As you continue thinking about this, let me know if you still connect the two (being police/judges & being leaders in the Pan Africanist movement). I think the immigrant success thing is different. My guess thus far for the Pan African thing has been that it has to do with the way living on an island can direct your focus outward while being American can direct your focus inward.
