However, Kijera’s trip took a turn for the worse when one of the men she had worked to protect cornered her on the rooftop, and raped her numerous times.
“The experience was almost more than I could bear,” Kijera wrote about the incident, “I pleaded with him to honor my commitment to Haiti, to him as a brother in the mutual struggle for an end to our common oppression, but to no avail. He didn’t care.”
According to Kijera, she eventually stopped fighting him, claiming that there was nothing she could do to stop him from raping her repeatedly.
I have not heard of this case. It happened back in 2010 and as with any rape, it is disgusting and makes my blood boil.
Ms. Kijera is a political activist and according to the article she “was actually in Haiti to dispel the “myths” that violence against women on the island was overstated by women’s rights organizations. The intention of Kijera’s trip was to push back on the portrayal of black men as “savages” in the media.” This self-delusion that a particular racial group is more inclined or less inclined to do something or another because they are of a special color/race is not uncommon on people who have strong political beliefs.
Clint Smith said you don’t know what your attacker will look like and that is possibly one of God’s biggest truths. Observing attitude, & body language plus the good old gut feeling will give you a better detection system than a prejudiced or politicized attitude.
I think it was Delf “Jelly” Bryce who said “Meet everybody with a smile on your face and murder in your heart.” It is kind of extreme way to express that you simply should not trust anybody you know and must be prepared to defend yourself no matter how they look.
Here is an example:
This image should be known to all. Charlie Manson had 8 people killed by his followers. He is the pure look of Evil.
YOU CANNOT TELL WHAT EVIL LOOKS LIKE.
