The video footage of Ray Rice dragging his girl
to a simple tweet that the Dolphins player sent out.

I think that what's happening in this country is
there is an identifiable shift to how we treat
the freedom of expression/speech - based on
our use of social media.

And words that strike hot-button issues (sexuality,
race, religion etc..) impact/shock society moreso
than the image of a man dragging his unconscious
wife out of an elevator - and I think it's a fair
point to say that this warrants a deeper investigation
as to how we function as a society.

nobody is mad for sterling or any other idiot for thinking dumb shit.

but when you put it out there for others to opine upon, don't be surprised that everyone else isn't dumb like you.

yeah, the outcomes may not seem equitable but really, if you don't want any of that to happen, stfu and kim.

twitter is proof that people shouldn't say everything they're thinking.

plus sterling did way more than have a "private" conversation. so miss me with that spin, doctor.

because if there's one thing we'll remember joseph for, it's that he had jokes.

but the bigger thing i'm seeing is that before we start moralizing on the disproportionate punishments, everyone should think carefully about whether they were worrying about rice before sterling or before sam.

it's either wrong or it's not wrong.

if you're the kind of person that only takes the moral high ground in defense of someone else acting despicably and receiving dissimilar consequences, then you probably don't really care.

where were you on steubenville? what did you think about kobe's case?

i will say there's significant overlap between the "ewww they kissed" and the "gotta hear both sides" when it comes to rape and violence against women crowds on okp,
