Justice Clarence Thomas: ‘Northern liberal elites’ worse than segregated South

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, who was born and raised in Georgia at a time of high racial tension, said race relations are worse now than decades ago — and that he actually experienced more grief from elitists in the supposed anti-slavery North than in the South.

Justice Thomas made the remarks to a group of students at Palm Beach Atlantic University in West Palm Beach, Fla., the Daily Mail reported.

“The worst things that have been done to me, the worst things that have been said about me, [were] by northern liberal elites, not by the people of Savannah, Georgia,” he said, the Daily Mail reported.

Justice Thomas spent part of his growing years in a state where racial segregation was still practiced, at a time when civil-rights activism was heating. Among his recollections of his childhood: Ku Klux Klan billboards along Southern roads and a mandate to “steer clear” of certain parts of Savannah, the Daily Mail reported.

“My sadness is that we are probably today more race and difference-conscious that I was in the 1960s when I went to school,” he said, the Daily Mail reported. “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.”

    You know … I have a hard time figuring how it is that so many on the left many of whom are black have such little regard for people such as Justice Thomas, and yet they love people like Jessie Jackson, and others who spend their time in causing more problems than solving them.

    What how can these so-called do-good liberals be blamed for bias and mistreatment? I thought I was the only one who remembered that the dam-crats were the ones who voted down integration and equal rights. Wasn’t it Eisenhower who was president when integration occurred and implemented it in the states. Funny, isn’t it that he was a Republican? The only thing liberals do and have done is try to push down EVERYONE who is not elitist, greedy, and corrupt. The only religious movement within them is self pontification. Thank you Justice Thomas for your honesty.

      That is right cripesm. Judge Thomas is smart enough he has these socialist/marxist/demorats figured out. I only wish he could convince more of his race, but they see him as an “Uncle Tom”. They cannot see that in this country you can be whatever you set your mind to, if you are willing to work for it & don’t take the easy path.
