    South African Judge Says Rape Is a Part of Black Culture in Exposed Facebook Conversation
    By Kathleen Wong 5 days ago

    A racist Facebook conversation South African High Court Judge Mabel Jansen had last year with social rights activist Gillian Schutte was publicly posted by Schutte on Saturday, according to the Independent, and has led to a complaint being filed to South Africa's Judicial Service Commission.

    In the Facebook exchange, Jansen said that rape is a part of black culture. "In their culture a woman is there to pleasure them," Jansen wrote. "Gang rapes of baby, daughter and mother is a pleasurable pastime," she added. She also said that she still has yet "to meet a black girl who was not raped at about 12."

    Schutte's reasoning for posting the conversation is to show how systemic racism still is in a "post-liberation South Africa," which stems from "colonial tropes" that "undermine black movements and individuals who pose a threat to the status quo ... to the detriment of women who are victims of rape," according to her post.

    On Sunday, Jansen defended herself on Twitter, saying that what she "stated confidentially to somebody in a position to help has been taken completely out of context and referred to specific court cases." But Schutte said in her Facebook post it was an "inboxed version" of what Jansen already said in a public Facebook discussion.

    A petition to remove Jansen has been circulating online, and #MabelJansen has become a trending hashtag in South Africa, according to the BBC.

    "Her comments made on Facebook where she claims that the rape of young children is part of black culture, are purely racist and misrepresentation of facts about black culture," the ruling African National Congress' women's league said in a statement, according to theIndependent.

    Following the complaint, the Judicial Service Commission will execute an investigation to see if Jansen's comments breach her judicial oath, the Independent reported.

    The truth should be an absolute defense. If what she says is an accurate reflection of what she's witnessed as a judge in South Africa, then there should be no sanctions. On the other hand, if what she says can be proven untrue, then it's reasonable to expect that there be some consequences for her actions. Pretty simple really. The hard part is in determining how far you're willing to go to accumulate accurate statistics on the incidence of rape in the black South African community.

    Yeah I'm sure Wendy or Gary the Conqueror could have thought out, prepared, stated and explained their opinions as eloquently as he did.

    Dummy.

    You used thought provoking and informed logic with your synopsis. Which, clearly means you are the obvious retard.

    Now had you said something as eloquent as 'it's all whitey's fault', he'd probably have hit the like button. Being so tolerant and all.

    I used to work with a woman from South Africa, it sounds like a horrible place. Her family was very wealthy and lived on a large ranch in the middle of nowhere. Their living area was surrounded by a high fence with razor wire and they had to hire an army of security guards to protect them from groups of local villagers who would try to get into the compound to attack them and steal. The only police in that area were from the same tribes as the criminals and did nothing to help, another family who previously had a ranch nearby was murdered. She was sent to school in Europe and never went back.
