White Prison Gangs

The findings are summarized from a 2004 survey which asked the prison respondent to identify the name of a white prison gang. Table 1 presents the top ten white prison gangs in America today. The ranking system here is based on the extent of the problem across jurisdictions. For example, it should come as no surprise to anyone familiar with this problem that the Aryan Brotherhood gang is listed as the number one gang on this national list. The Aryan Brotherhood or AB’s have been documented in all 50 states, and this dates back over a decade. The book entitled The Hot House by Pete Earley is based on interviews from AB’s in the federal prison system and is a very accurate portrayal of the gang’s sophistication and its violent potential.

In the racially charged tension of the prison system in America, most white gangs are in a constant “state of war” with black and hispanic gangs. But, it should be stated that not all white gangs are racist. Perhaps we should say that even if they are racist, or have lots of racist members, such “non-racist” gangs may also have an alliance with black or hispanic gangs.
