And Now, On the Occasion of the Verdict from the Steubenville Rape Trial, I Bring You A Word from Comedian Dick Gregory

And that goes double for CNN and their tone-deaf coverage of the verdict; for the friends of Trent Mays and Ma’lik Richmond who have not yet been prosecuted but soon will be; and for any one else who can buy a clue.

It’s not what a woman wears, what she looks like, what part of town she lives in, and what color she is, what she does for a living, and whether she likes booze.  Rape begins in the minds of men even if she is wearing a turtleneck sweater, is carrying a rag doll, is living at the trailer park at the edge of town, or is sharing a fox hole with other grunts in Afghanistan.

It’s past time to educate our boys and men about rape.  Rape is not manhood.  It is not a rite of passage.  Women don’t “ask” for it.  It is immoral to rape women and girls and other men.  It is against the law.  Rape is not a laughing matter.  Rape is a crime against humanity in international courts.

Let’s not stop at Steubenville, Ohio.  Let’s stop rape.  Everywhere.

  1. Rape is hideous. The obvious result of the objectification of women in general, but more precisely women of color. I think Hannity was right on this one, women should own and know how to use a hand-gun, and socieity should take more responsibility to train (socialize) young men to respect a woman’s body in ALL respects, nomatter what the condition or color.

    • Thank you for commenting, however, leave Klannity out of this. Handguns will not solve the problem of rape. American men and boys and American parents will solve this problem by telling their sons that it is not okay to plan or to commit a rape. Period. One does not need to compound a crime by committing a crime.
