The source of this blog entry ("Who Rapes In Prison?") is almost 2 years old but it's still good enough to make my point which is: white people send Black boys/men to prison and protect their own by keeping them out of the prison system (for example, Andrew Warrington) but they are really setting white guys up to be violently attacked and raped if the day ever comes that they get sent to prison.
From the article.
In a 2001 report published by the liberal Human Rights Watch, a researcher named Joanne Mariner disclosed facts the mainstream media have long ignored or denied: There are more men raped in the United States—about 90,000 every year—than women—a mere 40,000. Most of the male rapes take place in prison, and good many of them are interracial, with blacks and Hispanics searching out and raping white men. [No Escape: Male Rape in U.S. Prisons]
The stories the report recounts, described in a 2002 article in the newsletter American Renaissance, are graphic and repellent. "I had no choice but to submit to being Inmate B's prison wife," one white convict said. "In all reality, I was his slave.… I determined I'd be better off to willingly have sex with one person, than I would be to face violence and rape by multiple people. The most tragic part to this is that the person I chose to 'be with' has AIDS."
Another white prisoner in Michigan reported that the black inmate who "claimed me as his property" "publicly humiliated and degraded me, making sure all the inmates and guards knew that I was a queen and his property. Within a week he was pimping me out to other inmates at $3.00 a man. This state of existence continued for two months until he sold me for $25.00 to another black male who purchased me to be his wife." Those are only a couple of the less lurid stories from the Human Rights Watch report.
[I had no idea this was happening to white guys in prison, but it explains why the Cincinnati Enquirer's Peter Bronson took an interest in the subject and wrote several columns about prison rape. (See this and this.) Why does Peter care? Because white guys are suffering. Does he care about addressing the injustices in the system which causes Black guys to suffer? Nope.]
Black people have spent decades complaining about how unfair the "justice" system is. For the most part, our concerns have been ignored. White people protect each other at every step in the criminal justice system. But racism and injustice has a way of coming back to haunt some white guys. By sending so many Black boys/men to prison, Blacks have, in many states, become the majority population. They run the show. Prisons have become integrated. So, when a white guy gets sent to prison, he can't hide from the Blacks. These poor guys wind up suffering because of the actions of people who share their same skin color.
Why do I bring this up? Because the day will come when the white Mulligan's murderer gets identified. This guy has been protected by the witnesses who haven't come forward. He has been protected by the cops who, even though they know who did it, won't give out his name or description. He will be protected by the judges, prosecutors, and defense attorneys. But if, by some miracle, he winds up in prison, he'll catch hell for all that protection he's received. It's not right, but it's what's happening.
Why not treat all people fairly? Why not reintroduce equality into the justice system? My guess is the reason we won't see an end to the inequality is because it benefits most whites and they don't see any reason to have a system that is fair. But when their son, or father, or nephew gets into a prison situation that turns ugly and violent, who's to blame?
