    I’m of the mindset that it’s all about choice. Just look at the president. He’s black. Then, the bone-thin man we pass on the road so often. He’s white. Color doesn’t determine success. Individuals do.

  2. Thx for taking the time to comment. I am in the middle of packing up for vacation so I will have to make this quick. I still find it hard to believe that the statistics listed beliw are correct.

    I totally agree with you, individuals determine their own success. However I believe that education also plays a big role in determining how successful people are in regards to income. I think parents and our school system have failed. I was dirt poor growing up but my parents burned into my head that I had to have an education just to even the playing field. Big moment occurred while I was in the first grade. I got a 94 on a test but I misspelled by middle name at the top of my page. My teacher recommended I be placed in a “slower class” because I misspelled my middle name.
    My father came up to the school and cussed the teacher and principle out in front me. From that moment on I knew I had to keep a 3.5 or better average. Unfortunately most of friends did not have good parents and were put back in the slower classes. Doing below average became their norm.

    Anyway gotta go.
    Hope you have a Happy New Years
