30. It is very much the kind of victim-blaming rape victims experience & I have had it up to my teeth

No, really. If you are a white woman ó or any woman, but I just mention the ones who live with the privilege of whiteness, AND YET hear the same garbage from the age of puberty on through old age about how THEY are responsible for being assaulted.

By the same token our culture places the majority of the blame for black men being targeted and killed by white cops squarely on the shoulders of ó the victims.

If only she hadnít been walking down the street in a cute dress. If only he hadnít been driving a brand new car that didnít have metal plates yet. If only she hadnít gone to that party and unwittingly ingested Rohypnol. If only he hadnít been jogging. If only she hadnít let the cat out at 2 a.m. If only heíd put his hands on the steering wheel and hadnít asked the cops why they pulled him over. If only she hadnít been jogging.

Jesus Christ on a Trailer Hitch. These are not merely crimes of opportunity ó predators will make their own opportunities, and we seem to have a culture just full of predators.

Don't give me that line about ďNot all Men.Ē Fix it! You fix it! It isnít up to the victims and targets to endlessly alter their behavior until there is no possible mode of being in this world at all.
