Revolting: Former head of Steubenville NAACP says ‘alleged’ teen rape victim was drunk and willing; Update: NAACP condemns remarks

Editor’s note: This post has been amended to reflect that the International Business Times now reports that Mayo is not the current president of the Steubenville NAACP chapter. He is a member of the group’s Ohio executive committee.

Once again, we see who’s really waging a War on Women.

Two Steubenville High School football players were convicted of raping a 16-year-old girl. Convicted.

But according to Royal Mayo, former president of the Steubenville chapter of the NAACP and current member of the group’s Ohio executive committee, she’s an “alleged victim” who was totally asking for it. The International Business Times reports:

In a phone interview with the International Business Times, Mayo described the 16-year-old girl as the “alleged victim” and said she might have been having consensual sex. “She said her mother brought her to the party, at 3 o’clock, with a bottle of vodka,” Mayo said. “Where did you get it, young lady? You brought it from home? Where’d you get it? You came to the party with your mother.”

Mayo added that she might have been a willing participant, apparently unfazed by the inflammatory nature of such statements. “They’re alleging she got raped; she’s acknowledging that she wanted to leave with Trent. Her friends say she pushed them away as she went and got into the car, twice telling them, ‘I know what I’m doing; I’m going with Trent,’” Mayo said.

The despicable rape apologist, who was reportedly charged with domestic violence several years ago, also told the International Business Times he has a personal relationship with convicted rapist Ma’lik Richmond.

Will progressives call out one of their own for suggesting the rape of a teenager wasn’t “legitimate rape”? Will the Stuebenville rape victim receive a personal call from President Obama?

Or is victim-blaming excusable when an NAACP executive committee member is looking out for his pal at the expense of a teenage rape survivor?

Yes, let’s see that outrage.

Update:

The International Business Times has corrected its article. Royal Mayo is the former president of the Steubenville chapter of the NAACP and does not speak for the group.

Mayo remains a member of the NAACP’s Ohio executive committee.

Update:

The NAACP has released a statement.

The NAACP abhors the remarks attributed to Royal Mayo regarding the rape victim in the Steubenville. The remarks are Mayo’s own, and do not reflect the position of the NAACP and its membership.

Mr. Mayo is not the president of the Steubenville NAACP and is not a spokesman for the NAACP. The article attributing him as such has been corrected by the International Business Times.

    Is it bad that I’m never surprised at these kinds of stories anymore?

      It is. The fact that nowadays these stories don’t surprise us anymore, but the “good Samaritan”/ nice stories are surprising in every case says a lot about where we are.

    These are important moments of clarity, my friends.

    Ladies in the suburbs who think it’s trendy and cool to be all about the leftist causes and civil rights and whatever is fashionable, who vote for the left wing just to be popular….

    you have some soul searching to do on behalf of this poor girl who could be your daughter.

      Good point, Scholar! As with all Regressive “causes”, a good lib wouldn’t want to be “on the wrong side of history” with this one.

      And since the current justification for marriage” equality” is because that’s EXACTLY like black civil rights of the 60s, who better to be a moral arbiter than the NAACP?

        I’m so glad you asked!

        Because this was the demographic that dragged Mr. Obama across the finish line in the 2012 election.

        The left knows they own 47% of the country who have no interest whatsoever in whether civilization lives or dies. But 47% doesn’t win elections. They need a sizable block of otherwise sane people who for some reason can be easily convinced to vote against the national interest.

    1. You will NOT be armed
    2. You will take your RAPE and like it
    3. The ABORTION will cure it all.

      Sounds like the rules for meeting the 42nd President of the United States.

      I’d correct #2:

      2. You will take your RAPE and become a proud victim for future Congress hearings.

    Right out of the lib playbook- accuse the opposition of what you, yourself, are doing.
    War on women? Check. Racism? Check.
    Compare this to Tawana Brawley/Sharpton rape hoax. A shameful illustration that some rape is more “legitimate” than others.
    What will be the reaction from MSNBC’s in-house racebaiting trio: Matthews, Sharpton &Toure?

