Re: A Reader Notes The Existence Of A Real Rape Culture–Just Not Among White University Students

From: Victor [Email him]

I was reading the letter about “rape culture” and remembered some reports I read just yesterday about prison rape: No Escape: Male Rape in U.S. Prisons - Prisoners' Voices, 1, 2, 3, Human Rights Watch, 2001.

Quite a few of these reports mention gang rape by blacks. This passage was particularly chilling:

"Gangs of black and spanish inmates are very angry at freeworld white people for a variety of reasons, and this results in an attitude of vengeance towards white people in prisons..." J.F., Texas, 3/22/99[Spelling and capitalization in original—these are testimonies from prisoners.]

And yet, in many prison movies, such as The Shawshank Redemption, American History X, The Butterfly Effect, Lockdown, the rapists are invariably portrayed as blond white men, usually from the Aryan Brotherhood.

Yet another example of a Narrative that is completely dissociated from reality, as we already expected it to be in the media and Hollywood.

James Fulford writes: I just want to mention that The Shawshank Redemption, which features aphilosophical Morgan Freeman as a good prisoner and, as the reader notes, villainous white prisoners, is based on Stephen King story called Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption, in which the Morgan Freeman character was white, the bad prisoners were white, and the guards were white. That’s because it was set in 1960s Maine, where literally everyone was white, even in prison.

The Human Rights Watch Report was mentioned in a 2004 Sam Francis column called Who Rapes In Prison? Steve Sailer covered the same subject in SCOTUS: Segregation Worse Than Interracial Homosexual Rape!
