    he'd know that if you're a poor black kid in the inner-city schools, you'd be lucky to find computers that aren't still running Windows XP...if they're lucky to be running at all. And if you're one of the lucky few who can get access to those computers ahead of the other thousand or so students in your school. And then once you're out of school, good luck getting scholarship money for college if you're not good at athletics.

    I'll give the guy a few props for this part:

    It takes brains. It takes hard work. It takes a little luck. And a little help from others.

    He should have stopped there -- when you find yourself in a hole of your own making, stop digging.

    Now to try to end the wars we ask our gay and straight soldiers to fight. -- Chris Hayes (modified)