    Just ask Whoopi for rel moral clarity. It wasn’t really “rape..rape”, now, was it?? After all, the girl was begging for it, and what’s a poor young boy to do?? These people are hideous. Liberals are worse vermin than Muslims and twice as dangerous.

    • Adela Wagner

      Joe would probably call this your “Garden Variety” rape. And AGAIN, National Organization for Women(NOW), is LOUDLY silent on the issue.

        Or Whoopi Goldberg’s “rape rape” comment certainly echoes what the Ohio moron is saying. Despicable. Utterly despicable. My daughters are no longer 16, but they both have concealed weapons permits.

    Mr. Mayo, as president of an organization that claims to advocate for the advancement of black people, surely you must be aware of the staggering fact that black teenage girls have the highest pregnancy rate in the nation right?

    This alarming statistic alone would lead me to believe that you or anyone else in your organization are hardly the ones to speak with authority on the topic of teenage sex.

    I suggest you first try cleaning up the mess in your own backyard, before you try to lecture anyone else about a subject that you and the NAACP should be ashamed of.

    In other words…
    Crawl back under your rock Mr. Mayo and let the grown ups handle this.You and your organization don’t seem to be advancing anything except ignorance on this issue.

          For decades the NAACP have failed miserably at “leadership” as their community has declined more and more. How is Chicago doing?

    Well, these things are incremental; we can rest assured that his position will come up for review one of these years.

  • socalcon

    I’m pretty sure Ashley Judd is preparing a statement…

  • LegalizeShemp

    Isn’t it strange how only Re-pubics get in big trouble for saying ridiculous things in defense of rapists? When a Commiecrat steps in it, there’s no calls from the Left for his resignation.

    • camnpat

      Because when an R or a conservative says something about rape you do it out of a racist, misogynistic, un-evolved mind. When a liberal or progressive does it he/ she simply “misspoke” or you simply didn’t “get the point” they were making.

  • Rusty Shackleford

    And if the girl were black and the two guys were white, what would he be saying?

    Always nice to hear from the Black equivalent of the Klan. Can’t wait to watch the Anti-rape advocates tear this prick a new one.

    • camnpat

      They already have: the NAACP came hard in condemning the all white Duke Lacrosse team when the accuser was a black woman.

      • Rusty Shackleford

        Ahh yes I remember that now. You know it took me 26 years on this Earth to finally recgonize the slant of the media.

      • Rusty Shackleford

        Ahh yes I remember that now. You know it took me 26 years on this Earth to finally recgonize the slant of the media.

  • camnpat

    Interesting: when a black girl made a rape accusation against the all white Duke lacrosse team some years ago (claim which she eventually admitted was false) the NAACP (and media) was condemning the “rapists” without even a doubt. Now that one of the rapists is black the NAACP is all about questioning the victim (and the media has been all over the place).

    But conservatives are the ones concerned with skin color.

  • Garth Haycock

    I have only two questions for Mr. Mayo:

    1. Was she a willing participant for the white kid too?
    2. Just how stupid are you?

  • cgraham77

    Royal Mayo is a greasy ball of lard.

  • annie carroll

    This is Steubenville, we were Detroit before it crashed and burned. Mayo, like the the real queen of the NAACP in the town, who we believe has been here since the Civil War (her, not Mayo), have been keepin’ the race card going for 40 yrs. They are the Chicago White House, new black panthers, and Opra all rolled into one. Crime in a town of 18,000 rivals chicago, per capita thanks to druggie boys and free reign in the hoods, which is now most of the town. The Steubenville saga much bigger than the rape case that made the news. This place needs turned inside out, upside down because of corruption in every corner (Mayo right on that)

    Can some real journalist come and study the town? Stranahan, need not apply, he’s only workin’ one angle, for money?? it appears??while missing the real story here. (He’s not interested in other voices, only those that fit his, shall I say “false narrative” yet again.) Help us please. One dark side has been exposed, please feel free to turn over every creepy stone here, regardless of pol. bias. This town needs completely exposed, then perhaps redemption may occur.

    she did ask for it. She left her whistle and vomit bag at home. She never attempted to urinate on him, connect with him on a ‘human’ level, tell him jokes, cry, tell him she had std’s was pregnant or on ‘her period’.
