R&B singer not right; column can’t excuse crime

I was writing in response to a column written by a Donathan Prater. Personally, his column disgusted me! Throughout the entire column he was trying to justify R. Kelly’s actions. There is no excuse whatsoever. You can analyze the situation from any standpoint and he still committed a stupid and terrible crime. R. Kelly can make all these inspirational songs, but after the show is over he continues to bring questions about himself to the forefront. There is no justifying a wrong no matter how blessed black women are in their anatomy.
