(STMW) — A registered sex offender is accused of groping a woman Tuesday night at a Brown Line station on the Near North Side.

Adrian Balle, 48, of the 5400 block of West Huron, faces one felony count of criminal sexual abuse, according to Chicago Police.

About 9:30 p.m., the 23-year-old woman was on her way up the stairs to the Franklin Brown Line stop in the 300 block of West Chicago when a man ran up behind her and grabbed her buttocks, prosecutors said.

The man continued to follow her, then reached between her legs and groped her again through her clothes, prosecutors said. The woman turned around and pushed the man away from her.

The man smiled at the woman and made a joke, then smacked her hand away, prosecutors said. He walked up back down the stairs, while the woman ran the rest of the way up to the station.

A CTA employee noticed the woman crying and asked her what happened, prosecutors said. The woman told the CTA employee and pointed to the man, who was entering a Dunkin Donuts at the bottom of the stairs.

The CTA employee called police and gave a description of the man, who was arrested in the Dunkin Donuts.

The woman identified Balle in a lineup as the man who groped her, and surveillance videos captured the incident, prosecutors said.

Balle is a registered sex offender with a criminal history dating back to 1986, according to court records.

Judge James Brown ordered Balle held on a $300,000 bond in court Wednesday.

Harassed at East Columbia Library; Columbia, Maryland

One day I was typing up some work at the East Columbia Branch Library off Cradlerock Way in Columbia, Maryland.

I sent a document to the printer and as I approached the printer located on top of the information circular counter I noticed there was a Black male and Black woman having a conversation. I thought nothing of it until I reached for the paper off the printed and slightly turned back around only to have a tall black “Christian” male literally in my face blocking my view and stated “Hi-yah..” with a smirk and would not leave my presence.

What was odd was that not only did he jump in my face, block my frontal view in a matter of about three seconds but he abandon the conversation he was in. My startled look was apparent as one of the librarians turned around and stared at him. About a minute later the Black woman he was in the company with stated “Don’t do that” and gestured for him to leave me alone.

A G-d-fearing religiously clad, quiet woman working on the computer being blocked in for just existing.

In broad daylight, if it was not for the woman speaking to the male in a tone disparaging his conduct disapprovingly and the librarian turning around–he would’ve surely grabbed me. Black male harassers everywhere, cannot even go to a library and be productive without these cretens disturbing you.

Black man leave me alone.

Two Separate Conversations with Sunni Muslim Women:  Black “Christian” Males Are Sexual Harassers and are Nasty

One day I was at a retail store when a younger (continental) African woman who worked there asked if I needed assistance. As I was looking for a scarf we discussed higher education. As the conversation progressed we discovered we had something else in common–black Christian males are disrespectful and continuously sexually harass Sunni Muslim women. Although I wear hijab and modest clothing and she doesn’t the result was the same. Interestingly, she referred to black “Christian” males as unattractive and thugs, and that she preferred white men, sentiments shared by many highly educated Sunni Muslim Black women.

Another conversation I had was with a Sunni Muslim Black woman from the West Coast. We met at an Islamic celebration and she revealed she was married to a white man who converted to Islam whom I met towards the end of the event. As we talked, I asked her why did she and her family move to Maryland. She stated the environment was not condiucive to raising a family and black (Christian) males sexually/street harassed her even when she had her chidren with her. Although she  is a covered, Sunni, practicing married woman, she too endured years of black male harassers. Knowing how ignorant and uncivilized black men are she was probably harassed for being in a interracial marriage. Why do black Christian males and women insist on imposing their insidious views on Sunni Muslim Black women who do not share religious or cultural beliefs with them and are at peace with their choices? It is because they have no peace, are unhappy and jealous and want to mock and destroy Sunni Muslim Black women who share little or nothing in common in common with them religious wise or culturally.

I must admit I was surprised that their family moved to Maryland/DC area where the same type of thugs persist. However, after discussing real estate and how her family can purchase farm land and be further away, I understood that in California it is nearly impossible to do so.

