From Clarence Thomas's memoir, A Grandfather's Son:

With Secretary of Education Terrel Bell, October 1981. I served under him as assistant secretary for civil rights. "Aren't you tired of just talking about problems, Clarence?" my friend Jay Parker had asked me. "Wouldn't you like to try doing something about them for a change?"
