Black History Museum Ignores Clarence Thomas

But his accuser Anita Hill gets prominent placement.

Washington, DC, was abuzz with the opening of the new National Museum of African American History and Culture in September. Both Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama attended the opening, and Bush was a keynote speaker due to his instrumental role in getting the museum started. The media fawned over the hug Michelle Obama gave to Bush — the “embrace seen around the world,” as The New York Times called it. But the bipartisanship appears to have been a phony veneer.

There’s a glaring and outrageous omission from the museum’s displays: Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. To add insult to injury, an exhibit on blacks in the 1990s includes prominent placement for Anita Hill, who accused Thomas of sexual harassment and was a key pawn in Democrats’ shameful “high-tech lynching” of Thomas during his confirmation hearings.

Kevin Daley highlights Thomas’ biography: “Thomas was born in Georgia’s coastal lowlands among impoverished Gullah-speakers. By his own account, he did not master the Queen’s English until his early 20s. He came of age in Jim Crow Savannah, where he was in turn ridiculed by white neighbors and classmates for his unpolished style, one of many indignities typical of his adolescence in the racist south. The startling racial injustices of his youth, by discipline and sheer force of will, gave way to the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Mass. and Yale Law School.”

And there’s so much more to his inspiring story. His omission from the museum was a deliberate decision based upon the abhorrent leftist narrative that blacks who aren’t Democrat really aren’t authentically black.
