As Twitchy reported, the Supreme Court voted 6 to 2 today (Justice Kagan did not participate) to uphold Michigan’s right to prohibit affirmative action in college admissions. SCOTUS was castigated by plenty of angry liberals, but Justice Clarence Thomas was singled out for particularly nasty treatment:

            Lack of good character is not excused by having one’s father assassinated. And the character problems of the children seem not to have any connection with fear, but with fighting over who gets the inheritance and fighting over property rights.

My ancestors weren’t even here at that time, and my ancestors who did come here were non-English speaking, impoverished, injured, ill, hungry, freezing cold, and shoeless as they struggled to live here. I, myself, was bused out to farms as a 7 year old, getting up at 4:00AM and getting home at 5:00PM. Some of us dug our way out one job at a time, one degree at a time. I’m a white female and an electrical engineer, getting my degree in the 80s. I don’t owe anyone anything. Time for blacks to fix the culture of teen pregnancy, dropping out, gang violence, prison, fatherless homes, etc. Those are things that Whitey can’t fix and that Al Sharpton doesn’t want to fix.

            That is not a racial thing. That is a power thing. Many inventions and writings created by poor whites or unsophisticated whites have also been stolen, or bought for a pittance. A modern example is the man who invented the intermittent wiper blade system had his idea ripped off by the big car companies and had a long and expensive court battle before he was vindicated. That is just one example in a sea. It does you no good to blame everything on racism. This is the divide and conquer strategy of the ruling elite. If you, and everyone, would just pause and take a look, we would find how much we have in common, good and bad, instead of standing across the room as enemies.

I don’t vote party line either, of the opposite party has my position on the issues then that’s who gets my vote. I pay the twisted ideology off the ruling elite no mind, that was the point.

            As incoherent as that was, I think I get the gist of it. And I don’t buy it. The sort of thing you are talking about does happen, but it is more of a crapp shoot kind of thing these days. For example, a new species of corporate corruption has arisen out of genetically modified vegetables. If pollen from GM crops cross pollinates a neighbor’s crop and is detected the following year, he is legally forced to cead his land to them. Once, this sort of thing might have been more easily done to black farmers. Nowadays, it is done equally to everyone downwind of GM tyrants. Racism was originally invented during the colonial period to rationalize despicable greed, now all despicable greed needs is imminent domain. A few white trash ignoramuses maintain racism out of cultural habit, but the surest sign that it is on it’s way out is that it’s not profitable for anyone anymore. REVERSE-racism, however, is still very profitable for certain hypocrites; Judge Thomas realized all this a long time ago, and now he is being condemned for voting for common sense.

            Not! By no means is this true. Do your homework on this one, Rap music was out way before this record ever came out. As a matter of fact when Rapture came out we were making fun of it for Blondies bad attempt at rapping. Rappers Delight was the first actual record to hit the airways however, even at that point the music had actually been out for some time on the streets of the Bronx where it was born.

          • kanilammit

            “Don’t” is a discriminatory word, or as the left likes to confuse the two, it is a racist word. The only reason the first ‘O’ is included is because that ‘O’ is a sell out to its fellow vowels. In fact all contractions are now considered bigoted because they discriminate against vowels by only including some and not including them all.

            See. Someone out there can always find something wrong with something. The lesson learned from the left is to just not talk, but then if one doesn’t talk, they will consider that a sign of racism since the silent person apparently thinks they are to good to speak to someone else. I give up, you can’t win with these people.

          • Dave the Retired Marine MSgt

            Nope, white is the result of all colors being mixed together; black is the absence of color. Of course, most of the “White” people I know (myself included) are kind of pink. Most of the “Yellow” ones are whiter than the Whites. And … just about all of the “Blacks” are mostly kind of Brown. That would make ALL of us “People of Color”.

That’s probably what gave me such a “colorful” outlook on life, except, of course when I munched on those brown ones. Then the outlook became much more realistic. Or perhaps I should say “output”, rather than “outlook”. Either way, you probably get my drift.

          • mike_in_kosovo

            You’re confusing light with color. In color (pigment), white is absence, black is mixture of all.

          • Dave the Retired Marine MSgt

            You’ve got it backwards my friend.

          • mike_in_kosovo

            Nope.

            http://cs.nyu.edu/courses/fall02/V22.0380-001/color_theory.htm

            “Additive color synthesis is the creation of color by mixing colors of light.”

            “When all of the colors of the spectrum are combined, they add up to white light.”

            “Subtractive color synthesis is the creation of color by mixing colors of pigment, such as paint or ink in your computer’s printer.”

            “When all of the colors are combined, they create black pigment.”

            Feel free to test it yourself with red, blue and green crayons, however – you’ll find the the result is black, not white.

          • Dave the Retired Marine MSgt

            I wasn’t referring to pigment in the first part of my comment. In your statement “”When all of the colors of the spectrum are combined, they add up to white light.” confirms what I meant.

          • mike_in_kosovo

            Except that the fact that people don’t emit light, you may have had a point. Unfortunately for your argument, people *don’t* emit light, so you’re still incorrect.

