      Bobby, this was not clear for moi.
      Would you kindly expand, clarify?
       
      The discrimination is ongoing?
       
      A prevailing sense of discrimination, would it not be the very mind at work?
       
      When not a trace of discrimination, or distinction......... prevails,...........where is the mind or thoughts to be stilled?
