its not because alex is racist,maybe its the categories they never ask about how to get fat white women with cornrolls or who has the bigest rims or fried chicken and watermelon ect... thats the only conclusion i can come up with but it never happens blacks cannot win on that game show. Why you guys think that is are they just not educated or what
... My name is Richard Ray and I live in the Bronx, New York City. As a teenager, living on Long Island with my parents, I can clearly remember my mother leaving for California to be a contestant on Jeopardy . This was definitely before Alex Trebeck was host. My mother, Althea Ray, is definitely Black, or at the time, African American, and she won that particular game ,including Final Jeopardy, and was declared Jeopardy Champion. I remember how excited we were when she returned home to Long Island and showed us a copy of the check. My mother passed a number of years ago, and recently my niece sent me an old newspaper clipping of that Jeopardy win. I don't know if there have been any recent black champions. If you look back you will find an educated black woman, who served in the military, where she met my father, and who was a stay at home mom, watched a lot of television, including jeopardy, and decided that she could be a champion on that show, and she was.
