Recently, a 28 year old woman claimed that she was attacked by an unknown assailant, and had acid thrown in her face by a black woman with an athletic build.
Her attacker (the black woman), allegly said: "Hey, pretty girl, want something to drink?"
Upon further questioning, her story became inconsistent, and she finally admitted that she made up the story, and threw acid on her self.
Now, perhaps this is blaming the victim, but since the victim is also the perpetrator, it seems acceptable. Clearly, this woman has mental health issues, and this is a desperate plea for attention.
But what is disturbing is that she decided to describe her attacker as a black woman, further fuelling false stereotypes, that blacks are both violent, and jealous of white women.
I hope that once this woman recovers, she issues an apology to the African American community.
