Uncle Clarence Thomas used the civil rights laws and affirmative action to climb up the judicial ladder. Once he reached the top, he reached down and started to push the ladder off the roof. For that, most blacks revile him. In his memoir, he stated he doesn't know why Reagan selected him. I'm quite sure they vetted him thoroughly, and cut a deal. He is the black Trojan horse. He was a college militant in the 60's. He sold out to bigoted whitey for a lifetime position, and spat on Dr. King's grave.
You should be embarrassed to denigrate a wonderful role model and statesman as Clarence Thomas who should be considered a shining light for his people for the work ethic and individualism taught to him by his grandfather who worked his way up from poverty and did not scam the system by affirmative action, quotas and government set asides.

BTW, Thomas was nominated by Bush, not Reagan. Besides perspective your grasp of history is warped as regards Clarence Thomas.

So Thomas is lying about revealing his A.A.'boot strap' position? Read what HE wrote before you lick his wingtips.

Its not just Clarence Thomas.

Other Blacks are starting to see the light like Elbert Guillory.

Louisiana State Senator Elbert Guillory was a Democrat until a few weeks ago, when he left the party and joined the GOP. He's now released a video explaining what pushed him over the edge.
The video paints the Democrats as the party who are hostile to black people, and Republicans as the best party for African Americans. "Somehow it has been forgotten that the Republican party was founded in 1854 as an abolitionist movement," Guillory says in the video. "The Democrats, on the other hand, were the party of Jim Crow."

Democrats have essentially put Blacks to work on the Democrat Socialist Welfare Plantation.

BOTH parties are full of bigots who don't like certain people who are economically challenged, and social outcasts. The Democrats are tax hungry and like the welfare state situation, but the Republicans are overt bigots and would be just fine with 'Separate but Equal' laws. Wealthy Democrats as well as Republicans isolate themselves far from the reaches of the Black poor. Good for them, but don't hide behind some notion that Republicans care for Blacks, when everything they do is to repeal or remove legislation that 'forces' them to treat Blacks equal under the law.

Nothing past the 1964 Civil Rights Act, the 1965 Voting Rights Act and the 1967 SCOTUS ruling on Loving v. Virginia is necessary. Show me any politician attacking those.

The answer actually depends upon where in the United States you are talking about. Free Blacks had the right to vote and actually held various elected offices throughout the North from the very beginning. The slaves states of the South did not allow blacks to vote, or do much of anything. The ratification of the 15th Amendment codified the right throughout the United States. The Jim Crow laws of the South were an attempt to avert the 15th Amendment until the Civil Rights Acts of the 1950's and finally of 1964 put an end to those laws, if not to the racist views, of the Southern States.

If the Constitution is all that was needed to give Blacks the same rights afforded whites, there would be to need for the 1964, 1965, or 1968 civil rights act for fair treatment for housing. Over again the bigots have to be constantly reminded of the Constitutional rights that are there for all Americans.

There is no constitutional right to housing.

If there were a right to housing, there would be a lot more blacks in your lily white mansions. Hypocrites like you need to be forced to share your wealth.

At the very least you could buy some housing in Detroit and gift them to your brothers and sisters.

As always with your kind, your mouth writes checks your a$$ will never cash.

NO SHOW OF FORCE BY THE CPD AT JUNETEENTH but look at the gay pride in the park.

Security Keeps Pride Festival Attendees Safe Following Attacks
Story posted 2013.06.23 at 12:15 AM EDT

Security for the Columbus Pride Festival became a big issue this year after three men recently said they were attacked for being gay.

Officers patrolled parks, streets and alleys by bike.

People in attendance told 10TV that even though they were having fun, they were a bit more cautious, and were glad to see extra police on patrol.

"This is the one festival where we're really welcomed down here, they're excited to see us down here," Sergeant Patrick Shaffer with the Columbus Police Department said.

"I think the community down here was really concerned this was going to become a pattern, that Columbus was going to become known for this, that this was going to continue to happen. We want to come down here and do all that we can do to make sure it doesn't happen," Shaffer said.

"Their presence is noticeable, especially since the hate crimes happened a couple of weeks ago. It's been helpful and all the Columbus police have been super nice down here," attendee Nathaniel White said.

Over the past few days with hundreds of thousands of people coming downtown for Pride Festival, officers said for the most part, it's been fairly calm and worry-free.

And they want it to stay that way.

Even with a stain mayor the city cares more for the safety of sodomites than groid parasites. And national democrats want more for Mexcrement than for blacks while they laugh at black unemployment. Must make a black feel proud as a pickpocket. Maybe you blacks should not have squandered 50 years of gimmies and turned into a glob of lazy, crime fostering wastrels. Groid fatigue...coming to a diversity fest near you now.

Oh yeas, that's it. The availability of guns that did it. Typical liberal denial of situation. Machete control would be called for if the guns could somehow vanish.

IT'S THE WHITE MAN'S FAULT! IF all fails, blame it on 300 years of whitey's bigotry. Your government spooks allowed those ignorant blacks to get guns and drugs, it's the white man's fault every time.

Ya know, he could be saying that blacks are too lazy as well to go and get their own guns and drugs and criminal tools. It also fits in with that well adopted attitude among the stains and that is to wait for YT to come along and do it.
