“You’re too dumb to fail.  You never went to school to learn how to calculate risk.  You were not damaged by the Vietnam War, nor scarred and limited by the claws of racism during the Civil Rights Era.  So you wake up in the morning thinking that all things are possible… that the White man’s ice is no colder than the Black man’s ice…”
