What exactly do you mean " the hard way "?
Something tells me you've had it easy as most other white people do.
( of race of people I assume you are one )
Not to make it a race issue intentionally.
I've been turned down for far too many menial jobs like clerk jobs.
A moron can be an office clerk; an office assistant; a mail clerk.
You know how many times I've applied to and have been turned down for those types?
I consider it menial. Not unlike flipping burgers; sweeping floors; taking out garbage or washing dishes. The only difference is that - to me; it's what I call : repsectable enough
in the sense that (#1) they offer higher than minimum wage.
As a minority even before the '08 financial collapse; it was nearly impossible to get a line of credit; a loan of any type or a student loan for college.
White people ( to me ) seem to have very little to no problem getting them.
So let's review.
As a minority like me; the cards are inherently stacked against you in finding a job. Finding a way into college. Owning a home. Buying a car. Renting an apartment or simply succeeding in life.
It's not that easy. It just isn't. But while I don't put in as much effort as I once did when I was young and naieve; I put in effort where I care to. The rest of the time since each negative result proves me right; it's those times I say to myself " gosh; I'm sure glad I didn't go all in on that "
- since I end up disappointed every time.
The real suprise will mean something when something ( if something ) finally goes right for me.