Interesting to note that these black male thugs do not bother Arab or South Asian Muslims because black males have a special hatred of seeing successful, religious women at peace. For some reason they harbor a special IDIOTIC and IRRATIONAL notion that skin pigmentation grants them a right to cat call, sexually harass and otherwise make women of color uncomfortable with their disrespectful and diabolical behavior. These sexual black “Christian” predators will rape you, assault you, invade your space, intercept your conversation, threaten you, call you out your name, molest you, try to embarrass you–yet wonder why you stay away and avoid their presence. This type of behavior gives credence to racists who promote the bell curve as black men do not act responsibly or with intelligence on a daily basis in civilized society. These deviants pillaged and devastated their own “black Christian” community (with health issues and illegitimate children/children they don’t care for) and now attempt to infiltrate the Sunni Muslim community with the same. We have our eyes on you (all of us). They mock G-d, modest, decent women and G-d’s creation, yet they think they have a right to G-d fearing women simply because we exist? Only demons believe such foolishness.

Two separate conversations, two different Sunni Muslim women of color, from two different parts of the world and the same problem: nasty, black “Christian” sexual/street harassers. They are a plague and are everywhere. God help us all.

Just a Thought: Black Male Hypocrisy and Street Harassment

Black Male Hypocrisy and Street Harassment

Recently, there has been a wave of news reports regarding law enforcement officers harassing and or killing unarmed black men. What these news reports fail to emphasize is that most of the time police are within their rights to question someone who is a suspect when a crime has been freshly committed. It’s interesting that black males who are reasonably suspected of a crime receive protests and outrage from the Black community but the voices of these anti-system protesters when INNOCENT Black women are harassed and sometimes killed as a result of sexual/street harassment are but a faint whisper…

These black women are not guilty or suspected of a crime, yet the black community will yell at the top of their lungs on behalf of many a black
man who was reasonably suspected of such. That is because the black community including Black women of the old guard do not see value in Black women and Black girls. Blacks will teach their daughters to shake things off or it is not a big deal or that is how men are. In other words these crazed enablers attempt to inculcate a sense of guilt, shame or less value in the life worth of Black women and girls including their bodily integrity. Older black women are guilty of this oft times from jealousy of seeing younger generations with greater opportunites in life due to changes in social circumstances. The former black actually enabling Black men in this behavior because their ex-husbands, boyfriends, rapists or baby daddies left them with little mouths to feed, no child support and no self-esteem. So these women call their sons “little man” and emotionally use them to replace the social and psychological void of single motherhood. ‘Little man’ grows up thinking that ANY Black women are to serve whatever needs they have whether it be monetary, sexual and psychological and seek these from total strangers who are Black women. These Black men who usually accuse women of being “emotional” have a grave sense of entitlement reminiscent of their welfare mothers mentality towards the government. They know this mentality is wrong but seek to force society, especially decent Black women into catering to it.  Since the generations of Black women grew stronger and more educated she looks upon Black men with disdain as their predatory behavior has no place in civilized society… 

Black men you decry and whine about law enforcement officers harassing you even when they have cause, yet you harass, stalk, molest, cat-call, deride and abuse women, in particular Black women who are total strangers–have you not heard of karma? or justice? Payback for all those times you harassed and put innocent women safety and lives in danger and imposing post traumatic stress syndrome because you cannot simply two letters of the English alphabet N-O.

Maybe, just maybe the universe is giving you exactly what you deserve.

BLACK GANG BEATS WHITE COUPLE IN MISSOURI AFTER SEXUALLY HARASSING WOMAN

by WARNER TODD HUSTON  6 Sep 2014 

Police in Springfield, Missouri released shocking surveillance footage of a gang of six black males viciously attacking a man and his girlfriend in a driveway near a downtown nightclub.

