First, white people have been the predominate part of the population since the inception of the country. So it stands to reason that the predominate race would occupy the positions of wealth and power. There are also a considerable number of minorities who have made amazing achievements in this society. If one person can do it, then anyone having similar goals and talent can do the same. The "natural divide" is one promoted by Statists who want to establish straw men to incite jealousy of achievers. Someone told me a long time ago, "why would you envy the wealth of a wealthy person, you can't spend any of it? Go earn your own."
