Robert Johnson on race:

"I've never heard someone describe being black as a plus; I guess one day it could be," he said, laughing...

It's from a story about his purchase of an NBA expansion franchise in Charlotte. Mega-entrepreneur Johnson vaguely irritates me but I have no brief against the guy, and from a social-development standpoint it's about time an NBA franchise was majority-owned by a black businessman. But Johnson needs to get out more--actually, I don't think he believes what he said--since there are plenty of venues in which being black is a plus. He need look no further than the two race discrimination cases concerning the University of Michigan that are now before the Supreme Court.