The woman, Meredith Cole, told police she was sexually harassed outside the club by several of the black males on August 22. She quickly went inside to retrieve her boyfriend, Alex Vassey, a DJ at the Outland Ballroom. The pair then went outside to see if they could identify any of the harassers.
Once out on the street, a gang of six black youths snuck up behind them and started attacking the couple, beating them in their faces and kicking Vassey after he was knocked to the ground.
The video clearly shows Vassey being viciously assaulted, as well as showing the young woman being punched in the face and knocked to the ground twice.
The victims were both sent to the hospital and treated for multiple contusions, bruises, and cuts. Cole also suffered a fractured ankle.
Police were not able to apprehend any of the perpetrators and ask that if anyone recognizes the attackers in the video that they should call Crime Stoppers at (417) 869-TIPS (8477).
 

Black Man Kills Black Woman Because She Rejected His Advances October 2014

Like I said black males are sinister and believe Black woman’s primary purpose on earth is to satisfy their inordinate sexual needs. A Black woman already in a relationship which she disclosed. Quite frankly it is no one’s business whether this or any other woman is in a relationship if she is not interested she’s not interested. Back off. Here’s the article:

Woman Shot, Killed After Saying No To A Man’s Advances, Detroit Police Say
Kate Abbey-Lambertz The Huffington Post 10/07/14 02:06 PM ET
Police say a man shot and killed a woman after she rejected his advances at an event in Detroit over the weekend. Five people were also injured during the incident.

Mary Spears, 27, was at the American Legion Joe Louis Post No. 375 on the east side of Detroit when the 38-year-old suspect allegedly approached her and began talking to her, according to WDIV.

When the suspect asked for her number, Spears, whose fiancé was also at the event, told him she was already involved with someone, WJBK reports. The suspect, however, continued harassing her, family members told the station.

Police said security took the man out of the club through the back door and escorted him to the front. After a fight broke out, the suspect allegedly took out a handgun and began shooting, killing Spears around 2 a.m. Sunday.

Some on social media were horrified by the news.

This is an op-ed about her death:
Who cries when black women die?

I’m not asking that as some type of rhetorical, poetic question, meant to move you toward ferocious finger snaps. I want to know. Who cries when black women die?

Further, who cries when black women are killed?

Mary Spears was killed. The man who killed her did so because she refused to give him her phone number. She told him “I have a man I can’t talk to you,” and yet he persisted. Rather than respect her wishes to be left alone, he shot her.

Who cries when black women die from street harassment? 

I really do need an answer. Because Mary Spears’s right to move about freely in the world was denied to her, her life taken from her, and there are no marches. No one has broken out the bullhorns or their comfortable sneakers. There are no widespread calls to protect the autonomy of black women and their bodies. The community leaders haven’t deemed this unacceptable and a fate no one should ever face simply because they reject a man’s advances.

No, when black women die from that toxic mix of violent misogyny, male entitlement, and hypermasculine posturing, there is no movement to be born. There are condolences to be offered and “unfortunate”s to be uttered, but no tears to be cried. There is no anger that propels action.

You’ve read this piece before. You’ve read it a dozen times over. I’ve written it before. I could have written it a dozen times over. It’s the piece where someone complains about how little outrage there is surrounding something which deeply affects them, and then the reader is left to wonder, “Well, if it means that much to you, what are YOU doing about it?” You may have written that piece before. And we keep writing them because I don’t think any of us are quite sure what to do.

Where black women are concerned, we aren’t just talking about mounting the evils of misogyny, or even racism. We compete with the sacrifices black women make for their community.

I understand that there’s an impulse to not make black men the faces of street harassment, given all of the ideas that already exist around black male hypersexuality, as well as the disproportionate amount of police violence that black men face as the result of the constant criminalization of behaviors associated with black men. But black women have been allowed to suffer too much for the protection of black men. They have paid with their lives.

And here I am, writing another blog post wondering why no one seems to care.

Street harassment is vile. It makes women feel unsafe in public. But when black women die because we have failed to teach boys and men to keep their thoughts and hands to themselves, that they are not entitled to the sexual attention of any and every woman, or that their attempts at proving their masculinity through verbal and physical assaults on women are failures, the concern fades before it has a chance to actually surface. Black women are expected to keep sacrificing.

Who cries when black women die? Nobody. No damn body.
