Genarlow Wilson's supporters ( primarily Black women journalists and rape-culture supporters) took a victory lap around the bodies of his bruised and battered victims this weekend when he finally managed to make time to go to class so he could graduate from Morehouse College. A feat he could not have accomplished if the Black Elite Establishment had not literally dragged him across the finish line.
One might think that someone who avoided a decade in prison, through no effort of his own- Had a four year college education handed to him- through no effort of his own. Managed to get a job working in LAW ENFORCEMENT despite being a convicted child rapist- through no effort of his own would be as happy as a clam. But no, in keeping with the entitlement mentality that lead Mr. Wilson to believe that he was entitled to have sexual intercourse with an unconscious 17 year-old girl and pass around a young girl as a party favor, Mr. Wilson is whining about all of the people who want to see him fail and don't want him to get a second chance?
Who are these people? Show me the receipts? What I want is for Black women like those who run Ebony magazine to stop lying and saying you're not a rapist, when you are.
What I want is for the Associated Press to stop lying saying your child rape conviction was overturned
Georgia changed its teen sex laws and the state Supreme Court overturned Wilson's conviction in 2007, calling it "cruel and unusual." Associated Press
It was not- the sentence was reversed, the conviction stands- There is a difference. The question you need to ask is why Mr Wilson's supporters continue to lie about his conviction being reversed.
Congrats to Genarlow Wilson, from being accused of rape & servng jail time. Exonerated & Now Graduating Morehouse college w/ honors!— Gladiator Oshay(@HerFitz_HisLiv) May 19, 2013
No boo boo, he was not exonerated- he was and is a convicted child rapist- but don't let the fact get in the way of your throwing confetti on Twitter.
Here is some language from the Supreme Court of Georgia. Try to follow along to the end where they reverse his sentence, but not his conviction-Mr. Wilson was is and shall forever be a convicted felon.
In Weems,65 after concluding that the minimum sentence of twelve years in chains at hard labor constituted cruel and unusual punishment, the Court ruled that, because the minimum punishment was unconstitutional and because there was no other law under which Weems could be sentenced, Weems’s “judgment [had to] be reversed, with directions to dismiss the proceedings.”66 Similarly, in the present case, Wilson stands convicted of aggravated child molestation, and, as in Weems, we have determined that, under the statute then in effect, the minimum punishment authorized by the legislature for that crime is unconstitutional. Because Weems was decided on direct appeal, and the present case stems from Wilson’s habeas petition, we cannot direct the trial court to set aside the judgment and to dismiss the proceedings against Wilson. Instead, the corresponding and appropriate habeas relief would be for the habeas court to set aside Wilson’s sentence and to discharge Wilson from custody.
So no as much as you need him to not be a convicted child rapist... he is. His sentence was set aside- his conviction remains.
Congrats @genarlow_wilson you took lemons and made sweet, southern Lemonade! Blessings— Miss Sheila (@Tpa_ismyhome) May 19, 2013
-- Because apparently nothing is "sweeter" than raping two Black girls and getting a free college education out of it.
So yeah, big shout out to Genarlow Wilson, & everyone else who's going to or ever has graduated against the odds— Kyle Posey (@The_KP_Show) May 19, 2013
What odds? Having a college education dropped at his feet? Getting a book deal as a reward for raping two girls? Getting a job in law enforcement despite being a child rapist? Having a State senator and multimillionaire radio show host as his primary benefactors? What odds? Genarlow Wilson was going to graduate from Morehouse if Tom Joyner himself had to come take his final exams for him.
That's right: Genarlow Wilson is graduating from Morehouse today. If you remember his story, you know this is a major accomplishment!— dstarwriter59 (@dstarwriter59) May 19, 2013
Millions of Black men who do not gang rape uncoinsious teenage girls manage to graduate from college all of the time, what's major about it?
Special congrats to @genarlow_wilson on graduating ...known him since elem. school&he's such a great dude. God has a plan 4 u, G!— Jay K Gee (@MizBettyCrocker) May 19, 2013
Absolutely, God plans for ME to use Genarlow Wilson as an example of the Black community's immoral indifference to the suffering of Black girls who are the victims of violent crime.#LookAtGod!
Yes, I'm sure he's quite inspiring to teen age boys who gang rape teenage girls- look at what it can get them-- FAME, ACCLAIM and a four year scholarship. #Satan
What I want Mr. Wilson is for your ignorant supporters to stop proclaiming that it's okay to rape unconscious girls.
I want them to stop saying children can "consent" to being raped.
But most of all, I want you to head to a dark hole of obscurity because you've done nothing to merit any notoriety other than being a vile predator.
Generally speaking Mr. Wilson:
- Child rapists don't get free college educations.
- Most college students don't get the University president as their academic advisor.
- The average Black male college graduates who didn't rape children didn't get interviewed by all of the local news outlets.
- Most child rapists don't have supporters who expect the President of the United States to give them a shout out in a commencement address.
I wonder if not acknowledging Genarlow Wilson during the Morehouse speech was a conscious decision?— RiPPa (@RippDemUp) May 19, 2013
- Your victims are not going to get the book deals you apparently are seeking.
- Your victims have to watch you repeatedly take a victory lap as if you've done something special.
You lucked out in that you raped two Black girls and became a celebrity and a symbol of the oppression of the criminal justice system. So people have glossed over the fact that you are a sexual predator and an unapologetic one at that.
It was not a "situation" you gang raped a 17 year old girl.
I love the way all of the reporters keep referring to gang raping a teenage Black girl as "bad decisions." Jay walking is a bad decision. Mr Wilson's actions were evil and predatory.
Yep. Wilson's supporters are a classy crew. Cheering on the rape and sodomy of Black girls as if they are at some type of sporting event.
I couldn't agree more- the collusion and delusion of the Black community to prop up this sexual predator would make a very compelling movie which is why this blog is producing one :)