          • Dave the Retired Marine MSgt

            The “light” that we see in terms of skin coloration is reflected. The absence of reflection of all colors results in the object, or person, appearing to be “black”. The more the reflection, the closer to “white”. So then, I’m still correct. Shine a light through a prism; the result is bands of color, none of which is black.

          • mike_in_kosovo

            The “light” that we see in terms of skin coloration is reflected

            Color reflected from *pigment* in the skin. You’re *still* wrong.

            Again – feel free to get some crayons and prove yourself wrong.

          • D Scott Horton

            Focusing on the color of a persons skin instead of the content of their character is what is wrong. There are black people I trust and white people not worth the powder to blow them to hell, there is a certain Asian guy whose throat I will cut if I ever see him.

      • Brian Saxophone Ransom

        It’s okay to use ugly words as long as it sounds like self-deprecating humor. You know, like an old man says bad things about being old, Blacks say bad things about being black. I don’t know how whites get away with using such terms though.

        Actually, Congoid is the correct term if you want to compare to Caucasian, Indochinese etc… So, J Thomas is a Congoid, I’m a Caucasian and Emperor Hirohito is Northern Mongoloid blah blah and other unscientific, irrelevant categories. Justice Thomas is a principled man who calls it down the line, as it is and the corrupt don’t like that.

      After listening to Clarence Thomas in an interview, it makes sense that he’s against affirmative action. His belief was that affirmative action tainted his accomplishments in the eyes of employers. In his case, affirmative action allowed him entrance into college, but what good is a tainted degree that doesn’t bring about employment?

      • indianahomez

        It is constitutional or it isn’t (the referendum). CT’s personal story is irrelevant. That is the fact the haters are ignoring.

        • Johnny Right

          I agree. My previous comment was for those who assumed he made his decision based on personal experience instead of legal precedent. A lot of the haters were bashing him for “benefiting” from affirmative action and “voting against it,” without even knowing the crux of this case.

    • john haggle

      I am an old white guy, but neither a conservative or a liberal, neither a Democrat or a Republican. Logic and reason should prevail.
      Affirmative Action might have worked … IF… the educational system had upgraded to provide job and life skills in a NON- BORING WAY instead of spending so many years learning long division by hand (use a calculator like in real world), instead of sentence diagramming (practice writing skills on job applications, real job type communications, etc.), and vastly reducing the expenditures on sports … and redirecting sports into ALL STUDENTS daily exercise routines that they can do without equipment or special training (Make it a life habit). There are so MANY things wrong with education (Oh yes, reduce the size of administration and government paperwork and mandates) that I could go on forever! So of course Affirmative Action is non-productive and generally non-beneficial. By the way. 13 years of 7+ hours per day, 5 days a week, 9 months a year, at what ?? $6,000+ per year per student?? …. and what do students have in the way to show for it??? They are told to go to college or a vocational school “So they can get a job!”

Just as the ancient Israelites smeared sacrificial lamb’s blood over their doorways in order to escape the Angel of God’s vengeance, these delusional Caucasians smear bright red anti-racist graffiti—or, in extreme cases, the literal blood of “rednecks” and any “right-wing white” who refuses to get with the program—over their doorways in the hope that when the Dark Angels finally come en masse seeking “justice,” they won’t accidentally notice that the people with the bright red anti-racist paint over their doorways also happen to be white.

        I was surprised not to hear more about that. So shockingly offensive.

        This Gallup poll from a year ago cites attitudes about AA in admissions broken down by racial groups:

        http://www.gallup.com/poll/163655/reject-considering-race-college-admissions.aspx

        75% of whites, 44% of blacks, 59% of Hispanics thought admission should be based solely on merit – and while Asian numbers aren’t broken down, I have a hard time believing they’d be below 44% of blacks. Broken down another way 53% of Democrats feel admissions should be merit-only, compared to 69% of Independents and 87% of Republicans.

        So 44% of blacks and 59% of Hispanics are what – racist against themselves in her view? I think it’s much more likely that these folks are the ones who are really committed to equality for everyone of any race. But if she allowed that, she’d probably have to allow that white people also have altruistic motives here, and that apparently is a bridge too far.

        Sad, really. Sotomayor, Holder, BAMN and their ilk are today’s Dixiecrats, angrily lamenting their inability to stop a world marching onward towards equality despite their best efforts.

    I interpret this decision as a win for progressivism in that we have come to a point in our society where affirmative action laws are no longer needed, and minorities have truly become equals.

    But some just want to keep feeling as though they’re being oppressed as harshly as previous generations were. Stay rooted in the past mindset, progressives. The rest of us will keep looking forward.

    • Maryland_Malcontent

      Why did we ever need to mandate special treatment based upon race? People without bona fide qualifications for a position should never have been allowed (or, more aptly, forced) to get it.

      • CHHR

        No where in the doctrine of affirmative action is one group to be given special consideration and quotas are strictly prohibited. True affirmative action seeks only to ensure opportunity of assimilation of the population into the pool of candidates to be considered in the decision making process. In other words, an entity is required to measure their outreach programs to ensure they’ve effectively provided all groups knowledge of and an opportunity to apply for available opportunities they may be qualified for.

