One In Ten Index

One in ten, that is to say, for every ten, there is one of them that stands out or is different. For example, for every ten students in a public school, one of them will be Asian. Another way to say it is for every one who is special, there are nine who aren’t.

We as a race are obsessed with that one in ten, whether it is for good or for bad, we simply adore or abhor it, yet this isn’t a story of that one in ten. No, it’s a story of the forgotten nine, the normal, the uninteresting, the powerless.
