Masking the pain of Domestic Violence… Tonight on Conversations Of A Sistah


imagesH5W0AQDL

In light of the recent events in the news with the video going viral of NFL player Ray Rice knocking the crap out of his then fiancé, Janay Rice, (who months later became his wife) in an Atlantic City hotel, this incident sparked new conversations concerning Domestic Violence.

Nationally, nearly 10% of all homicides are committed by an intimate partner (spouse, boyfriend and/or girlfriend), according to the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting data from 2012. Of all the homicides known to be committed by an intimate partner, 80% of the victims are women.

October is Domestic Violence Awareness month and for most victims of domestic violence, there is no witness, no camera. For about half, there is no police report. So the extraordinary footage of the Ray Rice incident is shedding new light on a problem hidden behind so many closed doors, which is why Domestic Violence can be so easily masked behind pain.

Join me tonight at 8:00 PM on “Conversations Of A Sistah” via “Conversations Live” as I talk… masking the painful reality of Domestic Violence.

All “Conversations links” in this post make it possible to access tonight’s show online. 

See you on the air!

        This is so true though! However Chad was a fame whore and it seemed like he became more focused on being on Basketball wives with Evelyn and their new show they had together. I think he got addicted to the fame and it all went down hill from there.
