White woman raped by black man but grateful for the experience

The stupidity of some white women is astounding.This civic journalist and activist in Haiti (that alone should start ringing warning bells as to her mental status) was raped by a black man in Haiti and yet she is grateful for the experience as she can now relate to what her fellow sisters are going through. Not only is she grateful, but she manages to turn it all around and blame the white male for causing black men to want to rape! I'm still shaking my head in disbelief, but, if you haven't had your breakfast yet and have a strong stomach, please go ahead and read this drivel from another person of our race that is living in guilt infested lala-land. Pity he didn't do us all a favor and dispatch her to her Utopia where she could forever live amongst the fairies and trolls.

By Amanda Kijera, civic journalist and activist in Haiti

Two weeks ago, on a Monday morning, I started to write what I thought was a very clever editorial about violence against women in Haiti. The case, I believed, was being overstated by women’s organizations in need of additional resources. Ever committed to preserving the dignity of Black men in a world which constantly stereotypes them as violent savages, I viewed this writing as yet one more opportunity to fight “the man” on behalf of my brothers. That night, before I could finish the piece, I was held on a rooftop in Haiti and raped repeatedly by one of the very men who I had spent the bulk of my life advocating for.

It hurt. The experience was almost more than I could bear. I begged him to stop. Afraid he would kill me, 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 that I was a Malcolm X scholar. He told me to shut up, and then slapped me in the face. Overpowered, I gave up fighting halfway through the night.

Accepting the helplessness of my situation, I chucked aside the Haiti bracelet I had worn so proudly for over a year, along with it, my dreams of human liberation. Someone, I told myself, would always be bigger and stronger than me. As a woman, my place in life had been ascribed from birth. A Chinese proverb says that “women are like the grass, meant to be stepped on.” The thought comforted me at the same time that it made me cringe.

A dangerous thought. Others like it have derailed movements, discouraged consciousness and retarded progress for centuries. To accept it as truth signals the beginning of the end of a person–or community’s–life and ability to self-love. Resignation means inertia, and for the past two weeks I have inhabited its innards. My neighbors here include women from all over the world, but it’s the women of African descent, and particularly Haitian women, who move me to write now.

Truly, I have witnessed as a journalist and human rights advocate the many injustices inflicted upon Black men in this world. The pain, trauma and rage born of exploitation are terrors that I have grappled with every day of my life. They make one want to strike back, to fight rabidly for what is left of their personal dignity in the wake of such things. Black men have every right to the anger they feel in response to their position in the global hierarchy, but their anger is misdirected.

Women are not the source of their oppression; oppressive policies and the as-yet unaddressed white patriarchy which still dominates the global stage are. Because women–and particularly women of color–are forced to bear the brunt of the Black male response to the Black male plight, the international community and those nations who have benefitted from the oppression of colonized peoples have a responsibility to provide women with the protection that they need.

The United Nations, western women’s organizations and the Haitian government must immediately provide women in Haiti with the funding that they need to build domestic violence and rape crisis centers. Stop dividing Black families by distributing solely to women, which only exaggerates male resentment and frustration in Haiti. Provide both women and men with job training programs that would allow for self-sufficiency as opposed to continued dependency on whites. Lastly, admit that the issue of racial integration might still need addressing on an international level, and then find a way to address it!

I went to Haiti after the earthquake to empower Haitians to self-sufficiency. I went to remind them of the many great contributions that Afro-descendants have made to this world, and of their amazing resilience and strength as a people. Not once did I envision myself becoming a receptacle for a Black man’s rage at the white world, but that is what I became. While I take issue with my brother’s behavior, I’m grateful for the experience. It woke me up, made me understand on a deeper level the terror that my sisters deal with daily. This in hand, I feel comfortable in speaking for Haitian women, and for myself, in saying that we will not be your pawns, racially, politically, economically or otherwise.

