I dont know. To a certain extent that may be true, but you have to look at the whole picture. Judging by my environment alone, I would have to object to some of what you're saying. Let's start with EDU. Highschool is an equal opportunity, right? Not every job requires special training or a college degree. True you may have to sacrifice. If anyone knows about sacrifices it's me. It's all about budgeting. The problem most people have (including me sometimes) is that we tend to live beyond our means. We dont know how to prioritize. How do you think the rich get richer. Some of the richest people in the world are cheaper than an old rug. Who said you have to have a car. Bus passes and subway passes will suffice. So transportation is really not an issue. What it all boils down to is hard work, and sometimes we are afraid of that. We tend to want to take the easy route, which tends to lead to nowhere but prison (physically & mentally) or a casket. If you dont agree with what I'm saying how else could you explain how foreigners could come to the U.S dirt poor with nothing but the clothes on their backs, and in 1 to 2 years time have their own business up and running- where? Right smack in the middle of black neighborhoods. Now you tell me why we cant do the same. And please just dont say race. Where that might be a factor, it's not the sum.
