The Myth of White on Black Rape finds its latest toilet.

You are on fire this month, Sigma.

Btw, I was 90% sure DSK was guilty because European men seem less inclined to have sex with black women than white Americans do and because DSK has been accused of sexual assault by French women in the past.

Were the charges dropped? This is the first time I've heard of this. If this is true, the behavior of DSK's wife looks more understandable. And if this was a dirty trick by his opponents in France to force him out of the race, it could boomerang badly.

"In another shocker, none of the three reporters appearing in the byline, Jim Dwyer, William K. Rashbaum and John Eligon, appear to be elite. Apparently the guys covering the New York City crime beat are the traditional middle-class type of reporter."

I'm increasingly convinced that elite journalists and pundits are the untalented children of talented elites and these journalists feel resentment against their elite classmates who DIDN'T regress to the mean.

While they are wealthy compared to the national average, top NYTimes journalists with their $90-100,000 salaries feel poor compared to the other New York City elites they hang out with.

In addition, like many liberal arts majors, they feel intellectually inferior to elite classmates who took cognitively demanding STEM courses and feel the need brag about their supposed intellectual abilities in a way top surgeons don't.

This explains so much of the bitterness and anger in the print media: The elite journalists deep down know they only got their journalist jobs because they were either too lazy or too mediocre to cut it at a demanding technical field, or even in business, and that they would be waitresses at Outback Steakhouse if mommy and daddy hadn't pulled strings at the NYTimes to give them a superficially "elite" job that really amounts to nothing more than mediocre and pretentious blogging in the op ed section.

In addition, the non-elite liberal media personalities (i.e. DailyKos bloggers and commenters, Huffpo bloggers, etc) who went to Ivy league schools to get their degrees in sociology and gender studies and wound up as nothing more than barristas at Starbucks because their parents were only upper class with 6 figure incomes instead of seven figures are bitter that they didn't get one of the handful of openings at the Times and that their great knowledge of post Colonial theory and Sartre goes unnoticed while hacks like Tom Friedman make millions.

Galaxy sized Inferiority complexes seems to be the key ingredient that fuels the bitterness and anger in elite liberal journalist circles.

European men seem less inclined to have sex with black women

That should be MORE inclined

"The Myth of White on Black Rape finds its latest toilet."

This is even rarer: Elite Jew violently rapes black woman.

When was the last time an elite Jew raped a black woman? Has that EVER happened in American history?

Btw, you're still wrong about DSK not being strong enough to overpower a tall woman.

A somewhat short middle aged man is perfectly capable of attacking a tall woman.

Sigma, why don't do some posts comparing the career trajectory and pedigrees of NYTimes reporters to DailyKos (and other liberal websity) bloggers?

They could easily both be guilty -- he didn't take no for an answer at some point (after she initially consented to something) and got rough AND she lied about it being totally non-consensual out of guilt and/or hopes of a lawsuit payday.

So you're not wrong but he's not innocent (though he may well get off or not get charged owing to her lying).

You were right. I give you credit.

"A somewhat short middle aged man is perfectly capable of attacking a tall woman."

I think we have to make a distinction between being able to attack - use surprise and strength to force down or hit for damage - and being able to keep a struggling 6 foot woman still long enough to get your kicks.

Unless the claim is that he knocked her out and she woke up afterwards...I haven't been paying attention to the story really, but it is interesting in that here is the French version of the 'elite' being taken down by a low class maid. Something tells me if a real journalist does some digging into the family of that maid, perhaps we'd find a large donation or "extremely good luck" occurring.

Damn but you're on the top of your game this month, Half.

Just imagine how much trouble could have been avoided had the police actually took time to investigate the claims made by the accuser before arresting DSK.

I was thinking about the elite/non-elite media figures: should you stop "outing" the non-elite media people?

They have worked hard to climb the ladder and are forced to do a 360-degree mimicry of elitism just to keep their jobs. They probably keep quiet on their backgrounds, work harder and longer than the people for whom losing the job won't matter, have been forced to adopt non-native language, speech pattern, look, diet, hobbies, views, etc.

By singling them out you might be stigmatizing completely innocent people in the workplace, even though you can make your point just by pointing out the ubiquity of the elite backgrounds of the people around them.

