    What, you live in a formerly all-white neighborhood with section 8 housing scattered about, in order to intergrate it? That's unfortunate that you've never seen anything like that. The formerly mostly white south St. Louis city is NOW a freaking war zone. Too bad you can't experience the real world for yourself.

    okay.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    because males have more privilege than females, regardless the color.

    I've seen that happen also. But they're few and far between. May I suggest some reading for you? White Girl Bleeds A Lot by Colin Flaherty. That will help you understand.

    let's try some statistics:

    Percent of recipients who are white 38.8 %
    Percent of recipients who are black 39.8 %

    Considering the advantage whites have, shockingly close.

    As a horse lover, I resent that comment. Let's call then two cheeks of the same pig's ass. That's more appropriate.

    On a serious note, the politicians are as corrupt, hypocritical, and sneaky as the day is long. We can vote them out but then new ones come in and repeat the cycle. It's so frustrating.
