Re: “Teens Will Be Tried as Adults in Richmond Rape Case

SillySally is more than silly...she's deluded. To think that it 'never happened' twenty years ago in middle class Southern California shows how oblivious most people are to this crime. I have worked with a rape crisis center in a middle class Southern California area for more than 20 years, and can tell you that attacks such as this are not uncommon--the only difference is that this one resulted in headlines because of a 911 call. Usually there is no one to intervene or seek help, and often the victim may not report to the police and only contact centers such as ours months later for counseling assistance

Contrary to SillySally's delusions, white males can be-and are- rapists as well, and have participated in attacks just like this as well as other, more insidious rapes where they can hide behind their white middle class privilege. Don't tell me you never heard about the gang rape committed - and videotaped- by white males, including the son of a high ranking southern California law enforcement officer a few years ago. It was nearly successfully covered up, thanks to daddy, but it too finally made headlines.

If your daughters were honest with you, SillySally, they could probably tell you stories about rapes they know about committed by their white male classmates; but they won't tell you because they are continuing yiour legacy of delusion. Only now
their list of people to blame has probably expanded from hispanics, blacks (and Armenians ?) to include the victims as well. It's easier to keep up the facade that rape doesn't happen in your pristine area of paradise if you go along with everyone else and pretend that people you know couldn't do something like this--even if that means you let other people you know, like the girl who "wanted it" or "deserved it", take the blame.
