    Based on Fury's apparent age, his grandfather was an elevator attendant back in Ye Good Old Days, when being an elevator attendant, Pullman porter, or shoeshine boy was often the best a black man could get...

    Which was also when Steve Rogers was growing up.

    I'll bet this is why Fury doesn't actually mention race in his little parable.  He doesn't need to.
