James A. Baker III, a high-ranking Cabinet official in the Reagan, Ford, and Bush administrations, and most recently co-chair of the Iraq Study  Group , also known as the Baker- Hamilton Commission, learned in 2004 that he has cousins classified as black. One cousin, also named James Baker, broke the news at a political event when he extended his hand, saying, “How do you do, sir? My name is James Baker.” The “white” James Baker replied, “That’s interesting; my name is James Baker, too.” The “black” cousin replied, “I know, I have followed your career a long time. I’m your cousin” (Baker 2006, p. 420).
