I bet a lot of people said the same thing about racism in employment.
I am beyond disgusted with people trying to equate everything to the racism that was a part of Western society's fabric until relatively recently.
Your failure to further your education has nothing in common with people who were never considered for jobs because of their race. You could have chosen to get a degree, they couldn't have chosen to be white.
You may think that you're being an insightful, open minded, progressive but you're being an insensitive douche with no perspective.
