A GREAT FRIDAY MESSAGE: Dear Summer...You Tried To Take Me OUT...BUT THANK GOD I MADE IT!


GOOD MORNING EVERYONE! The last UNOFFICIAL days of Summer are upon us as the 3 day weekend of Labor Day arrives. I pray that everyone has a fun and safe Labor Day. I will be doing ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! Still recovering after a LONG August as all the students are up and going in classes and it's been a great first week! God Bless everyone on today and it's your time to make the BEST THINGS in your life happen for you!

So, summer is OVER...and I mean OVER!!! I really don't have any words for what this summer was for me. An up and down MESS! LOL! I learned a lot about not only other people, but also MYSELF! I learned that folks aren't all they say they are and that people don't care about you and stay like they say they will. About myself...I learned that I can do things on my own. It's not as easy, but my faith in God has totally grown so much in the last few months and I thank God for that. You see, God pulled a lot of people out of our lives these last few months. A complete SHIFT of who we were and the people around us happened like never before. I really looked like "WHY GOD?!?" I liked who I had around me, but God said "They can't go with you, where I'm taking you!" I don't know if this happened to anyone else this summer, but that stuff tripped me out! A lot of alone times and days where it was no one but Jesus and I. Folks I noticed only wanted to be around me for certain reasons or said they would call and said they cared, but I found out they really didn't. I had to learn to truly be comfortable with myself and in my own skin. I want to encourage someone today because maybe you went through the same things that I did this summer. LET THOSE PEOPLE GO! Things may have been HARD for you this summer, but at the end of the day....THANK GOD THAT YOU MADE IT THROUGH!

This summer made me think about the story of Joseph in Genesis. How his own brothers sold him into captivity and it looked like it was all over for him. But see, God has to GET HIM ALONE, away from all he knew and loved, just so He could minister to him and get him to the place he needed to be. Not just to a place where he helped out himself, but to a place where in the end, he ended up helping out his own family and countrymen. See, we sometimes throw a FIT when God takes people out of our lives. We act like we won't make it by ourselves and that being alone is way too hard. I even know Winter is coming and being alone can be even harder then. I just want to encourage some today that it's time to go for your dreams again and that you can MAKE IT! At times, when we separate ourselves from certain people and things, a whole new thought process opens up for us. We need to get our mindset, hearts, and souls right for where God is trying to take us. We have to realize that not everyone can go to GLORY with us! Not everyone can stand at the mountain top with us when God gets us there. You are going to MAKE IT! Don't worry about who is there or not there, JESUS IS THERE! Even the people who walked away and did you dirty, don't worry about them, just pray for them. God has so much in store for you and just know the best is yet to come! God still has 4 months left in this year to work out a miracle in your life! Be Patient, Stay Hungry and Determined! GO FOR WHAT GOD HAS FOR YOU! GOD BLESS!

Fellas...TELL THE TRUTH! Would You Rather Have An Over Thinking Woman Or A Woman Who Doesn't Think Enough?


Good Morning Everyone! I had my FIRST class last night and I'm into my 3rd year teaching our Black Males New Student Seminar Course here at Ivy Tech Community College in Indy! GOD IS GOOD! I had 15 wonderful Gentlemen, went over the facts of the class and 20 minutes later, I said "You Gentleman have a Good Evening..." They looked at me in SHOCK! "THAT'S IT!?!" "We were ready to talk!" I said, "You better be here for class then!" LOL! I'm excited to be with some great Black Males, teaching them and helping their minds one more semester. God bless everyone on today and I hope and pray that you're living out your dreams and changing lives. Know that God has given you so many gifts to be amazing great! Don't take your gifts or your days on Earth for granted.

So, I am speaking for the Fellas today. We get this sometimes Fellas, and it gets rough, but hey, it's Women. I feel there are 2 types of Women when it comes to thinking that every Man has to work with. There is that one woman that no matter what you DO, her mind is racing. You go to the Bathroom and she is wondering what you are in doing in that Bathroom! You go to the store and take too long, she is wondering what took you so long. My Friends, that is the Overthinking Woman, and her thoughts can get WAY more extreme than that at times. Then there is the OTHER type of Woman. You let her know something once, twice, maybe even 3 times, and she does the total opposite. You tell her, "Babe, you gotta take your time and think about things before you do them." OH NO! Not her! She is going to do what she wants, when she wants, and look cute at doing it, whether is right or wrong, good or bad! My friends this is a Woman who does not think ENOUGH! Each Man seems to have their preference and which type of Woman they can deal with. So at the end of the day Fellas, which one would you rather have?

