I’m listening to the latest parts of this Janay Rice interview with Matt Lauer, who asked some good questions, and after hearing her speak more about it I am so over it. Sadly I’m over Domestic Violence as a whole now, don’t bother telling me about it. Let me say some of the issues I have with this and then move on. First she is still trying to bury the situation almost like it is not DV, this is one of my biggest beefs with the situation mainly because for most women to understand they have to leave that type of situation someone else has to tell them.
She admits she is still refusing to see the second part of the video which is the elevator video, so in case your unfamiliar it is when he spat in her face knocks her ass out, then half assed dragged her by one foot partially out the elevator. Damn! right? I just wrote it and it sounds graphic? So you can tell me it’s not him, tell me it’s for your family, and tell me you were both intoxicated. I and many men I know have never done anything like that to a woman, so to those people I speak of its not them, but he did that. That’s him. It would have been better in my opinion if she just never said anything at all. Just don’t speak up. Because it is just making excuses for it as many others going through something similar. And so I am over it all of it. We can’t shame the victim and we won’t find out of it happens again hell they practically buried this incident (till somebody missed a payment or someone new saw a come up). I believe in respecting people’s feelings and at most times being politically correct but how in doing so do I not turn my back on domestic violence? I’ll mind my business next time he knocks your ass out and for right now do the same for all. And people say New Yorkers are rude, we just mind our own business.
Respect to her mom, Candy Palmer kind of kept it real with her statements but I feel she also has to respect her daughters wishes on this one. -Vonte