[HS: How is posting a link to their bio "outing" them? And the elites don't want their jobs anyway. The Yale guys don't want to cover crimes in the bad neighborhoods.]

If some prole white woman accused Barack Obama of savagely raping her, I'm sure the media would swiftly rally to her side.

I think TUJ is jelous. This is the third post in which he has bashed NYT journalists as mediocer bitter failures with rich mommies and daddies. But he is wrong. The NYT reporters profiled were not mediocre. Rampelle got a perfect SAT score for god's sake. Also the elite do not want to go into nor are they jelous of STEM fields. In fact they look down on them.

I am a student at the elite Unobersity of Michigan. My pafents make a nice 6 figure salery. We own antiques dating from the golden ages of Greece and the Roman Empire, and I have no student loans. My parents pay for my appartment in downtown Ann Arbor. I study physucs, but I would never be a lowly engineer. The point of that minnie bio is I know many people like those TUJ is talking about and their tastes. I am from the social class right below theirs and he is wrong about them.

I had my doubts about the case from the beginning, although, given DSK's history of womanizing, I wasn't totally convinced it was a fraud, but I thought it quite possible. I suspect they had consensual sex, maybe for money, and then she claimed she was raped. Maybe she planned it that way from the beginning, or maybe she thought it up on the spur of the moment or after to talking to one of her criminal friends. As we learned from the Duke Rape Hoax, white-on-black rape just about never happens.

@ Undiscovered Jew -

Superb comment.

Occam's razor says DSK=Duke lacrosse> prosecutorial overreach/zeal, etc. Boom, done. Usual practice for NY top legal brass: find headline worthy targets, then run for office.

Here's something slightly more paranoid, I wonder if you can explore it now that you are on fire with predictions:
(1) DSK was the leading candidate for the presidential nomination of the French socialists and the leading presidential candidate to beat Sarkozy in 2012.
(2) Sarkozy was head of the French police twice; I would guess lots of give-and-take with the secret services
(3) Sarkozy has been more or less friendly with the US, especially now with France doing lots of dirty work in Libya
(4) As a head of the IMF and a French presidential candidate, DSK might have been very tempted to stop the bailout of the French/German banks holding Greek debt (this is not a "Greece" bailout, this is bailing out Greek creditors with EU taxpayer money). These bailouts are hugely unpopular with the regular taxpayers/voters in W Eur.
(5) The opportunity to eliminate DSK comes when he has sex with the woman (note her vulnerable situation: lied to get asylum, involved with various criminals, possibly housing fraud = easy to have her do things if directed so by authority figures)
(6) DSK is arrested, presumed guilty by all media and indicted on May 18th 2011. DSK is now radioactive for life regardless of the actual facts.
(7) DSK pleads not guilty on June 6th 2011.
(8) Lisa Friel, head of sex crimes, is reported to have resigned (news published on June 29 2011)
(9) Christine Lagarde, the "establishment" IMF head candidate, is elected to replace DSK on June 29 2011 in what seemed like a disorganized replacement process
(10) Word is out that the case is in trouble on June 30 2011, with the NY press this morning calling the accuser a "con artist"
(11) Socialist party primary deadline is June 13th 2011
(12) DSK is due in court on July 18th 2011

Enough things to make you go "hm".

Now when they adapt this for SVU, it will be an African delegate to the UN gets accused by a Serbian hotel maid, who turns out to be a trafficking victim forced to do it by her drug dealer-pimp.

I too was skeptical from the beginning based simply on the fact that the accuser was a black girl and that she was accusing a white man of raping her.

Statistically speaking, black on white rape just doesn't happen.

Still, like Black Death, I was willing to allow a decent chance that the accusation had merit based on DSK's apparent sex issues. Also based on the (alleged) fact that he had left in a hurry and left his cell phone behind.

Anyway, even if the case is dropped, it's still somewhat possible that he sexually assaulted her but there wasn't a solid case. It's even possible that he paid her off. I wouldn't be shocked if she moved back to Africa and started living like a queen.

P.S. All of the above is just speculation so don't sue me for defamation!!

[HS: How is posting a link to their bio "outing" them? And the elites don't want their jobs anyway. The Yale guys don't want to cover crimes in the bad neighborhoods.]

