    This study may sound sensational since it is voided, of any scientifically proven correlation between stern(heydays)hardships with individualistic survival-based reflexes, which one can acquire or develop through habits from any familiar and non-familiar physical enviro, and not necessarily slavery.

      Are you alluding that, there is a passed down gene called “the superior stay alert and focused black gene” that watered down through the whole Black American gene pool? and to make us more alert than the white americans ?

      This is my comic relief approach…lol
