Yeah, that is why it is scary when it is present in our own sub-culture behind the excuse that R. Kelly is a musical genius. Pfft.

BET cut out the part where I mentioned some of the excuses that I have PERSONALLY heard from black people. (Actually, they cut about 1/3 of the whole column.) I kid you not when I say that I went natural because my beautician was saying that "R. Kelly was just doing what any man would do", and I knew that I couldn't cuss her out AND let her give me a perm.
When I worked as a labourer a few years back, some of the guys I was with would gleefully talk about the holidays they were planning to Thailand, where they could indulge just those kind of urges. I never once thought it was 'what any man would do', I just thought I was working alongside some real scum.

rkelly is a rnb music geniuse

No, he's not.
Just wanted to agree. He sucks. I have only in my life heard 1 R. Kelly song I liked. He's also the only guy I can think of who could do Trapped in the CLoset with an apparently straight face. You have to have a Galactus-sized ego for that.

The way I see it, the kid could've had the best self-esteem anf self-confidence in the world, and stepped to R. Kelly bucket nekkid pleading and begging for him to piss on her...and you know what? He still is wrong. He was the adult in the situation,
Exactly. That's the only thing that really matters. Did she want it? Did he have to force her? Who cares, he's an adult, he should say no. She could chase him down the street pleading for him to pee on her, but he's an adult, she's not, he has to say no.
