I'm with Shaka64 on this one. While my first instinct would be to defend the Black woman, I have seen a few situations where it was actually mutual combat. If it's mutual, I may try to persuade the man to stop but, you could be involving yourself in a situation where "she don't wanna be saved". I have involved myself in a situation somewhat like this with a female family member and let's just say that I got really tired of probation!!
