Jay Z attends The Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute benefit gala celebrating "Charles James: Beyond Fashion" on Monday, May 5, 2014, in New York.

Family violence spills outside with Jay Z incident

Question of the day

Family violence is in the news. Solange Knowles was caught on camera assaulting Jay Z in an elevator. Baltimore Ravens player Ray Rice knocked out his long-time girlfriend, dragged her off an elevator, and married her a short time later. What do you have to say about the domestic violence that’s spilling outside the home? Is violence in families the new normal, or is it finally time to confront domestic violence?

I’m a huge Jalen Hurts fan, but this loss is on him. I know Scott fumbled and Reagor dropped that last pass, but you can’t throw 3 interceptions in a game. Hopefully he learns from this and stops forcing passes into coverage. #frustrating
The acquittal of #KyleRittenhouse opens the door for white vigilantes to kill anyone they want to. It also puts a spotlight on the judge’s biased actions during the trial.
God is so good. Two years ago today we founded @ManUpPHL with a  citywide meeting on gun violence. Tonight we celebrate that with a dinner and strategy session with mentors and mentees who are working together to change lives. We are fully funded, we have committed volunteers, and we have a Listening to the Streets initiative that gets brothers off the streets and into jobs. This week we release our first white paper based on that program. We work to end gun violence one life at a time. Can’t wait to see what the next two years brings!

The look on this border agent’s face as he grabs this #Haitian migrant at the border says it all. I am so hurt to see Black people treated this way. It looks like a scene out of #Roots.

Sadly, there has always been violence in and outside of families. However, the advent of Social Media makes it alot more visible.

Solomon Jones

Social media makes everything more visible, and that’s not necessarily a good thing. The question for me is whether that visibility makes things better by forcing us to confront it, or makes things worse by making every negative behavior seem normal.
