The points expressed in his explanation of bullet # 1 are the single biggest factors keeping the black man down in America. They're gonna be behind first-generation Mexicans before long!

and has a very successful business, he also had a partner who had a business degree with a entreprenurial concentration. Without my dad's creative street smarts or his partner`s business background to get the business started, the business wouldn`t have become so successful. I think what Olson is trying to say is that people should stop thinking that having a college degree automatically means you`ll be successful in life. Without drive, intellect, or creativity, a college degree doesn`t mean much, but if you have all of it, your future looks pretty bright.
I should also mention that college isn`t the same today as it was 50 years ago. (At least, I don`t think it is, please, correct me if I`m wrong). We have many more community colleges now, a higher % of people are going to college, not just because people say we need it, but because community colleges offer degrees for less $$.
As for the doctor thing. When it comes to serious illnesses or operations, always get a 2nd opinion.
