Duke Players: Accused of being white and rich

I wonder if ever before an entire people has surrendered its history, power, and even common sense to the rabble in quite the same way that white people in the United States have. In the name of equality, white people have made themselves unequal. In the name of justice, white people have surrendered it for themselves.

And the Duke guys are obviously guilty of being white and rich.

It's not good, but I don't think it's as bad as it was, say, ten years ago. Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson would have already started riots in every major urban center in the country, with plenty of looting and burning police cars, had this happened recently.

If you want to see examples of wholesale surrender of culture, check out Sweden, Denmark and the Netherlands. Although one of the reasons you can point to them is their size. America is huge, and there are pockets everywhere of folks who are going to have to have their distinct American culture pried from their cold, dead fingers.

In this particular case, this group of young men did something very stupid at the outset, which was hire a stripper to come "entertain" them. In the computer world, this would be like asking virus-creaters to send you e-mail attachments to click on because you love those little things. Even if they are all completely innocent, they--by prurient choice--put themselves into a situation where they gave one woman, a stripper--who are, generally, notoriously dysfunctional, self-absorbed, irrational, and drug-addicted--all the power over them. And, frankly, they created the sort of situation where mob-thought has been known to rule, irrespective of the race of the "victim" (and this is true: if something did happen, which I tend to doubt, it happened because a bunch of randy young men hired a stripper to come to their house, not because she was black and all but one of the folks were white).

You know that only one member of the team didn't have to give a DNA sample? That is, the black guy? I mean, I don't want to be racist here, but the statistics on rape suggest the black guy shouldn't be left out. Something like 90% of black women who are raped and report it finger a black male perpetrator. And he's the only one who is presumed innocent? Okee-dokee.

While we unfortunately don't know how the young men are explaining what happened, I suspect they either didn't find her attractive and didn't want to pay, or didn't want to pay enough, or something like that, and she got pissed and the whole thing has gone out of control.

One other thing--chances are, even if she was raped in this case, it almost certainly wasn't her first time. Most strippers have been raped prior to becoming strippers and often get raped while being strippers, usually by "boyfriends" or "managers".

This just might have been the first time she thought she could extort some money out of some rich white boys. Just thinking.

Kevin, I did NOT know that the black member of the team didn't have to give a sample. Probably because she said the attacker was white. But, you know, I wouldn't think it impossible that the attacker was black but she figured she could get more money out of the white guys. (Not necessarily true).

I really think this was an extortion attempt gone bad. She probably needed some dough for her pimp and she thought she was going to get it.

What happened to all your Christian morality?? I would think that you would be apalled that they hired strippers, but instead you seem to be apalled that a black person is accusing white people of something. I don't know what happened, but I think it's a shame that whenever a poor person accuses a rich person of something then they are obviously out for money and are thought to be lying.
The same thing happened in Eagle, Colorado a while back only it wasn't a stripper it was a hotel worker. People once again jumped to the defense of the rich person only they said that he was accused of being rich and Black.
