    It all starts in the elevators...

    Some of you may recall the Jay-Z elevator karate flick:


    NFL Ravens running back Ray Rice seemed to have pre-dated Jay with one of his own, a different ending:


    Stephen speaks on the suspension that came from this incident:


    Whoopi's response:


    Listen as Stephen A. Smith apologizes for not being articulate


    Now, if I am not mistaken, he gets paid essentially for his diatribes and articulation of sport related issues.
    Guess his Michael Eric Dyson wasn't kicking in that day.

    Stick to sports commentary Mr. Smith... let Dyson have the social pontifications to himself.


    But more to the discussion at hand, was Stephen right to disown anything and everything he said, or is Whoopi defending what Stephen said more revealing to what is "right" or what is "wrong"?

    I love what Whoopi said, enough of this of a woman hitting a man, and expect not to get hit back. Here it is Ray girl saying that it was her fault, but people still wants to blame the man for reacting. Even when a woman kills a man, saying "he hit me" can still garner sympathy from the court. I've seen cops tell the man to take a walk, and let his woman cool down, and come back home later after she done whupped his rump.

    Now that ain't right.

    Peace!

    Good reason James...

    I thought a better excuse would have been over him saying that the black men were criminals anyway, and deserve to be locked up.

    Peace!

    All those discussions of black pathology..., heck he should've
    been suspended.

    Why couldn't they have brought on some feminist scholar to
    debate him?

    Well,

    We can count on stephen a. to fall back on 'putting black folks in their place'
    with impunity, in the time to come.

    I'm curious:

    Where are all those who were so pro- stephen a. back when
    he was 'telling the truth'????

    ....So far......*crickets*....

    I am going to say it AGAIN and agree with W.G. WOMEN if you hit a man do not be surprised if he hits you back. I personally would not hit a woman (90%) of the time But I will Defend a man that chooses to hit a woman that hit him first.
