We talked in class a few weeks ago about issues of violence, blame, culture and misogyny in relation to the Chris Brown/Rihanna assault. Then just last week, we talked about the constructions of boy culture and girl culture in our society, namely "boys will be boys" and "good girl-ness."
These two clips seemed to be appropriate fuel to our academic fire...
First, recent Chris Brown interview on Good Morning America ends with CB outraged, throwing a chair out of his dressing room window. He reports being very angry that people keep bringing up an incident that happened two years ago.
Then, a response that questions why Chris Brown is so angry and what historical burdens Black artists have faced.
