Asian rape victims

I read somewhere that many Asian rape victims are attacked by black men, but I wanted to check it out for myself. 

I looked at the National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS) over the years 1992 through 2005 in order to maximize cases. Rape is rare (thank God), so I only found 11 cases of raped Asian (and Pacific Islander) women. Of the offenders, 5 were white, 4 were "other," and two were unknown. I'm assuming that most of the 4 "others" were Asians (Hispanics are a possibility as well); an Asian category is not available. None of the perps was black. The NCVS can't tell us if any of those whites are Hispanic since, according to the survey, Hispanics can be victims but not offenders. 

The numbers are just too small to tell us much. Victims were also asked about attempted rapes. Asian women reported one white, one black, and one "other" perpetrator.

"Rape is rare." How can you say this?! Don't you know that according to NOW (or something like that) 5 bazillion women are raped every 3 seconds?!

Those "white" attackers might be hispanics of any race.

Yes and don't go to any college campus. It's an epidemic there.

[The feminists probably make it worse for actual rape victims.]

I've never heard that uncommon wisdom. If anything, I think Asian women would be more likely to be raped by family members or spouses than women of other races.

I'm under the impression that blacks are less likely than other races to live among or near Asians.

It doesn't really say much about the overall Rape Rate that Asians are very rarely Raped.

Asians are also far less likely to fall victim to any crime.

This is because they're of such high SES, and spend so much time around Asians.

1,

Surveys indicate that the Rape Rate on College Campuses are far higher than you'd expect based on SES.

It shows how much Feminists "like" Women that they devoted so much effort into taking them out of the Home, and into the Dorm Rooms.

"[The feminists probably make it worse for actual rape victims.]"

I can't remember if the Feminists supported Croker in Croker V. Georgia.

They certainly didn't side with Georgia though, which is what they would've done if they actually cared about giving Rape victims justice and protecting Women from being Raped in the first place.

According to the FBI, more than 60% of rape claims are false. Which makes all the worse since it could potentially cast a doubt on legitimate claims and further obfuscate cases that go unreported.
