The list author says: "Spent summers on the Vineyard? Learned to sail and golf by age 9? Played polo in college? Have reserve tickets to the Congressional Black Caucus's annual closing gala? Attended a ludicrously-priced private school along the East Coast, where you wore Lilly dresses and Eliza B flip flops on warm weekends after field hockey games? Joined Jack & Jill? Quit Jack & Jill?
If these things sound familiar, or at least very interesting, this list should suit you. An introduction to that rare jewel - the authentic Black prep - this list should prove useful for the curious, the preening, the indulgent, the self-flagellant, the historically-inclined, and new admittees to Howard University, who are all of the above."
"Although the author's biography tells us that he's from Boston, I find myself hard-pressed to believe that this could possibly have been written by a lifelong East Coaster. Check it out, however, for an excellent insight into concepts of wealth & behavior on the West Coast."
