do any of the witnesses contradict each other, or themselves?
Yes, because the main character Thalia claimed that she was raped by 5 men and that it was too dark to even notice their face or the vehicle, because it was too dark it's surprising that she even claimed that the 5 men were local hawaiians instead of 5 white men.

Microaggression

... is that microaggression is extremely detrimental to the counseling setting and occurs quite often. Although usually unintentional and unrealized, white therapists are often guilty of microagressions. When this occurs, therapy becomes ineffective and leads to non self-disclosure of the client, early termination of therapy, and failure of the client to return for future appointments. This is because the clients lose trust in their therapists and feel misunderstood and undervalued. Microaggressions by white therapists are often attributed to their cultural conditioning, their fear in addressing race issues or their lack of racial self-awareness. In my opinion, the easiest and best short-term solution (on both therapist and client) to the microaggression issues would be to no longer pair up a white therapist with a client of color. If it is such a huge and obvious problem, why continue to throw salt in the gaping wound? Although I realize my proposed solution is not the most politically correct, I believe it would prove to be a quick and extremely effective one. Since I realize this solution would never be put into effect, I guess I would suggest the more realistic approach of addressing the issue with more training of racial awareness. If mental health professionals were trained to understand the causes and consequences of racial microaggressions, perhaps the number of aggressions during therapy would begin to decline. Along those same lines, I think the client should take...

Micro Aggression in Daily Life

...Microaggressions in Everyday Life Chinese people consist of the majority—Han and other 55 ethnic minorities, such as Hui, also called Muslim Chinese. Han and Hui have different living customs. For example, Hui are forbidden to eat pork while pork is the most common meat consumed by Han. In my high school, there were two dinning rooms: a big one for Han students, and the other small one for Hui students. I had dinner with my friend-Qian, who was Hui, but stayed with me in Han Chinese dinning room on that day. I enjoyed my pork dish, and wanted to share it with her but she refused. Qian explained, “I am Hui people, we do not eat pork.” I did not give up and said, “Come on, I have known you for ages, we are the same, we are all Chinese people. I can not see any differences.” My friend began to keep silent, and I kept persuading her, “just try one slice of the pork, they are really delicious”. However, my friend frowned and said “I can not eat it. The smell of the pork makes me sick”. After hearing her words, I stopped persuading her to eat pork because I did not want to make her uncomfortable. Then we began to talk other topics. I was unaware that what I committed was a microaggression at that time. Microaggressions are verbal, behavioral, or environmental indignities, whether intentional or unintentional happening in daily life, conveying communicating hostile, derogatory...
