I have a white pen pal who is in for second degree murder and is neither gay nor violent. He's been in over a decade with zero incidence of violence. He also has no gang affiliation and is not racist.

Having said that, prison culture is unique and unlike anything on the outside. People do tend to stick with their own race, but there is also violence inside those groups. You have a lot of people with no coping skills bunched together and not a lot going on in terms of personal development in the program.

Anyone who is smart, no matter what race, is going to reserve violence for when all other alternatives have been exhausted. Just like in the outside world. We have wars going on every day all over the world because of intolerance toward people who are different, greed and ego.
