BABY-RAPE in South Africa

CB052484I read about this several year ago.  It was an obscure little passage in the news paper.  It never did get very much attention.  Why? I don’t know.  This is by far the most apauling thing that I have ever heard of.  “Raping Babies to Cure Aids”.  And it is still happening.

There is a  bizarre belief among many African black men that sex with a virgin — even a child or baby — can cure HIV/AIDS is fueling what is already one of the highest child sexual exploitation rates in the world.

According to the latest report by South Africa’s Police Service, children are the victims of 41 percent of all rapes and attempted rapes reported in the country. Over 15 percent of all reported rapes are against children under 11, and another 26 percent against children 12-17. For the year 2000, some 58 children were raped or the victims of rape attempts in South Africa every single day.

The trend is worsening. Babies as young as only a few months old are being raped almost daily. Many black South African men infected with AIDS erroneously believe that by having sex with a virgin — even a baby — they will be cured of AIDS or their HIV infection.

The incidents of baby rape in South Africa are truly horrifying. Reports by the South African Press Association contain items such as these:

     

  • On Nov. 11, a nine-month-old baby girl from Kimberley in the Northern Cape who survived a gang rape underwent a full hysterectomy and will require further surgery to repair intestinal damage, a hospital spokesperson said. The baby from Louisville was left unattended by her 16-year-old mother when six Upington men allegedly raped her. The baby had undergone a full hysterectomy and she suffered extensive damage to her colon and anus as well The six men, aged between 22 and 66, appeared in the Kimberley Magistrates Court on charges of rape and indecent assault on Monday.
  •  
  • This past Halloween, on October 31, a month-old baby girl was raped, allegedly by her uncles, in Tweeling in the Eastern Free State Police spokesperson Loraine Kalp said the mother of the child had left the baby in the care of the men when she went to visit her mother-in-law. Upon her return last night, she found the baby crying and as she lifted her, she saw blood on her bottom. She then took the baby to a clinic where she was told the girl had been raped and sustained vaginal damage. In other reported cases, rapists have gone beyond penile penetration, using objects including broken bottle tops, sticks or harmful liquids that are pushed or inserted into the victim’s vagina. But police now say these brutal criminals are sure to be arrested and positively linked to their crimes. 

 

Equally shocking is the growing phenomenon of black babies with AIDS being thrown away in dumps around the nation, say South Africa police intelligence officials.

This is the saddest thing that I have ever heard of.  I don’t understand why it hasn’t gotten more media attention. and why the United States and Human Rights Activists haven’t gotten involved.

Britney Spears – Oops She Did It Again

britney-spears-singing-with-tampon-string-hanging-downLovely Britney Spears seems to always have a problem with “that time of the month.”  A few short months ago while on her Circus tour, she had a wardrobe malfunction when a string to her tampon was clearly visible hanging out from her outfit.   Now during a magazine shoot for Elle magazine she apparently decided not to use a tampon and the shoot came to a yucky sticky end.   Eww…..How to you forget what time of the month it is?   Hey Britney, get one of those Depo shots, then you won’t even have that time of the month every month…..Eww….

Judge Sonia Sotmayor, WHAT WAS OBAMA THINKING !

sotomayor_052609I have personally stayed away from this subject of  Judge Sonia Sotomayor being nominated for Supreme Court by none other than President Obama.  I do know that many people instantly started defending her against racial and gender biased comments before any comments had even been made.  In my experience this usually happens in an attempt to hide unfavorable information and to warn anyone who may speak negatively about a particular subject.  From the research that I have done, Judge Sotomayor is a very intelligent and well edjucated woman with the experiance and “cohoonas” to match!  There is no doubt that she is extremely qualified for the position for which she has been nominated. 

When I first began debating with my co-horts over this subject I was uneducated about Judge Sotomayor’s  judicial record, therefore felt unqualified to form opinions concerning her capabilities.  I do, however, have a fair understanding of  right from wrong.  Since this matter had already been divided along lines of race and gender, I debated that there was no question that this nominee was qualified for the position but was she the “most” qualified.  I asked if there was another candidate that was possibly overlooked that was more qualified because of their gender or her ethnic heritage.  I was then bombarded with slurs from those who support her nomination.  Since a debate consists of presenting opposing views I held my ground.  Otherwise it would have turned  into a conversation rather than a debate. 

