So recently after some ceremony, I don't really keep up, Solange Knowles, Beyonce and her husband Jay Z were in an elevator and it was caught on tape that Solange hit Jay Z a few times and even kicked him. Folks, especially women, were and are all over Twitter and Facebook cheering her on. It's said that she was protecting her sister. Okay, I get it. But violence is still not okay. The cheering is coming from the same folks who would be up in a roar if violence on any level was directed at a woman. I get it. Solo did what she felt like she had to do. I don't get us cheering about it. And no, I'm not a Jay Z fan and this isn't even about that. It's about us being about our word and commitment to non violence. My two cents.
