    Prison rape is racist. Everyone knows that young black men are incarcerated in far greater numbers than their proportion in the population. And a lot of people like it like that. Some laws we have, or the enforcement of them, e.g. marijuana possession, seem designed to incarcerate young black men.

    For too many white Americans, putting black men in prison is putting them in their place. And if they happen to get raped while in jail, why should racists be displeased with that result?
