I am wondering if there is more to this story,  and that is the reason why he brought this up. But anyway, whatever.

A reporter asked Davis whether it was significant that he would become one of the few Black coaches of any sport at the school or more generally in college basketball. He spoke about the significance of his hiring but also mentioned the race of his wife Leslie and three children - Elijah, Bobbie Grace and Micah.


"It's significant that I'm African-American and I'm the head coach here. It's significant. I know that in terms of Division I head coaches all around the country only 26% of the head coaches for Division I men's basketball are composed of minorities, specifically African-Americans," he said.


"I know that it is significant that I'm the fourth African-American head coach in any sport in the history of the University of North Carolina. I'm very proud to be African-American. But I'm also very proud that my wife is white, and I'm very proud that my three beautiful, unbelievable kids are a combination of both of us,” he added.

I actually understand what he was attempting to do. Also understand why this type of 'threading the needle' does not go over well with African Americans.  At the end of the day, this is about him, his wife, and his children. In his eyes, this is not about pledging allegiance to any particular community. But again I get why marginalized communities expect some type of acknowledgement from one of it members.  i wish him much success at Carolina, he is going to need as much as he can get.

Revisionist statement if there ever was one.

Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'”
