‘Rape Culture’ in Baltimore

More actual rape culture that campus feminists will never recognize: At a Northwest Baltimore middle school on Friday, three boys grabbed a 13-year-old girl who was skipping class and shoved her into a janitor’s closet, reports the Baltimore Sun. Two of the boys, both 14-years-old, performed sex acts on her, according to the police. The school is 93 percent black and 5.5 percent Hispanic. If we believed the civil-rights activists in education departments and the former Obama administration, any discipline imposed on students in this anarchic school will be the result of bias on the part of teachers and administrators, if similar measures are not imposed on white students. Those same liberal critics would move mountains to make sure that their children did not have to attend the school.
