A Tale of Two “Rapes”

By Debbie Schlussel
For race merchants, hypocrisy and double standards are always the order of the day.
The alleged rape of a stripper (oops, I mean . . . “exotic dancer”) by two Duke University Lacrosse players bears that out magnificently. Especially when compared to the rape of Desiree Washington by boxer Mike Tyson, 15 years ago.
In that 1991 case, both victim and perpetrator were Black. While the accused was a prominent athlete, the victim was not a stripper, but a religious Christian and contestant in the Miss Black America pageant. Guess whose side the majority of Black race merchants took?
Hint: It wasn’t the woman. Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan attacked Miss Black America organizers for allowing Tyson near the victim, saying they should have predicted the result. He blamed the victim for going up to a hotel room with Tyson.

Race Merchants of Hate: Farrakhan, Shabazz, Jackson

Farrakhan, in a speech to followers, attacked the women in his audience, saying, “How many times, sisters, have you said ‘No’ and you meant ‘Yes’?”
While the question of whether Washington was really raped by Tyson–when she voluntarily went to a hotel room alone with him and engaged in other consensual behavior–remains a legitimate question, why is it a question for Black America’s most revered leaders in that case, but NOT in the case a stripper going to perform for a room full of drunken, burly male athletes?
There can only be one answer: In the stripper’s case, the alleged rapists are White.
Where Farrakhan et al saw Tyson as “railroaded” in his rape conviction, they want to railroad the two Duke accused rapists in exactly the same way.
Farrakhan’s younger version, Malik Zulu Shabazz, who heads the New Black Panther Party, took his posse of thugs to Durham to “monitor progress of the criminal case against Collin Finnerty and Reade Seligmann,” the two White alleged rapists.
Shabazz made a number of demands, some of which Duke has pledged to undertake. The school already conducted in a federal-scale investigation of the two men and the Lacrosse Team.
There was no such similar investigation of potential violence towards women by pro boxing authorities, when Tyson was accused and then convicted. Why would there be? The racism shakedown artists were all on Tyson’s side.
Then, there’s our favorite vintage race merchant, Jesse Jackson. Like that old chartreuse pair of polyester pants from the 70’s, he’s always front and center at the “Politics of Hate” consignment shop. Jackson has pledged a full college scholarship to the stripper, regardless of whether or not she is telling the truth about the alleged rape. Where was Desiree Washington’s scholarship? As Miss Black Rhode Island, she had to seek her own protection from all the death threats Minister Farrakhan’s attack on her generated.
Contrast that with the Durham stripper. She is reportedly getting round-the-clock security from Shabazz’s group.

Weird Al Sharpton: Race Merchant & Coke Dealer

Weird Al Sharpton has also inserted himself. The Reverend-Without-a-Pulpit told Bill O’Reilly, “I think that when you look at the racial atmosphere, . . . when you look at a lot of people feeling that they have been treated differently, where this girl has basically had a character charged in the media, there is a lot of racism that’s in the air.” Not a peep out of Weird Al when Desiree Washington was being tried and convicted in the media by his friend Farrakhan and failed Tyson appellate lawyer Alan Dershowitz. Too busy trying to pay the judgment against him for orchestrating the Tawana Brawley fraud . . . which the Duke case strongly resembles.
No-one knows whether the Duke men raped the stripper. But the evidence they have produced thus far provides at least one of them with an alibi that he was not even at the scene at the time. The behavior of the stripper and alleged victim, as initially reported by her father and a fellow stripper, also appears to prove that nothing illicit happened. Ditto for the picture of the stripper smiling upon her return home. Then, there is her past criminal history and the fact that she is the single mother of two kids by different fathers.
In contrast, Mike Tyson admitted he was in the hotel room. Desiree Washington did not have even a smudge in her history–no scrapes with the law or prior “wolf-cries” of rape. She was not a stripper giving lap dances at parties populated by drunk rowdy males.
But it was she, not Tyson, who America’s most prominent race merchants were pimping.
The stripper’s most prominent race warrior, Shabazz, has–like Sharpton and Jackson–a record of picking the wrong side.
He claimed Jews knew of the 9/11 attacks and left the World Trade Center in advance. Shabazz also voiced support for Al-Qaeda terrorist Zacarias Moussaoui.
He was wrong then. And he’s wrong now.

