Under "Normal" circumstances you would be correct and I would wholeheartedly agree with you. However, with the likes of Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, et al, and the connivance of the MSM in fulfilling Geo. Washington Carver's warning: “There is a class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.” I just as strongly feel that it is imperative to shine a bright light on those who give the lie to their Bull S***.
For successful minorities who become public figures more and more young minorities realize the "American Dream" does in fact apply to them.
