Expecting a person who belongs to a group who is constantly discriminated against to "just get a job" is like asking an armless man to climb a ladder. Yes, it is possible, but it's harder than you think (or would like to believe it is to suit your own prejudices).
"I'll bet neither of u have encountered this in your professional life: a boy standing in the open bathroom door,with his pants and underoos around his ankles, calling your name then bending over and pulling his cheeks apart and asking "am I clean?" That's what I've dealt with this week."
Phase I testing means we're not even sure whether this won't kill you instantaneously as we ramp up the dosing (although presumably enough of the lab animals survived to suggest that it's *probably* OK.)
