Do We Still Hate Our Women?

1 Rape. 1 11-year old sixth grade girl. 18 men. Who is the victim? I know you're looking like, " What?". Yes, I ask, who is the victim? typically when you hear a story that breaks like this, it would be a no-brainer who is the victim. I would have thought so too. But unfortunately, in this particular black community, we don't know who is the victim. 18 men hellaciously raped this little girl. They took pictures of the rape. They recorded the incident. They laughed and waited their turn to remove any ounce if innocence this little girl had. The killer part is that they are trying to portray the little girl like it was her fault and that she wanted to sleep with all 18 of these men, back to back to back and so on. They said she dressed provocatively and enticed these men to commit such a horrid act. I could not believe this mess. You would think the men are saying this stuff. NO!! This filth is coming from mothers, sisters, daughters, aunts, grandmothers, WOMEN!!! What the hell? You would think they would be the biggest sympathizers as a gender who daily is objectified by men. No. She brought this on herself! This is a sad day in black history. And it's March. Women's History Month. Damn, stand up for a young woman growing up. Even if that 11-YEAR OLD dressed provocatively, she was young. There is plenty time for her to realize to change her wardrobe. She is a victim!! She is THE VICTIM! The ONLY VICTIM!
Why are we even debating who is the victim? Why do we treat our women like this? We are treating our like they are the cause of their own fate. I can't say that all of them are victims. I won't even lie. But they are still owed respect! They are still owed justice. Our women carry so many burdens from other races. They are subjected to many snide remarks from other races. They are discriminated against harder than most persons of color. Why do they have to face the same disrespect from their own people? Now, it gets to the point where more and more black women are the ones crucifying them. They are losing with black men and now they are losing with black women. Unity in purpose will take them many places but unfortunately, they don't see that. I'm done with this topic, for now...thank you for taking a look into My Thoughts...
