Your prospective and candor are most appreciated. I have always felt that if we point to infinite reasons we can not attain our dreams and aspirations we are in affect dooming ourselves to eternal failure. While as you mentioned your comments may not be so succinct “short and sweet”, they are quite effective in expressing my sentiment.
People only have as much power over us as we are willing to surrender as so proven by the multitude of successful people around the world who were not born to any such “privilege” regardless of color.
Perhaps defining ourselves and relegating ourselves to being defined creates more powerful chains than anyone else ever could.
