While it is wrong to broad brush any group for the sins of a few, if higher caste are using this “class system” to rape with impunity, their culpability is deserved.

A system that makes any man or woman the lesser is the problem here. India lacks humanity and compassion for their fellow man. That happens everywhere but is more pronounced in a caste system.

The disgusting misogyny that many rap singers display is a problem everywhere. This young man’s expressions of innocence are laughable, but in this world of hate, our icons are not just less than perfect heroes…or misguided fools… many are manifesting evil.

Do you have statistical data to support your assertion? Your implication is that the “majority” Brahmin class is responsible for responsible for these terrible crimes against women. First, is this true?

Second, Brahmins are not, and never have been, in any sort of majority. According to a study done by India’s Center for the Study of Developing Societies, presumably based on the 2000 census, Brahmins constitute 5% of India http://online.wsj.com/article/SB11988938 7595256961.html

Nepali, Tibetan, and Muslim people have no rights in India and their women are easy targets for rapists.
