If you are born black you are much more likely to be born:

Poor
To a broken home
In a higher crime neighborhood

And that's before the latent racism kicks in.

I have found if you keep your feet planted dancing is much easier.

Thats why I said I would rather be born into a affluent family. No doubt the odds are better with a white family (or an asian family).
