I don't think this is the case. Yes there is a largely discriminatory population in the USA, however I beleive that where you have to start with is
right between your ears, You can either let those things play into your conciousness and plague any attempt you may make at bettering yourself, but it
is your mind, your thoughts and your actions that will either help you progress, or knock you down and chain you. That's the first place you start
within yourself, then you progress it outwards to within the family, then you progress it out towards your community, then further...etc. etc...
that's the only way to change your circumstances and to reflect it into the world around you. There are many people who were bullied who were made
fun of and tormented daily in school, who have not heard those words deep within themselves and let it roll off their backs and have gotten further in
life, the same goes for racism. It may hurt you, but if you let it fester and fester...you can never truly progress. You can always look at it the old
way "sticks and stones may break your bones, but names will never hurt you" This means actions also, if someone discriminates from hiring you... go
to the competition and if they hire you, be their top executive raking in millions of dollars for that competition and then let them know it's you
that helped their competition beat them, the best revenge is living well... so many never truly understand this concept.
