    I'd be glad to, but you can't fix a problem if you can't identify it correctly. Or, as James Baldwin said, “Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.”

      You asked me if all other things were equal would there be no advantages. I’d believe yes. . As everything would be equal. Specifically I would think money.
      I gave my pronouns because you were answering me but referred to "them". Not sure why.

      How do you explain the black-white income and wealth gap?

          https://itep.org/amazon-in-its-prime...-income-taxes/

          Amazon, the ubiquitous purveyor of two-day delivery of just about everything, nearly doubled its profits to $11.2 billion in 2018 from $5.6 billion the previous year and, once again, didn’t pay a single cent of federal income taxes.

          The company’s newest corporate filing reveals that, far from paying the statutory 21 percent income tax rate on its U.S. income in 2018, Amazon reported a federal income tax rebate of $129 million. For those who don’t have a pocket calculator handy, that works out to a tax rate of negative 1 percent. The fine print of Amazon’s income tax disclosure shows that this achievement is partly due to various unspecified “tax credits” as well as a tax break for executive stock options.

          This isn’t the first year that the cyber-retailing giant has avoided federal taxes. Last year, the company paid no federal corporate income taxes on $5.6 billion in U.S. income.

              And here's a quick summary from Forbes - not the Times - that includes the effects of historical policies and systemic racism on wealth: https://www.forbes.com/sites/brianth.../#1cebb2947a48

                        It could be if you put it in a cone. Or between 2 cones.

                          So your solution is advice that would fit on a bumper sticker? Why don't you tell an equal number just to get rich, and see which works better? ...because I bet getting rich won't solve everything but it would greatly help.

                            You don’t have to go that far. There is such a thing as an icebean sandwich. There’s such a thing as a roast beef sandwich, too, but roast beef isn’t a sandwich.

                              Roast Beef and Ice Bean sandwich sounds throughly disgusting.

                                Jessie smollett cAse looks more and more like a hoax everyday.

                                Why did he keep the noose around his neck when he wasn’t originally going to call the cops
                                Wow nice call on this. Hopefully his punishment isnt too harsh, his bad decisions werent really his fault, its white people and slavery that made him do it.
