We are, after all, a country who frequently questions a victim of rape and domestic violence like she was asking for it or provoked it. Women return to their abusers all the time, usually with more severe consequences. Unfortunately, few are aware of the severe emotional and psychological manipulation associated with abuse, and societal shaming keeps victims from speaking out. Authorities do little to help until harm is inflicted. My mother's killer was once her boyfriend. He`s only in jail now and on trial next month, over 23 years later. The ultimate domestic violence, sadly.

People in Europe get it. This is a man who beat the hell out of a woman, and is able to continue living his life like it never happened. Not only is he not sorry, he got a tattoo to openly flaunt what he did. I find it disgusting that we North Americans can so easily forgive and forget such a horrible act because the man is famous. More so, I find it revolting that people can continue to support Chris Brown in any way. Even with the Rihanna incident aside, this man is a huge douche bag.

@auburnjunky this isn't about politics, this is about what i percieve to be double standards. It confuses me and i`m trying to understand that part of american culture.
@intrigid, you`re redirecting the question, why don`t you answer my question first before we move on to a new point?
