Calling his opinion legitimate and not racist because he is "black," Democrat Representative from Mississippi Bennie Thompson blasted Justice Clarence Thomas as an "Uncle Tom" during an appearance on a New Nation of Islam radio program.
During a wide-ranging interview in which Thompson made numerous racially charged and ignorant comments, the Congressman also stated that people who do not support ObamaCare only do so because of their hatred for President Obama's race.
Later, when talking about a recent Supreme Court decision in which the voters of Michigan were allowed to decide whether colleges could consider race when accepting students, the host of the show brought up Justice Sotomayor. "And there's Uncle Tom Clarence Thomas!" Thompson added.
The Representative later continued, "When I look at the, the decisions that he's been part of on that court, its almost to the point saying this man doesn't like black people, he doesn't like being black."
When asked today why it was appropriate for him to say such ignorant, racist things, Mr. Thompson responded, "But I'm black."

Uh, racism is independent of Skin Hue, much less (intellectual) DNA.
There must be literally tens of people who listened to the show.
Simple. $2.5m fine payable to the NAAWP, and he has to sell his hockey team.
Bull-loney. I’ve been the target of Black discrimination, and I say this man is full of bull-loney. And, by the way, it’s the Congressman who is a stepnfetchit, not daring to wander off the Democrat plantation.
As Rush has quoted Clarence Thomas saying in response to this garbage [while chuckling], “I’ve got a lifetime appointment.”
It needs to stop because race relations are shifting into high reverse gear and the end will not be pretty for anyone.
If you actually read Uncle Tom, you find he was the most Christian, forgiving, almost Christ-like person in the whole book. But yet, being called an “Uncle Tom” is some sort of insult.
Proof that supposed ‘minorities’ and the left have never read the book (and aren’t they supposed to be the oh-so-smart intellectuals?)
If he owned an NBA team, do you think he would be banned from the NBA, and forced to sell the team?
Proof of white privilege.
If Bennie Thompson had any brains they would roll around in a thimble for a week.
“When asked today why it was appropriate for him to say such ignorant, racist things, Mr. Thompson responded, But Im black.”
And as stupid as they come
Piece of racist crap!
That is not ignorant, that is playing to the sewer (and below) with deliberation and complete knowledge! As for him being 'black', that is not the color of his brown skin, it is the color of his soul and he is as much of a race-baiting clown as was Birmingham Sheriff Bull Connor!
Too stupid for a comment.
I heard about this on Mark Levin today. I guess this character has been in office since the 90s. Definitely time for him to be challenged by a strong GOP candidate.
He appeared on a Nation of Islam radio show. That’s all I need to know about how racist Bennie is, and an ignoramus as well.
