Not descended from West African slaves brought to America, he steps into the benefits of black progress

“Not descended from West African slaves brought to America, he steps into the benefits of black progress (like Harvard law school) without having borne any of the burden, and he gives the white folks plausible deniability of their unwillingness to embrace blacks in public life.”

– Debra J. Dickerson, a black author and essayist
