No kidding, that's why you need to work hard to attain said opportunities. Life isn't easy, and it never will be easy, it's going to be harder for some to get ahead, I'm not missing the point. I just don't have a bleeding heart for everyone who doesn't have everything they want.

You can't solve every societal problem with a platitude about hard work, sorry, we're talking about things that go beyond individual effort and gumption. I'm probably more right leaning than you are and definitely not a bleeding heart, I just recognize we're a varied society in many ways including race. If we don't take care to recognize and understand circumstances affecting others and continue with the deceit that paranoid, self-interested capitalism and "hard work" is all that matters then we're going to continue ending up on the sidelines watching others govern.
