SHALLOW RON, is that all you got from that article was tiny mention of his grandparents being slaves? He didn't mention that his family was opressed, he wasn't whining, he was simply stating a fact of his family's love of books and reading. Perhaps you should pick up a book sometime and free your mind!

Mr. Jones is far, far from being "all about race." What he is about is talent and hard work.
