    Being around CURSED WHITE CITIZENS in close COMFORTS of JAIL is not DOING US ANY GOOD.

    -- The prevalence of mental illness varied by race, with 62 percent of white inmates suffering from problems, compared to 55 percent of blacks and 46 percent of Hispanics.


    But the media makes it like BLACK and HISPANIC are the MENTAL ONES in JAIL FIGHTING OVER TURF and OTHER STUFF or JUNK.

    I know there are reports of HOMOSEXUAL and SEXUALLY DEVIANT ACTIVITIES in JAIL but that was LATER because didnt SOME BLACK PEOPLE DEVELOPED FAITH WITHIN JAIL TO HELP SET SOME OF US FREE. Namely Malcolm X. I dont recall HOMOSEXUAL (WILLING) or DEVIANT(RAPE) ACTIVITY widespread during that TIME especially with BLACK MEN.

    Now we have a WHOLE GENERATION of BLACK MEN discusses SEXUAL and SERIALIZED ASPECT of JAIL TIME.

    Are we getting that DUMB (less spiritual)?

    It had to COME FROM SOMEWHERE.

    Friedman Criticized Over Racial Comment

    (AP) AUSTIN Candidate for Governor Kinky Friedman faces renewed criticism of racial insensitivity Wednesday.

    That's after a year-old TV interview surfaced in which he said sexual predators should be thrown in prison and forced to "listen to a Negro talking to himself."

    The independent gubernatorial candidate already was under fire for recent comments calling Katrina evacuees in Texas "crackheads and thugs." The remark was taken as a slap at black Katrina evacuees.

    The Fort Worth Star-Telegram and the Houston Chronicle reported on the uproar over an interview with Friedman aired on CNBC last year.

    Friedman told the Star-Telegram Tuesday that anyone offended by his comment should vote for one of his opponents. His spokeswoman, Laura Stromberg, said Wednesday the fact that an interview from more than a year ago is resurfacing means Friedman's opponents are feeling threatened.

    State Rep. Garnet Coleman, D-Houston, is immediate past chairman of the Texas Legislative Black Caucus. He says the remarks aren't acceptable from a candidate for governor.

    Coleman had endorsed Democrat Chris Bell for governor. Bell said he saw the interview months ago and was surprised the news media didn't react more strongly at the time.

    Friedman also faces Republican Gov. Rick Perry, independent Carole Keeton Strayhorn and Libertarian James Werner.

    An excerpt from the CNBC show in question is on the Internet site You
