    There is a bias against successful white people. People like the presenter are always trying to give less educated people something. That is not a way to help people make something of themselves. I find it offensive that white people are made to feel guilty for being successful. People need to make their own way and stop blaming others. YOU the Leaders of THIS SANCTUARY STATE have caused these problems.
