Jamie Foxx, a famed R&B singer, actor, and songwriter has a popular song climbing the popular music charts called "Blame it On the Alcohol."

In the scenario of domestic violence, more often than not alcohol is a major factor in the breakdown of a man or woman’s inhibition when it comes to showing violent behavior that can be potentially harmful as well. Many a woman as witnessed on television and movies have said that the violent behavior was the result of the abuse of alcohol. Jamie Foxx lyrics ring true in most of these cases. Organizations concerned with this kind of behavior against women should look into letting it be known that the abuse of alcohol is a valid cause of abusive behavior.

These women are saying that everything is fine Monday through Thursday but when the weekend comes she can’t seem to do anything right and her reward is an unrestrained fit of violence to her person. Calling the police is futile as now there is rampant abuse of the emergency phone line and help is no longer a 911 call away. Instead the woman or person who is being subjected to the physical abuse has to fend for themselves by walking away and closing the door careful not to provoke because he can blame it on the alcohol, as Jamie Foxx sings. The person being abused has no where to turn except the knob on the door as the noise continues outside content that there is safety inside and away from the abuser..

It would seem logical that if these abusive situations is “blamed on the alcohol ” that the person abusing the drug would get through a weekend without it to keep peace in the home. The presence of children present it would seem mandates that alcohol should not be abused. But each weekend, it seemed that a trip to the liquor store and then a trip to a woman’s person is the order of the weekend because once the air clears everything wrong can be blamed on the alcohol.
