as I said I'm naïve but the thing I always knew is that it would have to be a black president who was approved by the elites and the media because anybody that they didn't agree with, they would take apart.  And that will happen with virtually -- you pick your person, any black person who says something that is not the prescribed things that they expect from a black person will be picked apart.  You can pick anybody, don't pick me, pick anyone who has decided not to go along with it; there's a price to pay.

FTFY, Justice Thomas.

Just call me old fashioned but I prefer a tussle between voluptuous, scantily clad lasses wearing a little jello and almost nothing else. Two grey haired lawyers sparring is really not that exciting or news.

No, you're torn apart for being conservative.

I hate to be the one to tell you this, but people don't like conservatives.

People aren't disagreeing with you because you're black and not saying what they want you to say - they are disagreeing with you because they disagree with what you are saying.

THOMAS: Oh yeah, I guess I've always thought there would be black coaches, heads of universities -- maybe again as I said I'm naïve but the thing I always knew is that it would have to be a black president who was approved by the elites and the media because anybody that they didn't agree with, they would take apart.  And that will happen with virtually -- you pick your person, any black person who says something that is not the prescribed things that they expect from a black person will be picked apart.  You can pick anybody, don't pick me, pick anyone who has decided not to go along with it; there's a price to pay. So, I always assumed it would be somebody the media had to agree with.


You're not persecuted because you're not "towing the line". You're criticized for seemingly being so out of touch with how YOU are viewed by the elites that you partner with them against your self interest. You're taken to task for allowing white people to use you as an example of the "exceptional" Negro because of your willingness to actively disassociate yourself from other black people. If the differences between Republicans and Democrats were strictly political or about policy then you would be right in your assesment. But, many of the people you've chosen to lie down with would sooner shoot themselves in the head before they would have allowed you to marry their daughter. The unfortunate thing is that instead of using your influence to bridge the gap between the elites who you try to impress and the black people who they detest, you set the bridge on fire after you got to the other side. You aren't above criticism. And we're glad it stings.

Frankly, none of them should ever be making public statements about beliefs, or opinions on other branches of government or politicians, or even laws that are in the news.  Of course some of this changed with the members on the bench, and some of this changed when President Obama directly called out the SCOTUS in his first(?) State of the Union, and looked directly at them as he did it.  That kind of challenge makes people get their back up.  They still shouldn't have stated anything publicly though.

Good point. If people disagree with Clarence Thomas because they are liberals and he is not, it is because he is black. Your logic is flawless.

"The elites" and "the media" constantly attacked Obama.  I don't think race has anything to do with it.   Nothing was just handed to him by some shadowy "they".  Obama became president because he's a great speaker who is fairly middle of the road.

But the line "I shook hands with him at the inauguration to be polite" bothers me.  Not because he's president, not because you respect him, not because you want to, but just to be polite.

So pretty much everyone that posted above me totally missed his point which was true. If you're going to hate on Thomas at least do it for legit reasons like his ties to Monsanto (like Kagan btw). His point about Obama being accepted because his says the things liberals want to hear from a black man is absolutely right. When black people say things liberals don't agree with they actually are called "uncle Tom", "oreo", and the like. As opposed to Obama who was called no such thing by Thomas in the article.

the difference is that the SCOTUS isn't supposed to be politically biased and subjective. they aren't elected. they don't have to court voters. once appointed they are supposed to be above and outside that influence. unfortunately that is part of the naivety of the constitution framework. that these parties would be acting in good faith. not in self interests.  I don't think the founders ever thought that justices' wives would work for lobbyists with cases before the court or that they would be doing paid speaking engagements for partisan think tanks

Exactly. Obama was accepted by liberals because he said what liberals wanted to hear. This is racist, because Obama is black. Liberals are supposed to vote for black people with whom they disagree. Otherwise, they are racist.

Liberals also criticize white conservatives who say things that liberals don't agree with.