I believe both Women, if they truly care about a Man, really mean well at the end of the day. Let me tell you all something...WOMEN BE THINKING...A LOT! And as a Man, the ONE THING you never want to happen, is 2 or More Women getting together and thinking about YOU & what they're going to do TO YOU!  Especially if you have MESSED UP?!? NO BUDDY! You don't want those problems! Honestly though, neither type of Woman is all that bad. You could have an Overthinking Woman who thinks about things & what you're doing so much, all she thinks, worries, and cares about is you like that because she loves you. It can end up being annoying at times, but she is the type of Woman that you DO NOT want her to stop Overthinking about you. If she DOES, that means her thoughts have gone somewhere else and just might be ON someone else. Then there is the Woman that doesn't think enough. She could be that Pretty, Dipsy Chick that just doesn't have much Common Sense. But that's where you as a Man come in and step up and show her the way to some things. Now, you may have to have A LOT OF PATIENCE dealing with this type of Woman, but if she does take the time of not thinking much to think about you, then my guy you have yourself a Good Woman there. It's all about what you can deal with as a Man. Now, some Women might say "Well, I'm not an Overthinker and I do think enough Professor JT." And what I would say to that Woman is, "Yeah, I just don't believe you..." LOL! I believe a Woman is one or the other. Not a Bad Thing, just know which one you are Ladies and Fellas, know which type of Woman you can deal with!

The College Life: From College Kid To College Professor! Encouragement For College Students And Grads


Good Morning Everyone! It's the FIRST DAY OF CLASSES at my college, Ivy Tech Community College in Indiana and I am BACK in the classroom starting on Tuesday! I'll be back teaching my FOCUS Intro to College Course for Black Males for a 3rd consecutive Fall Semester and for ME, this is the most Wonderful Time of the Year. I pray that all is well with everyone as we are looking at the END OF AUGUST! Can you BELIEVE IT!?!? Labor Day is this weekend! I hope you have some amazing plans as some how, some way, I need to get up OUT OF HERE for a minute! VACATION NEEDED SO BAD! God bless everyone on this amazing Monday! Know that GOD is still in the Blessing Business FOR YOU!

You may not believe it if I told you, but when I was in Grade School, I was a bit of a Class Clown. Yeah, I was the kid always missing recess and getting in trouble with the teacher. Then in High School, all I cared about was trying to play Football. I graduated High School with a 2.2 GPA. No where NEAR what a College Student needed to have to even get into a college, but someone at Indiana State University, who I STILL want to find and give the biggest hug and kiss too, said, "Lets give this kid A CHANCE!" Busted my behind to a 3.04 GPA Bachelors Degree and 3.45 GPA Masters Degree. Now pursing to start a Doctorate Program in Fall of 2015. GOD HAS BEEN GOOD TO ME FAMILY! A Son of a Drug Addict Father and of a Mother who passed away on me at the age of 14 years old, life didn't give me much of a chance to succeed. I found out that even my own Grandmother didn't even think I was going to make it passed my first semester of college, but I came out smokin with a 3.3 GPA. Now I teach and advise College Student in my own hometown of Indianapolis for a living. I could have given up, thrown excuses out and they would have been pretty much justified if I didn't succeed. I just knew once I got to Indiana State University, I had an OPPORTUNITY! It was given to me and I didn't want to waste it. Honestly, I didn't want to go back to Indianapolis and live with my Grandmother! LORD NO! That's probably a reason why I stayed in small town Terre Haute, IN for 7 years and pulled Bachelors and Masters degrees. I wanted a way OUT of Indianapolis and being successful in college was my Ultimate Ticket.


