I’m so upset, angry and just completely disgusted about this story!
 Matthew Durham, 19, allegedly confessed to sexually assaulting several children at an orphanage in Kenya, police said. (Credit: KFOR)
An Edmond teenager faces a possible life in prison sentence after authorities say they learned about shocking crimes he allegedly committed on an African mission trip.
The suspect was volunteering at a Kenyan children’s home when he allegedly raped and molested a number of young children.
According to court records, 19-year-old Matthew Durham confessed to raping several young girls, forcing some boys to perform oral sex on him and even making other kids watch.
“This is a young man in our community that made choices to exploit children in an orphanage,” said United States Attorney Sanford Coats. “It’s a true tragedy all the way around.”
The 19-year-old suspect traveled overseas with a group called Upendo.
Upendo is an organization that assists neglected Kenyan kids by providing food, housing, clothes and religion.
While Durham volunteered to travel overseas several times over the last two years, on his last visit, the criminal complaint alleges, “Durham requested to stay at the children’s home in an ‘overflow bunk’ rather than at an offsite facility.”
During that visit, several alleged victims claimed Durham “often touched them in a sexual manner or told them to touch themselves while he watched.”
Once confronted, Durham allegedly came clean.
“A caretaker at the orphanage noticed something wasn’t right and confronted Mr. Durham. He admitted to some of the acts,” said Coats.
The affidavit continues, “The victims are believed to be both boys and girls between the ages of four and nine, at least one of whom is HIV positive.”
Prosecutors say while the alleged sex crimes were committed overseas, Durham can be held accountable for the crimes in Oklahoma.
Durham is being held without bond.


Kill him

This is why I will never trust religious missionaries.  They are literal embodiments of white western colonialism, right down to the actual rape of black children.  What’s saddest is that this is not a rare case, the only surprising thing is that he got caught.misandry-mermaid:

Italian Tourists Luring Poor Kenyan Children Into Prostitution
| Posted by Tracy 
 Kenya’s coastal town of Malindi may look like a tropical paradise, but it is host to a hidden child sex trade. Children as young as 12 years old say they are being lured into prostitution and pornography by tourists willing to pay handsomely for sex in secret locations.
Charlotte Attwood of BBC Africa went to Malindi to investigate and reported the following.
Just beneath a wall on one of the busy tourist beaches in Malindi, children loiter in the hope of attracting a customer. I met two girls and a boy – all under the age of 18 –  and all who admit to selling their bodies to foreigners for sex.
In a good month, they can get a client every day, one of the girls said.
Most of the tourists in Malindi come from Italy, and their clients are mostly Italian men between the age of 50 and 80, she said.
With a dull look in her eye, 16-year-old Maria explained how she goes about her daily business.
“I ask my friends who work as beach boys to find me a male tourist. When I get a client, we strike a deal, say for $60 (£35, US$58),” she says.
While I was sitting with the children, I saw an elderly man approach the two girls with money in his hands. Once he spotted me, he signaled to the girls that he would be back later.
The authorities in Malindi have been trying to tackle the problem, and hotels now bar young local girls from visiting tourist rooms.
But Naomi Kazungu, the local government child protection officer, said that this has created another problem, as the trade has been driven underground.
The children are no longer going to hotels, but to private villas, Kazungu said.
Peter is one of the beach boys in Malindi who admits to facilitating this business.
He took me 300 metres (1,000ft) up the beach, around a rocky escarpment to a cave. It is a favorite spot for sex tourists, he told me, especially those who go for children.
A cave where young Kenyan boys and girls are sexually exploited.
The trade is illegal in Kenya and this is a perfect hideout.
As the tide comes in, the caves become cut off from the rest of the beach. There is a lot of dead seaweed on the floor that is used as a mattress, Peter says.
The tourists prefer girls aged 15 to 17, he adds.
Some of these men, Peter says, like to involve dogs and pay the girls up to $500 to film this.

… [P]ersons are trafficked into the international sex trade, often by force, fraud, or coercion. The sex industry has rapidly expanded over the past several decades. It involves sexual exploitation of persons, predominantly women and girls, involving activities related to prostitution, pornography, sex tourism, and other commercial sexual services.

Yes, in 2014, a NYC apartment building will have a rich door and a poor door

The complex will mix luxury and affordable units; 219 luxury units overlook the water, while 55 affordable housing units, contained in a separate “building segment,” will overlook the street. Low-income tenants will also be barred from using amenities like a swimming pool and a basketball court on-site.

Most reasonable people would grant that privacy is a function of liberty. And if we get rid of privacy, we’re making ourselves less free. If we want to live in open and liberal societies, we need to have safe spaces where we can experiment with new thoughts, new ideas, and [where] we can discover what it is we really think and what we really believe in without being judged. If we can’t have the privacy of our bedrooms, if we can’t have the privacy of our notes on our computer, if we can’t have the privacy of our electronic diaries, we can’t have privacy at all.

This is CRITICAL. Remember, the oppressors do NOT want to stop oppressing; they simply want you to endure it but be quiet about it AND not acknowledge how it impacts almost every choice you can make in life and how you navigate life itself. This is the core of bootstrap theory, a facet of the lie of meritocracy, as to why it is a disgusting and flawed concept.

This quote is EVERYTHING.

Exactly.

I’m not obsessed with racism. You’re complacent in white supremacy.

The minimum wage needs to be a living wage. The business-side discomfort with raising the wage would be more understandable if every sector was hurting. But it isn’t. The rich are richer than ever, corporate profits are at record highs, the stock market is soaring. We don’t need to coddle McDonalds and WalMart by paying their employees less than living wages. But in any case, raising the minimum doesn’t hurt the economy at all. It actually creates more jobs.
