6. My question is, to what degree is this true?
It's a common thing to paint poor people, particularly black ones, as mass rapists. It occurred in the days following the earth quake, and turned out basically not to be true. It even occurred after Katrina.

I go to Africa quite a bit and apparently there, too, men can't stop raping women, but outside the DR Congo it does not appear to be true to me.
