Can you please reference one post where Cantrell says that the system is unfair to blacks and there is nothing that THEY can do to change their lives?

He does say that the system is inherently unfair to minorities and he has a point, although it's gotten a lot better in recent years. But not that crap you just made up. Feel free to prove me wrong, here's your big chance.

I know many minorities that came from crappy circumstances that are now financial successes because of hard work and taking advantages if their opportunities.

Is it easy? No

But, if you are willing to put in the effort, there are opportunities out there.

Many dob't take advantage if the opportunities because they do not have the role models as parents to instill that education is the answer. That us a completely different argument. For those people, it is their parent s fault...not the system's

So clueless.

Neither of my parents went to college. I am only the second in my family (parents, siblings, aunts, uncles, etc to go to college).

My mom's family did not even have running water and an indoor toilet until she was in high school.

I worked 40 hrs a week while carrying a full load at school.

My life was far from sheltered. I was determined to do better and worked my ass off in school to achieve it.

I could have easily claimed how unfair it was and be living like my cousins do.

Please tell us more about how it is everyone else's fault that you are a failure in life.

Is this the part where I'm supposed to overcompensate by blustering on about how I really bootstrapped my way to success, using the pronoun "I" extensively, which psychologist have found is a classic sign of a lack of true confidence?