Just an excellent, fair, and balanced article full of common sense, Debbie. Bravo!

And now DA Nifong has been re-elected. How many peoples’ lives did he ruin to get re-elected? This was all about politics for the DA. The problem now is that Nifong has shown his unwillingness to consider mitigating evidence. He can’t change course, no matter how much he wants to, without enraging the likes of Shabazz and Jackson. Now that he has been reelected, he is going to want it all to go away. Maybe a nice payout to the Rainbow Coalition will put things right. If not, for political reasons, he has to prosecute no matter how weak a case he may have. What a sad state of affairs.

mixina on May 3, 2006 at 10:12 am

This whole case is more about poletics than racism. It involves rascism only to the extent that Nifong needed the black vote to get re-elected. He is pandering to them. The case has more holes in it than a pasta strainer and he knows it. As mixina points out, he has made his bed and now must sleep in it. I don’t know how long he has been re-elected for, but am willing to bet he is counting on the short term memories of the electorate when the next time comes around. In typical left wing political fashion, he is willing to destroy the lives of others to achieve political gain. The fact that only the extreme fringe of the “Black Rights” community are making any waves about this illustrates the flimsiness of the indictments. The “New Black Panthers” are nothing more than a different incarnation of the Nation of Islam and Jackson hasen’t had any significant face time in front of a TV camera in a long time. He is there just so we won’t forget him. He tried to inject himself into the Cindy Sheehan debachle and that went no where, so now He’s Baaaaack!

Architect on May 3, 2006 at 10:48 am

Do you wonder as well as I, what else the Durham stripper is getting round-the-clock from Shabazz’s group?

enemaofthestatusquo on May 3, 2006 at 11:31 am

Right you are, Debbie.
Liberals: When there is a rape accusation, the woman is ALWAYS telling the truth…..except if the perpetrator is a prominent liberal (e.g., Bill Clinton or William KENNEDY Smith)…or a famous black athlete (e.g., Kobe Bryant, Mike Tyson).
Conservatives: When someone cries rape, look at the EVIDENCE. DO NOT ASSUME that either the accuser or the accused is telling the truth. (Only the jury MUST presume innocence.) Status is no reason to protect or prosecute someone.
To anyone: Which is justice?
Architect,
The OLD Black Panthers were just Communists. I suspect that the “New” Black Panthers are nothing more than just another outdated, socialist, separatist group.

Loser on May 3, 2006 at 12:19 pm

Don’t worry Debbie–as soon as the Black Panthers clean up Durham they will move on to Las Vegas to protect the white casino worker who was attacked by a group of black thugs. How come we don’t hear about that case daily on the MSM?

