But as with so many deteriorations of the quality of life in America, I`m tempted to wonder who, exactly, is responsible for all this subway groping. My own experience, as a 7-year veteran of the F and D trains, and from speaking to a variety of female straphangers, is that gropers are more likely to be black or Hispanic, like this charmer.

One common story from women I`ve spoken to is that of the lone black man, probably homeless, who has unzipped himself to masturbate in plain view inside the subway car. Needless to say, it`s an unnerving sight for anyone. Above ground, in New York and elsewhere, women (even liberal ones) report the lewdness of Hispanic men, whose own culture takes a decidedly different view of respect for women. Here`s an example:
I haven`t been in NYC very long (originally from Nevada) but never in my life have I experienced so many creepy men who blatantly stare me up and down, say nasty sexual comments to me, call me names, etc. until I moved here. I`m a pretty attractive, young, blonde girl, which is very common where I`m from, so I assume the guys there are just used to it. But here it`s just ridiculous! So is it normal for a female to have 5 foot tall Hispanic men (oh you know what I`m talking about, I see them everywhere. They`re all hispanic, short, and creepy. Often seen delivering food.) on the subway staring and whispering at you? To walk past a guy on the street and have him stop and turn around and shout something at you? When I`m walking down the street and see a group of construction workers I know what`s coming. I`ve even had a guy grab my ass on a crowded subway. Do these men have ANY respect for women?And subway anarchy generally tends to be a non-white phenomenon, as this hair-raising account holds: Hell on Wheels—The job of a conductor on a New York City subway train is a voyage into the heart of darkness. by Daniel Attila, American Renaissance, January 1997.

Now, whites are not unknown to engage in sexual perversity, and whenever I hear that someone`s been arrested for child pornography, I assume the perpetrator is white. But I`m having trouble picturing a proportionate number of whites in the subway-groper population. So who are the gropers?
Can we expect anyone to report the statistics, if they`re taken? Transit won`t tell us, and I`m sure the press won`t, either. But common sense New York women probably have an idea. [VDARE.com note: Some New York women have started a campaign to encourage women to snap cellphone pictures of anyone the see misbehaving, and post them on http://hollabacknyc.blogspot.com/. The results are about what you`d expect.]
