Most F’ed Up Fact of the Day

I just learned this from the Students Active for Ending Rape website.

Whereas 80-90% of rapes are committed by someone of the same racial background as the victim, for American Indians, 90% of survivors report that their rapist is either white or black.
(US Dept. of Justice 1994, 1997)

Colonialism in action. 519 years later, this kind of rape is STILL happening.
