Duncan Black:

The stories of those exceptional individuals who rise above the system are heartwarming, but as a society we compare those individuals with the people who were born on third and narrowly manage to stay there even as they inexplicably and repeatedly try to steal second. When kids born to insane privilege barely manage to navigate their way through their teen and college years, it’s absurd to expect a significant number of kids facing racism and other barriers to all hit homers their first time on the field.
