(The 1st picture is a burning heart on fire. The 2nd picture is the apartment Tiffany Lawson & her live-in domestic violence abusing boyfriend Kevin Ford Jr. shared on the day of the horrific incident. The 3rd picture is of Tiffany Lawson's burning smoldering clothes she frantically threw off her burning body before the EMT Unit arrived. The final picture is of Kevin Ford Jr. Tiffany's "man" & father of her baby entering a Cleveland Area Police vehicle under arrest, & apparently thinking that the shit he did is funny.)
In this, the fifth & final installment in our series: DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AGAINST BLACK WOMEN.
I thought it appropriate that I'd bring to you a story straight out the headlines from our own black community right up north from us in Cleveland, Ohio. This story is called : MISSION TO KILL ~ MAN SETS WOMAN ON FIRE
The story you will read and the video you will see is beyond shocking! But this IS what's going on in our black communities every other day of the week behind closed doors and sometimes not so closed doors.
Domestic violence is a very serious matter in our community, as those of you who have so faithfully followed our series from the beginning know by now. Today, we are putting a face on the black man domestic violence negro abuser, his victim the black woman, and sadly their innocent child together. This bullshit has got to stop! But it NEVER will as long as the black negro man of African descent continues to blame everybody under the sun, moon, and stars (including his victim) for HIS fucked up-isms, faults, drunkenness, uncontrollable rages, insecurities, and bullshit!
Yes brothers & sisters it is a sad sad day when a person can not and/or is unwilling to take responsibility for his or her own actions as an adult. When the black woman is wrong, she is wrong but she is not 9 out of 10 chances gonna come home and start beating the shit out of her black man.
However, when the black man is wrong, 9 out of 10 chances he refuses to even admit it. No! He has to find someone else to blame and scapegoat! And when the black man has an internal problem with himself due to whatever reason (cause for real it really doesn't even matter when he puts our physical well-being & safety in peril & in jeopardy) he comes home and commences to beating the shit out of his black woman! And for real, that black woman 9 out of 10 chances is ALL his black ass has got! She's in his corner: right, wrong or indifferent most times ... But even that is NEVER enough for the black man!
Brothers, I love you. I do. But when you are dead wrong you are just dead wrong! ~ PERIOD!

A mob from an Ohio Neighborhood was looking for Kevin Ford Jr. After he poured lighter fluid on his 31-year-old girlfriend Tiffany Lawson while she held their 18 month old son in her arms. Tiffany managed to throw her son out of a window right before her boyfriend set her on fire. .. Kevin immediately fled the scene. Lucky
Drenched in the flammable liquid Tiffany raced to an open second floor
Lawson managed to rip off her burning clothing and jumped out of the window of her home in Cleveland, Ohio. She broke her elbow and arm in the fall and suffered 1st degree burns to her arms and legs.
The toddler, Kevin Ford III, was uninjured. Both mother and son were taken to the Metro
According to Chief Executive Officer Angel Morales of the CMHA Police Department the pair had been arguing over Tiffany’s refusal to give Kevin rent money
When Kevin was arrested police say he reeked of lighter fluid. He was around the corner visiting a friend, chopping it up like nothing ever happened. His defense for the crime?? He says he lost his temper…
Ladies, this is a definite reason not to deal with a man who makes you pay rent. He might set you on fire if you come up short...
