NewsOne Now Audio Podcast: Do We Take Domestic Violence Seriously?


Roland Martin and the “NewsOne Now” Straight Talk panel (Jarvis StewartChristy Winters-Scott and Mike Muse) discuss the Ray Rice domestic violence incident. Until the video of Ray Rice hitting his them-fiancé in the face surfaced, many did not take the domestic violence incident seriously. Now that the video is being circulated in the media, a new level of outrage has sprung up.

Did we have to see the footage to know what happened and to become even more upset about this incident? Does society take violence against African American women seriously?

Dr. Howard Fuller, author of “No Struggle No Progress: A Warrior’s Life from Black Power to Education Reform,” joined Roland Martin on “NewsOne Now” to discuss school choice, education reform and how to ensure that our children receive the best education.  

Deborah Owens joined Roland Martin on “NewsOne Now” to explain how to use your smartphone to be smart about your money. Check Owens’ list of mobile apps (in the gallery above) that can help you build wealth and listen to their entire conversation for all of her financial tips from this week’s installment of WealthyU.
