Clarence Thomas's Astonishing Opinion on a Racist Mississippi Prosecutor

Well, considering Thomas, perhaps NOT so surprising!

For some reason, I am not able to post excerpts without typing the whole thing out, but this is well worth a read.

1. I have a friend who is a bicultured, black American and his comments on Facebook

are astonishing. The only thing that I can think has happened to him is that he worked for government departments and has been around a lot of conservative co-workers and supervisors. So he has developed a personality that gives him freedom and acceptance among this core, by being worse that the worst racists. When he talks about black racism, what he means is that blacks play the black card too often.

It makes me sick, and I've stopped responding to his posts, because he knows how I feel.

But, what really pisses me off is that this racist, conservative mindset is entrenched in our government agencies.

3. It is truly sad to

see how the worst instincts in us all are being brought forth by the worst of human beings who - appallingly - occupies the WH.

But, as you point out, the conservative mindset in our government agencies is not only Trump.

People like Thomas and your friend(?) remind me of those women who betray other women.

2. Justice Ruckus is a sick man.

I hope he leaves the Court during the next Democratic administration, whether by death, resignation, or impeachment.
