Justice Clarence Thomas: Northern liberal elites more racist toward me than southerners

The only sitting black justice on the U.S. Supreme Court told a gathering in West Palm Beach, Fla., Tuesday that he was treated with more respect by southerners during the pre-civil rights days than he is today by politically-correct northern white elite liberals.

“The worst I have been treated was by northern liberal elites. The absolute worst I have ever been treated,” Associate Justice Clarence Thomas said at Palm Beach Atlantic University, according to Yahoo News. “The worst things that have been done to me, the worst things that have been said about me, by northern liberal elites, not by the people of Savannah, Georgia.”

Instead of society becoming more “color blind,” the goal of the late civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Thomas observed that Americans have become more race-conscious.

Black residents reject Trader Joe’s because it would attract too many white people

“My sadness is that we are probably today more race and difference-conscious than I was in the 1960s when I went to school. To my knowledge, I was the first black kid in Savannah, Georgia, to go to a white school. Rarely did the issue of race come up,” Thomas said during a chapel service at the nondenominational Christian university. “Now, name a day it doesn’t come up. Differences in race, differences in sex, somebody doesn’t look at you right, somebody says something. Everybody is sensitive. If I had been as sensitive as that in the 1960s, I’d still be in Savannah.”

Yahoo reported:

Thomas spent his childhood in a place and time in which businesses and government services were legally segregated. In his 2007 memoir, “My Grandfather’s Son,” he described his experience growing up as an African-American Catholic in Georgia during the Jim Crow era. “I was a two-fer for the Klan,” he said.

Thomas, a graduate of Yale Law School, was elevated to the U.S. Supreme Court in 1991 after having been nominated by then-President George H.W. Bush. He replaced Associate Justice Thurgood Marshall, the court’s first African American member.

    These liberals are racist pigs!!!

  6. Jessica Hawke says:

    Liberals love to accuse others of being racist without realizing that they are pretty racist themselves.

  7. Anthony Williams says:

    The original purpose of the Democratic Party’s KKK was to defeat the Republicans. Republicans ran the Klan out of business around 1873, only to see it revived around 1912 by Woodrow Wilson. The white supremacy attitude still dominates the Democratic Party, and has always been worse in the north where Democrats are even more intolerant than southern bigots.

    1. Eric G says:

      Excellent point. A classic example of this was Florida up until the 1960’s. The northern part of the state was known as “pork choppers” and did everything they could to keep any Republican out of office so the Dems could continue to practice open racism and segregation, along with the murder of blacks not only condoned by the law, but law enforcement actually committed murder as well. Short term memory is the Godsend to the Dems; their ability to attempt to rewrite history is nothing less than extraordinary and very dangerous.

    I’ve found this to be a powerful antidote for the intellectual plague of today’s liberals and progressives: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0094KY878
