sunnubian ·
So, if they don't see what the big deal is, then why did they not have a "White trash" party or a "Mill Hill" party, or and "Inbred Hillbilly" party or a "Becky" party? Or, maybe the Black students should have one of those parties and dare the White students to be insulted. But, isn't it just like racist White people, always trying to downplay something that they know is racist, or justify something they do sheerly out of racism.

Re: This is one of the reasons why we should lift our voices LOUD...Eye-Opening Social Experiment Sheds Spotlight On Horrors Of Child Marriage

sunnubian ·
It's a shame that women and girls are still seen as personal property in so many cultures and religions, which makes them the equivalent to chattel slaves. Whatever laws still coincidentally on the books in America that may make it legal for any adult male to marry a 12-year-old girl, should be immediately removed, rendered null in void. But, America is not that far removed from child-marriages because it was not uncommon for women to be married before their 18th birthday as little as a few...

Okay. I have been nice in not bringing up the legacy of prostitution and sex slavery that originated in the Jewish, Arab, Asian and European cultures.
