“Here we go again. Another loud-mouthed commentator perpetuating the storyline that somehow, victims of domestic violence provoke their abusers. This time, it was Steven A. Smith on ESPN’s First Look. In a two minute diatribe Smith at first seem to recognize how appalling it is that Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice has been suspended for only two games after violently assaulting his then-fiancé (now wife) in an elevator, punching her in the face and knocking her out completely.”

“For me, Valentine’s Day is a teachable moment more than a holiday. It’s a perfect time to promote healthy relationships more than romantic gifts and candlelight dinners. Don’t get me wrong. I like a sweet evening out with my honey as much as anybody. I just have a hard time being dreamy-eyed if I’m simultaneously turning a blind eye to the outbreak of domestic and sexual violence still plaguing us. It’s a disorder very difficult to treat.”
