I think absolutely.  That’s been probably the single best uniter.  Most of us want to have a winner.  We want to be involved with winners.  As more and more Black athletes got to Lane High School and to UVA, our performance improved.  All of a sudden, wait a minute, we’re better.  And these guys are the stars in many cases.  Let’s put our arms around them.  We’re all friends now.  Wait a minute, these guys are good.  Yes, I think that was probably a great impetus in terms of accelerating the process of acceptance.
