Footnote Hell

I just came across the following footnote in Reginald Leamon Robinson, The Sacred Way of Tibetan CRT Kung Fu: Can Race Crits Teach The Shadow's Mystical Insight and Help Law Students "Know" White Structural Oppression in the Heart of the First-Year Curriculum? A Critical Rejoinder to Dorothy A. Brown, 10 Mich. J. Race & L. 355, 356 n.4 (2005)
By ordinary people, I mean non-elite Asians, blacks, Indians, Latinos, whites, and women, including immigrants. See generally Reginald Leamon Robinson, Human Agency, Negated Subjectivity, and White Structural Oppression: An Analysis of Critical Race Practice/Praxis, 53 Am. U. L. Rev. 1361, 1363 n.9 (2004) [hereinafter Robinson, Human Agency] (defining ordinary people to mean "non-elite Asians, blacks, American Indians, Latinos, whites, and women, including immigrants").

Is there any just world in which that last parenthetical is necessary? Oy gevolt!

Also, Professor Robinson's article is an obvious nominee for coolest law review article title.

Footnote hell? You haven't seen anything until you've seen footnote #1 in this paper.
