You all miss the broader point, which is that, if you're at Harvard, you've made it already, regardless of what kind of background you come from. The people huddled behind Out of Town News - the very pregnant lady who sat on the ground there until a few months ago, the guys with the dogs who occasionally venture downstairs to scare everyone waiting for the red line, that one fella drumming on the upside-down bucket next to the elevator that smells like piss - they wonder why the citizens of paradise are upset, demanding one-dollar-an-hour raises for cashiers and lab techs and more-generous financial aid packages for families making $150,000 dollars a year. If you want to do something about inequality, do something about this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intelligence_quotient. Or at least do something about this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Health_care_in_the_united_states.