I want people to realize how great of an opportunity it is to even be at college. I see it all the time, too many people taking college for granted and missing out on getting a degree that will open up many doors for them. College is not a way to just get FREE MONEY! The Government is really cutting down on College Ballers, people who are just in college to get checks. Then it's people getting into KILLER DEBT on degrees that they are not even using. IT HAPPENS! I just don't like when I hear people downplay college. Just because it didn't work for YOU, doesn't mean it's not working for someone else. People coming out with great degrees, but 100,000 worth of debt for those degrees. Not saying things couldn't have been planned better, but degrees cost money depending where you want to get them from. Parents of young kids, I'd advise you, SERIOUSLY, start to put SOMETHING away for your kids for college. What is $25 every check that you get? IT'S NOTHING! That could be HUGE over time once your child starts to go to college. The cost of college isn't going down, it's going UP...WAY UP! Don't be afraid to start your kids in a Community College to save money on General Education Classes or get them to take some AP Course that will transfer to colleges from High School. Finally, if you don't have a degree or want to go back and get another degree...DO IT! There are many options of schools and there is SO MUCH FREE MONEY out there for people to go back to school. Don't waste any college opportunity that you get! Plan! Plan! Plan! Take the time to research colleges and cost. Also, check with your job to see if they have tuition reimbursement opportunities for you that will pay for your college degree. You have heard it hear from PROFESSOR JT! Make College Work For You Today! READ...SHARE...LOVE! PROFESSOR JT

A GREAT FRIDAY MESSAGE: BE HAPPY WITH YOU AND THANK GOD FOR HOW GREAT HE MADE YOU!


Good Morning Everyone! It's Friday! Where are these weeks GOING?!?! Can you believe we're about to wrap up this year? GOOD GOD ALMIGHTY! I pray that all is going well for everyone as the year starts to come to an end. God still have time to bring you a blessing and a miracle! BE ENCOURAGED! 
LOVE GOD AND LOVE WHO YOU ARE! 

In life, there are going to be a lot of people who honestly just do not like you. You can't even put a finger on it, but they just don't like who you are. I remember listening to a message by Joel Osteen and he said "25% of people will love you, 50% will like you, and 25% of people won't even like you at all." You really wonder? "How would someone not like me? You can be the nicest person in the World and people won't like you. It's crazy, but honestly, that's just how life is. The thing we need to come to an understanding of as a people is that if no one truly does like you, be happy with yourself. Always know at the end of the day, if no one else likes or loves you, God always loves you!

Psalms 139:14 says "I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made." God made us all to be great! He made us all to be special. Sometimes we spend most of our lives complaining about who we are and trying to keep up with the Joneses. We try to look like others, act like others, be like others, when at the end of the day, we're not even happy with who we're trying to become. We're just trying to do it so we can get attention or fit in. I'll be honest with you, it took me some YEARS to actually be happy with myself. But when I finally did become happy with who I was, I was happy with not only the fact who I was, but that I started to get real people around me who was happy with who I was as well. If a person wasn't happy with who I was, they LEFT! It hurts because you never like to see people leave, but I knew the people who truly loved me for who I was, were there around me. We have to realize, not everyone is going to like or love us, but just be thankful for the ones around us who do. You may realize it's a VERY small number of people, but feel blessed for them. And it's even more of a blessing when someone loves and likes you and not just for your status, fame, wealth, or what you can do for them. BUT, that's another blog, for another day! Love God, love yourself, and love the people who love you! God bless everyone on today! Know that you are GREAT and God has made you very, very special! READ...SHARE...LOVE! - PROFESSOR JT

A Crazy Woman! A Sensitive Man! Do We All Have Things We Need To Avoid In Dating?


Good Morning Everyone! It's a Terrific Tuesday and I'm glad about it! We're in the FULL SWING of registration at my college and it's keeping me MAD BUSY! I love it! Too me, THIS is the most wonderful time of the year! Prayers out to all involved in the protest and madness still that is in Ferguson, MO! Bless all the people out there and may PEACE be brought to that area soon in Jesus Name! God bless everyone on today and know that GOD has something great in store for you REAL SOON!

As we date, we start to realize we seem to attract ourselves and the same type of people over and over again. I was talking with a friend of mine last week who told me that every Woman has some crazy in her. It just takes the right situation and sometimes the wrong Man to pull it out. How is it though that it seems like sometimes, some Women get in the same situation again and again the it's just a different male face that keeps pulling out the same crazy in them? Or what about Women. Women who say they want a Strong Man, but end up with some crying, whiny Dude who is more emotional and sensitive than she is. How do we keep saying we want THIS in relationships, but we end up with the same mess?

