I know this might sound funny, but you actually made his point. You said you made it by working hard and making sound decisions along the way. You acknowledge that hard work beats a rigged system. You are a living proof.
Then you turn around and align with a movement(#ADOS), led by a 40+ year old woman, who allegedly still lives in her parent's basement (cit. Tariq , Jason Black) and claims that her failure ( and that of her followers) is solely due to her lineage. She hates Black immigrants, self bootstrappers like yourself (how dare you get off-code), athletes, entrepreneurs, self-made men/women ... any type of successful people of her own lineage.
Don't get me wrong, I'm on board with reparations for descendants of Slaves, but not because of the reasons some people want to push.