We are women, not weapons of war. Thankfully, there are organizations here in Haiti who continues to fight for women’s human rights like, MADRE, SOFA and Enfofanm.

Rather than allowing myself to be used in such a fashion, and as opposed to submitting to the frustration and bitterness that can be born of such an experience, I choose to continue to love and educate instead. My brothers can be sensitized to women’s realities in Haiti and the world over if these are presented to them by using their own clashes with racism and oppression as a starting point.

They must be made to understand the dangerous likelihood of the oppressed becoming the oppressor if no shift in consciousnesses takes place and if no end to the cycle of trauma occurs. I intend to see that it does…by continuing to live and work fearlessly with justice in mind, through the creation of a safe space for women in Haiti and by creating programming for Haitian men that considers their needs, too. Weapons annihilate, dialogue bears fruit.

It’s the fruit I’m interested in now, no matter how strange or bruised it might appear.

  1. Seriously hazardous to your health reading this! There should be a word to describe this kind of mental illness. I'll start by at least giving it a name "Amybhielism"

  3. Yep, sure does look like those “stereotypes” about black violence were nothing but racist fantasy.

    Liberalism is a mental disorder, and this white woman is plagued by it.

    However, unlike the left, who have been celebrating the horrific murder of Richard Barrett, I take no comfort in seeing violence befall anyone, liberal or otherwise. It’s sad that this woman has been so poisoned by Cultural Marxism that she would put herself into a position that jeopardizes her life.

    When will they see the light?

  6. I don't know about the "liberal" and "Marxist stuff that some people are talking about here, but I can tell you that rape isn't something that is acted out by black men as a violent protest against the white patriarchy. Rape is something that occurs wherever there is lawlessness. It occurred in Berlin when the Soviets overran the Germans in WWII. It occurred at Woodstock 1999 when there was pandemonium in the mosh pit. It occurs whenever mobs of prisoners riot. It occurs when masses of Kenyan schoolboys mob all-girls schools. It occurred when Thai pirates boarded Vietnamese refugee boats in the late 1970s. To say that the Haitian man who raped her was doing it as a subconscious form of rebellion against white is just ridiculous.

  8. Rape is a crime of opportunity. Any society in upheaval will experience an uptick in rapes because men who already have violence in their hearts realize they can get away with it. It sounds like she's struggling to fit the attack into political worldview, but it just doesn't fit. Her rapist didn't do what he did to express some abstracted rage against whitey; he did it simply because she was there and he could. People are responsible for the evil in their own hearts.

    White women like black men because they are so much bigger than white men,their cocks are thicker and so much longer and once a white woman has had a black man inside her she never wants a white man again.I was raped by a black man and it was so enjoyable that I stroke black cocks whenever I get the chance!

    White women are responsible for every rape that is going on in this world.
    White women are sex addicts , they love change and are not loyal as black women.

    To Anon Nov 17 go to hell you piece of horse manure.

    Women are not responsible for rape!!!!!!!
    Its all about the domination (and sex) for men. Women do not ask for or beg for rape but are in those unfortunate circumstances because of sick men. These men who rape IMHO are psychologically dis-functional and it causes them to act out in this terrible way.

    As for the Civic Journalist er... She really needed to reword that article

    Another thing. The only way a man can EVER understand the terrible effects of rape is to be ...

    You got the idea. Also the fact that rape seems to be glorified in movies doesn't help the matter at all. These movies create the illusion that women secretly like to be raped. That makes no sense. The trauma and physical effects of rape cannot in any way shape or form could be thought of as desirable. And if you think women (black, white ...etc) want to be raped then STFU and go jump off cliff.

    This woman is grateful for the experience?? She's a sick bitch and needs some serious psychiatric help. Most women would want to kill the bastard who raped them. They'd also get the hell out of Haiti if it happened under these circumstances...but not this pathetic, ridiculous woman. I wonder if she's had any additional gratifying experiences down there since she wrote this drivel.
