Did You Know?
When Piper first enters prison, another inmate explains that people tend to stick to their own "tribes", racial or ethnic groups. The book describes the same phenomenon, and provides the demographic breakdown she experienced in prison "The minimum-security camp at Danbury housed approximately 200 women at any given time, though sometimes it climbed to a nightmarishly cramped 250. About half were Latina (Puerto Rican, Dominican, Colombian), about 24 percent white, 24 percent African-American and Jamaican, and then a very random smattering: one Indian, a couple of Middle Eastern women, one tiny Chinese woman in her sixties."
