Hi. I appreciate your candor. I wouldn't say I hate facts, but they can be plucked and positioned to make any point we desire. You're right - different races ARE disproportionately affected by different things, but I can't do anything about that. All I can do is try my best and help others do the same. As I've mentioned in other responses, it's a shame that bootstraps have gained such a negative connotation - in lieu of a special powder to make everything equal on first sprinkling, the desire to dig in and do our best is the most promising alternative, in my view.
