"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."

If true it would have nothing to do with racism, per se, and everything to do with having been picked on by others and made to feel inferior because of who you are.  That would get anyone down, no matter what the basis for the picking on was.

You get hassled, you either comfort eat, starve yourself, or become the strongest, nastiest bleep you can be. Normal responses.

However, correlation is not causation.

To the left correlation is close enough for government work - unless it goes against their grain.  Then all proof in heaven and hell couldn't change their minds. :smokin:

What percentage of these "victims of prejudice" received food stamps and other forms of welfare? Maybe that's what makes them fat.   :whistle:
