Let’s call you by your name: coward. Let’s call you by what you are: coward. A coward is someone who harms or attacks people who are weaker or unable to defend themselves; someone regarded as fearful and uncourageous. The video of former Baltimore Ravens running star back, Ray Rice pulling a Mike Tyson knockout punch on his then fiancée, now wife Janay Rice, in a Casino elevator is rightfully shinning the light on a human rights issue that has been on the hush-hush for far too long. We see tell-tell signs of battered spouses when we visit with some of our friends and implicitly endorse the savage behavior by shrugging our shoulders and looking the other way, or drinking a beer to male power. Shame on you! Shame on me!
