Problem is, name me a prison system that hasn't been in the news periodically due to corrupt guards dealing dope or whatever...
No, the real problem is the lawyers and liberals who sue every time someone in prison is forced to do something they don't want to.

I'm all for a nice herd of them chained together picking crops, but that would 'cruel and unusual'...

Yes, a black dude gets killed, most likley a black perp. A white boy gets raped, most likely a white perp. Simple facts. I am not racist... I am just stating facts. Oh wait, I am a racist... I hate honkytonks....

I read this and notice immediately how the writers never mention the race of these children... which means they're 'white'. But note that if the children had been hispanic or african-american or asian the racist writer's of our fair minnesota news papers would have not only blasted the race throughout the article, they would have blasted the neighborhood they lived in.
Yet, Minnesotans are so quick to deny that racism is a problem here.
Just because you have learned to hide it better than most, doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

Oh yeah, racism exists, it is rampant in the black community as witnessed by the never ending playing of the race card.
