oh beezy

miscellaneous cultural commentary from two urban twenty-somethings. on this here interweb, we go by "bee" and "zy."

the world doesn’t get it yet

I was perusing Salon’s daily Five Things feature, and noticed this quote from one thing on Rihanna charging her boyfriend with abuse:

Friends of the young star vowed to stand behind her. ‘Everybody’s sick about it,’ said an industry insider who knows the duo. ‘She’s so beautiful and nice. … How do you hit her?’

Emphasis mine. See, here’s what gets me: I don’t give a damn how beautiful or ugly or how nice, or even how mean you are–there is NOTHING that makes a person more or less deserving of abuse or any kind of violence. Abuse is simply never warranted.

Oy.
