QUOTE OF THE DAY: The victim of rape and racism

by , under Enrique Tessieri

“What similarities are there between the victim of rape and racism? Deniers of rape blame the woman for causing the man to rape her. Deniers of racism blame the victim for causing the man or woman to insult him or her.

Racism feels like being raped. Racism and rape are chronic social ills. Arguments used to give such ills cover and aim to perpetuate them and dilute the victim’s suffering.”
