Re: “Pittsburgh Left: Pittsburgh Pirates' Jung Ho Kang should sit during sexual-assault investigation

Here's the thing Be Reasonable, I have heard of the Duke LaCrosse case. Have you ever heard of Bill Cosby? His accusers were dismissed and waved away for decades? What about Brock Turner, the Stanford student and once-likely future olympian who raped a woman behind a dumpster and was sentenced to just six months in the county jail? What about the rape epidemic on college campuses. A lot of times even when sexual assault is reported schools act improperly. Of course we should wait to pass judgement on Kang until all the facts are in. But it's time we stop treating rape and sexual assault cases in this country like it is just like any other crime. Benching him with pay doesn't hurt Kang. It happens in other jobs and work places across the country. Everyone is quick to say that Kang deserves his due process, and I agree. But why is it that no one thinks the victim deserves special dispensation. Just as you folks are asking me to stop acting like Jung Ho Kang is guilty -- which I'm not -- I'd ask you to stop acting that the victim might be lying. Give her the same benefit of the doubt you're willing to give to him. That's all I'm saying.

Re: “If white America truly thinks Black Lives Matter, our society has a strange way of showing it

I'm not saying it's OK, what I'm asking is should he have lost his life over this? and to that I'll answer no every single time.
