One of the briefs pointed out that most of the black scientists in this country don't come from schools like the University of Texas.

Yes: Demanding that no criticisms be voiced to counter that hagiography is to enable false history and a propagandistic whitewashing of bad acts, distortions that become quickly ossified and then endure by virtue of no opposition and the powerful emotions created by death.

Depends on the confidence intervals I think. But diet, smoking and substance abuse all reflect an education (or lack thereof) about your health. The other thing is that I think people living in poverty tend to gravitate toward quick fixes because they think they'll never get out.
