In this quote, author Toni Morrison appears to be criticizing the advantages that people born into wealthy or well-connected families take for granted. She notes that the rich not only inherit money through family wealth, but they also benefit from “nepotism” and networking among people of similar socioeconomic status (“the old-boy network”).

Morrison suggests these social privileges effectively give upper- and middle-class people a head start in life by providing access to opportunities through family connections.

In contrast, those without wealth or social status do not have the same advantages “handed to them” automatically. The quote implies Morrison believes class privilege allows some to easily obtain benefits that others have to work much harder to achieve on their own merits alone.
