    an opportunity he created for himself? :skip:

    anyone can get a grant if they show and prove... furthermore a ton of Black grants go unclaimed in education.

    one day nikkaz will stop lying

    our youth are not focused on education at all. at all at all....

    If only you had those advantages too you would have built Microsoft instead. C’mon breh

    That’s like saying if only you were 6’4 and could shoot 3 pointers like Stephen curry then you’d have his record :mjlol:

    Coli stays making excuses for things that wouldn’t happen or work anyway

    Yes, people hear things and are influenced from other people. The decision to act is on the individual regardless of race.

    Does the wash rule apply to crypto? I'm guessing no which would support your point.

    That aint true. Yall overrate cacs on here. I guess he just got the grant because he was "smart" and all black kids are lazy dummies? You do know they have black kids in advanced classes and that are on scholarships? Or is every black kid in America a mumbling idiot?

    You have very little idea who I am, so that's a poor argument. But that wasn't the case I was making anyway. Bill Gates achieved what he did due to very specific advantages he had. While both his specific advantages and his own personal traits were important, the specific advantages were the rarer commodity. There are easily tens of thousands of people in the world who were smart enough to do what Gates did, there were very few who were in the right particular situation to do it.

    Have the read the Outliers chapter we're referring to, or any other deep dive into Gates' childhood and introduction to programming and the initial years of the company? Or are you just making assumptions?

    I know who you ARE NOT. That is Bill Gates and Steph Curry lol


    There’s nothing special about being born to rich parents or being born in his time period. Both of which thousands of people in his era. Still only one Bill Gates. Just like only one Elon Musk and only one Jeff Bezos. The last of which was adopted and didn’t even have rich parents

    Are you trying to have a real discussion or just demonstrating what a logical fallacy looks like? :what:

    You used a known logical fallacy (strawman) to tell me something I didn’t say. I said I know who you are not, not who you are

    What are you talking about? I didn't say that anywhere. :gucci:

    The logical fallacy you are engaged in is circular reasoning. We're telling you that these people got to their positions in life due to very specific advantages they had. You're suggesting, "That's bullshyt, none of you could have done that." And when we ask you how you know that, you reply, "Cause you didn't!" Thereby avoiding the entire question of whether or not specific advantages put people in their position and circling right back to your starting assumption without logically defending it at all.

    where did i rate cacs?

    ducking reality is not fixing shyt. look at literacy rates and graduation rates. getting a grant like he got is possible for anyone that puts forth the same amount of effort.

    you know how people get grants right? present proof of concept or plan, whatever to demonstrate you meet the requirements for a particular grant. they have grant writing workshops you can source for guidance. all this information is free and out there... IF YOU LOOK FOR IT.

    and yes he literally got that grant for being smart that was his merit. you made it about race :pachaha:

    "black kids are lazy dummies "is your projection. we don't care enough about education was my actual statement. everything else is inferred.

    be triggered or face reality, dancing around it is not changing shyt.

    how many young brehs do you know that have hobbies in the education field?
