Sexual Assault of Black Women: A Non-Issue for Black Organizations?

48 comments
September 1, 2011 ‐ By Christelyn Karazin

When a dozen or so boys were arrested in Cleveland, Texas for the rape of an 11 year-old child (of a Hispanic background), Quanell X, leader of the New Black Panther Party, held a town hall meeting. Why? Because he was more concerned about the welfare and treatment of these “promising” young black boys whose lives may be ruined (ruined!) by a ‘child harlot.’ What struck me most was that the meeting was mostly composed of women–not a man in sight.  All the women gathered in support of their sons, seemingly without a thought or concern for the future of the child who was violated, and whose life will forever be altered by this event.

Another recent rape like this happened in Chicago, but worse.  An 18-year-old mentally disabled girl was kidnapped from her home and raped by a train of black men and boys in a basement.  The line of disgusting offenders snaked up the stairs as word spread in the neighborhood about a girl giving it up for free.  Did I mention this teenager has the mind of a four-year-old toddler?  Yet, the boy on the newscast says “she wanted it” because she was just laying there.

Bossip recently reported a case where a mother crossed state lines to get her 12-year-old adopted daughter an abortion at 22-weeks pregnant in order to protect her biological son, who raped the girl. Are you kidding me?

    BW like me don't even get near BM in real life…. you all are too damn dangerous, short tempered, violent makers of bastards.

    My heart goes out to you youngun… Hopefully you will be able to find someone, ANYONE willing to be in your corner come hell or high water. I hate to hear about situations such as these… Keep the faith and soldier on like we all have to… It's hard, but know that there are others who have had to endure as you have… Much love.

  • Chyeah

    Black males are the failures in the doomed black collective. Black women are better off without ya'll.

  • Chyeah

    Sorry, but there are plenty of reality shows of white women acting out on camera, but yet you only focus on one of the handful of shows out there about black women. So typical of your bitter black azz…

    If black women are to blame for not keeping their legs closed, then shouldn't black males keep their dikks in their pants as well?

    You're making black males out to be these mindless, retarded sex fiends with no sense of accountability on their part.

    What's interesting is that you, your ilk and white women have a lot in common when it comes to not being responsible for your stupid actions, so you have to have somebody to blame but yourselves…

    Try again…

  • Chyeah

    Sosososososo, where's the black man who fathered the child?

    In jail?

    Dead?

    Out in the street?

    Trying to find more women to mess around with?

    If anything, the black male has been everywhere except where he SHOULD be!

    failures…

  • Chyeah

    …LOLOL!!!…

    …black women are headed for greener pastures for good reason and that is because black males have failed themselves and their children…you're on here trying to blame black women when it's the black male who can't see past his dick for the betterment of himself, and his children…

    …when the going gets tough, what do black males do?…

    …they give up and they run from their responsibilities…

    …it's good that more black women are waking up and seeing black males for what the majority really are…

    …and it's not so positive…

  • Guest

    AND no father…at least the mother tried to raise the son. everyone knows that boys are turned into men by other men…women cannot do this. SO it is really the fathers fault for not being there if these monsters were raised by single mothers

  • Guest

    White men ARE the only ones who are handling the criminal behavior of BM…remember the police and the justice system…..bm try to stop wm from handling the criminal behavior of their brethern…don't snitch, not willing to testify, organizing marches (NAACP)…you are right..bw should be so happy to have wm around because without them the bc would look like much of africa…war torn with bw and children suffering unbearable hardships.

  • Guest

    They cannot be inspired and I am too busy living a productive wonderful life to be bothered with these fools. What black people do not understand is that NO ONE is being fooled by them. There will come a time when the majority culture (not just white people, but asian and hispanic too) will no longer tolerate this foolishness. My own brother learned the hard way. He raped a white girl and now has been in prison for 8 years. Do not know when he will be out, but I hope it is not for a REALLY long time. I do not know if he had done this to a bw before (I wouldn't be surprised) but he chose the WRONG girl this time. All I can say is that because she is white she saved a lot of bw from my brother who if he wasn't in jail would be raping some poor bw wwho has no one to go to bat for her. The people in prison committed crimes…they did things that ANYONE would understand as criminal so I do not understand the need to understand the problem….do not commit crimes and you will be free to live a life outside prison walls.

    Amen Joe.

  • The Rain

    @Chyeah,last time I checked black women would not exist without black men.You people always over estimate your value.How’s that working out for you lately?

    • Chyeah

      …it's working out great for me, since i don't let the views of others validate me as a human being…with that being said, our value as women is priceless…and we know it, that's why you're so threatened by us…

      • The Rain

        Wow,look around no one is threatened by you people.Everybody seem to be able to get a man but black women.If attitude,stupidity,greed,having a big mouth,greed,no social skills,cloaking your ignorance in attitude,no self control,no hobbies,being shortsighted ,just to name a few things were actually good things,you people might be getting married at more than 30%,not be leading in catching stds,not be leading in out of wedlock births,by multiple pappies,might not be leading in being fat asses,and you might be worth more than $5.00 so you wouldn't have to be selling p*ssy for college tuition.If you were a car and I bought you for what you were really worth and sold you for what you think you are worth,I would make a mint.Keep on overestimating your value and you will keep on being passed over.

