Elon Musk’s epic bumbling is a daily reminder that America is not a meritocracy
As the Supreme Court considers affirmative action, Musk’s antics show exactly how white privilege works
Immigrant boy turns up with what was it, $8,000? Creates four start ups on the trot (Zip2, PayPal, SpaceX, Tesla) and becomes the richest man in the world. Sure, subsidy sucker and all that. But this is now used as proof that America is not, repeat not, a meritocracy.
Jeez, that’s dumb even by Amanduh’s standards.
