    for not addressing that issue.  Although I think (nowadays) it is not politically correct to claim a woman is making up a rape claim as it is a race claim.

      I'm thinking of a case I heard on a grand jury, and another case at my town's high school, where lots of people asserted that the women obviously must have consented to sex and then regretted it.

      But I don't mean to nit-pick your main point, which is that the race card is played extensively for political purposes. I'm just saying that unfortunately, women also get accused of falsely claiming to be a victim when they are raped.

      You have made great points in this diary. It is excellent. But when you make claims about political  correctness, being more on the side of 'rape', than 'race', it is just a loaded issue. And I disagree with you on this point. But I would rather not have that, mucking up my appreciation, of your fine diary.
