Former Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner on CBS’s “Face the Nation” Sunday said how well one does in life “depends too much on the color of your skin and how rich your parent is.”

“How well you do in life today, how good your education is, how good your health care is, depends too much on the color of your skin and how rich your parent is. And that’s something that should worry all Americans,” said Geithner. “Now, those are things government can do things about.

Geithner was promoting his book, “Stress Test: Reflections on Financial Crises,” which went on sale last week.
