Our inmates seem dead set that we are all prejudice against what ever they are. So much so, that they make themselves look like idiots. Yesterday, we had one inmate tell our officer that he is homophobic and was picking on him simply because that particular inmate is gay. The funny thing is, so is the officer. The inmate didn't know that of course, but that officer has been in a relationship with a man for over 20 years!
Another time, one of our LTs was walking the tiers and was accused of being racists against Mexicans. The funny thing is he IS a Mexican. He looks it AND has a very common Mexican last name. Some of these guys are just so used to using prejudice as an excuse that they have no idea how stupid they look. Not everyone is prejudice. In fact, most of us aren't and couldn't care less what race or sexual orientation you are. Get over yourself!
