Well, I'm Native American, and I was raised in a college-preparatory environment, and it just so happens I have an IQ of 185 which according to most people is at least one standard deviation ABOVE most whites. I went to Yale and I still have a hard time finding jobs. It's not education per se that makes or breaks you; it's showing up with the wrong skin color at the interview. I have a Math teaching license for 7th-12th grades in New York State and every state that's reciprocal with it; the problem isn't lack of qualifications per se it's people's reaction when they see me. Being able to pass the interview to get the JOB past people's prejudice is vastly different from what it took to get into and graduate from prep schools and the Ivies.
