As Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas learned years ago, being a conservative black man in America is akin to finding yourself in no man’s land when it comes to the never-ending racially divisive tactics on the left.

Sen Tim Scott, R-S.C., is a more recent study of that lesson, with liberals hitting him hard for having an opinion outside the liberal media narrative.

Appearing on ABC’s “This Week,” the Republican senator insisted that racism is not a partisan issue.

“There‘s plenty of blame of race on both sides that we need to be more sensitive on the issue of race in this nation,” Scott insisted. “It’s kind of insincere – or at least not authentic – to suggest one side has a bigger problem than the other.”

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell tapped Scott, the only black Republican senator, to head up a group of senators developing a police reform proposal after the death of George Floyd.

The legislation was unveiled late last week and McConnell is expected to bring it to the floor for a vote this week.

For what it’s worth, Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., was forced to apologize after calling the bill a “token” approach.

The GOP measure calls for using federal funds to influence the behavior of local law enforcement agencies, as Scott explained that their goal is to “compel them towards the direction that we think is in the best interest of the nation.”

“The House knows, and the Senate knows, that you can’t ban local use of chokeholds or state use of chokeholds except for the compelled behavior by the federal grants that come into play,” the senator said. “And by removing those federal grants, you actually position those departments to change their behavior, change their policy.”

At the same time, Scott suggested that police need more funding for proper training, not less.

“We believe that you actually need more resources, not less resources,” he said. “If you want officers to be trained effectively, you have to give them the tools called training to get there. That requires more resources.”

That too proved to be an unpopular opinion on the left.

The responses on the left to Scott’s views are downright disgusting — responses that the media would never permit if he was a Democrat.

Here’s a sampling of some of those responses from Twitter:
