Activist: Just As I Was Composing An Essay About Standing Up Against "The Man," I Got Raped At Knifepoint By A Black Guy, And So, Of Course, I Blame Whitey More Than Ever

Am I being punked?

It's on Alter-Net, a lefty site, but maybe they're being punked.

I strongly suspect, alas, I am not being punked. I think this is legit -- just written by a lunatic.

I am baffled. Not that she didn't suddenly go full-racist or something. Not that she doesn't suddenly become less leftist in outlook.

I just don't understand how her response after rape is to immediately intellectualize it, abstract it, politicize it, and decide that the World's Population of White Men Who Didn't Rape Her are in fact guilty of her rape, while the black guy who did rape her isn't.

You see, he was driven to rape due to the exploitation by the white man; the exploited often become the exploiters, due to their exploitation by the primary exploiters, and this is exploited by white men for their various hegemonic exploits.

Or something. I know the word "exploit" appears several times in her explanation.

We are frequently instructed by the Left not to indulge in racial scapegoating. I have to say there seems to be a rather large exception to that otherwise-ironclad rule, to the extent, apparently, that white guys get blamed even when a feminist lunatic is raped by a black guy.

The real rule, of course, is to engage in nonstop racial scapegoating of Whitey, and to in fact transfer the sin of any other racial group to Whitey.

If you've merely stopped racial scapegoating of one race and began the racial scapegoating of another, have you actually achieved enlightenment or progressive nirvana? Seems to me you're just substituting one thuggishly stupid impulse for another one.

Thanks to "Christian" -- Oh, what a giveaway!

Oh, by the way, Sugar -- I have an alibi.

I guess I'd take your rape more seriously if you did.
