Review of Surviving R. Kelly

60 minutes

Celebrated as one of the greatest R&B singers of all time, R. Kelly's genre defining career and playboy lifestyle has been riddled with rumors of abuse, predatory behavior, and pedophilia. Despite damning evidence and multiple witnesses, to date, none of these accusations have seemingly affected him. For the first time ever, survivors and people from R. Kelly's inner circle, are coming forward with new allegations about his sexual, mental, and physical abuse.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

Most people know men who prey on women. Think about yourself in high school... there was at least one guy who was the supposed "stud" yet all the girls who were with him were "sluts" even if they were virgins before they met him. Think about the guy in college or the guy at work who still take advantage of women. But R. Kelly never stopped preying on young high school girls even as he became an adult. His own experience with being sexually abused as a child does not excuse him for this. The only reason, and I mean the ONLY reason why this man has gotten away with it, even in this age of #metoo when a 6 hour documentary should NOT be necessary after Weinstein, Cosby, Spacey, etc., is simply because these victims were black women. That is the only difference. R. Kelly abused dozens and dozens of black women, and that was unfortunately and is still less important. These black women, who were just girls at the time, minors, have to make a documentary because #metoo isn't enough for black girls. Now if you think I'm wrong, ask yourself if R.Kelly would have gotten off if he statutorily raped white girls. Ask yourself if R. Kelly would have gotten off for child pornography if the video was of him and a white little girl that he peed on and had sex with.
