Cecil Rhodes, an Englishman who lived in South Africa for most of his life, had earned all of his wealth on the treasure of South Africa. This made him question: “If South Africa has such treasures, how much money can fifty three other countries amount to?”.

With the cities under a monopoly headed by the wealth of each neighborhood, one is left to wonder how such a system is fair to all groups.

    I Know Who I Want to Be I would not have cared about being eliminated from the Rhodes Scholarship competition if I had known that was the last day I'd see Lee Stone alive.
