Mary Mitchell isn't happy about it, but she writes that a lot of black women support Kelly:
When I talked about the upcoming R. Kelly trial during a recent segment of "Chicago Speaks," a radio program I co-host on Sunday mornings, several black women defended Kelly and blamed the alleged victim, pointing out that today's 14-year-old girls are developed physically.I'm sure Kelly would like some of these callers on his jury!
Personally, I find this case has a high "ick" factor. But I do wonder whether the callers had a point.
Some say it's best if you design
every law with a clear bright line.
But whether one is "old enough"
ventures into murky stuff.
