I once asked him if he ever found a club he couldn't join, was he ever pushed to the back of a bus, was he ever told he shouldn't pursue a particular career path, was he ever denied a promotion, on the basis of his demographic? He had to admit he was not. I pointed out that no one who has been blessed with being allowed to achieve anything in life would completely understand the plight of those who are condemned to less by the accident of their conception. He finally had to agree - he had no idea.

I hope these women don't end up like Pussy Riot because they are protesting their government. I'll bet these women could get admitted to our top schools. I'm refering to an earlier article about a chinese couple who spent 2 million on a tutor to get their child into Harvard. Sounds unfair.
