Posted on 02/12/2014 7:50:52 AM PST by rktman
On February 11, Associate Justice Clarence Thomas told students at Palm Beach Atlantic University that "northern liberal elites" did and said worse things to him than did citizens of Savannah, Georgia during the heyday of segregation.
According to the Daily Mail, Thomas observed that the focus on race in the United States has actually become heightened instead of lessened through the years: "My sadness is that we are probably today more race-conscious than I was in the 1960s when I went to school."

Clarence, that’s because they despise when people of color think for themselves and remember when the Dems used to lynch them.
I think the North is actually more racist today than the South is.
Not surprised. Liberals are deplorable people.
Its a known fact that Southerners are a lot more laid back, trustworthy, loyal and friendly than the North Easterners. Everyone knows this. The percentage of Southerners that want to visit the Northeast quandrant of the U.S. is probably very low unless they originally came from that area. I avoid those areas unless I have no other choice. There’s more corruption in that neck of the woods than any other sector of this U.S. other than (basing this on thousands of fraud and corruption cases I’ve worked on for several decades).
This is a circus. Its a national disgrace [yea, I mean you Biden, you should hang your head!]. Its a high-tech lynching for uppity Blacks, who in any way deign to think for themselves. And it is a message, that unless you kowtow to the old order, you will be lynched, destroyed, caricatured by a committee of the U.S. Senate rather than hung from a tree.
And the worst "Northern Liberal Elite" was none other than back-stabber Joe Biden.
I remember reading his book and he pretty much said as much. There’s no greater bigot than the bigot of low expectations.
Yup. Listened to CT’s autobiography, read by himself. Very moving.
Joe Biden came up to him before the critical meeting. They’d been friends. Joe told Clarence he’d fight for him.
Then in the committee meeting, with cameras rolling, Joe ostentatiously stuck the knife into the back he’d 15 minutes before been proclaiming his intention to defend.
I'm marooned in soviet Red Hampshire at the moment, and couldn't agree more.
Faulkner said (and this is a rough paraphrase): Southerners hate the race, but love the man. Northerners love the race, but hate the man.
Faulkner died almost 52 years ago (he died about 10 miles from where I currently sit), just before I was born. I caught the tailend of the South Faulkner knew. I won’t claim to know the rightness of his statement as it pertains to Northerners today, but I don’t find Southerners hate the race today. Attitudes have changed dramatically over the course of my lifetime.
Remember the violent anti-bussing riots in Boston in the 70s?
I suspect most of those rioters still pulled the lever for Ted Kennedy.
I read his bio too and it was very enlightening to see just what Justice Thomas when through almost his entire life. To make the rabid libs even more rabid, he’s married to a (GASP) white woman. Love this guy.
There are still pockets. But that’s everywhere. Seems more prevalent in the NE to me.
