"....I'm blacker than Barack Obama. I shined shoes. I grew up in a five-room apartment. My father had a little laundromat in a black community not far from where we lived."

-Rod Blagojevich, in his Esquire interview

Cause being black in America has everything to do with shining shoes, five room apartments and living and working amongst (or near) black people.
