Get over the white, black, brown racism bs. The essence of capitalism is not just making ****ing money. It is the freedom to do whatever the **** you want, and to succeed or fail at what you want to do as the result of your skills, work, filling a need, etc. If you want to be a professional basketball player at 5' 6", you better be damn good. And if you are damn good, then you have the opportunity to succeed.
EVERYONE has the opportunity to succeed
NEXT!More than half of black males between the ages of 16 and 19 are unemployed, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. And that's only counting those seeking work. Economists say legions of other young black men — nobody knows how many — have given up looking.

Employment and Unemployment Among Youth Summary
Youth finding work across the developed world is actually becoming a huge problem. Youth are finding it increasingly difficult to find employment, especially those that took out massive loans to university, came out with a bachelors and now have to pay that back.EMPLOYMENT AND UNEMPLOYMENT AMONG YOUTH -- SUMMER 2011
From April to July 2011, the number of employed youth 16 to 24 years old rose by 1.7
million to 18.6 million, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. This year,
the share of young people who were employed in July was 48.8 percent, the lowest July
rate on record for the series, which began in 1948. (The month of July typically is
the summertime peak in youth employment.) Unemployment among youth increased by 745,000
between April and July, more than last year’s increase of 571,000, but well below the
levels seen in 2008 and 2009 (1.2 and 1.1 million, respectively). (Because this analysis
focuses on the seasonal changes in youth employment and unemployment that occur each
spring and summer, the data are not seasonally adjusted.)