Frank on May 3, 2006 at 12:58 pm

This will be my last post on this website, I think I’ve tortured you all long enough. I’m sure “Danny” and others will be glad to hear this! I’ve tried to wake as many people up to reality as possible but I had to be careful of how much and what I said. Too much information at one time is like giving a baby steak to eat instead of milk — they spit it up. For those of you who “got it” please forgive my repeated attempts to get the point across. But I am certain there are those who didn’t “get it” and still don’t. In any event, this is my last comment and as Debbie says, everyone can then return to their “Oprah viewing.”
It might interest you to note that the Duke lacrosse team scandal got 24 million hits on Google while three minority football heroes who got in trouble with the law, one assault, and two rapes, in the last week went unnoticed by the MSM. Why is that?
For anyone who has ever worked in a sex-crimes unit, the issue of rape and other sexual crimes against women, young ladies, girls, and even babies is an experience you will never forget. Particularly if you have daughters yourself. This issue will always be close to my heart.
But this story has far reaching consequences for what is going on throughout the West today and, as I have hinted, also affects Israel. There were basically three nations on earth that would readily come to the defense of Israel militarily in her time of need: the U.S., Britain, and Australia. Britain is now gone, Australia is only two steps behind Britain, and now the hour of testing is upon the U.S.. Indeed, even Israel itself suffers from the same scourge that the West does.
What am I talking about? I am talking about the mindset that we have all bought into and has led to our current desperate conditions. It is a mindset of dispossession that is used as a weapon against us by the Islamists, illegal aliens, and those mentioned by Debbie above among others. It is being taught now formally in all our academic institutions here in the U.S. and throughout Europe. It has been woven into the fabric of our government and our legal system. It will destroy us as a people if we don?t recognize it. It’s most rabid form is known as “Whiteness Studies” and is being sponsored by the Ford Foundation, Leftists in high places, and the George Scoros types.
Whether the U.S. will follow the path of Europe to destruction and helplessness from within will be seen by how our Congress and Senate votes on the illegal alien issue. This will be our test on the psychosis wrought by the merchants of dispossession.
At the point of being redundant, please suffer me one last time and read the comments here. It should explain the rest clearly enough:
http://www.debbieschlussel.com/archives/2006/04/no_meat_monday.html#comments
Finally, ladies please don’t let your daughters refer to themselves as “bitches” and “hoes” lest they come to believe it themselves. I’ve heard them do this and just laugh about it. They need to be kept as far away from that toxic rap culture as possible. Thanks to Hollywood, the rap culture is now embraced along with the deadly form of Islam in the ghettos of Europe by millions of Muslims — deadly mix indeed.
Debbie, I would put a ring on your finger in a heart-beat. Not only are you highly intelligent and beautiful but you are too good a woman to be on the loose!
Best wishes.
THANK YOU, PARACLESE! BUT WHY ARE YOU NOT GOING TO POST ANYMORE? YOUR COMMENTS WERE AND ARE WELL MADE AND VERY WELCOME HERE. NO-ONE IS BANNING YOU FROM THIS SITE.

You shouldn’t stop posting Paraclese. You’re posts are always very well written and insightful. It’s been a pleasure reading them.

Concerned Conservative on May 3, 2006 at 1:20 pm

I feel it’s irresponsible journalism that reporters are doing with this story, putting it on the front page instead of the back. There’s really no point in that except giving race-baiters what they want and that’s free publicity. It’s really getting harder to be a White male these days.

KnightoftheImpaler on May 3, 2006 at 3:15 pm

As always, you hit the nail on the head. 24/7 TV has become the tail that wags the dog…whatever strikes their fancy (as the two instances above prove) gets lots and lots of coverage and you can just forget reading or hearing much if it isn’t in their interest! What is sad is that it really doesn’t matter if what is said is true…the damage is already done. What if it comes out that this woman in Durham wasn’t telling the truth? A top school and the lives of these young men will be changed forever simply because of allegations. The MSM doesn’t realize though, that they really aren’t fooling any thinking person.

JASCC on May 3, 2006 at 3:39 pm

No way do you leave Paraclese … you are needed in this fight.

Athling on May 3, 2006 at 4:31 pm

This is simply the point of precipitation … too many things loose at the same time breeds resentment among those who were formerly tolerant, and there’s a storm coming.
The idiots who think that Real America is imploding, or whatever, really don’t get it. Real America is getting PO’d, and Real America can get Real Mean when the insults go too far.
This is not the EU … Real Americans of all ethnic and economic backgrounds do not just give up and quit like those Eurotrash socialist losers. WE get MAD and WE take it out on those who really do have it coming.
I’m loving this … everybody is finally getting to see it for what it is. And tolerance is a bit in short supply these days.

Athling on May 3, 2006 at 4:41 pm

I’ve been blocked out for a few days … I can read but not access.
Every time I hassle Slate, this seems to happen. I can only wonder why Bill Gates pimps Slate, and if everything is as ethical behind the scenes as it should be … so I changed browsers … and I’m back again :)
Maybe Slate would like it if maybe 20 military types paid their server a visit with high end tech.
If that happens, it’s purely coincidence, as the question was purely rhetorical.
Howevrr, I suspect that enough could be found to warrant a Senate Investigation into Internet fraud under RICO.

paraseeeessee;for you to think i’m with these blow jobs, .Shows you haven’t been here(THIS SITE) that long.Now tell g-d you love ‘little Israel” and that’s ‘way’ good enough.I do take exception that you think I’m with them.don’t let some ‘fat fools” keep you from Debbie’s site.

