Truer words

Two quotes from Henry Louis Gates, Jr. -

"[W]hat happened to me, happens over and over and over to black men in America, and you sure don’t read about it on A1.”

"If you wonder why blacks seem particularly susceptible to rumors and conspiracy theories, you might look at a history in which the official was a poor guide to anything that mattered much, and in which rumor sometimes verged on the truth."
