Of course, the issue has nothing to do with black men impersonating white men, as the title suggests. Rather, the actual story centers on an Arab man who was just convicted of rape in Israel and sentenced to 18 months in prison.
Did he force himself on his “victim”? No.
Was she incapacitated through substance abuse and he took advantage of her? No.
Was she underage, a minor who was taken advantage of by someone of greater size/age/authority? No.
Did the girl want to have sex with him? Yes.
Did she get so horrified when she learned that she just had consensual sex with an Arab that she decided to charge him with rape? Yes.
Was an Arab convicted for the crime of pretending he was a Jew? Yes.
Unbelievable! I cannot even believe I have to write this.
According to Yediot Ahronot (Note: Google translation of original Hebrew), the judge recognized this was not a case of rape, but explained that the Arab’s impersonation of a Jew to try and win over the girl amounted to a violent scheme to overcome her “opposition”. Because, of course, she would naturally be “opposed” to his advances if she knew he was “only” an Arab rather than a full-fledged human—a Jew.
Poor guy, all he did was express in a “significant romantic relationship”, as was explained in court.
The apartheid judge went on to explain the functions of the court in protecting the overlords from their lustful minions:
“The court must protect the public interest against sophisticated criminals who use sweet, slippery tongues to deceive innocent victims, with the price paid by sanctity of body and spirit.”
Indeed, consensual sex between two adults supposedly interested in long-term romance violates apartheid’s dictums for “sanctity of body and spirit”. . . . but only when the two parties come from different sides of the psychological segregation barrier.
