From the book “Clarence Thomas … My Grandfather’s Son” comes the following.
The worst of the blunders was the Bob Jones University case. Bob Jones was a Christian college and seminary in South Carolina that maintained a number of racially discriminatory policies, including a ban on interracial dating among its students (The ban remained in force until 2000.) The Internal Revenue Service revoked the university’s tax exempt status because of these policies. The school’s appeal of the IRS decision was pending in the Supreme Court when, in 1982, the Justice Department, which had originally asked the Court to hear the case, abruptly decided not to pursue any further. The Supreme Court promptly appointed William Coleman, one of the finest lawyers in the country, to argue the government position in an amicus curiae brief, and subsequently ruled against the university. Like most blacks who worked in the Reagan administration, I supported the original IRS decision and was shocked when the Justice Department backed down and let the university off the legal hook. This made us feel like nonentities within the administration, and exposed us to scorn and ridicule from without. Yet my white colleagues found it impossible to understand why we were so upset. I explained to one of them that the case had destroyed the administration’s credibility on race relations, to which he coolly replied that the story would be forgotten after a few days.
He had many things to be angry about and yet he isn't an angry man. I think a most impressive person.

He was angry about that situation.

But being Catholic you would like to believe that he is close to sainthood as you prefer to believe are you and the pope!

Silly woman!

Okay now we have male gays impregnating female gays , so who pays the child support in case of divorce?
Does the male gay get the first child and the female get the second or vice versa? Do you get to swap if you don't like it and take the other? Do you have brothers and sisters raised in different families and not know each other? Who gets custody in a divorce? Does anybody care about the manufactured kids or are they just thinking about themselves?
I know many lesbian couples and they don't have or want babies.
The point was that homosexual can make babies. But you went off into la-la land again with your silliness.

Do you believe in the existence of the devil and hell Ink? You already admitted that you believe in evil.

I came close to resigning from the Department of Education over the Bob Jones case. The only reason I stayed on was because I still believed the Reagan administration’s commitment to limiting the role in the lives of blacks (and everyone else).

Yes he was angry about many things but he never became an angry man with a chip on his shoulder and I do admire that achievement.

They can but they don't as a rule and when they do it is beset with all kinds of legal entanglements.

The original point WAS that homosexuals can make babies, so people would not go extinct if only homosexuals existed.

And if only homosexuals existed, they would make laws to suit themselves, as there wouldn't BE any heterosexuals to MAKE laws.

My guess is we all have "chips" on our shoulders.

But Ink is sure to see a clear picture, as Ink never judges, respects others ... and that is why god loves her ... eternally and internally and externally.

Personally views back-alley illegal abortions as torture

SENATOR METZENBAUM: Prior to the Roe decision, only wealthy women could be sure of having access to safe abortions. Poor, middle-class women were forced to unsafe back alleys, if they needed an abortion, where coat-hangers are substitutes for surgical instruments.

JUDGE THOMAS: As a kid we heard the hushed whispers about illegal abortions and individuals performing them in less than safe environments. If a woman is subjected to the agony of an environment like that, on a personal level, certainly, I am very, very pained by that. I think any of us would be. I would not want to see people subjected to torture of that nature. On the question that you asked me, as difficult as it is for me to anticipate or to want to see that kind of illegal activity, I think it would undermine my ability to sit in an impartial way on an important case like that.

Clarence Thomas's second wedding to Virginia was held in St. Paul United Methodist Church.

As do so many people, he had a lot of twists and turns in his life.

Of course perception is more important to most people than reality.
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >

From the book “Clarence Thomas … My Grandfather’s Son” comes the following.

Only one detail stool out: a Hispanic critic claimed that I’d been “insensitive” to Hispanics during my time at the Department of Education. Over time this charge would blossom into the allegation that I was prejudiced against Hispanics as a result of an incident that supposedly occurred in law school. It was, of course, a fabrication, but there wasn’t anything I could do to disprove it, since the original source of the slander had been some anonymous person who didn’t have the courage to put a name on his claim. As a result it became part of the public record, available forever after to be regurgitated by anyone who disapproved of me. Cynics had long told me that perception was more important than reality in Washington, and stories like this made me fear that they were right.

Politics is a often a thankless, cutthroat business.
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>

From the book “Clarence Thomas … My Grandfather’s Son” comes the following.

The near-total unwillingness of Democratic congressmen to acknowledge the significance of what we’d done may seem remarkable in retrospect, but the longer I worked at EEOC, the more acutely aware I became of the difference between what happened inside the agency and what the rest of the world thought was happening. No matter what we did to improve our operations—and we did plenty—I continued to be portrayed as controversial in the press and treated with disdain by Democratic congressional staffers who neither understood nor cared how EEOC worked.

June, I'm sure you would never be prejudiced against anyone. That's more than a lot of "religious" people could honestly claim.
