When You're Accused of Rape
Scott Bear Don't Walk - When I was 22, I was accused of rape. More correctly, an ex-girlfriend told people that I was a rapist. No formal complaint was made. This happened right around the time I was selected as a Rhodes Scholar. What she said started to circulate and people who heard this as rumor tried to reconcile two competing visions of me: the local Native American who makes good, and the rapist.
