Have ever found yourself in bed on a sleepless night, wondering to yourself, 'How does he do it? How does Johnny maintain his position at the top of the blogging world with such style and panache? What can I do to be just like him?'

Of course you have, and you'll be happy to know it's a simple three step process.

Step one: live in Ohio your entire life, save for one insane year in the far east, and obtain both a Bachelor's and a Master's degree from the finest university in the world.

Step two: become a mediocre writer. And I mean REALLY mediocre.

Step three: harass and annoy the creators of a semi-popular OSU blog until they give you a writing position out of pity. Coast forever.

Success.

there's a lot (a LOT) i could say about this entire subject, but

To prove the point in the continued inequality one has to look no further than the home ownership gap in this country.  Home ownership is often considered the easiest way to build some wealth in this country.  In 1970 the home ownership rate of the black community was 41.6% it is currently at 44%, where as white home ownership has maintained around 75% to 78% during that time.

if anyone is interested at all in how some of this happened, and a solid, devastating example of systemic racism, please read the following: http://powerreporting.com/color/

tl;dr, essentially: the AJC found out that banks in atlanta had been refusing to give out home loans to blacks for generations, regardless of their financial status. you had a better chance of securing a large home loan as a poor white person than as a wealthy black one, and this had been going on for decades. they took this reporting national and it turned out that this had been happening all over the country, and eventually congress had to amend ECOA in 1991 to prevent discrimination against minorities. it didn't work (not completely), and there are still issues with this nationwide today.
