Former Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner on CBSs Face the Nation Sunday said how well one does in life depends too much on the color of your skin and how rich your parent is.
How well you do in life today, how good your education is, how good your health care is, depends too much on the color of your skin and how rich your parent is. And thats something that should worry all Americans, said Geithner. Now, those are things government can do things about.

Obama never has appointed anyone who wasn’t a Stalinist.
Shaddup and go wreck another country, Dr. Strangelove........
Not many Indian immigrants have PhD’s.
Not many bring loads of money.
And 95% of them have brown/dark brown/black skins.
Yet as a group, Indian immigrants earn more than any other ethnic groups in America, including white Americans, Jews, European immigrants, Oriental immigrants...all of them!
Proves once for all, United States is a country where opportunity exists to better your life if you work hard.
It is a matter of family culture and education and hard work, not color of skin any more.
“Geithner: How Well You Do in Life Depends Too Much on the Color of Your Skin”
Wow, and all this time I thought how well you do in life depended on how creative you were with TurboTax.
What an a$$hole. It depends on intelligence, hard work, luck, and the help that others give you. It does not depend on the color of your skin.
this country elected a half black man twice for president if im not mistaken. . .

I agree. Mr. Geitner, you should be ashamed of yourself, using your white privilege in such a fashion. To make amends, you must surrender all of your property and financial holdings to me for immediate re-distribution.
There. That oughta doit.
Well considering how a loser like Geithner made it, maybe he has a point.
He got there on merit.
It's the rest of us who didn't.
I notice both Geithner's father and his mother's father had connections with the Ford Foundation or Ford Motor Company.
For that matter, he may have gotten the Treasury job because Obama's mother was also involved with the Ford Foundation.
Privileges, connections and advantages like that are something the government isn't going to do anything about.
...and not enough on how artfully and convincingly you can lie.
I am retiring from the military as an O-5. Oh how I wish I was Black!!!!! Anything but white. I’d be hired immediately.
I don’t think Geithner’s IQ is all that high. Nor that of the POTUS, or a lot of crony capitalists.
if Obamugabe were born white skinned he wouldn’t have gotten anywhere in politics.
According to the United States Supreme Court, you are any gender or race that you "feel" that you are.
Very good point.
The people he is referring to average 85.
Hey Tim, tell it Oprah, Ben Carson, Herman Cain, and a whole bunch of others who are successful because of their talents, drive, ambition, attitude, etc. They didn’t run around yellowing, “poor me, I’m a minority.”
