Chris Brown Thinks His Anger-Management Class Was 'Sexist'

(Radio.com) If you thought you had a firm opinion on Chris Brown and his music, wait until you see what he said to say to The Guardian. In a revealing interview with the UK paper, Brown lamented his reputation as a "mad black guy, this angry, young, troubled kid," his probation, community-service and anger management-class after pleading guilty to felony assault of his now ex-girlfriend Rihanna.

He said he believes his sentence has been excessive and his court-ordered anger management class discriminatory. "I think the actual [anger management] class I went to was a little bit sexist," he said. "It was beneficial because it made me cater more to a woman's thoughts and a woman's needs, and how to handle situations. But the class itself, no disrespect to the class, but the class itself only tells you you're wrong, you're wrong, you're wrong."

While Brown says he's learned to control his anger, he suggested there's still an undertone of racial discrimination to his punishment. "They want me to be the example," he said. "Young black kids don't have the fairer chances. You can see Lindsay Lohan in and out of court every day, you see Charlie Sheen, whoever else, do what they want to do."

In 2009, Brown was sentenced to community service and five years probation for his assault on Rihanna. He complains about his punishment further in the Guardian interview. "Community service, that s**t is a b***h," he said. "I'll be honest and you can quote me on that that is a motherf**ker there. For me, I think it's more of a power trip for the DA [district attorney]." more on this story
