Steve Sailer quotes the NYT below
[Judge Nicholas Garaufis, a]product of the machine-driven world of Queens politics, he fiercely opposed federally mandated integration efforts as a young school board member from a mostly white district in the 1970s. Decades later, he pulled aside a black colleague on the federal bench and asked him searchingly, “How does it feel to be a black person in society?”
Steve Sailer`s sardonic response is "And then Judge Garaufis asked his black colleague, "May I touch your hair?"
But seriously, if it was a "black colleague on the federal bench" the answer to Garaufis`s question “How does it feel to be a black person in society?” should have been "Pretty damn good. I`m a Federal Judge!"
