Just one of those things...

I was watching a gameshow, where the question was asked, "Who was the first African-American to serve on the Supreme Court of the United States?"

A few things:

1) People should know this because it's was a moment of historical watershed in the history of race in America.
2) People should know this because it was somewhat recent.
3) There is one person who it is definitely NOT.

If he had guessed Thomas, okay. In fact, if he had guessed anyone other than the one he did (or possibly Brandeis or Jay or something), it would have been better. But he guessed Rehnquist. I mean, seriously. Has there been a whiter white man in the history of whiteness? Even Stevens gets the occaisional bout of jungle fever. ("I'll know it when I see it" indeed.
