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