Mabel Jansen – Controversy on Rape/Racist Comments

Mabel Jansen has been put on the limelight for the wrong reasons since mid 2016 for a number racist comments and conversations she had over social media.  Here is what she said:

“In their culture a woman is there to pleasure them. Period. It is seen as an absolute right and a woman’s consent is not required. You may find this hard to accept and unpalatable as did I. I still have to meet a black girl who was not raped at about 12. I am dead serious.”

Above she was talking about the “Black Culture” and how it has always been part of our culture for the men to have total dominance over the women. Therefore saying in the “Black Culture”; rape is not rape but a man’s right to get pleasured.

She further went on to say:

“It is only now that women realise that they have rights and have to be taken up seriously that we are being hit by the veritable tsunami of rape cases. But we often have to hear that it was only about the third time that they sought to report it that they were taken up seriously.

Mothers are so brain washed that they tell the children that it is the fathers’ birth right to be the first. I must hand you – 10, 20, 30, 40 files and you will adopt a completely different attitude. The white people have a lot to account for. But this? I feel like vomiting…. So no – the black people are by far no angels. Their conduct is despicable.”

Thinking that was all, she went on to add a few more thoughts:

“Murder is also not a biggy. And gang rapes of baby, daughter and mother a pleasurable pass time. That, in reality, is the flip side of the coin. They are simply now in a position to branch out and include white woman.”

After these conversations were made public, many on social media demanded for her to be sacked.
