“You’d have to be pretty willfully ignorant not to realize that part of the revenues that went into your check on a weekly basis were derived, at least in part, from marketing for prostitution.”

Which included child sex trafficking.

Marketing for prostitution means pimping.

You would have to be very willfully ignorant not to be able to figure this out for yourself, just by understanding the structure of Village Voice – Backpage.

Are some people around here being willfully ignorant?  You betcha!  Another word for being “willfully ignorant” would simply be, “apologist“.

a·pol·o·gist –  a person who offers an argument in defense of something controversial.
Synonyms: defender, supporter, upholder, advocate, proponent, exponent, propagandist, champion, campaigner.
Are there child sex trafficking apologists out there?  You betcha!  They are defenders and supporters of child sex slavery/trafficking.
I am not one of them. Profiting off of the misery of homeless children, that is as unholy as it gets.
