    So in the show the whites stick to each other and the blacks with the blacks etc.. Now it appears to me all the non-white Americans have a mutual understanding and pretty much get on and if **** goes down back each other.

    Here is where I am confused, in the latino/hispanic group why do 50% appear to be black but fall into the latino/hispanic group? And technically aren't the rest of hispanics still white? Or does it only count if they are pure american white? Maybe I have read to much into it but I assume this is a good representation of prison in America in terms of racial divide.
