Red face Rihanna, Chris Brown dating again.

http://thyblackman.com/2012/02/19/ri...-dating-again/

(ThyBlackMan.com) It wouldn’t be a shocker if Island Bombshell Rihanna and Chris Brown started dating again. Victims of domestic violence often return to their abusers. They’ve reportedly been seen at parties together, possibly holding hands, and have apparently collaborated on a remix of the Rihanna song “Birthday Cake.” As upsetting as it may be for those of us that still have vivid memories of Rihanna’s face after her violent encounter with Chris Brown three years ago, it is her choice.

It would be incredibly easy to say to ourselves Diva ‘Rihanna has gotten over it. She’s forgiven him. She’s moved on. We should do the same.’ A lot of people have been saying this exact thing for the past three years. That misses the point entirely.

Earlier this week there was a huge uproar over a video posted on hip-hop magazine XXL’s website, in which veteran rapper Too Short offered “advice” to teenage boys on dealing with girls that amounted to sexual assault. Apart from the petitions and apologies, the backlash prompted a wide-reaching discussion on the messages sent to youth about sex and sexual violence among community activists, journalists, and scholars across the web. On Twitter, it led to the creation of the hashtag “#ItsBiggerThan2Short.”

It’s bigger than Singer Chris Brown, too.

It’s bigger than RnB Star Chris Brown because he didn’t invent domestic violence. It’s bigger than Chris Brown because he isn’t responsible for hitting every woman that has ever been a victim of domestic violence. It’s bigger than Chris Brown because he won’t be the one to punch your sister, niece, aunt, mother, grandmother, or daughter.

The issue has never been whether Star Chris Brown deserves our forgiveness or a “second chance.” He has paid his debt to society, according to the sentence passed down by a judge. He has a right to work. It doesn’t mean we have to embrace him. And it doesn’t mean we have to forget what he did.

Those young girls who have been fans of his since he was a fresh-faced teenager, drawing comparisons to Michael Jackson or Justin Timberlake, haven’t forgotten. But if the tweets that appeared during Sunday night’s Grammys broadcast that said they would let Brown “beat me up all night” are any indication, they’ve taken entirely the wrong message from this ordeal.

Rumors of Chris Brown attempting to flirt with a woman by saying to her “Can I get your number? I promise I won’t beat you!” prompted another Twitter hashtag game, “#ChrisBrownPickupLines.” Among them were such jewels as “if you like Beats By Dre you’re going looove beats by Chris” and “Are you an angel? You will be in a minute when I’m done beating you to death.” Because really, this is all a big joke, right?

No, this isn’t about Chris Brown at all. This is about how at every turn we have failed to have a real conversation about how to prevent this from happening again. We gloss over Singer Chris Brown’s troubles because of his celebrity or talents or relative youth, then dismiss the influence he has over the culture, young girls specifically, because, as we have shown time and again the past three years, we are not prepared to have a dialogue about how to protect little brown girls from violence. But we need to, now more than ever.

This country is currently waging a war on women and the black and brown ones still remain the most vulnerable. We continue to legitimize the idea of their worthlessness, while simultaneously saying to black boys that their worth lies in an ability to physically dominate and abuse the women in their lives. Everyone is losing.

Singer Rihanna may forgive Chris Brown. She may even welcome him back into her life in a romantic way. I’m not here to psychoanalyze, but I would interpret it as a sign that neither of them have received the help they truly need to recover. But their reconciliation doesn’t solve anything. Our young people need us and they need to know violence against women is wrong and why. They need us to love them enough to overcome jitters and cold feet in order to provide them with the tools they need to love one another in a meaningful way.

Should they get back together? Chris Brown? Rihanna? Why is the media only picking on Chris Brown? Is Rihanna a saint herself? Or Rihanna just love Bad Boys? Is Rihanna a Role model?

Re: Rihanna, Chris Brown dating again.

A lot of the fags I'm usually stuck with have said the same thing. It has to do with a naked picture of Chris Brown that was posted on the Internet.

Just when I thought the tackiness of Britney Spears couldn't be matched. Make these awful celebrities go away. I think their people leak even negative stories to get publicity.

Re: Rihanna, Chris Brown dating again.

The sad part is, these no-talent trashbags have made far more money than Ike and Tina ever did.

Re: Rihanna, Chris Brown dating again.

I thought Chris Brown had a girlfriend.

It this is true, Rihanna is even crazier than I thought.

Let's be careful, here.
The victims of domestic violence you are talking here returns to the abuser because they have nowhere to go, often their family is far away, have no mean to support themselves and are afraid to lose their children and be killed if they leave.
These are ordinary women who are totally dependent on the man as means of supports.
Often times, even if support system is available to them, they may not be aware of it.


None of that apply here to Rihanna .

When Rihanna has that riveting interview with Diane Sawyer, she seems mature beyond her years, she promised to use her situation to sensitize girls or women everywhere no to follow her example of staying in a toxic relationship, and she gained lots of respect and sympathy from everyone.


But for few months now, she has done things that are puzzling and had many people scratch their head.

Not a surprise, really. She "likes the way it hurts" after all.

Re: Rihanna, Chris Brown dating again.

Poor imbecile.

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Re: Rihanna, Chris Brown dating again.

This is coming out now? She only broke with him because of the public outcry and was still hooking up with him when she was dating Matt Kemp.

Is Chris Brown the one who did the sex tape with Kim Kardashian?

I do not feel sorry for her.

Let's not confuse her case with women who are true victims and have no resources to save themselves.
She has betrayed the trust of lot of people.


If, God forbids, something tragic happened to her, there is one else to blame but herself.
She did not have to go back, she promised everyone on US national TV she will never do that again, and urged other women and girls to not let themselves be blinded by so called love and be trapped in such a relationship.

No, it is Ray J., younger brother of Brandy.

He was also rumored to be Whitney Houston's last boyfriend