I presented that a team is only as strong as its weakest link.  America is after all a team. If we start accepting people of lesser qualifications due to their gender or racial background we all suffer. There is no substitution for quality in any aspect of your government.  

There are some racist people out there in the world, sure!  However, there are a lot of people that are not racist that have legitimate concerns about the direction that the direction that our country is heading. Not just the government but the whole United States.

If you have two people that are ( equally ) qualified for a position, I can see selecting someone who is of a minority race or the gender that is not equally represented in that forum. However, when you have two people that are not ( equally ) qualified for a position and the person who is less qualified receives the job because of their race or gender then it is wrong.

Rep. Lamar Smith, R-Texas, in a written statement, said Tuesday he’s concerned Sotomayor has shown “personal bias based on ethnicity and gender.” 

“Judge Sotomayor will need to reassure the country that she will set aside her biases, uphold the rule of law and interpret the Constitution as written, not as she believes it should have been written,” said Smith, who will have no vote in the matter, as the confirmation is a Senate matter.

Perhaps Sotomayor’s most controversial decision was in Ricci v. DeStefano, in which she was part of a panel ruling against a group of white firefighters in New Haven, Conn. — they objected after the city threw out the results of a promotion test because too many white firefighters, and not enough minority firefighters, scored high. 

She and two other judges summarily dismissed the case without tackling the complex issues outlined in stacks of briefs and debated in extended oral arguments. Instead, the court issued an unsigned, one-paragraph opinion. Sotomayor’s colleague, Judge Jose Cabranes, was so concerned that he wrote a lengthy dissent highlighting what many saw as an attempt to bury the case. 

“This perfunctory disposition rests uneasily with the weighty issues presented by this appeal,” he wrote. 

The discrimination case was later kicked up to the Supreme Court, and a decision is expected by late June. 

Sotomayor has a record of being rebuffed by the high court. Of the six decisions she was a part of that came before the high court, five were reversed. In the sixth, the court disagreed with Sotomayor’s reasoning. 

Senior administration officials said they have no concerns about the reversal rate or Sotomayor’s position in the firefighter case. But that and other cases are now ripe for analysis. 

— In one case reversed by the Supreme Court, Sotomayor and the majority on the appeals court ruled that an inmate could sue a private corporation for injuries he suffered in a halfway house run by that company. Though the company operated the house on behalf of the Bureau of Prisons, Sotomayor argued that the company was not shielded from liability. The Supreme Court reversed the appeals court decision in 2001. 

— In another case, Sotomayor dissented in a 2006 opinion that rejected a challenge to a New York law denying convicted felons the right to vote. She argued in her own dissenting opinion that the state law “disqualifies a group of people from voting.” 

— Sotomayor, in 2003, also wrote an opinion that reversed a district court decision that a Muslim inmate’s rights were not violated when he was denied a holiday feast. Sotomayor argued that the inmate’s First Amendment rights were violated because the feast was important to his religion. 

— In 1999, Sotomayor dissented in a decision to dismiss a case in which a black student claimed his school discriminated against him by transferring him mid-year from first grade to kindergarten. Sotomayor argued that the “lone black child” in the class was not given an “equal chance.” 

— In 2007, Sotomayor wrote an opinion holding that the Environmental Protection Agency could not perform a cost-benefit analysis to determine the “best technology available.” She wrote it could only consider cost as a factor in more limited ways. This decision, too, was overturned by the Supreme Court. 

— In 1993, Sotomayor threw out evidence obtained by police in a drug case, because a detective lied to obtain the search warrant — prosecutors agreed to a plea bargain. However, during sentencing Sotomayor made controversial statements by criticizing the five-year mandatory sentence, calling it an “abomination” that the defendant did not deserve.

I am glad to lve in America.  As a woman I have the opportunity to become whatever I may want to become.  I look to Sonia Mayor as both a roll model and in inspiration not only to me but to all women.  She stands as a shinning example of what a woman and someone of a minority heritage can achieve in America.  After reading and researching many of her cases, however, I must question the validity of her nomination to the Supreme Court and the intentions of President Obama who chose her.  It doesn’t seem logical to me that a “person” not a “woman or Hispanic” who has had to have so many decisions overturned and that is obviously bias should have been nominated.
