Gladwell's claim is that cultural legacy directly affects the opportunities given to children. He argues that his grandmother, having lighter skin, enjoyed benefits that blacks did not. These benefits carry on to new generations. He wonders what expanding opportunity could do for all people regardless of skin colour or cultural inheritance.
