In this current day and age, it is baffling to me that people think the color of one's skin holds any merit whatsoever. Is it ignorance? Is it just blatant intolerance? It is truly sickening to me and I can't wrap my mind around it...

Also question the value of sleep. They want you to sleep 8 hours a day, and work 40 hours a week/8 hours 5 days a week. The average human has 683,040 hours in their life time. (US) There are 157,680 hours from being born til turning 18, the average person retires at about 60-64, and lifespan for Americans is averaged at 78, so another 18 years you may not labor. So if you don't work til 18, and quit at 60, that's 36 years you don't have to work or 315360, so only 46% of your life you may not have to work / be a part of the hive, but 54% of it you do. 54% of your life, you are supposed to go work and sleep for a total of 16 hours a day, for 42 years or 367,920 hours, you are asleep for 122,640 hours and at work for 122,640 hours so a total of 245,280 hours you are working and sleeping, for a percentage of 66%, so out of 42 years, 66 percent of it you aren't doing exactly what you want, you are doing what you are told to. The other 33 (34), at least from the people I see a lot, you are to tired to truly pursue things you want, or do things. Let's be a little more specific, At 5 days a week (2022 has 53 weeks, so we'll use this as refrence) there's only 2,544 weekend hours assuming you get a two day weekend. 2,544 x 42 (# of years average person works) = 106,848 hours, 367,920 - 106,848 = 261,072 hours, -8 hours a day for the time you are not at work or sleeping (8 x 5 = 40 hours ((5 days)) 40 x 2226 ((# of weeks in 42 years)) 89,040 hours during the 5 day work week) = 172,032 hours of work and sleep within 42 years (86,016 each) making it 46 percent of what you do in 42 years, is work and sleep-what you are told to do. Or 25% of your life is gone due to work and sleep between the ages of 18 and 60, 23 % is spent under the authority of your parents (0-18) and another 23% is spent under the authority of your caretaker as an adult (60-78, different depending on circumstances of course) so 70% of your life you don't get to have authority over yourself, 227,760 hours from 0~78 is spent asleep/unconscious so 33% of your life, you're unconscious. Don't you think there are better uses for that time? Or the 13% of it you spend working from 18-60 (if you're lucky)? Making it a total of 46% of your life, you are simply just doing what you are told? What if you could spend that 46% doing what you wanted? I feel like, with doing what I'm told 46% of the time, I'm too tired to do what I want the whole 54 other %. Thoughts?
