The problem with this analogy is that most likely, "YOU" do not influence the outcome of the Bedlam football game in any way. You DO have the ability to take advantage of free public education, public libraries, free podcasts, develop your work ethic and skills and take advantage of all opportunities offered. Take a job, any job, to develop a work history, etc. And if you are getting paid $20 per hour while a coworker makes double that, after some soul searching to make certain that he / she is not actually twice a valuable to the employer, you have the freedom to seek another employer.
If the only difference in outcomes between white Americans and African Americans is the individual deciding to take advantage of the opportunities given to them, why is there such a stark difference in the number of those that take advantage?
