Not really contributing to the discussion but I wanted to quote a friend of mine: "Man, if I was a handicapped black woman, I'd RULE THE WORLD!"I'm looking around...and I can't help noticing the striking lack of handicapped black women in world leadership positions...Just saying.
If they're a black woman its totally believable. Being an african american woman seems to be a meal ticket. Maybe I should tell adcoms that. It really sucks for everyone else. I mean I grew up poor in rural southwest Georgia, went to the Marines, then worked my way through college in only 3 years. But am I crazy enough to think that I'll even get a whiff from tier one schools? Heck no. I'm white, so even though I had a disadvantaged life, I've got no shot because I can't do Logic games to save my life. Oh well cheers to black women everywhere. (but I'm not bitter) Ha ha.
