We’re all familiar with the usual progressive line about how the problems of Blacks in modern Western societies are all caused by the racist traumas they suffered under slavery and segregation a long time ago. A hundred years from now, future Black dysfunction might well be put down to the nightmares their forbears suffered under “White privilege” and the occasional “unkind” word.
But the traumas they suffered due to other Blacks will always be forgotten.
You see this phenomenon all the time in stories on Africa, like the recent report on African Union ‘peacekeepers’ in the failed state that is Somalia, sexually exploiting and raping, in an entirely predictable way, young women — some as young as twelve — who come under their control.
African Union (AU) troops raped women and girls seeking medical aid or water from their bases in Somalia’s capital, Mogadishu, a rights group says. The troops had ‘misused’ their power over women fleeing violence and poverty, Human Rights Watch (HRW) said. One Muslim girl, aged 15, reportedly had her headscarf ripped off before being raped. The AU, which has some 22,000 troops fighting militant Islamists in Somalia, says it will investigate the claims.
The AU will investigate the claims! Well, that’s reassuring, except for the fact that this will probably involve yet more sex-starved African soldiers interviewing nubile victims to, ahem, get at the truth. No doubt there will be yet further sexual exploitation and rape, some of which might even make thePakistani rape gangs of Rotherham seem like gentlemen by comparison.