There is to me a Spiritual Side to relationships that sometimes we don't acknowledge and see. That's why sometimes we like someone and can't really put our finger on it, we just know we're attracted to them. We don't even really like all of how they look on the outside, but something draws us too them. How many times have we been with someone and everyone KNOWS they're not your type and even ask "What made you end up with THEM?" You truly think about it and say "I don't even know, we just CLICKED!" Now, clicking with someone is great, but a lot of times, we're not necessarily clicking to the right stuff! Some of us Men are attracted to the Crazy Chick! Some of the Women are attracted to the Sensitive Guy! We know we don't want that in relationships from our past ones, but we always seem to get in relationships with the same type of crazy, sensitive people. We literally will put away the person we know deep down that we want and need because we can't get off of this attraction for a person we can't control who we know isn't good for us. We have to be very careful, because even if we make this type of person we don't really like or need a parent of one of our children, they go from getting on our nerves to we just can't stand them period! We need to take more time as well with people when we're dating because if we know the type of person we're attracting, before we jump in the sheets with them, we need to make sure we're not making the same mistake. Be careful folks! Cuffing Season is on the way and we don't want to get caught up with the wrong people who will set us back emotionally and possibly even financially 3-4-5 years!

One Week After Mike Brown's Murder, What Have We Learned About Ourselves As Americans?


Good Morning Everyone! Another week is upon us and if nothing else, THANK GOD YOU'RE HERE TO SEE IT! Life get rough, things get rough, but God found you special enough to say "I'm giving you GRACE to see another day!" God bless everyone on today and know that no day is promised to you, make every single day GREAT in your life!

6 bullets... 6 bullets Dr. Micheal Baden said went in and out of Mike Brown on the day of his murder. In the last week we have seen the good and the bad of this case and it's a look at how America I feel truly is. You ever heard the saying "When a person is in trouble or scared, you truly see who they really are." That's what we're getting from the City of Ferguson, MO, the Ferguson Police Dept and their Chief Johnson, Black Leaders, and people that are Americans. Everyone has some sort of opinion in this situation. There are people standing for Mike Brown, shoot, there are even people standing for the Officer Darren Wilson, who was said to be the officer who put those 6 bullets into Michael Brown on Saturday, August 9th, 2014.


So what have we learned about ourselves as a people from this whole Michael Brown Situation. Here are some of the things I have viewed that bring so much light to who we really are as Americans:

1. America Is STILL As Racist As Ever.


2. Police Departments Will Do Any and Everything To Protect Their Own.

3. Some People See Tragedy As An Opportunity To Be Even More FAMOUS.

Embedded image permalink



4. How does the DEATH of people become a Fund Raising Opportunity for People?


5. The Press Only Cares About The News, Not The People.


6. Black Men Of All Kinds Are Still Seen As A Threat To Society.


I'm not going to go into detail about each of these points, but as a viewer from a far of this situation, it's sad that even I can see that we have not come very far as we think as a Free Country. Every time something like this happens, we as Americans revert 40-50-60 years back in time, into the days of Salem, The March on Washington, and the Civil Rights Days. Haven't we fought hard enough as a people to know that we can do better than what we're doing? We're not helping any situation or bringing any closure to Mike Brown's Death by fighting each other. What kind of Police Dept put up a video of a young black man who they say was robbing a store, but doesn't bring justice to his killing? We as Americans have to do better! We have to want better for our families, communities, children, and future.

A Great Friday Message: Prayers Out To Ferguson, MO And Mike Brown's Family! What Do We Do About It?

Embedded image permalink

Good Morning Everyone! It's another Friday and another great day to celebrate GOD and the World that we live in. We're BLESSED! We know deep down that NONE of us are suppose to be here. But it's by the Grace of God that we can get up and see another day! God bless everyone on today. Know that tomorrow is not promised, make today amazing!


The #NMOS14 Movements took place all over the country on Thursday, August 14th as a Nation stood up for the wrongful Police killing of Mike Brown in Ferguson, MO. The City of Ferguson has been the topic of discussion as all eyes have been on this small city as they have taken to the streets in silent protest against this horrible killing. Sadly, haven't we seen this before? The REAL question is, when are we going to get tired with seeing this PERIOD? When are all the killings go to stop? With all the movements that did happen from city to city, what is going to happen that's going to change & prevent Minorities killings from happening in the Future?


