The opposition Democratic Alliance has referred to South Africa’s judicial services commission racist remarks allegedly made by a judge over social media.
The High Court judge, who is a white woman, says in a Facebook exchange with a friend that rape is apart of black culture.
Judge Mabel Jansen says in her message that black men believe a woman is there to pleasure them.
She adds that this is is seen as an absolute right and a woman’s consent is not required.
Jansen holds that she still has to meet a black girl who was not raped at about 12 years old
Concluding that murder is also is not a big deal, she says gang rapes of baby, daughter and mother are a pleasurable pastime.
The Democratic Alliance has reported the messages
to the country’s Judicial Services Commission to be investigated.
The party says the judge’s comments are hurtful and demeaning and undermine the dignity of South Africa’s people.
The women’s league of the ruling African National Congress says the judge’s racist comments misrepresent facts about black culture.
Jansen says her postings, made confidentially to somebody in a position to help, have been have been taken completely out of context .
She says the real issue… is the protection of vulnerable women and children.
