Since then, Brown has struggled to remake his image by appearing contrite, but he has also, on at least one occasion, burst into a fit of anger when questioned about the incident.
Brown says he can’t seem to live the 2009 incident down, and he may be right, since white students are now dressing in black face to parody the abusive incident.
Three white students at Waverly High School in Waverly, New York allegedly wore blackface as they reenacted the domestic violence incident between Chris Brown and Rihanna at a pep rally, according to a CNN iReport.
Some observers of the parody say it was racist, but is it racist to re-enact a real-life event? Is it racist? Sexist? Or just in bad taste?
The question parents should be asking is what does a 2009 domestic violence incident have to do with educating their children? It would seem that the students at this high school would have more important things to do than re-enact moments of domestic violence. And was this nonsense approved by the teachers or any other adults at the school?
Domestic violence isn’t something that should be taken lightly. It isn’t a joke. But neither is the value of a good education. Looking at these images, it’s no surprise that students in other countries are running circles around America’s children in science and math.
