Blacks are raping lesbians in South Africa

New York-based Human Rights Watch recently conducted interviews in six of South Africa's nine provinces and concluded: "Social attitudes towards homosexual, bisexual, and transgender people in South Africa have possibly hardened over the last two decades. The abuse they face on an everyday basis may be verbal, physical, or sexual - and may even result in murder." The group added: "This is a far cry from the promise of equality and non-discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation contained in the country's constitution." Most known victims are poor and black and so are the perpetrators, prompting many to ask how a people who fought against discrimination during apartheid can now treat some of its most vulnerable in such a violent manner. Siphokazi Mthathi, South African director at Human Rights Watch, said: "We've failed to make it understood that there is a price for rape. Sexism is still deeply embedded here. There is still a strong sense among men that they have power over women, women's bodies and there's also a strong sense that there's not going to be consequences because most often there are no consequences." Interpol estimates that half of South African women will be raped in their lifetime. But corrective rape - i.e. the rape of lesbians in the belief that it will make them heterosexual - is not even recognized as a hate crime and rights groups say few victims report their cases to the police. In many African countries being gay is illegal.

Half of South African women can expect to be raped in their lifetime? What?
These people are savages, and there is no two ways about it. I'm not talking about white South Africans either, who made it a beautiful place. Wherever blacks are in large numbers on whatever continent, anywhere in the world, anytime: savagery is inevitable. It's their nature.

As today in nearly every continent, country and city where Progressive ideas and elitist class have super imposed their “Progressive ideas” on to these lands that went from tribal 3rd world type structure to embracing 1st world Liberalism the facts are pointing out “it doesn’t work”. Progressive liberals believe in Darwinism yet they expect these millions of years of tribal history to melt away in mere decades, as usual the absolutely faulty reasoning and thought processes of the liberal elitist fail to square with life and the brutal truth it imposes wither the Progressives want it or not, Historical facts mean nothing to elitist who move in the unreal worlds supported by the 1 percent off the backs of the 53 percent that labor away to scratch out a decent living. They’ve been training monkeys for as many decades now as South Africa has been around and none of those monkeys have yet to graduate from High School! (But as quickly as these Progressive liberals have been dumb down Americas school they just might get a Monkey to Graduate!)
