Wrong. The Roots' bass player is definitely black.

I've seen The Roots live twice now, and the first show was not in any
way disappointing - one of the best live shows I've seen (and I see plenty.)
The second show was not nearly as much fun for some reason, though
the line up was the same (including Rahzel) - don't know if this was
down to the band, the venue (Subterania vs Jazz Cafe), the sound
(definitely worse) or just me...
