Read this short article by Thomas Sowell on Townhall.com but people of all colors should take in this powerful statement made to then freshman Sowell:

… “Professor Sterling Brown remains as much a hero to me in my old age as he was when I was a freshman at Howard University. He wrote bitterly eloquent attacks on racism — and yet, when I was preparing to go off to Harvard, he said to me, “Don’t come back here and tell me you didn’t make it ’cause white folks were mean.” …”

Powerful.
