STILL, Full Steam Ahead with Clarence Thomas (why we need to re-evaluate Affirmative Action)
Last week’s show was perhaps one of the most critical, in that we engaged in a very volatile discussion on Justice Clarence Thomas, in particular, his alleged stance on affirmative-action, his alleged, past benefits from it and overall, the impact that affirmative-action has had on black people and our progress in America.
One of our callers added an important perspective to this, bringing up a person who I’d never heard of, activist and freedom-fighter Percy Green of Missouri, that state which ironically, was where a young Clarence Thomas had it professional beginnings.
It was obvious, after the sometimes impassioned exchanges, that we needed to continue where we left off, but in addition, try to understand affirmative action.
There will promise to be differing opinions of what exactly affirmative action is, just as there will be, if asked to evaluate its overall impact on black people in America.
But, if we examine extremes, there will be a wing who feels it was and is, absolutely necessary, while others see it as having served its usefulness, even suggesting that today, it hurts black people.
Perhaps, as with many issues, the answer lies somewhere in between both, and either way, given the recent Supreme Court decisions on college admission standards and voter entitlements, the issue promises to be contentious, in the foreseeable future.
Hopefully, I will have a guest, who will greatly contribute to the Discourse, only on
The infantile name-calling never ceases from Democratic “leadership”.
So, Mr. Reid, Clarence Thomas is “white”, because he’s not a “card-carrying” member of the “plantation”? Frankly, I thought he was going to refer to the other male justices as black, but I guess, he didn’t want to be considered racist.
Same old tune; liberals can use the race-card at a whim, but just let a conservative criticize Obama …
As I’ve done enough to make the case that Clarence Thomas is indeed, a remarkable brother; wise, balanced, and I forgot – black, there really isn’t a need to defend him any further. However, what should be noted, is the glaring hypocrisy of those who call for [the one-way street of] “tolerance”.
This week, Barack Obama met with Governor Perry, to discuss the border crisis of illegal-immigrant children. All the more interesting, in light of the lecturing of liberals, on “compassion for children”, as it’s conveniently forgotten that most of their parents have abandoned them. In fact, an MS-NBC pundit actually brought – THE BIBLE into the debate, just when I thought, this was the “hang-up” of the “right-wing”.
Speaker Boehner has released the details of his lawsuit against Obama.
Despite the fact that SCOTUS ruled in favor of Hobby Lobby, democrats are trying to circumvent the Ruling, in the name of “women’s rights”. Wasn’t the GOP lambasted for continuing its’ challenges to Obamacare, after SCOTUS’ ruling? Oh, I forgot; REPUBLICANS aren’t allowed to mount such challenges!
Ever since his confirmation as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, there probably hasn’t been one so polarizing and spoken of in the most disparaging terms.
Black people, while giving Barack Obama a free pass, as he continues to show his contempt for black people, Thomas is held to a standard. In all fairness, he is not burdened with term limits and daily scrutiny.
But,In light of recent SCOTUS decisions, he's viciously accused of deciding and opinionating on the “wrong side” of black people.
His decisions on affirmative action are used by his detractors, to label him, anti-affirmative action in principle, while benefitting from it himself, suggesting a desire to prevent other blacks from elevating themselves.
2 weeks ago a caller parroted these sentiments, but could not qualify them. In fact, I’ve yet to receive any evidence of an affirmative action program where Thomas personally benefitted..
It is affirmative action, that strongly captures the attention of black people, like no other issue. Obviously, many have benefitted from programs which understandably and justifiably were created, to assist the decedents of slaves in America, Is it still needed?
Maybe, better put, in the 21st century, has it become so metamorphosed, that it has outlived its original usefulness, even being “high-jacked” ?
Will the recent Court decision to uphold Michigan’s ban on race-based admission standards, lead to an avalanche of higher-education denial for black people?
How about the Bakke decision, which many liberals seem to conveniently “forget”, in assessing the events of the day?
Wherever you stand on these issues, we can agree that we are at a critical point in history, as we see before our very eyes, uncertainty, confusion, angst and trepidation.
