    This thread will be locked pretty quickly if we don't keep it civil.

    Consider all the special benefits for someone who is not a white male. I chose this demographic as the benchmark because the media is accused of targeting this group.

    Gov't contracts reserved for women and minority-owned businesses
    employment outreach programs for women and minorities
    college admissions slots and scholarships for only certain minorities
    licenses for "Indian casinos"

    Then consider all the (debatable) down sides of not being a white male. To keep this from getting real ugly, you must provide reliable info sources.

    possible disproportionate police stops and unequal legal consequences
    possible unequal educational and employment opportunities
    possible unequal political and economic power

    Add up all the advantages and disadvantages and select a gender and race you would like to be reborn as today.

    1. Why did you choose that combination?

    2. Can you empathize with someone who is not of the race/gender you picked?

    White male, just like in 1946.

    Hard to sort out all the variables, but probably not a white male. BTDT.

    Race and gender probably wouldn't be at the top of my list of considerations for Life 2, but they are the only parameters being considered here.

    White male, just like in 1951. Besides, Elvis was white and when Jesus Christ returns, the Bible says he will be riding a *WHITE* horse.

    This thread will be short and boring if no one answers the 2 questions.

    Please step up to the mic.

    Rich family

    Smart family

    Loving family

    Should do it

    Not a believer in determinism, but you really can't not want intelligence and love as the base of your beginning.

    Edit: Did I forget to say the USA! Where freedom and truth reign!

    You want a family that's rich, smart and loving? You want....like......all of them??

    You do that, you ain't gonna' have no excuses in life. If you're not ballin' with fat stacks of cash by 25, sportin' 5 bachelor degrees, your MD and your Phd, working 17.356 jobs, your family gonna' think you're a failure.

    Dunno man....that's a lot of pressure.
