A commenter, apparently a militant Black, has left some comments in the Fake White Slavemaster Black Slave Rape Epidemic post. They point out that White men continued raping Black women after Liberation in 1865 all the way up to the Second Liberation in 1964. A good summary here:
The sexual exploitation of black women by white men had its roots in slavery, but continued, often unpunished, through the better part of the twentieth century. As Reconstruction collapsed and Jim Crow arose, white men abducted and assaulted black women with alarming regularity.
White men lured black women and girls away from home with promises of steady work and better wages; attacked them on the job; abducted them at gun-point while traveling to or from home, work or church; raped them as a form of retribution or to enforce rules of racial and economic hierarchy; sexually humiliated and assaulted them on streetcars and buses, in taxi cabs and trains, and other public spaces.
I am sure this sort of thing went on. I am curious, though, was there any justice in these cases? What was the resolution? If the Black victim went to the police, would there be any arrests, charges, trials, convictions? At any rate, White men don’t seem to be raping Black women much these days, though the figures about the extent of this are controversial. I am quite sure that most of the rapes committed against Black women in the South during this period were Black men raping Black women, as is always the case. Which makes this comment suspect:
100 yrs after the Emancipation, black women were treated with disrespect by white men.
Given that most rapes of Black women were by Black men, why don’t we say that 100 years after Emancipation, black women were treated with disrespect by Black men? I have problems with indicting entire races with various offenses. Militant Blacks get all hung up on White men raping Black women, first as slaves, then afterward. Certainly there was some of this, but not as much as the Blacks make it out to be. The comments threads at Abagond are full of enraged militant Black women ranting on and on about how White men raped Black women. They essentially make us out to be a race of rapists. It’s all a bit strange, considering that Black men rape women at a rate 6X that of White men. And contrary to White nationalists, the vast majority of their victims are Black women. A Black woman is 4-5X more likely to be raped by a Black man as a White woman is. Which makes you wonder, why aren’t these radical Black women ranting about their own men when they go on and on about rape.