James 2:26 says "faith without works is dead." We did an amazing job as a nation standing up for these wrongful deaths, but what are we now going to do about it? What are you doing everyday to help Black Males and other minorities in your communities to do and be better? Is this is END or are we still just treading water until the next unarmed minority is killed? This is AMERICA! This is suppose to be "The Land of the Free & Home of the Brave!" But ask yourself today, "Do I feel FREE?" As a Black Man, educated, nerdy looking as I am and all, I still am a THREAT in my own so-called FREE COUNTRY! When is this mess going to STOP? We need to continue praying and continue in helping our minorities and whites understand that we're ALL AMERICANS! If we don't work together, we don't have a nation! Lets stand up for what is right and stand up for each other every single day! What are WE going to do different TODAY & for our FUTURES TOMORROW? God Bless all the families who have lost a family member through senseless violence. God Bless the World and the United States of America!  READ...SHARE...LOVE! - PROFESSOR JT

From Robin Williams Suicide To Mike Brown's Police Shooting Death, Is The World Getting WORSE?


Good Morning! A Wonderful Wednesday for me, as I hope so many others are having a great day as well! God bless everyone and know that your dreams are RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU! Go for them! Don't let anyone stop you from being as Great as God wants you to be! Have a Wonderful Wednesday Everyone!

I wanted to send a SPECIAL SHOUTOUT to Huff Post Live as they celebrate their special 2nd birthday today! As you see on the right side of my blog, I have been a special guest several times on Huff Post Live and I have met some of the most amazing people through their online news website! I have even met some of my mentors in Education like Dr Marc Lamont Hill and Dr Boyce Watkins, who I was on a segment with both of them at the same time! One of the greatest moments of my life! If you have NEVER seen Huff Post Live, CHECK IT OUT! You'll learn about every thing going on in the World and get to contribute some great information right along with the GUEST! 
Check it out today at live.huffingtonpost.com


Sadly, it's been a rough few days in America as we have been dealing with two frustrating deaths. Robin Williams, a long time legendary comedian passed away on Monday from an apparent suicide. Also, on this past weekend in Ferguson, MO, a Suburb right outside of St. Louis, an unarmed young man, Mike Brown, was apparently shot and killed by a Ferguson Police Officer, who has yet to be named. The shooting has caused many protest to arise in the City of Ferguson, as we have sad memories of Trayvon Martin and Jordan Davis. A lot of people do not know, that Robin Williams recently was in a Drug Rehab center. The pressure of entertainment has taken many lives prematurely through suicide and drug usage like Don Cornelius. As we look at both of these situations, it's not only the fact that it's sad they have happened, but are we starting to get USE to them happening? As we look at situations as police and race violence and Entertainers taking their own lives and not getting help to keep them on earth longer, are we as people getting immune to situations like these happening over and over again?


I can understand that these things are a part of life, but police and racist shootings and suicides should NEVER feel like a part of normal life. How many of us see have seen an entertainer take their own life or die of drug use or see a black male get killed and just say to themselves "Here we go again!" Maybe we shouldn't look at these situations in the same vain, but then again, maybe we should! Maybe we should be looking at the World and saying "What more can be done?" Ask yourself today, when you look at the World, is enough being DONE to prevent these incidents from happening? Are there enough Sensitivity and Help Classes and Opportunities out there for people to learn and get help for issues they are having with drugs, themselves, and how to handle other people and issues around them? What more can be done by people of the World to make sure these incidents STOP HAPPENING? I'm pretty sure that their is another Entertainer or Athlete on Drugs or is having problems that needs help. I'm sure there are people who have bias feelings about minorities that need to be changed before they are confronted by one and take their bias opinions and actions out on an innocent bystander. All I'm saying is today that we need to really look at these two situations and say "ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!" There are people who need some REAL HELP out here, and if we don't take more action to simply even ask people "How do you feel about others?" and "Are you doing ok?" in a genuine fashion, then my friends, we might be just seeing the tip of the iceberg in some of the worse incidents possible just may be on the way. And sadly, it's A REALLY BIG ICEBERG!

Does Being A "GOOD GUY" Make You A "BAD CATCH" For Women?


Good Morning Everyone! Can you believe we're already almost at Mid-August? GOODNESS! Where is 2014 going? Well, the sun is shining, birds are chirping, GOD IS GOOD ALL THE TIME! God bless everyone on today and know that you are BLESSED in all that you do! WORK HARD...PLAY HARD! ENJOY LIFE!

