Louis: Yeah, I admit it. I'm one of those pink boys who admit they need 
help in understanding the black community which you apparently know 
so well.

I truly envy your first-hand experience and your willingness to 
enlighten all of white people on the list.

You've never told us much about your background, Ralph. You say you're 
from Buffalo. My pal Rich from WAOK in Atlanta has done lots of business 
in the Buffalo area. He wanted to know if you're related to Curtis 
Dumayne, the "mayne man" in the Buffalo undertaking community. According 
to Rich, he was the president of the NAACP from 1953 to 1956.

Did you ever attend any Buffalo Simbas football games? Rich seems to 
recall that the Simbas dominated their black semipro league in the mid 50's,
behind the cannon-arm of Roosevelt "Red Ball" Jackson.
