Had an argument today with a guy at work who thinks the hate Chris Brown got was mostly racially motivated. I said no it's because he's a **** who beat up his girlfriend, is completelty unrepentant and made millions of dollars off it.
He thinks white people who commit similar crimes like Paul Gascoigne and John Lennon get away lightly and are largely revered to this day. I said it's because Brown had pictures of exactly what he did splashed all over the internet and thus it sticking in people's minds over what an enormous **** he really is.
Anyways, what say you guys?
edit: thanks ****
