Well Said, James Brown

The video is less than 2 minutes long, and very worth while. Check it out: He. Is. Awesome.

James Brown, CBS Sports Commentator said the perfect thing regarding the domestic violence that football player Ray Rice has committed against his partner. He says, in part:

“…this problem is bigger than football. There has been, appropriately so, intense and widespread outrage following the release of the video showing what happened inside the elevator at the casino. But wouldn’t it be productive if this collective outrage, as my colleagues have said, could be channelled to truly hear and address the long-suffering cries for help by so many women? And as they said, do something about it? Like an on-going education of men about what healthy, respectful manhood is all about. And it starts with how we view women.”

  1. Very well said! The timing for this goes well with the current increase in awareness of the effects of concussion and head injury in the NFL. It’s a bad combination to have poor respect for woman and poor self regulatory behavior.
