Default Any Connection Between Deontay and L.Douglas Wilder (1st Black Elected US Governor)?

Probably unrelated to Deontay but interesting if there is a connection. Anyone got info on this? I've heard Deontay talk about politically-charged issues (such as slavery) a number of times which may just be a particular subject of interest to him, but is there a possibility he's had some sort of familial influence in that direction from an uncle? Douglas had 7 brothers and sisters.

From Wiki:

Lawrence Douglas Wilder (born January 17, 1931) is an American lawyer and politician who served as the 66th Governor of Virginia, from 1990 to 1994. He was the first African American to serve as governor of a U.S. state since Reconstruction, and the first elected African-American governor.

...Wilder returned to elective office in 2005, when he became the first directly-elected Mayor of Richmond. After leaving office in 2009, he worked as an adjunct professor and founded the United States National Slavery Museum.

... He is the son of Beulah Olive (Richards) and Robert Judson Wilder. He is the grandson of slaves, his paternal grandparents having been enslaved in Goochland County.The seventh of eight brothers and sisters, Wilder was named for the African American writers Paul Laurence Dunbar and Frederick Douglass.
