WASHINGTON– Albert Haynesworth, an NFL star who is facing misdemeanor sexual abuse charges for allegedly fondling an African-American waitress’ breast in a D.C. Hotel, is saying her claims are false because he doesn’t like black women, according to statements allegedly given to a detective.
Haynesworth supposedly said, “I know what this is about: [The waitress] is just upset I have a white girlfriend. I couldn’t tell you the last time I dated a Black girl.”
What makes this comment even more shocking is that sexual abuse or rape is in most cases not about the victim’s race. It is about the attacker finding physical gratification in humiliating another person.
