RALEIGH, North Carolina (BNW) —
What does the Duke rape case and Don Imus’ remarks about the Rutgers’ women basketball team have in common? In both cases some nappy-headed hos’ were raped by a culture of white men who have made a habit of raping Black women for over four hundred years in this country.

What in the Hell you think slavery was all about, labor? Hell NO... Rape! The rape of Black women! American slavery in the South was all about rape — getting free pussy!

We all know that the slave master had his way with the women slaves, and just imagine how many Black women were raped during slavery. I venture to say everyone. Black women are being raped in this country every day, and its being going on since American's antiquity as a nation to its modernity as a Super Power in the world. And as a result, how can Blacks forgive whites for what they have done to US?

Three student athletes accused of kidnapping and sexually assaulting a Black stripper at a Duke University lacrosse team party were cleared of all remaining criminal charges on this week, authorities said. Maybe dropping the sexual assault charges was the right thing to do, but the kidnapping charges are charges that should have gone before a jury… that’s the white man’s justice for you.

Prosecutors had earlier dropped rape charges against the men, all of whom are white, after their accuser told investigators she was uncertain about crucial details of the alleged assault at an off-campus house in Durham, North Carolina, in March 2006.

Closing the book on the case, which drew national attention, North Carolina Attorney General Roy Cooper said he was dropping outstanding charges of kidnapping and sexual assault against the men due to insufficient evidence.

"We have no credible evidence that an attack occurred in that house on that night," Cooper told a news conference in Raleigh, the state capital. While Cooper is so quick to find justice for a bunch of rich white boys, and insisted that a prosecutor’s job is to seek justice not convictions.

That’s something new in the Black community… why we always thought that the white prosecutor’s job was to get a conviction by hook of crook any Black men they can. Now that it’s some white boys charged with high crimes, justice is the order of the day in this country.

You rotten dirty dogs; the prosecutors in this country have made a living locking-up innocent Black men for nonviolent crimes. That’s why while Black men make about 7% of the US population; they make 70% of the prison population. Suck on that Cooper!

They got so many niggers locked-up in this country; they can make a million Tarzan movies. Some U.S. media had portrayed the case as a symbol of racial and class tensions in the U.S. South and the town where Duke is located and they were right.

But it unraveled quickly after laboratory tests found no trace of the defendants' DNA on the accuser and amid charges the original prosecutor had played up the case because he was seeking re-election.

"We believe that these cases were the result of a tragic rush to accuse and a failure to verify serious allegations," said Cooper.

"Based on the significant inconsistencies between the evidence and the various accounts given by the accusing witness, we believe these three individuals are innocent of these charges," he said.

"Today we are filing notices of dismissal for all charges against Reade Seligmann, Collin Finnerty and David Evans.

"The result is that these cases are over and no more criminal proceedings will occur.

"We believe that these cases were the result of a tragic rush to accuse and a failure to verify serious allegations. Based on the significant inconsistencies between the evidence and the various accounts given by the accusing witness, we believe these three individuals are innocent of these charges."

Seligmann, Evans and Finnerty were charged with first-degree kidnapping and first-degree sexual offense after an escort-service dancer accused them of raping her at a team party.

"Rape and sexual assault victims often have some inconsistencies in their account of a traumatic event," Cooper said. "However, in this case, the inconsistencies were so significant and so contrary to the evidence that we have no credible evidence that an attack occurred in that house on that night."
