VIOLENCE: Rosa Clemente Responds to Rick Ross' "rape lyric" > NewBlackMan (in Exile)

Peace everyone I want to thank your thoughts, your support of women, your humanity. For the very few that seem to just be nasty, mean, violent, I only wish that your heart will open. As for me I will fight on to stop this, and if anyone reading wants to do something more, please email me at For those who hide behind a computer spewing hate, I suggest you let me/us be. At the end of the day I am a Bronx born Puerto Rican woman, and I will push back. Peace.
