The saddest thing in the world is when a young person ruins their life over something that doesn’t make any sense. The case in Oklahoma is interesting to many because a man was sent to prison for allegedly groping a woman, with there being little physical evidence to support the victim’s claims. You can’t assume that he was innocent, but when someone gets groped at a drunken frat party, a lot of stories come to the forefront.
Nomalanga Mhauli-Moses, as an advocate for both black men and black women, has taken issue with the case, not just for social justice reasons. She is also concerned about making good decisions in college and avoiding situations that can harm you for life. She teaches a class for young women at the college level and advises them on how to deal with difficult and complex situations like this.
We’ve got to help young people understand that making one mistake at one time in your life can ruin you for good. This man is learning his lessons the hard way.
I just read the story of the young Black man from Oklahoma State University who was convicted of rape.
The story has hit me like a tonne of bricks because I know that it was all very unnecessary. The minute that I read the sorry, hot tears flushed down my face because I realize the many levels on which this is a tragedy.
My main goal when I am in contact with young college-age women( and men) is to help them make decisions that result in them accomplishing their career and life goals. So, in looking at a situation such as this one, my first thought is what were the series of decisions that the young men and women made that led to this tragedy.