I wrote this in another thread, but it seems appropriate here:
Leftists reject the ideas presented by black conservatives with the same vehemence that they reject the ideas presented by white conservatives--and so have most Republicans. Alan Keyes is as far to the right as a politician can get on issues such as abortion and gay rights (he even dissed his own daughter for coming out as a lesbian), yet he never gained more than 10% in any of the numerous primary races in which he ran in the 90s. He was even arrested for trying to force his way into a Republican debate in Atlanta in 1996 (he'd been banned from participating because he'd received such an insignificant amount of support in the polls); even Pat Buchanan felt that his arrest was out of line. When Keyes ran against Obama in the Illinois Senate race in 2004, he received fewer votes than Bush did in the presidential election; thousands of Republican voters in Illinois thought that Bush deserved a second term, but they couldn't bring themselves to vote for Keyes.
Two of Ben Carson's biggest issues are his support for a flat tax and his conflation of gay marriage with pedophilia and bestiality. When Steve Forbes ran for president, with the flat tax as his main issue, he failed to win the Republican nomination; even Republicans felt that it wouldn't be a winning issue in the general election, mainly because he refused to reveal how much he would personal gain from changing over to a flat tax. Forbes failed to convince members of his own party that the flat tax was a good idea; why should liberals or moderates be any more impressed by Carson's resurrection of that failed plan (or Herman Cain's, for that matter)? When Santorum equated homosexuality with pedophilia and bestiality, he became one of the biggest political jokes on the internet, and that was part of the reason why he failed to win the Republican nomination in the last primary race; why should liberals or moderates embrace Carson for doing the exact same thing that doomed Santorum's campaign? The ideas presented by black conservatives are being rejected by moderates and liberals for the same reason that those ideas have been rejected by white conservatives. It's not the salesmen who are being rejected; it's the product that they're trying to sell.That's the same nonsense that Bush attempted to sell in his two choices for Secretary of Labor; both Linda Chavez and Elaine Chao were female minorities who kept their maiden names, despite the fact that they both married white men and built their careers as strident activists against affirmative action programs. It's part of a vain effort to use what Dinesh D'Souza called "ethnic immunity. "He actually believed that he could present himself as a non-white advocate of white superiority and use his ethnicity to deflect criticism while ignoring the fact that he also believed in the cultural superiority of Asian culture (but please don't pay attention to the fact that he is East-Asian).
[short version]:  Why should leftists support conservative minorities (like Keyes, Cain, and Carson) whose ideas are so far out there that they're not even all that popular with mainstream Republicans?

I am black and a liberal and I generally don't like what he has to say about political issues. Because he is basically a Republican.

Black conservatives are a pretty rare occurrence because the party to which they owe fealty actively works to injure and disenfranchise other black people.  So when one is seen apparently working against the interests of their own race, name calling isn't an unexpected result.  Given some of the things we hear black liberals called, "uncle Tom" is pretty mild in comparison.

But ultimately it comes down to their ideas.  I disagree with Thomas on practically every judgment he's made in his time on the court and I fear that the interpretation of the Constitution which he espouses will do lasting damage to the country.  Race doesn't enter into it.

And that's totally understandable. What some of the posters who quoted me above can't seem to understand is that if a person is being called an Uncle Tom, oreo, or whatever then it is about race. It's not simply disagreeing with that person's political opinions. This happens with just about every group I can think of. Identify yourself as a Christian and state that you're not against gay marriage? Be prepared to be attacked as "not a real Christian". Log Cabin Republican? Traitor to gays. Republican who takes one or two moderate or liberal stances? RINO! Moderate Muslim? Assassination, acid attack, etc.

It's all just identity politics and it's ridiculous. We need to stop keeping everyone in a box because it discourages outside the box thinking.

Thomas would never have been Supreme Court justice if he had not been a Black guy replacing another Black guy on the court.  That is simple fact.  When confronted for sexually harassing behavior, he responded by using the race card and called it a "high tech lynching," which was not true.  Any White supreme court nominee accused of what Thomas was accused of would have been disqualified immediately.

And Thomas is accusing Obama of both being an Uncle Tom and a House Negro by saying, "I always knew is that it would have to be a black president who was approved by the elites and the media because anybody that they didn't agree with, they would take apart.  And that will happen with virtually -- you pick your person, any black person who says something that is not the prescribed things that they expect from a black person will be picked apart."

He's trying to say that Obama's success is only because he's a Black guy willing to say what "his masters" want to hear.  Which is B.S.  Obama is a Black Liberal, he says what a Black Liberal believes because that is who he is, not because he is trying to curry favor with his "White masters."  And for fark's sake, prior to Iraq, the Black politician most likely to win the presidency was Colin Powell, a conservative.  He was a Black conservative media darling.

I've said it before, the Republicans are trying to affirmative action Black conservatives into leadership positions that they are wholly unprepared for, and blaming everyone but themselves and screaming Racism  when those Black conservatives self-destruct.  Deal with it.
