Justice Thomas, from the article:
“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.
I bet you can, without much effort, find plenty of “Uncle Tom” references to Justice Thomas and his recent remarks. Because, in the mind of a liberal, it is not possible for a black person to achieve even the slightest degree of achievement without using skin color as an excuse for special intervention, legislation, hustling, or race-baiting. If a conservative black person goes out and achieves a good and productive life (as Justice Thomas has) without the allowance and blessing of liberal elites, you’d think they got up in the middle of the night, packed a knapsack and ran away from their plantation masters given the viciousness of the attacks on their character.
Well, imagine if you were constantly fed the notion that you, a black person, were excused from equally following your dreams. That there was an entity (in the form of a liberal Democratic party), that was going to lower educational standards, give you housing, money, and food, because they believe you are incapable of becoming and being a person of achievement based on your skin color. You were endlessly indoctrinated that you NEEDED special treatment and allowances just because you were black.
That isn’t equality. That is being trapped in an ideology of victim hood and racism. The ideology of modern liberalism. I imagine that would feel like a form of slavery. Because liberalism is the opposite of liberty, choice and personal responsibility. It IS slavery. And unemployment in the black and especially the young black populations points to the utter failure of racist Democratic policy promoting opportunities in inequality. I’d sure as hell run away.
“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.”
Yes, it is sad. Racism is uglier now that it ever was. But it’s coming from the liberals. The liberal elites cannot ever let real color-blind equality flourish because true equality is the antithesis of modern liberal doctrine and policy.
Actually, it’s not the black conservatives that are “Uncle Toms”. It’s the blacks that live by, believe in and promote the racist policies and orders of the master – the liberal Democratic party.
Justice Thomas, in conclusion:
“Differences in race, differences in sex. Somebody doesn’t look at you right, somebody says something. Everybody is sensitive. If I had been as sensitive as that in the 1960s, I’d still be in Savannah. Every person in this room has endured a slight. Every person. Somebody has said something that has hurt their feelings or did something to them — left them out. That’s a part of the deal.”
That’s right. Get over yourself, colorful victims. You’re the same as me.
