By: Leon Kwasi Kuntuo-Asare
A suspected White supremacist punched a Black pastor in South Africa. The assualt reportedly happened on June 21, after the suspect reached into the car of Johannesburg pastor, Ron Rambebu, from Greater Glory International ministries, and brutally punched the man in the face several times.
Witnesses said the group that man was with were reportedly upset the pastor had a EFF cap, which is an acronym for Economic Freedom Fighters, a political party in South Africa.
Witnesses said the suspect and his group allegedly also, called the pastor a “Kaffir “, which is a South African word that is the equivalent of the “N word” in America.
At the end of the month the turned himself into the police.
According to the Atlanta Black Star:
” Police Capt. Kay Makhubela told the Johannesburg newspaper The Times that the man was detained at a police station on Friday morning and had been charged with assualt to cause grievous bodily harm”.
In late 2018 Pope Francis, while speaking about victims of church sexual abuse, said:
“the pain of the victims and their families is also our pain, and so it is urgent that we once more reaffirm our commitment to ensure the protection of minors and of vulnerable adults”.
Despite, that statement by the leader of the Catholic church, which could sound inspirational to advocates for victims of sexual abuse, the church actually spent over $10 million dollars lobbying against bills that could make the church responsible criminally and civilly for the heinous crimes of their clergy.
According to a new study that was revealed by CBS News, in the eastern part of the United States, between the years 2011-2018 the church spent:
$5,322,979 in Pennsylvania
$2,912,772 in New York
$875,261 in Connecticut
$633,458 in New Jersey
$537,551 in Massachusetts
$134,345 in New Hampshire
$124,260 in Maine
$61,961 in Maine
Over $10.6 million in total to challenge bills that if passed into law, could challenge the current restrictions on the statute of limitations and make it a lot easier for adults who were sexually abused as kids to seek justice in a criminal and or civil court against the Catholic church.
Apparently, you can’t camp while Black in Mississippi, well, I guess you can, but you take the chance of getting shot by an elderly hillbilly-looking version of Barbara Bush or the Queen of England.
That almost happened to a Black couple who decided to go camping in rural Mississippi, in a town called, Starkville, which is around Oktibbeha County Lake. The area they heard is a good destination for people who like to go fishing or swimming.
A few minutes after the couple(Jessica and Franklin Richardson) arrived, they claim they were confronted by an elderly White woman, who started pointing a very large revolver at them.
According to The Root Dot Com:
“Not five mins later a truck pulls up and a white lady screams at us, she then jumps out of her truck with a Gun. And proceeded to point it at the 3 of us, simply because we didn’t make reservations,” Jessica wrote on the Facebook video’s caption.
The camp grounds were reportedly privately owned by a company called Kampgrounds of America, and they allegedly needed a reservation before entering the area, that lack of information nearly cost them their lives.
“Keep your damn hands to yourself” is a term that should viewed as law of the land in America, no matter your race, gender or sexual orientation, no one should be allowed to feel they can batter another person because of an argument or disagreement and not have to deal with repercussions. That being said what people should do is often the opposite of what people actually do.
Without a doubt domestic violence is a major issue in the United States, straight, bi, gay, Transgender, male, female, all these subgroups of the American population, have people in their group who have committed assault and battery on their loved ones, which proves that domestic violence is not a male vs. female issue, rather it’s a humanity issue, that needs to be addressed in the proper and educated manner.
Instead the major media corporations continue to omit the fact that men make up about 40% of domestic violence victims, in an article titled: “More than 40% of domestic violence victims are male, report reveals” by the Guardian.com and published on September 4, 2010 stated : “Data from home office statistical bulletins and the British crime survey show that men made up about 40% of domestic violence victims each year between 2004-5 and 2008-9”.
SNL SPOOF ON SOLANGE ATTACK OF JAY Z.
Instead when a woman hits a man it’s a joke on Saturday night live like when Solange Knowles , the sister of R&B/pop diva Beyonce and sister-in-law to rap legend and music mogul Jay Z, decided to punch and kick her brother-in-law in a tight elevator, while she was wearing dangerously sharp high heels.
Media companies like DISNEY/ABC/ESPN for the most part simply ignored the fact that women’s WorldCup Soccer player Hope Solo has been involved in at least two cases of domestic violence in which she was the aggressor.
The media instead downplays or ignores domestic violence committed by women to focus months on the issue of violence committed by men, especially black men, even if it was in self-defense against a crazed and violent woman, e.g. the Ray rice incident when he punched his then girlfriend/now wife in the face after she pimped slap him or the FSU quarterback De’andre Johnson, who punched a woman in a bar after she reportedly yelled racial slurs at him and is on video seen punching him .
Both male Football players so far have had their careers cut short, while Solange is more famous now after she attacked Jay Z and Hope Solo just won a WorldCup and is expected to be in the FIFA 2016 video game.
So to my fellow Americans, I think we can all agree that domestic violence is horrific, so lets just have one standard that domestic violence is wrong and the aggressor should be punished, no matter their sex, race or sexual orientation.
