Gang rape is happening here – and what I have found most disturbing as an African is that a disproportionate number of these attacks are being carried out by black or mixed-race young men.Sorious Samura is lucky - if a white male journalist was to submit a report like this one, he'd be accused of racism, or lack of understanding of 'black culture'.
But he understands the issues all too well:
Gang rape, while constituting only a tiny percentage of all rapes in the UK, is a horrible reality in this country. The nature of the crime is so appalling that much more research needs to be carried out into its causes. But what seems evident from my investigation is that the key to preventing it will be changing the way young men view women and the kind of group sexual activity they are engaging in at such a young age.Good luck with that, Sorious, since (as your report admits), no-one's even keeping track of the figures:
Despite the seriousness of the crime, I was amazed to discover that no national statistics exist: gang rape is simply not recorded as a separate crime category.Funny. It seems to be the only thing no-one wants to keep any stats on...
