YES. (I hate saying that but, yes)

Most of the people you just mentioned are so accomplished, they are token to most everyone in the population. (and I have a man crush on Herman Cain)

Find me a few famous black gangster rappers.

Find me a Hispanic woman with 7 kids, has never had a job and has a husband in jail.

Find me an off the grid granola eating vegan hippy.

The sad thing is....the first two want what you want. To have much and live well. The third, well, lol, maybe not.
