in all her paragraphs. But we must remember we are all connected by 2 things...clusters and the internet. Let's take the internet. Nobody can get to the internet without a computer. Nobody can get to this site without a computer connected to the internet. Computers are not cheap toys. Even the webtv type computers are more than millions in all countries can afford. All of us here either have a computer at home or on the job. If you have a computer at home you have an income of some kind to buy that computer. Same if you have access to a computer at work. What I'm getting at is the folks posting here are probably "better off" than millions (billions in China) around the world. I don't want to sound racist here and (now) speaking about Americans only....white Americans, on average, have a higher incomes than all other groups and are more likly to be able to afford the cost of a computer and internet connection than other groups.
Trying to get results of ethnic questions here would probably be tilted because of the differences in incomes and the ability to buy a computer.
If it matters...I'm a white, American male.
