The USA is rightly called "the land of opportunity." If you have talent and ambition. there are no limits to what you can achieve. So many people have migrated here, and so many have prospered.
More and more the people who come to this country and succeed are Latino and Asian. They fulfill the need for brains and brawn that are essential to the continued growth of the American economic engine.
At the lower level of the economic strata are those who, despite the opportunities here, have never made it and toil away in low-paying dead end jobs. Whether its inbreeding or simple bad luck to come from a long line of losers, too many white Americans are neither smart enough nor physically adept enough to find anything other than a dead-end low paying job. But, because of the color of their skin, they belive that they have a birthright to succeed. How can you tell these losers? By their racism. In their deparate need to justify themselves they try to pull others down to their level soley because those more successful people are of a different race, religion or ethnicity.
Scratch a racist and you find a bitter failure. Whenever I read a racist post on this board, I say to myself "there, but for the grace of God, go I."
