Also, as I long suspected but had no evidence for, it turns out that the rape victim is indeed black. It’s unsurprising, incredibly depressing, and utter outrageous that the media didn’t feel the need to mention that this was a black woman being openly degraded and re-victimized by a white judge. In their attempts to be “non-racist” by not mentioning race at all, they have effectively ignored and condoned the racism which is certainly inseparable from this case.
I don’t really know what else to say. But for those who are interested, this article includes the first interview I have personally seen with the rape survivor.