  • The Rain

    Sexual abuse is not running more rampant in the black community than it is any other community.Sexual abuse is a human pathology.Once again a criminal act is being painted as a black male crime.All the afore mentioned crimes were not everyday criminal acts,otherwise they would’ve not stood out as the circus freak heinous acts they were.Out of the millions of black men that go about their normal daily lives ,less than 3% do something so despicable as rape.The media takes this stuff ,sensationalizes it and have those that believe anything they see on tv,panicing and thinking it’s an epidemic,when these same non thinking reactionary people have never seen nor personally know any victims or commiters of such crimes.

  • Chyeah

    ^^^^THIS!!!!!

  • Chyeah

    Sooooo, shouldn't non-black women do the same thing, since black males are running each other over to get to them? Oh, that's right, that's the black woman's job to uplift the black male and protect him. Her only purpose is to be the gatekeeper for the doomed black community.

    Yeah, whatever…

  • inori

    you are an idiot and deserve to be shot hopefully by a black woman who i am sure you have molested. M.F****r

  • Joe

    Give me a break with all this garbage and black women woah is me crying. No one is pro sexual abuse and that includes black men. This site continues to bash everything that is black while holding everything that is white on some pedestal. There is sexual assault in white communities and Hispanic communities all the time, Hispanic and white women go to the proper authorities. White men molest little children at a rate higher then any other race of man yet their are no advocacy groups in place to confront it because it is a given that molestation like sexual assault is horrific.

    No man who is a man would stand for harming a woman and its band of negro females are something else. No wonder alot of black men dont want to deal with black women.

    All of a sudden black men were raping women in Katrina, GTFO with that garbage. All communities deal with sexual assault of their women and it always goes under the rug but some of these negro females would have you think that it does not. Cut it out, black advocacy groups are against sexual assault. Cut out all the shucking and jiving and minstrel act for white America. Black women love shucking and jiving for the white race.

    • In All Honesty

      Very true. I'm glad to see more BM stand up against the collective disrespect they've been receiving in the Black blog world, and by BW no less. It's all propoganda, and you know why these women do it? They feel that BM won't do anything about it anyway. BW feel that they could say whatever they want about BM, knowing that when the time comes where they'd need us… we'd forget all about the nastiness they've exposed. The BW on this site (the writer included, once again) will never RESPECT BM.

      So, what right do BW have to expect anything out of men they have NO respect for? They have no right.

      • Guest

        BW should not expect ANYTHING from bm….b/c they are not gonna get anything from them. BM don't have anything to give anyway…..remember bm are kept down, they don't know any better, they are children…..please…the sooner bw realize that you are not at a loss b/c bm do not defend or protect you the better. Move on and get away from them…you would have better luck anywhere else then in most prodominantly black areas anyway…everyone knows that.

    Preach Maqueda. Preach!

  • Sheila

    YOU ARE CONQUERED!

  • legemeaux

    You raise an excellent point. From our beginnings in this country black men have witnessed us be sexual repositories while white women were put on a pedastal. as slaves they were powerless to stop it. now, unfortunately they seem to believe we simply are not worth it.

  • HeadSmackeroni

    Why would anyone have to force themselves on a black woman?
    The only black women that are ever raped, are innocent children (that don't lie) – and female African slaves.

    No black woman is raped, ever. Sorry.

    • legemeaux

      Being a troll is one thing. But you need to draw the line somewhere. the least you can do is apologize for that comment.

  • Brodie

    Nice deflection.

  • In All Honesty

    This isn't about basic human respect, not at all. This article referenced Black men specifically about not stepping up to protect BW.

    Knowing the works of the writer, she doesn't deserve to talk to or about BM as if she knows us. She seriously needs to take her mess to non-BM. I'd love to just turn my back on BW and be done with it, but you all keep defaming and propogandizing BM through any medium you all can get your hands on. Then, you "act" surprised when Black men show up on the very sites that discuss them so biasedly.

    • legemeaux

      I have never seen an anything here defaming black men. there are articles that encourage black women to open up their dating options. nothing at all against black men. my personal opinion is that our loyalty has been taken for granted so long that when someone states the obvoious, that we need to stop giving what has not been earned, all hell breaks loose with you. it all comes down to black men can do what they want while we suffer silently, support your struggles, and bear your children,

      • In All Honesty

        If you haven't seen ANYTHING on this site defaming Black men, then we need to stop speaking with one another. I don't converse with anyone who is being dishonest. I know the difference between "encouraging Black women to open up their dating options" and "defaming Black men", and I'm willing to give you the benefit of the doubt in saying that you know the difference as well. But for BW like the writer of this article (and writers of other articles here), they choose NOT to differentiate the two.

        Since Black men are so terrible and non-BM are a much better alternative, let's give non-BM an opportunity to "earn" the favor that BW on these blogs have decided to simply hand them. I'm not rearranging my livelihood for group of women who thinks other races of men are better than me.

