    Whenever someone becomes successful, regardless of what walk of life they come from, their success is due to their own effort, whether that involved fighting tooth and nail for everything they ever owned, or just taking the time to work hard and to use the assets that taxpayers were providing them automatically.

    Paris Hilton agrees

    That isn't relevent to the topic or even my post. Therefore, I will have to post a meme about what I think of my predicament trying to argue with you, my obvious intellectual inferior.

    Sure it is. You spoke about people who became successful, so I responded by referring to someone who is successful but apparently contradicts your claims about the successful

    It's the same thing I did with the other simpleton's adages that have been posted - provided examples that show how unrealistically simplistic they were.

    I don't know about you, but being lucky enough to be shot out the cock of someone who owns a hotel chain doesn't meet my qualifications for "success."

    edit) Paris Hilton has done nothing to increase the wealth she was born with, and as far as I know, hasn't sought out any form of higher education. As increase in wealth and education are the easiest tools for measuring a person's success, Paris Hilton is technically a failure.

    Quite humorous. A nation keeps an entire population in slavery for close to 300 years, frees them without any real measure of support, and then asks who is to blame for their plight only a generation after many were even allowed to vote in a great portion of the nation.

    Sometimes it is only an outsider who can see the picture clearly because they are neutral to the whole scenario.

    The fact that it's only taken a generation after civil rights was granted for this population to produce military and business leaders as well as a President shows that America denied itself a pool of talent for 300 years.

    Whoever insisted on historically discriminated against and as a consequence disadvantaged minorities eligible for government assistance if the father abandons his family as a requirement for his children to eat starting in the late 60s/early 70s.

    Education, albeit a frequent source of improvement in many people's life, is not a requirement for success.

    Ms Hilton, by any reasonable measure, is a success who has a very successful and well paying career.

    Maybe part of the problem is that they are African first and American second. Perhaps they should consider just being American, might help.
    Only a fool measures equality by results and not opportunities.
