Domestic Violence: Ray and Janay Rice

This will be an extremely short post. No need to rehash all the details of the story or the incident.  If you don’t know what’s going on, just do a quick Google search for Ray Rice.  I’m not here to combat the facts of the story or to bash Ray Rice (though I do not condone violence in any form).  However, I am voicing my opinion on the comments his wife made today.

I have to say this because it’s bothering me. Many of y’all are talking about the Ray Rice situation and what his wife said. First of all, you don’t know that situation or know his wife. Stop calling her stupid, dumb, etc. Victims of domestic violence do not feel stupid while being in that situation. And frankly, if you have never been a victim of domestic violence, you don’t know how it feels.   It’s not an easy process to get out of an abusive relationship. You have to build up strength and courage and change your mentality. It requires a lot of work!  Though I wasn’t physically abused, I suffered from an emotionally abusive relationship (which you can read here) . However, I’m the Valedictorian of my high school class, graduated with a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree, have my CPA license, and a whole lot of other accolades. Do you also think I am stupid? Maybe you do, but my God says differently.

For all of you out there who have so much to say about domestic violence and Ray and Janay Rice, I say this to you:  instead of talking about her, how about you start praying for her and learn to just shut up.

(Sorry, but I had to say it and keep it real.)
