Did Bill Gates Say “If you born poor, it’s not your mistakes”?

This meme is found all over the internet in various forms.  As far as I have seen, it’s never presented with any citation as to where or when Gates is supposed to have said this.  I think it’s safe to assume he didn’t say it.  Also, note how poorly phrased it is:  “you” (instead of “you were“) and “mistake” and “mistakes” (where “fault” would be much more idiomatic).
