THE DUKE PLAYERS WERE AT THE WRONG PLACE AT THE WRONG TIME AND AS A RESULT, THEY LOST AN ENTIRE SEASON. THE WHOLE THING WAS A SET UP TO QUESTION THE REPUTATION OF NOT ONLY THE THREE PLAYERS BUT , DUKE UNIVERSITY AS WELL.

False rape claims have become an epidemic in America.
Ladies,how far are you gonna take this crap?C'mon,lets be fair.
This case was truly preposterous because the girl was a known prostitute.It should have been laughed out of the police station,even before it got to court.
Prostitutes get raped too. But in this case, there was every indication it was a false claim.

What is most admirable about the accused lacrosse players is the way they stuck together despite what must have been tremendous pressure of the "Prisoner's Dilemma" sort. Any of those guys could probably have bought himself immunity by being the first to support DA Michael Nifong's lies. Yet none of them succumbed to the temptation to buy his own safety at the expense of the others, and that's more than commendable: it's the sort of miracle that qualifies someone for sainthood.

The most reprehensible thing about this episode, other than Nifong's politically motivated betrayal of his office, is the anti-White bias in the media. In January 2006, about two months before the falsely alleged rape at Duke, there was an actual rape at the University of Richmond (Virginia) in which a White coed was attacked by four Black students from nearby Virginia Union University, one of whom was a former quarterback from the VUU football team.

But in that rape case, there was no national media coverage. The bosses of the mass media simply weren't interested in it because they couldn't use it to make Blacks look good (or to make Whites look bad). So it was ignored.

In the VUU rape case, no VUU professors went on a crusade against the Black students who perpetrated the crime. The President of VUU didn't see fit to expell anyone, to fire any coaches, or to cancel the football season - all of whichlike did occur at Duke University as the result of Crystal Gail Mangum's malicious lies. And no District Attorneys gave it any special attention.

Three of the VUU black rapists were convicted, but their sentences were trivial. One of them got only four months in jail. The White lacrosse players at Duke were threatened with 31 years in prison. Do you see how DIFFERENT things are when Whites are accused of rape, instead of Blacks?

Yet Black males perpetrate rape much more often than White men do: about five times as often, according to Justice Department statistics. When you examine only rapes for which the perpetrator(s) and the victim(s) are of opposite races, the ratio gets much more lopsided. In one-on-one interracial rapes, Black men rape White women about 90 times more often than the reverse. For interracial GANG rapes, crimes having Black perpetrators are about 200 times more common than those having White perpetrators.

Furthermore, Blacks from Durham and from NCCU have for years made a sport of attacking and raping White coeds at Duke University. Notice that rape becomes a serious crime to the media only when White men are accused of raping a Black woman.

There's a curious, apparently inexplicable, facet in the collective behavior of organized feminists. You'd think that since Black males are much more likely to rape women than White men are, that feminism would correctly apportion rape-blame by race, instead of getting it turned around backwards, as they do with their race-specific hostility toward "privileged WHITE men." When you look for explanations for this weirdness, the most logical conclusion is that feminism isn't really what it pretends to be.
If you remember, feminism ostensibly began as a movement to secure "gender equality." Later, it turned out that that was only a pretense, that feminists would, given any conflict with justice or moral rightness, aggressively pursue women's interests even when the woman was in the wrong.
Now it appears that this, too, is a sham - or, if it is not a sham, then it must at least be true that the interests of women have a lower priority among the top feminists than leftist racial politics do. The higher you go in the hierarchy of purpose, the nearer feminism approaches the "race mixing with non-White preferances" ideology of leftists.
White feminists have made a bad bargain with the devil. They must support Black women who accuse White men of rape, even though the accusations are often false. But Blacks do not defend White women who have been raped by Blacks, and, on top of that, White feminists are pressured to pretend that they do not notice which side of the racial fence most of the rapes are coming from. Instead, they must live a lie or be ostracised, or worse. Why would an honest White woman want to be a feminist anymore?

It doesn't matter if she was a prostitute or not if she said no to the sex, then it was rape no matter what her personal business was. No one says that when a white woman is a whore and she accuses black men of raping her, now do they. If it was not permitted by the woman it was rape, no matter what her personal life was like.

Was it really necessary for you to post this twice?
Anyways,
you do have some good points here.
I'm a Black male who happens to agree with you about feminism.I think it goes beyond a simple race issue,though.I see that feminists will support any woman in any situation(even though it's clear that many of these women are lying these days).The lunacy(started by White women in the 1960's)has unfortunately spread to women of all races.The effect in the Black community has been nothing short of disastrous.Prior to the feminist era,the rate of single parent homes was drastically lower,even among Blacks.So feminists,while ostensibly being civil-rights minded,ended up destroying the lives of 2 generations of children.We see the results everyday in drug and crime statistics(just to name 2 areas where society's lost children grow up to haunt us).
Well let's be real now. Black men do see white women as a prize, and I made it my goal to find out why. I asked a lot of my guy friends and they said that they are easier than black women are. It's also true that white women see black men as a prize too, and when things don't go their way in a relationship or sexually they yell rape, and do you know why? Because it is easy for a black man to be convicted in the eyes of the law. This you cannot deny. Nobody said anything when white men were raping black women consistantly. That was no problem was it? It shouldn't be a race thing but it is and the truth is black men are convicted and falsely accused more than truthfully accused by white women. That's a fact!

So, you think that because someone is black that makes them a liar? If they are white that makes them truthful? I know a many of black men who were convicted of or came close to being convicted of raping a white woman and they weren't even around them at first. The truth is these women are attracted to black men and some people around them don't agree with their preferences and when they are caught in their mess, they don't want to take responsibility for their action. Since when did pigmentation have anything to do with your character?
