No, the point is that you will fail if you don't work hard, are not persistent and have no talent - no matter where you come from.
I actually believe if there is too much money sloshing around in the background the chance of success is slim, it's easier to just spend the trust fund or whatever.

I went to school with some kids from very mixed backgrounds, the ones who were independently wealthy spent most of their early adult life high on drink & drugs until the money ran out.
