Interview with Austin

JM: Did you find it difficult to get along with other inmates? Please give examples to explain why you did or didn't.
Austin: There was a lot of racial tension. In the cafeteria the whites sat with the whites and the blacks sat with the blacks.

JM: What types of things did you have to do to avoid problems or fights with other inmates?
Austin: You had to swallow your pride a lot. Guys would say stuff to you that you just had to let pass. They would never get away with that out on the street.

JM: Were you able to choose an inmate as your cellmate if you knew one? How often would your cellmate(s) change?
Austin: You could requests a cell transfer if you wanted one which I did.
