WATCH: British Schoolgirls Protest After 4 Afghan Refugees Allegedly Raped A Classmate And The School Let Them Return
I see stories like these, and can't help but wonder if maybe there's a reason countries have borders and vetting laws other than racism. But then I remember the answer is always racism, so I carry on with my day.
Four Afghan boys were recently arrested in connection with the rape of a 15-year-old girl in the United Kingdom. The boys arrived unaccompanied in boats last year, illegally crossing the English Channel as asylum seekers. The boys are between the ages of 13 and 16. Three of them allegedly pinned the girl down and acted as "lookouts" while the fourth raped her at school. The police cleared them of any wrongdoing, but the schoolgirls don't seem convinced.
Some of the schoolgirls protested the rape and claimed the school is doing nothing about it. They said they don't feel safe because the school allowed the boys to return: "They think that it's not that serious in a way, because they've let them boys come back into our school without an issue." The girl who was allegedly raped has not returned to school.
One of the girls went on the explain the school is mainly concerned with the protests, not that the boys might rape another girl. Another girl said that there have been many cases of sexual assault, but the school has refused to do anything about it other than instruct the girls how to dress so the boys won't rape them.

Last year, a record number of migrants crossed the English Channel in boats to illegally enter the country. About a fifth of those were unaccompanied minors, most from Afghanistan. Ministers are debating deporting unaccompanied minors to Rwanda for their asylum claims to be processed there.
The school's reaction (or lack thereof) sounds a bit like the whole transgender sports issue, where young girls who feel victimized and unsafe are silenced and ignored to avoid "stirring the pot." Where are the feminists now?