danny on May 3, 2006 at 5:59 pm

paracless:I hope you are reading this .The only reason banning has not happened to me on debbie’s site is because my mother + her fam.came from the same life.And i should have stopped posting here ’cause it’s to easy.Please ,sorry.

danny on May 3, 2006 at 6:13 pm

Debbie,
I agree that it is being played by the media for what it is worth. What about Kobe Bryant with a white girl? Did anybody offer her a scholarship, regardless of whether or not she lied?
Loser,
I believe you are correct that matters such as this should be tried in court not in the court of public opinion.
Frank,
Regarding your quote “as soon as the Black Panthers clean up Durham they will move on to Las Vegas to protect the white casino worker who was attacked by a group of black thugs.” WHAT? The black panthers are the black version of the KKK. They DO NOT protect white people!
PARACLESE- Why are you leaving? Is it that you think this article or the comments are distasteful? If so and you have information that will enlighten us all about it, that is MORE reason to STAY. A Conservative is generally a sensible person, unless overwhelmed by too many liberals (as you may have noted in my prior posts). Therefore, it is important to express your views and explain why they exist, for the betterment of our party.

TheIcePrincess on May 3, 2006 at 10:15 pm

C’mon, Danny, my homey. Admit it, you, me, and Thee_Bruno are best of buds. You know we all washed Pam Anderson’s mutt last weekend and then you even let us hang around while you did your planetary rounds in West Hollywood.
Paraclese, one thing I’ll agree with Ole Danny boy about, if you let Uncle Fester Dannyelle have any influence on you leaving, that really does make you look pretty bad.

The_Man on May 4, 2006 at 12:08 am

Now I know why they say never look back! I’ve got a flight to catch on Friday so this really is my last post. I’m not mad at anyone, not even Danny :-)
I hope to come back after the “amnesty” issue is settled and read all your great comments. Please remember that most of us had our ancestors come from Europe and probably still have relatives there that we don’t even know exist — they are our people too but most have corrupt governments that the people themselves hate. And we must support Israel just as much. I consider them my people too.
Please don’t misunderstand me, I don’t want you to hate anyone but I DO want you to know the truth whether it offends anyone or not. When we can no longer speak the truth and stand up for what is right then it really IS over. It’s up to you. You can dispossess yourselves and give your land, jobs, taxes, and eventually enormous political power to the illegals marching and demanding it from you or you can stand up and say no. You can “tolerate” radical Islamists and be slaughtered for it or not. Look at how much flak Debbie caught, even from conservatives, over the Jill Carroll issue. Did Debbie back down? NO and that’s why I’m crazy about her and others who will stand their ground.
If nothing else, be very wary of the media. People make decisions based on the information they receive — they know that and use that. It’s not that they necessarily lie to us it’s just that they rarely tell us the whole truth. Which is a defacto lie. Have we forgotten Dan Rather and company trying to overthrow an entire U.S. Presidential election? How about the recent NBC anti-Muslim set-up piece — ‘the hunt for racists’? Since this topic was about rape and hypocrisy allow me to give you another little example that the media knows but will never tell you about. For those who are heavily brain-washed, brace yourselves, this will hurt but you need to know the truth.
According to the FBI’s annual National Crime Victims Survey, there are 900 cases of white-on-black rape per year on average. Yet there are 15,400 black-on-white rapes per year. This puts Al Sharpton’s and Jesse Jackson’s hypocrisy in a whole new light. Remember now, we can’t talk about these things. We are the “tolerant” ones. And on it goes…
Anyway, I care about each and every one of you regardless of your ethnicity if you are pro-USA, pro-Israel, and pro-Europe. Speak the truth and stand up for what is right. We’ve got terrorists to catch and illegals to expel. I have eyes everywhere. We are watching. (No flames please, I won’t see them.)

Paraclese on May 4, 2006 at 3:44 am

I’m not real big on Europe these days … they’re a bit too socialist, and they’re a bit too PLO.

Athling on May 6, 2006 at 10:20 pm

I’m pro-USA, I’m pro-Israel, but I’mnot real big on Europe these days … they smell a bit too Hamas and PLO to me.

Athling on May 6, 2006 at 10:28 pm

sorry about the double postings … I haven’t got all the new browser settings working yet :)
