You would think that after the civil rights movement and half a century of affirmative action, that the racial income gap would be closing, but nothing could be further from the truth.


People look at billionaire media queen Oprah and President Obama and think blacks have made real progress. FALSE!  Oprah has made real progress because she was born with a freakishly large brain and she used that brain power to not only make herself a success, but to put the Obamas in the White House.



However without this rare genetic mutation that caused one person to jump from poverty to Queen of the World in record time,   there’s been little progress.




And yes I realize a genetic mutation is a “just-so story” but if other people get to tell them, why not me?  At least I have physical evidence.
