Dear Dr. Gates:

Hoping you can lend your authority to settle a longstanding dispute between a colleague and myself.

At issue is the answer to the following question: Which segment of the African American population is the largest?



Fans of Garrison Keillor's A Prairie Home Companion

Obviously, I don't expect any research conducted on our behalf; all we ask is your best guess.

Please respond at your earliest convenience: A dinner at Ruby Tuesday hangs in the balance.