The elites don't want their jobs but the non-elites want the elite jobs. For them, reporting on crime for the NYT is the foot in the door: they will pay their dues and move on to nicer things. If you look at reporters of modest backgrounds that have gone on to become "forces" in the business (ie Charlie Gasparino), they have done plenty of toilet cleaning prior to the big break. Specifically highlighting their backgrounds in what I am sure is a widely read series by visitors from the NYT is not helping them, IMO. I worked at a bulge-bracket investment bank, and you are partially judged on origins.

Lol, "black on white rape" should be "white on black rape" in my last post.

Anon55, this is more than "enough things to make you go 'hm'. When you lay out your timeline like that, it is pretty transparent what is happening.

Getting a difficult person out of the way of both the Presidency of France and head of the IMF with one dirty trick is pretty impressive. But I've noticed an increase in this sort of stuff recently. And I'm wondering if its really good tactics on the part of the "establishment". What if this gets linked to Sarkozy? And DSK would have had to resign to run for President of France anyway, and Sarkozy might have won the election anyway. Was this really necessary.

There are some similarities to the situation with Spitzer, except that Spitzer actually did what he was accused of doing, it just never should have been a resigning offence. But Spitzer is out of the way, New York State politics and Wall Street are still putrid. They still will go down eventually if things aren't cleaned up. At the most, these tactics buy TPTB some time.

The DSK case is just another example of the pervasive misandry in the USA. Countless men across the nation have had their lives and careers ruined by false rape and harassment allegations.

Can anyone point me to a genuine white male on black female rape?

Also, you are wrong about the woman being able to overpower a short, fat 60-year-old man. I do grappling and kickboxing and even the strongest women are not match for even an average man.

If a woman knows how to fight she can beat a man who does not know how to fight. But most people (like 99%) cannot fight.

[HS: A six foot tall black woman is stronger than the average woman, and a sixty year old unathletic man is weaker than the average man. He may still be stronger than her, but probably not strong enough to rape her if she put up any struggle.]

"Sigma, why don't do some posts comparing the career trajectory and pedigrees of NYTimes reporters to DailyKos (and other liberal websity) bloggers?"

Daily Kos is full of nobodies and tons of them are anonymous. A better comparison would be the NYT to Slate or Salon.

There's still the matter of DSK trying to leave the country with nothing but the shirt on his back. He even left his cell phone behind in the hotel suite.

Or was that all a fabrication?

[HS: A six foot tall black woman is stronger than the average woman, and a sixty year old unathletic man is weaker than the average man. He may still be stronger than her, but probably not strong enough to rape her if she put up any struggle.]

Maybe if she is 6', 185. But being from Africa she is likely a beanpole.

In the movies women beat up men all the time with roundhouse kicks and witty quips as they walk away.

In real life, a man the size, age and shape of Kahn would be able to rape most women if he really had a mind to. The absolute first thing you notice when sparring with a woman - every woman I have sparred with - is the lack of upper body strength and explosiveness.

Next time, maybe DSK won't try to have sex with a bleeping black hotel maid. Don't these people have any standards? What's up with all these high-powered people going after the dregs of society? Fuck people of your own class - maybe they won't be so willing to tell on you.

In the DSK case, the only victim is the French Socialist party and the French People. DSK is just the "weak link".

The french presidential campaign is the main theater of this affair.

Last friday was indeed a moment of truth; DA's office knew just too well since May 15, that DSK was going to be released.

Remember that the french community in the USA is a small one. Its easy to bash!

@Bernie:
Diallo claimed that she managed to run away twice, almost managing to escape and that DSK dragged her back to the bed twice. A long legged young african woman is certainly faster than a short legged, fat, old man, who looks like he would get a near heart-attack merely from taking the stairs instead of the elevator.

As deeww already pointed out, we are talking about an alleged rape, not an attempted murder or beat down.

There are no Steven Seagals and Jackie Chans doing roundhouse kicks and witty quips in real life either.

Human-Stupidity was right about Dominique Strauss Kahn, too!! This was also published at InMalaFide.com

False Rape charges by trespassing maid against IMF Managing Director Dominique Strauss-Kahn?

Check the lastest news about this guy. In France he is being charged with assault.
