Nat I'm going to post a separate thread to address this further. I think your SO will really appreciate it.

Yep.  Many of the slave narratives I read mention "n*gger fighting".

I tried to take snapshots from my tablet of some of the paragraphs but looks like I may have to actually transcribe the text and then point to the reference.

by equal playing field I don't mean exceptions

I mean it being the rule

even in slavery times, people overcame exceptional odds through a rare opportunity 

that is no excuse for the majority from having access to the tools to succeed ... whether those tools are psychological, physical (location), educational, economical, organizational/institutional and on and on and on

something else that bothered me about this (beyond the obvious)

I get so incensed when people argue against affirmative action 

freedom is one thing ... equal access to opportunity to a complete other

we still struggle to start on an equal playing field as a people and we need to continue to fight as a people

His owner won $100,000 by betting on Molineaux and as a result was granted his freedom and a payment of $500.

it's sad that this was probably considered generous at the time...

how heart breaking that his "owner" profited so richly and only gave him $500 and he ended up dying penniless in a strange country, thankfully he was free

39 round fight ... how barbaric
