Classic works that are cited in considering this relationship include: Richard Bardolph, The Civil Rights Record, 1970; William L.

Rowan, Dream Makers, Dream Breakers: The World of Justice Thurgood Marshall, 1993. Wickham's Bill Clinton and Black America, 2002, should definitely to be added to this list.

Those relationships tend to mirror the country's historical relationship with people of African descent. …
