ARE YOU SAYING PAUL ROBESON DID NOT RUN, CHANGE OR IMPRESS THE WORLD? I KNOW YOUR GOAL IS TO PROMOTE YOUR WEALTH BUILDING PROGRAM BUT THE ARTICLE YOU REFERENCED IS DEAD WRONG ON THEIR SCREWED RESEARCH. THE FIRST people THAT popped in my head when I saw your subject line was Michelle Obama and Alicia keys; they were both valedictorians and both have impacted the world. SO THE ZERO PERCENT FAKE NEWS IS BULLSHIT. I know you're in the business of building wealth but why are you measuring success by simply becoming a millionaire; and a lot of them are private failures. HILLARY CLINTON, Judge Sonya Sotomayor were all VALEDICTORIANS. How many valedictorians go on to run, change or impress the world; are you freakin kidding? ...W.E.B Du Bois, Ella Baker, Coretta Scott Key, Loretta Lynch, Susan Rice, Ronald McNair (astronaut), Entrepreneur Jeff Bezos, Why are you measuring success as being a damn millionaire. EVEN AS MUCH AS YOU DO TO PROMOTE WEALTH BUILDING, YOU HAVE NOT MADE A SIGNIFICANT IMPACT ON THE WORLD, BUT THIS DOES NOT MEAN YOU ARE NOT SUCCESSFUL, SO DON'T TRY AND PUT ANYONE ELSE IN THE SAME SMALL BOX.

Exactly why Bob Marley said if he'd been educated he'd have been a fool! similarly If Malcolm X had become a Lawyer as he wished as a child, he'd probably been a quet attorney till today. Great insight Dr. Watkins!

This definitely makes sense. Those who are most likely to settle into a system and use solely their "book smarts" are less likely to be innovative.
