I can't think of any other reason Bill Schroeder and Brian Anderson of FSN Wisconsin spent ten minutes discussing how articulate Chesapeake, Virgina native David Wright is. As in:
"What surprises you when he talks is how articulate this young man is. You just don't expect it."
"You're telling me this kid skipped college? I know college graduates who aren't half as well-spoken."
"The thing you have to love about Wright is that he's always smiling that big smile of his. He's always happy to doing his job."
Does everyone looks black when you come from Wisconsin? I'm reminded of a passage from Chesnutt's The Marrow of Tradition (1901):
In order to give the visitors, ere they left
WellingtonNew York, a pleasing impression of SouthernEastern customs, and particularly of the joyous, happy-go-lucky disposition of the SouthernEastern darky and his entire contentment with existing conditions, it was decided by the hotel management to treat them, on the last night of their visit, to a little diversion, in the shape of a genuine negro cakewalkbaseball game.
