Yeah, it's sad, how a lot of people in the U.S. think of prison as a place that has a lot of [big scary rapists]. That's a terrible way to look at prisoners. Thinking of that, the 1915 film, "birth of a nation", seemed to say: stay away from that group, it has "big scary racists" in it. Maybe, the ignorant bigots, in 2011, have replaced the film's "big scary rapists" myth, with the myth of: "prison has big scary rapists in it, myth". I think both myths are unfair to both groups of people.
Darn. I meant, "big scary rapists", and not "big scary racists". Please Excuse my typos.
