With his money and stuff, you think he wasn't 'invited' to be one?
I would imagine all the wealthy blacks are freemasons. Every wealthy man I've known has been a bonafide freemason or a financial supporter/associate.
Also, the bumper stickers the masons have out there says..."to be one, ask one".
Me? Nah, they'll never ask. Plus, I know better than to ask as well. They'd laugh in my face.
Don't know why you wouldn't want to ask. Just go up to a lodge, call the number on the door. Fill out a petition. If you aren't a scumbag with a criminal record, they'll admit you.
Freemasonry is about doing something for your community; being part of something bigger than yourself. Civic virtue is the end result of masonic membership. Most lodges aren't rich or even have rich members. Most lodges are filled with middle class joes. Imagine that!
