate. So these young men take their hate and anger out on those nearest them—their wives and girlfriends.
Young black men in many cases have reduced the women they claim to love to “b*tches and hos” and then treat them thusly. This could be because they NOW generation of Liberal white women made sure that the woman’s virtue was destroyed, as they made women into…MEN!
I am black woman, hear me roar…right after I get back from the welfare office.
I’m certainly not blaming Chris Brown for being a product of the system that Liberals have imposed for blacks. Nope, he’s just the product, as is Rhianna. Take away their money, and they join the many nameless faceless black youth who have been sucked into the vortex of Liberals, the real culprits.
Robin Roberts gave Brown the greatest gift. Brown had an opportunity to address his past indiscretion with dignity and grace, saying something like…
I behaved horribly with Rhianna and not a day goes by that I don’t regret my actions. Through counseling, I have learned to understand my anger and to put it in more appropriate places, like my workouts.
That’s my rant!
