Wait: John Grisham Thinks Kiddie Porn Should Be Cool?

Ok, you guys know I was fucked up on porn.

And no, not to go into some “by the grace of God…” but by the grace of God, it seems like, Sweet Jesus, at last, I’m off that shit but good.

Still…

I was always creeped out not only by the thought of kiddie porn, but by the reality of it.

And don’t get me wrong, if you surf long enough, you’re invariably gonna stumble across some of that shit.

Like I wrote in my Costanza Porn joint, one of the most disturbingly titillating scenes I ever saw in any kinda porn was some kinda Asian boy painted up as a girl and riding a white guy.

That shit confused the fuck out of me on a lotta levels and after I got that shit off my screen, I kept that shit off my screen, never to return to it or anything like it again.

I’ve always done a deep scrub, similar to exfoliating, whenever I’ve accidentally – which is rare – stumbled into kiddie porn.

And no, I don’t take a condescending position on those who indulge, I’m just lucky, I guess, and simply porn was, for a long time, beyond my control, so I can only imagine how fucked up it must feel to have kiddie porn be beyond your control.

I liked the simple shit.

Shit like this:

But the sad reality is, had even that ever become illegal, at the height (or bottom, depending on your perspective) of my shit, I’d have had to go to jail.

Now novelist – who’ve I’ve read and I like – John Grisham comes along and says that kiddie porn, which is criminal, shouldn’t be.

His argument is, well, I’ll give it to you:

“We have prisons now filled with guys my age. Sixty-year-old white men in prison who’ve never harmed anybody, would never touch a child.”

I’m pretty sure you caught that he factored in age, which, of course, makes it seem like prison is, or at least should be, only a young man’s sport and I’m positive you caught the fact that he factored in race which, as we know…

And I’m not gonna beat that horse again.

Y’all know how I feel about that.

How many times have a written that too big a percentage of white America believes that jail should be a place that only Black people can be sent to, regardless of the “crimes” of anyone else.

Too many whites, by proxy, see themselves as a race of Nixons, meaning, when they do something, it’s not illegal.

And what’s hilarious, or ironic or an insult is the fact that in the New York Daily News today, incidental to an article about prison overspending, came the fact that it costs $143k a year or $742 dollars a day, more than the price of a Harvard education, to keep a criminal in jail.

And what’s hinted at by statements like Grisham’s who is, I might add, a former lawyer, is that all those behind bars are supposed to be Black.

Makes you wonder how many fellow lawyers, juries, and those entrusted with passing judgement and passing down sentencing, are in complete agreement with that perspective.
