“Chris and Rihanna don’t need to get back together.Such an unhealthy relationship,” @layshakae_x3 tweeted of Brown and Rihanna’s on/off romance, while @theyloveashh_ added, “Be like Rihanna.
For the last month or so, I have been entertaining a new Friend. The day after the recent shamtabulousness occurred, I told Friend of my intention to discuss the whole ridiculous chair-throwing incident with students who are taking my Hip Hop class. But I am wondering what this means in terms of my own gender politics and my own acute understanding of the personal as political.
This brother is cute, sensitive, ambitious, educated, knowledgeable, adventurous and funny. The necessity of that question was driven home the next day as I broached the subject with my students.
For these reasons and others, he could most definitely get it. Disturbingly, all of my Black women students said almost exactly the same thing as Friend said—that the past was the past, that Robin Roberts goaded and pushed Chris, that we didn’t “know the whole story” with Rihanna. These same students who were visibly disturbed at many of the misogynistic lyrics we’d listened to in class failed to see how their own belief that a black woman could ever do something worthy of violence was a complete contradiction.
But there were times when some Black men determined to vote Democrat so they wouldn’t be the target of white racial backlash.
In addition to accompanying their men to the polls to monitor their votes, Black women banded together and encouraged each other to withhold sex from any man who voted against the community’s interests.
But while some reports are claiming a Chris and Rihanna reconciliation could still be on the cards, other sites are alleging that Brown has now moved on from Rihanna and their past dating drama.
recently claimed that Brown is actually now done with Rihanna for good, and knows that he and his former girlfriend are just too different to ever make a relationship work amid reports she’s been getting seriously close with Drake. Given that Friend and I have had conversations of this ilk before, I wasn’t entirely shocked that he would take this tack.Frankly, being mad that someone calls you a bitch or a ho, but not being mad that a dude beats a woman’s ass, seems to be an exercise in missing the point.In a culture where sisters are dying in alarming numbers from domestic violence, what responsibility do I have to them and to myself to choose intimate partners whose thinking and actions are sound on these matters?Chris Brown and Rihanna may have split more than three years ago, but fans are still urging the popstar to stay away from her ex-boyfriend amid reports she’s now getting serious with Drake.‘I was locked up for damn near 4 months and only got 1 visit from you while u was hosting parties and taking secret trips to Toronto, going on dates with Drake!
