The most disgusting thing about this situation (besides the rape and the racial slurs, of course) is how the mainstream media continues to reduce the victim to a "stripper" or "exotic dancer."

Last time I checked she was a mother, a student, a WOMAN.

As if her attackers didn't dehumanize her enough....

It is as if the media says that by labeling the victim as a "stripper" they then protect the innocence of the accused.....surely they didn't do it, after all she is a "stripper" It is a shame that it is that which keeps many from getting the justice they deserve!

Hmmmm... that last one has me wondering.

But you realize, of course, "sex workers" can't be raped. It's part of the job description. That's what they all seem to think.
