Per Ms. Haithcoat, "America loves a comeback and loves to forgive."
Then explain the disparity between the public perceptions of Michael Vick and Chris Brown. One of those dudes went to jail, paid his debt, and continues to appear genuinely contrite for his actions; the other received what might charitably be called a slap on the wrist and has taken every available opportunity to flaunt it in public. Not to mention the army of women willing to leap to his defense at a moment's notice.
It speaks to the pervasiveness of misogyny in America that beating the shit out of a woman—even a beloved female celebrity—is eminently more "forgivable" than killing a few animals. I'm sure the fact that said celebrity is a woman of color plays no small part in it.

Stop trying to shame me into calling. I'll do it when I get around to it, and all my questions/comments are going to be about Curren$y.

It DOES frequently offend my feminist sensibilities but hosts jeff & nocando generally talk themselves away from the offensiveness. Such is the nature of hip-hop, so it works out. Overall, i'm a fan and will keep listening.
