Did anyone follow the Duke Lacrosse rape hoax that went on a few years back in North Carolina?



Did anyone read the UNTIL PROVEN INNOCENT by Stuart Taylor Jr and KC Johnson that came out in 2007?



If so, any comments about it and the case?



How did/do you fell about the real criminal in this case never being charged and prosecuted?



What about the fact that when the boys were exonerated, no one in the black community, especially the Black Panther Party, publicly apologized for their behavior; and neither did the students and faculty who stood against the boys who were 100% innocent of the charges laid against them. What does that say about that community and our society in general when mob mentality goes after a group of people in which everyone appears to side against because it would have been politically incorrect to even think the accuser in this case was in fact the criminal and not the white me she accused of gang raping her?



In anther book entitled STUPID BLACK MEN: How to Play the Race Card - and LOSE by Larry Elder, he made two interesting points:



"So if a black alleged rape victim accuses a white person of raoe, string him up, trial to follow. But if a black alleged rape victim accuses a rich and famous black man of rape, she's guilty of playing a "deceitful game." Different rules (pg. 16.



Then he noted the following:



"While the mainstream media extensively covered the Duke lacrosse case, they ignored a nearby, similar case. Less than two months before the alleged rape at Duke, four black stidents from the historically black Virginia Union University were accused of raping a white coed from the more upscale University of Richmond, after they had all attended a campus party. Two of the accused had ties to their school's football team. One was a star quarterback as a freshman. No outcry, no national coverage. The case queitly went to trial, where two of the men were convicted, one pled guilty to lesser charges, and charges against the fourth were dismissed. And, in this case, race was never cosidered an issue." (pg 172-173).



What does that say for race relations in America?



Comments?

So...if you didn't read the book, did you at least follow the news coverage and stories concerning this reverse discriminatory injustice against the innocent white men accused of raping a black woman, a known criminal prostitute, and public charge (i.e. on welfare for the number of children she had)!?!



How the black community stood strong and vigilant in seeing the accused hung even before they were tried...(not too mention the liberal school that they were attending), and when PROVEN INNOCENT...not a one of them apologized, not even the leader of the militatant and often outspoken New Black Panthers!?!



Cases like this should disgust the most honest and humane among us...yet no discussion on it...

It's no different than the "pretty White girl" effect that we see in our media. There's nothing to discuss really. The media seizes on cases that they think would bring the most outrage. Hate to say it, but many in the White community would still question what the White girl was doing at the party in the first place. Was the girl "cute"? Anything about her to make anyone care?

Why she was there is immaterial to the fact that she was raped and it was not covered in the news, when according to your linked story, it should have.



As of late it has been the reverse of what the linked article suggests...black is good and white is bad. If a black perp is arrested by a white cop and there is any question of impropriety, the news jumps all over it. Just look at the Rodney King fiasco (where the media didn't even show the ENTIRE video, just the part they needed to in order to incite rage among the black community) and its aftermath.



And the subject of this thread, look there...everyone came to Crystal Magnum's side and attacked the accused on the Lacrosse team like a pack of bloodthirsty wolves. As a result of the news coverage, the exact opposite of what your linked story suggests should have taken place, blacks tried and found the accused guilty in the public realm and scoffed at any possibility that the accuser could be a liar and making it up to save her own sorry criminal self (she had prior charges, so when she was caught drunk and passed out in the back of the car at a convenient store parking lot, she lied about the rape so she wouldn't be in violation of her parole, if my memory is correct).



While I agree to an extent parts of what the linked story discusses, it is not entirely accurate.



For example the Kyron Horman (spelling?) case in Oregon has been all over the news and continues to be and its been more than a year since his disappearance. I'm sure between that time several black and other minority children have gone missing and the news never reported it.



But as the article pointed out, there are good and bad stories...and whatever sells papers and gets the ratings is what is going to get reported.



When it comes to racial issues, blacks get the limelight when they accuse a white person of doing something allegedly racist, no matter how innocuous it is (e.g. Don Imus and the nappy headed hoe comments, White House Staffer fired for using word 'niggardly,' etc.).
