Do You really believe Chris Brown hit Rhianna?
Yeah, I do believe he hit her. He shouldn't have. Boys ain't supposed to hit Girls!
Quickly, I learned that she loved Chris Brown and hated Rhianna! I asked her why she hated Rhianna when she didn't know either of them? She replied that Rhianna drives Chris Brown's car in the Video, blah blah blah!
But baby the videos are not real. Producers bring those cars and things for the video. Producers write the stories for the videos. She's looked so shocked! I asked. You don't like Rhianna cause she's pretty and light skinned, huh?
I'm thinking about the budding female psychology of female competition and competitive hatred that she and so many other young Women will have in real life towards other females who may snag the attention of a young cute boy in junior high, high school, college, work and overall life. The whole light skinned, long hair, skinny or not thang. How can you explain over four hundred years of Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome to a 6th grader? How do you tell a kid about the Multi verses when they only know one block of Earth?
No! I don't like her cause Chris Brown is the real star and she's just with him!
She's 11 years old and in the sixth grade. Both girls articulated their points so well. It was surprising for me to see that neither girl knew that Rhianna has sold more records than Chris and that in the overall scheme of things she would be the bigger star or Star because of that!
It didn't matter! They were hurt! For them seeing Chris Brown in a bad light was earth shaking and disturbing. They didn't know if they wanted to be fans anymore. That's hard and harsh for a youngling.
They understood the rules. Boys don't hurt Girls! And someone they admired and have a crush on has disappointed them cause they broke the rules.
I really didn't know how to explain to them that Chris and Rhianna are human beings and that they make mistakes. You can still like them and their music but realize they aren't perfect. Sure I can write this down now but when put on the spot like that!
My brain was like NKNNFD &$^#Wuzzle Beeep! KKKKK AGGGGHE ACK!
A week from now Chris and Rhi may be broken up or maybe not and unfortunately the general public will weigh in on their relationship but People do terrible things that they later regret. This is a universal truth. Here's hoping that Regret becomes Repentance and then Redemption.
Here's hoping for Acceptance and Atonement and Absolution!
BE Careful! BE Mindful! BE Prayerful!
