Lessons Learned?

Have those of us watching on the sidelines — not to mention Rihanna or Chris Brown — learned anything from this very public case of domestic blues?

Word is Rihanna is thinking of taking Chris Brown back, despite those all-too-revealing photos of her battered face. Brown, meanwhile, has made it clear that his remorse goes only so far because of his claims that there’s more to this story.

The bigger question may be what did we as a society learn from this nationally publicized mess?

Is Chris Brown a man-child trying to play adult games? Has he picked up battering habits that may define him for years to come? Or did Rihanna get in a few licks of her own, and did she let jealousy take control?

We may never know the whole story, but we do need to think about our own attitudes — and actions. EbonyJet.com gives a different take.
