The First Black President

by twit

is not Bill Clinton. Please make a note of it.

Do you regret referring to Bill Clinton as the first black President?

Justin Dews, Cambridge, Mass. [to Toni Morrison]

People misunderstood that phrase. I was deploring the way in which President Clinton was being treated, vis-à-vis the sex scandal that was surrounding him.

I said he was being treated like a black on the street, already guilty, already a perp. I have no idea what his real instincts are, in terms of race.
