I lately have been noticing advertisement for a new radio station 97.1 FM an RB radio station. I noticed Rhima on the billboard after the beating she experience in several months ago. She was the center of public scandal. I really feel like entertainment leaders are making sure the abusive relationship does not get out of control. So they are putting in the media and hoping to intervene on domestic violence.
I wonder about the other black female role models who were in abusive relationship. I wonder if the entertainment world new about the abuse and kept it quiet to the public.
A lot of black women were extremely disappointed when Juanita Bynum was in an abusive relationship. They felt like they were deceive. Now, Rhima scandal has been on the front page of People magazine and has been in the broad cast news. Why for a change? Leaders are influencing what is cover to a great degree.
Back to the ad. The radio advertisement has made a major different. People respond to the billboards. I recall when I was in high school when my friends were aware of the billboards and advertisement. I found myself going to concert in the park and listening to new radio station because my friends brought to my attention what was going on through advertisement. They were more aware of advertisement than i was. I was is self pity. I was stuck in the past.
