SCOTUS: Segregation Worse Than Interracial Homosexual Rape!

Back when an affluent lifestyle featured plenty of


, and

, Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court [SCOTUS]
tended to do us the favor of dropping dead of heart
attacks or lung cancer before reaching the age of severe
mental decline.

Sadly, the
clean living fad
has taken its toll on the Court. As
Linda Greenhouse reported in the

New York Times
(January 16, 2005):

"From 1789 to 1970,
the average Supreme Court justice served for 15.2 years
and retired at 68.5. But since 1970, the average tenure
has risen to 25.5 years and the average age at departure
to 78.8."


Clarence Thomas
is the only Justice under the age of
65. John Paul Stevens, who has been on the Bench for
three decades, will turn 85 in April.

Of course, the Justices have staffs. But the SCOTUS
budget is apparently insufficient to pay for grown-ups.
So the Justices are aided by freshly minted law school
grads, typically in their mid-20s.

You might call them the Puerile assisting the Senile.

dangerous lack of contact between the real world and the

was evident in last week`s
Johnson v. California

An inmate named Garrison S. Johnson, a member of the
black street gang The

, has long been amusing himself via the

popular prison hobby

jailhouse lawyering.
He sued to ban the California
Department of Corrections` policy of temporarily
matching new and transferred prisoners as cellmates
based on ethnicity until their propensity for racial
violence can be evaluated. After 60 days, prisoners are
generally allowed to pick their own cellmates.

This murderer`s nuisance suit has now been upheld by the
Supreme Court. It returned the case to a lower court
with instructions to impose

"strict scrutiny"
on California`s policy of
short-term racial segregation (i.e., outlaw it).

, Justice Sandra Day O`Connor asserted:

"In the prison
context, when the government`s power is at its apex, we

classifications is necessary to guard against invidious

Yet no evidence of
invidious discriminatory intent or effect was shown.
California`s temporary segregation policy is not a relic
of the Jim Crow past, but, like so many of that

state`s innovations, a harbinger of
America`s future. California began temporary segregation

ethnic gangs
such as

the Mexican Mafia of Southern California

La Nuestra Familia of Northern California
, the

Black Guerilla Family
, the

Aryan Brotherhood,
and the

Nazi Low Riders
. (As their part-white /

name implies, the

Nazi Low Riders
are the only diversity-sensitive
gang. Because of California`s

shortage of violent white criminals,
they admit

of at least half-white ancestry.)

Indeed, there is no evidence that Plaintiff Johnson ever
actually wanted a cellmate of a different race. As
Justice Thomas noted in his

coruscating dissent
(joined by Antonin Scalia):

"Of the 17 years
Johnson has been incarcerated, California has assigned
him a cellmate of the same race for no more than a year
(and probably more like four months); Johnson has had
black cellmates during the other 16 years, but by his
own choice."

In her concurring opinion, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg
amusingly attempted to rationalize her vote for
biased race preferences in the 2003

Grutter v. U. of Michigan
case upholding affirmative
action and her current vote against neutral
race-conscious measures intended to prevent violence.

As Greenhouse

wrote in the NYT
(January 16):

"Citing her own
concurring opinion in the case two years ago that upheld
an affirmative-action admissions policy at the
University of Michigan Law School, Justice Ginsburg said
that `measures taken to hasten the day when entrenched
discrimination and its aftereffects have been
extirpated` should be judged under a more relaxed
standard. But she said she agreed in the prison case
`that the stereotypical classification at hand warrants
rigorous scrutiny.`"

In other words:

  • Separate But Equal
    in State Prisons: Bad

  • Separate But Unequal
    in State Colleges: Good

Thomas dissented devastatingly:

two Terms ago, in upholding the University of Michigan
Law School`s affirmative-action program, this Court
deferred to the judgment by the law school`s faculty and
administrators on their need for diversity in the
student body… Deference would seem all the more
war­ranted in the prison context, for whatever the Court
knows of administering educational institutions, it
knows much less about administering penal ones."

Proof of just how ignorant of prison the Justices are:
Stevens, the octogenarian liberal trying to cling to
life until President Hillary Clinton can appoint his
successor, also derided the "stereotypes" held by
officials who merely spend their every working day in

"One of these
[California] officials, an associate warden, testified
as follows:

`[W]ith the
Asian population, the control sergeants have to be more
careful than they do with Blacks, Whites, and Hispanics
because, for example, you cannot house a Japanese inmate
with a Chinese inmate. You cannot. They will kill each
other. They won`t even tell you about it. They will just
do it. The same with Laotians, Vietnamese, Cambodians,
Filipinos. You have to be very careful about housing
other Asians with other Asians. It`s very

culturally heavy

"Such musings
inspire little confidence. Indeed, this comment supports
the suspicion that the policy is based on racial
stereotypes and outmoded fears about the dangers of
racial integration. This Court should give no credence
to such cynical, reflexive conclusions about race."

suspect Justice Stevens and/or his 20-something clerks
have been watching too many

bad Hollywood movies featuring cooperative multiracial
, complete with black computer hackers,
acrobatic Asian cat burglars, and so forth.

contrast, good gang movies, like

The Godfather
are all about crime families.
That`s because criminals much prefer to be in business
with their relatives, whom they can trust more. As Tony
Soprano tells his cousin played by Steve Buscemi,
"It`s hard to do business with strangers."

because racial groups are simply

extended families
given quasi-coherence and
semi-permanence by some degree of inbreeding, gangs
seldom cross racial lines.

Stevens memorably

cells encourage inmates to gain valuable cross-racial

liberal activist group
pointed out:

studies have documented the prevalence of black on white
sexual aggression in prison.(213)
These findings are further confirmed by Human Rights
Watch`s own research. Overall, our correspondence and
interviews with white, black, and Hispanic inmates
convince us that white inmates are disproportionately
targeted for abuse.(214)
Although many whites reported being raped by white
inmates, black on white abuse appears to be more common.
To a much lesser extent, non-Hispanic whites also
reported being victimized by Hispanic inmates."

Rape radicalizes white prisoners. It drives them to join
racist gangs for self-defense and revenge. For example,
John William King, one of the three white men who
dragged James Byrd Jr. to death in the notorious Jasper,
TX anti-black hate crime, was a burglar who had earlier
served a two-year sentence.


Joseph Sobran

"While in prison,
joined a white supremacist group and covered his body
with Nazi and Klan tattoos. One psychiatrist at his
trial suggested that this may have been a way to deter
attacks by black inmates. Time magazine

quotes another witness
as saying King became part of
a group known as `peckerwoods,` described as `whites who
would not yield money or sexual favors to blacks.`"

this country was serious about getting rid of white
racist criminal gangs, it would do what it takes to
eliminate their principle cause: minority-on-white
prison rape.

too many powerful interest groups benefit from the mere
existence of white criminal organizations and their
occasional hate crimes against minorities.

What could we do about these terrible problems?

  • First
    we must make strong efforts to

    eliminate prison rape
    . It is the epitome of
    "cruel and unusual punishment."

  • Second
    if we can`t get rid of prison rape completely, we
    ought to think seriously about at least getting rid of
    interracial prison rape—that major cause of white
    gangs—by segregating all prisons for violent offenders
    by ethnicity. Then, at least, white inmates wouldn`t
    have to choose between becoming a Nazi gang member and
    becoming a bitch.

  • Third
    let`s stop making the prison population larger by
    importing so many immigrants with above-average
    likelihoods of winding up in prison—or of having

    who will end up there.

are we needlessly making our prison problem worse by
doing nothing to control immigration?