  • Tiffany

    Can you please epxlain why BM do not even "have to protect, talk to, or even like" BW but BW need to learn our to "treat their men"? The irony is just stupid! If BW need to learn need to treat their men better, then "their men" need to stand up and be worthy of said treatment!!

    • In All Honesty

      Indeed. That's why I want to see if "rainbeau men" do something about all of this.

      We all know that BM aren't BW's men (at least we should). Just look at the way BW treat BM in this era of Black blogging. I'm looking at the writer here. When have any of you ever seen her acknowledge Black men (in general) in any way that isn't racially charged? But then she wants the same men she denigrates, to do something just because SHE says so? No, let the men you celebrate handle it. Let YOUR men (a.k.a. "non-BM") take care of it. BM shouldn't do anything for any BW outside of her family.

      Hopefully then, BW who date IR will stop talking about men (BM) who want nothing to do with them in articles such as this. It's already come to a point where it's beyond pathetic and steadfastly approaching levels of annoyance.

  • Legacy

    I meant to say not charged (SP)

  • EclecticPearl

    Excuse the typos. I meant *I* wonder…

    and *would* it…

  • EclecticPearl

    What is this person 'In All Honesty' babbling about Rainbeau men should be looking out for BW? What does this have to do with anything? I wish people would address the specific topic which is that BW and Black girls and not protected or fought for when they are assaulted. I swear some black males are like children, spoiled, self-entitled, selfish brats who can't think of the welfare of others unless it benefits them. And when someone points out the flaws, they either start throwing temper tantrums or try to divert the attention else where.

    Sorry to say, but until BW begin demanding better for themselves and daughters, these animals will continue. Black males are so used to BW protesting, marching and fighting for the black males cause. Unfortunately, the favor is never returned. How wonder how long it will be or what it owuld ever take for BW to wake up from their slumber and start fighting for themselves.

    • sexistwomanistbohemian

      BW – move out of the hood!

      Stop being beast of burdens, there are no men to protect you!

      BM make excuses for other BM when they rap & molest.

    Black women continue to be the forgotten and the downtrodden. If others won't support us we'll just have to do it ourselves. Like we always do.

  • justme

    The black community as a whole cares only about the men so of course the social organizations focus on the black male. The black women is only highlighted when what they do negatively affects the black male. I swear we can do no right, even if we all hung ourselves to rid the world of “the angry, can’t accomplish anything, lazy, fat, and dumb” individuals that we apparently are they would complain that we didn’t tie the noose properly.

    • QB1

      RT!!! lol…i never looked at it that way " black community only cares about the men"..we do!!! every woman I know talks about and praises a man even in his stages of wrong. But when it come to talking about or praising a fellow black woman…*crickets*

      • Kim

        I don't know why everyone is surprised. For too long, the black community has not cared about black women and girls. They know it. That is why some people throw everything but the kitchen sink when ever it is brought up. The sad part about it is that OTHER black women raise these girls and boys. They know they are not teaching them how to respect women, let alone other people. There is a saying, "If you plan to dig a ditch, you'd better dig two, one for me and one for you."

    • sexistwomanistbohemian

      Bravo, @jestme.

      You could not pay me to live in 'the hood'.

      Hoods are not safe for BW and children.

      My advice to BW? Move out of the hood asap, its that serious. There are some hoods I refuse to visit. Negroes get salty. Sorry, my name ain't MLK. Every damn body knows how violent and implusive some BM are.

    • SayCheese

      I agree. I been noticing that for the longest. All the problems and soical organizations never seemed to involve anything about women.

  • Miltown

    And some of these foolish responses are exactly why she wrote this article. I agree, more attention should be paid to this subject. I’m appalled at the BP who blamed the 11 year old for what happened to her.

  • HeadSmackeroni

    Makes me want to cut my own d*ck off!

  • In All Honesty

    Hmm. The way I see it, the writer should be criticizing "rainbeau men" for not looking out for BW. Those are the men she encourages BW to date. She never gives BM props anyway, so why should her criticisms about BM be taken seriously? *Kanye shrug* to this nonsense.

    • sexistwomanistbohemian

      You're cold.

    • Penceyprep

      You've just provided more proof that the black community does not give a damn about assaults against black women. What does the writers views on interracial dating have to do with anything? The fact that you show more outrage about that instead of these children that were assaulted is disgusting. The only nonsense I see on this post in your comment.

      • cake211

        you're perpetuating the whole problem in the first place- black women have to wait to get their justice because we black men have to get our just due first. yes, i understand, black guys get a lot of crap just for being black, but its so hard to support the black men that feel they have the right to disrespect the black woman in such a gross and inhumane manner. and yet, we black women STILL stand behind you, even to our own detriment.

        if you could take just one second to think about someone other than urself, you could do yourself and black women a grand favor. the only thing more disgusting than a man raping or sexually abusing a woman is the man that stands by and does nothing because "she probly deserved it" or "its not my responsibility" or "i can't do that to my brother." instead of complaining about what this author is "doing" to black men, why not try to break the mold and stand up for a black woman? i'm almost certain that you know black women who have done the same for you, even if its only your momma.

        and for the record, the men who are responsible for the freedom of our people didn't do it by themselves. Black women were fighting just as hard right beside them.
