    Stuff spreads fast but also burn out fast. This r kelley thing is going to have to get big enough to reach a certain point or it is going ot disappear again when people get bored. It will have to reach the police, they will actually have to care, some of the victims are going ot have to talk, and only then will it have a lasting effect (maybe) as the police don't get "bored."
    Race will play a role if this does not die down. Not to beat a dead horse, but the women are black, so some amount of victim blaming will always take place. Black men have longed been stereotyped as sexual predators/deviants. Kelly will never shake that stigma. Until now, most people just made jokes about R. Kelly. Now, everyone is aware of just how serious this is. It mostly depends on if the general population, aka white folks, will care enough to want to see him burn. R. Kelly is not on the level of Cosby.

    I do believe R. Kelly has a decent chance to survive this. With people gearing up for the next presidential election, daily Trump drama, the economy, and other events (funny how all that ties into Trump), Kelly might be able to creep back into the closet with no threats to his liberty.

    my mind flips on this constantly.

    I am currently in the "he's a weirdo but not a pedo" category but it isn't solid lol.

    But... dudes dead. Not sure what the point of this is.

    I actually wonder if this R. Kelly stuff will pour into comics.

    As much as people talk about Kitty Pryde's love life, not much stigma has followed her various male suitors. However, the Pym-slap has followed Hank Pym for decades.

    I am sure DC will continue the bury the Hal Jordan/Arisia relationship.

    But I keep looking at Slade Wilson, and the never-ending attempts by DC to elevate his character despite him being a true Chester the Child Molester.

    Too bad Wolfman didn't know that. He honestly thought Slade was, at worst, a tragic anti hero. If you watch a DVD extra on the Teen Titans: Judas Contract movie, he clearly saw Slade as the victim not Terra.

    I hope it doesn't for the simple fact that superhero comics in general suck at dealing with sex crimes and the fallout. See Identity Crisis, Devin Grayson's Nightwing, Wolfman's Titans, Morrison's X-Men, Morrison's Batman etc.

    To me, Slade is as much a pariah as Arthur Light.

    Now, I have "bump & grind" in my head.






    I can't shake this image of a live action film starring Slade & Light....directed by Zack Snyder.....with the soundtrack provided by....you guessed it....R. Kelly!

    It's strange, back when this came out, I like a lot of people wasn't even 18 at the time. I guess when you are young like that you assume adults would somehow have vetted this whole thing. Instead it was just the first speed bump.

    I guess Rob had a birthday celebration in the Chi yesterday and it wasn't short on attendees.
    Beefing up the old home security, huh?
    You bet yer ass.

    I was 13, and I remember my parents just liked the song. But once news about how old Aaliyah was hit and her being married to R. Kelly, I vividly remember my dad chucking this album and 12 Play in the trash.

    He was furious.
