I’m in the middle of a mind-melting project, so no time for a coherent blog post. Instead, I’ll vaguely fulminate against Jessee Jackson, Gap sex caboose breaking, and sexism. If you want a coherent application of PNM Theory to domestic politics, read Chirol. If you want a good summary of the Lacrosse incident, read . Else, read on.
Rev. Jesse Jackson, Founder and President Rainbow/Push Coalition, has announced his organization will pay the Duke scandal accuser’s tuition regardless of whether she’s telling the truth or not about being raped.
Too bad Elisabet Sunde wasn’t black. Then she would at least have
help paying for her lawyer.
Of course, if Elisabet Sunde was black, her name might have been Crystal Gale Mangum.
Seriously. The washed up hack‘s presence should remind us that we have left the world of fact and entered the world of Race.
Similar hysteria was seen in China in a case that gave two men life sentences for soliciting a prostitute. As the AP reported:
A Chinese court sentenced a hotel worker and a prostitute to life in prison on Wednesday for organizing a three-day sex party for Japanese tourists – a case that outraged Chinese and reignited anger over Japan’s wartime conduct.
Its final day fell on Sept. 18, the anniversary of a Japanese attack in 1931 on a city in China’s northeast that Chinese regard as the start of World War II. The timing, which appeared to be coincidental, angered Chinese, many of whom believe Japan hasn’t atoned for wartime brutality, including mass rapes.
For that matter, remember Jewish Sex Gum?
The Chinese, Duke, and Arab incidents are symbolic, because they show a “deprived” group (Arabs, blacks, Chinese) taking sexual revenge against their perceived oppressors (Jews, whites, Japanese). It’s typical of both The Gap and Gap-like pockets in the Core. Just typical.
