The Talk

"My father when I was growing up said it very simply," Booker told Newark's Star-Ledger. "'Boy, don't you dare walk around here like you hit a triple, 'cause you were born on third base. You are enjoying freedoms, opportunity, technology, things that were given to you bought by the struggle and the sacrifices and the work of those who came before.... Don't forget where you come from."
