South African Judge in race rape row

JOHANNESBURG - A white South African judge has sparked a racism row after she purportedly said on social media that rape was part of the culture of black men.

Judge Mabel Jansen said the gang-rape of babies, girls and women was seen as a "pleasurable" past-time.

A petition has been launched to demand her removal as a judge. She said her comments had been taken out of context.

South Africa has been hit by a spate of racism rows in recent months, triggered by comments on social media.

The government has responded by saying that it intends to toughen anti-racism laws.

White minority rule and legalised racism ended in South Africa in 1994.

The latest row came after comments that Judge Jansen purportedly made on Facebook in a conversation with South African activist Gillian Schutte last year went viral at the weekend.

"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," the judge is quoted as saying.

She should be repatriated to Europe to her keith and kin. There her fellow white-skinned rapists will teach her Africa has no monopoly when it comes to sick-minded rapists. She is trying to portray us Africans as the only race where one can find rapists so that we look at her race as rapists free. She thinks we have no access to European news websites whereby we read of bizarre stories of her fellow white-skinned raping kids. She is a b..ch !
