Q: How does a society that claims to reward all with equality of opportunity maintain an unequal social system riven by class, race, and gender divisions?

A: By allowing a few select individuals (Oprah Winfrey; Barack Obama) and/or a few select groups (Jews; Asian Americans) to rise...and then telling the oppressed rest that it's obviously their own fault if they cannot do the same. And so they themselves are to blame and not the system.
