Serena Williams On The Steubenville, Ohio, Rape Case – Bitch Had It Comin’

Wednesday, June 19th, 2013

When asked about her opinion on the Steubenville, Ohio, rape case, tennis star Queen Latifa Serena Williams had this to say:

“They did something stupid, but I don’t know,’ she told the magazine. ‘I’m not blaming the girl, but if you’re a 16-year-old and you’re drunk like that, your parents should teach you—don’t take drinks from other people.’

‘She’s 16, why was she that drunk where she doesn’t remember? It could have been much worse. She’s lucky. Obviously I don’t know, maybe she wasn’t a virgin, but she shouldn’t have put herself in that position, unless they slipped her something, then that’s different.’

It’s not that Serena Williams is wrong, she just happens to be right for the wrong reasons. True dat, a young woman shouldn’t have taken drinks from other people the night she was repeatedly raped, and true dat she shouldn’t have put herself in that position. But just because the young woman was drunk and in that position doesn’t automatically qualify her as a contestant in the rape-athon game perpetrated by a couple of sick, twisted malcontents.

Any parent of a young girl has had the “don’t take drinks from other people” talk, that’s a given. Whether the young girl heeds that advice is a totally different matter. Most of the time kids will be kids, and girls drink and get drunk, but when that happens, it’s up to her friends – boys and girls – to take care of them and make sure nothing bad happens to them. Friends or strangers alike know, when a young kid gets wasted, you don’t take advantage of them, let alone repeatedly rape, videotape, post video on social networks and brag to friends about your crime. Surprisingly enough, Serena doesn’t mention that the parents of the young men never talked to them about how they should never take advantage of young women when they are drunk, let alone rape them, video tape them, etc.

Instead of saying that rape is never right under any circumstance, a famous athlete with an automatic built-in anti-rape face takes to the news to tell the world that a rape victim was actually “lucky” nothing worse happened to her. But that’s the type of society we have bred. The people who are most famous and looked at as hero’s are often dumber than a box of rocks, have a moral compass set on stupid, and talk crap because they are incapable of forming reasonable thoughts.

If Serena is right, and the girl in question shouldn’t have been in that position, then maybe we should have cut James Earl Ray some slack because Martin Luther King put himself in a bad position. If only King had ducked.

Roberto Alomar Is Being Sued

Wednesday, February 11th, 2009

In a lawsuit filed by his ex-girlfriend, Ilyna Dall contends that Roberto Alomar had sex with her even though he knew he had full blown AIDS:

In papers filed in state and federal court, Dall said Alomar finally was tested in January 2006 while suffering from a cough, fatigue and shingles, the Daily News reported.

“The test results of him being HIV-positive was given to him and the plaintiff on or about February 6, 2006,” the $15 million negligence suit read.

Soon after, the couple went to see a disease specialist, who discovered a mass in the retired second baseman’s chest, the court papers stated.

Alomar’s skin had turned purple, he was foaming at the mouth and a spinal tap “showed he had full-blown AIDS,” the suit said.

A 12-time All-Star, he won 10 Gold Gloves and was named the MVP of the American League Championship Series in 1992.

Wow, that is simply amazing. To say I’m shocked is an understatement, I’m completely blown away. I actually can’t believe what I just read. It’s pretty hard for me to wrap my head around this, I am fully and completely startled at this news. I always thought Alomar was an 11-Time All-Star, not a 12-Time All Star. My world seems to be spinning out of control.
