Chris Brown – Is he racist?
Singer Chris Brown has a right to be angry according to one therapist who says Brown is being discriminated against.
“The media continues to hound Chris Brown for assaulting Rihanna while Charlie Sheen still remains the golden boy even though he, too, assaulted a woman” says Los Angeles based therapist and Human Behavior Expert, Patrick Wanis Ph.D.
“Singer Chris Brown is still angry – he allegedly smashed a window at Good Morning America studios following an interview where he was visibly annoyed by the questioning of his past domestic violence. But Chris Brown is also angry because he believes the media lets Charlie Sheen get away with domestic violence – Brown Tweeted, ‘I’m so over people bring this past s**t up!! Yet we praise Charlie sheen and other celebs for [their] bullsh**t.’ Chris Brown is right – where is the tough questioning by the seasoned reporters and journalists? CNN’s Piers Morgan gave Sheen a free pass while interviewing him even though Piers Morgan had vehemently chased and battled Whitney Houston in court over her addictions; so why was Piers Morgan afraid of Sheen?” asks Dr. Wanis.
“Is racism the reason we let Charlie Sheen use the media to sell his message and tour while we condemn Brown for trying to sell his music?” asks Wanis.
“Yes, Brown hasn’t resolved his anger issues which contributed to his act of domestic violence in the first place, but Brown is also justified in his frustration – would Robin Roberts have prodded Charlie Sheen about his assault on Brooke Mueller, the same way she did with Brown – and 2 yrs after the incident? And is the real reason that Mel Gibson couldn’t escape the media’s criticism because we heard his anger and abuse against Oksana or because of Gibson’s racist comments?”