"You deserve a Good Woman John..." "You deserve a better Woman than me..." "I hope someone finds you and appreciates the Good Man that you are one day." These have been the Classic Lines of Woman after Woman that I have pursued in dating during 2014. It wouldn't be so bad to hear these lines if I didn't keep hearing them over and over again. I remember being in college and a young lady who liked me a lot, but said she was scared to talk to me because I always walked with my head up and had my stuff together. The crazy thing is, I continuously hear these things from so many different Women. WHY I WONDER?!?! You would THINK Women would want a Man who has their stuff together, but in 2014, a lot of times they can't handle it! It's one of those intimidating things that if a Man is coming to the table with his "stuff" together, some Women don't feel they have "room" to make that Man great, because he is great already. OR, since they don't have their "stuff" together quite at the same level as that Man, they wonder does that Man TRULY want them or not. It gets so frustrating because you really sit back and wonder, "Do Women want a together man or a project that they can put together as a Man?" 

My Grandmother use to tell me, "Boy, get your degree, get a job, get a home, get you a wife!" I did all those things and it's just a fact that Woman aren't ready for a well, put together Man. They want the "I helped him make it story..." What happened to the "Michelle Obama", "Oprah Winfrey" type Women who have their stuff together too? So when a guy comes along, he better have his stuff together, because they have their stuff together. There are a lot of "Make Him Great" Women out there who are already great, struggling with Mr Broke Man. While, on the other side of town, Mr Good Guy is chillin, single, because he's praying one of these Woman stop messing with Broke Dudes before she ends up broke with him. LOL! I'm just letting off some steam today. I have so many of my guy friends who we have nice places, cars, great jobs, and all of us are dating or single, none in a marriage because Women just don't know how to handle having a well, put together Man. We're not in the position to saving Women who are Opportunist, just looking at our greatness God has given us for a come up, so we have to watch out for all of that too. Can we just come to the table with a Woman who is working as hard as us and has a great life like we have? That's all we're asking for. We'll see what happens. Still time left in 2014 as Cuffing Season is upon us! Get Ready For A LONG WINTER!

Was The NFL's Punishment TOO SOFT with Ray Rice And His Domestic Violence Situation?


Good Morning Everyone! I pray everyone is having a wonderful and productive week so far. Keep going for those dreams! Know that tomorrow is not promised. Ask yourself..."Am I doing everything I can to make today GREAT?" If not...TURN UP! Make every day special and know it's a blessing in Jesus Name to be alive! God bless everyone on today and know that what God has for you...IS FOR YOU!

Baltimore Ravens Running Back Ray Rice was suspended by the NFL for 2 games for his domestic violence situation with his wife earlier this 2014 year. Pictures from a hotel camera surfaced showing Ray Rice dragging his unconscious Fiancee, at the time, out of the elevator after a fighting/arguing incident between them. You're talking about an NFL player who runs through linemen and linebackers as his job, striking a women until she is unconscious, and he was only suspended by the NFL 2 games. Ray Rice is going through ordered classes in conjunction with the 2 game suspension, but lets be honest here, is this enough of a punishment for a domestic violence incident?

What are we showing young people, women and men alike, when it comes in terms of domestic violence? That you can strike a woman, as a man, and get dang near just a slap on the wrist and a "don't do it again sir!" First off, let me say this, no man period, should EVER be putting his hands on a woman! It doesn't matter what that woman does, says, whatever, a Man should be Man enough to know that the greatest creation given to Man ever is the Woman and we should know how to treat them as a blessing. The fact that the two went and got married afterwards was a little shocking, but these are grown people, what they do is there business. But how much light was shined on domestic violence as a whole in the World today? How many times do things like this happen with couples and we never hear about it or see it on camera? How many Women and Men are hiding the fact that they are getting abused day in and day out and not telling anyone? 

This situation with Ray Rice brings a lot of things to the forefront yes, but also brings up a lot more questions. Could and should the NFL do MORE on this matter? Not just with Ray Rice's situation, but with Domestic Violence as a whole involving it's athletes? Ray Rice isn't the first NFL player to strike a Woman, and I'm sad to say, he probably won't be the last either. But what can truly be done to prevent more incidents like this from happening? I feel that the NFL has an opportunity to do something great to help society, but they in a way to me dropped the ball on this matter. All the suspensions handed out by the NFL from dog fighting Micheal Vick, to player after player getting positive performance enhancement drug test. They all get way more suspended games than just 2 of them. We're talking about a Man putting his hands on a WOMAN...2 game suspension! That's not enough! I feel more should have been done and still could be done! We'll see how NFL fans treat Ray Rice in the coming months because we all saw how they did and are still treating Michael Vick! Lets protect our Women better and lets take this Ray Rice situation as a wake up call that we all need to do so much better! READ...SHARE...LOVE! - PROFESSOR JT