        When policy is conflated to give one an advantage over another strictly based on their protected status, then you have discrimination and many colleges have been doing just that, causing reverse discrimination. Unfortunately, too many in a position to make policy intentionally choose to establish practices that inherently discriminate calling it “just.”

        • Maryland_Malcontent

          Ah, so quotas exist but “don’t exist”, similar to the police ticket quotas that also exist but don’t exist.

        • Republicanvet

          It was typically liberal. Give them an inch (affirmative action) and they took a mile (establish quotas).

    • ledzepp8

      I wonder why they feel that way? They have an entire party telling them that they’re being oppressed daily, that the other half of the country hates them because they have a darker complexion, that they can’t make it anywhere on their own without big brother helping them out (aka keeping them down), etc.

      I honestly don’t get it. You would think that after 60 years of no real advancements in this war on poverty that these victims would wake up and realize that the party they vote for is the party that is keeping them poor.

    The blacks that are denouncing (uses term loosely) him for being a single vote among the majority, are proving themselves, through their own words, to be lazy, entitled, good for nothings whose mindnumblingly simple understanding of affirmative action is that they are specifically entitled to free stuff because they are black. Rather than embracing the seeming progress that is made by this decision, they take offense to it. This is why the blacks will never advance as long as they remain democrats. They are simply unable to understand the complete hypocrisy of their position.

    • Hey, That’s Pretty Good

      The worst part is that they follow the party who created the Jim Crow Laws and who fought AGAINST the Civil Rights Act. They stand behind Democrats but ignore the fact that if Dems had their way blacks wouldn’t be allowed to vote and would still be viewed as second class citizens.

    They ignore the fact that Thomas came from an era when he probably benefited from affirmative action and he made it work for himself. Progress has led us to the point where its no longer needed, its just wanted.

  • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Well, at least the usual Leftie version of professional buck dancers didn’t resort to saying Thomas is a shuckin’-&-jivin’-shufflin’-ass-fool-mo-fo. That would mean they were SERIOUSLY against him.

  • ledzepp8

    So for sake of argument, if Clarence Thomas was appointed to SCOTUS based solely on his race and not on merit, how does pointing that out illustrate a need for more affirmative action? These liberal idiots make my head hurt. That’s basically the argument in those tweets. “Clarence Thomas only got his job because he’s black and now he doesn’t want other blacks to get a job only because they’re black. That’s not fair!”

    There was already one jurist like that — Thurgood Marshall, moronic bigot. He DID get on the Court because of affirmative action. Clarence Thomas is not a stupid nonentity like Marshall.

From that day on I always thought of him and other blacks as just people.

The rest of the group are as screamingly liberal as you can get, and to a person their arguments were that of course you shouldn’t slur an African-American but that Clarence Thomas should not vote against the interests of his own race. Thereby, of course, reducing him to the color of his skin with, I kid you not, a complete lack of how they sounded.

    Clarence Thomas worked his way up the ladder, using the rules that were there. He did not write the rules for affirmative action. Nor did he write the rules for Michigan to eliminate the use of race in making decisions, the citizens of Michigan (like California) voted to bar the use of racism in making decisions by the government.

    For better or worse, to succeed a person has to operate under the rules which exist. Conservative students in college know how this works. A student pointing out the intolerant liberal racist professor is a blithering progressive idiot, is likely to get the student a poor grade at best and possibly flunked out. So the student learns the regurgitate the progressive bile the student is fed, to get the grades and get the degree. The progressive feels he is “educating” while the student moves on to get into the real world.

      And that has been going on in colleges for decades. My daughters deal with it every day…..both have only written one paper based on facts, the rest only on liberal appeasement, due to how they were graded after the first paper written.

    I have to add this to the discussion. I watched a movie, “Red Tails” about the Tuskegee Airmen, black fighter pilots who served in WWII.
    The pilots were finally invited to the Officers Club. One of them said, (and I paraphrase) You white people are funny. You get red when you are angry or embarrassed, green when you are sick or jealous, blue when you are sad, and yellow when you are afraid. And you have the nerve to call us colored!
    I thought it was hilarious. 😀

    Racism is fine with the other side when it benefits them, but that is really not surprising. Seem to remember when Dr. King talked about equality that he would have thought artificially creating equality at the expense of others.

  • Gladius Maximus

    You can’t blame blacks for wanting to keep a good scam going. Half a century of race-based “affirmative” discrimination is a gift they don’t wish to see die. Liberals want to keep them loyal voters through perpetual dependency, so this affirmative action scam has become a huge, self-perpetuating government enterprise. Reduced entitlements will cause greater racial animosity and upheaval – just as the Left planned. Can a civil war be far off from now?

    According to colonial records, the first slave owner in the United States was a black man.

    Prior to 1655 there were no legal slaves in the colonies, only indentured servants. All masters were required to free their servants after their time was up. Seven years was the limit that an indentured servant could be held. Upon their release they were granted 50 acres of land. This included any Negro purchased from slave traders. Negros were also granted 50 acres upon their release.

    Anthony Johnson was a Negro from modern-day Angola. He was brought to the US to work on a tobacco farm in 1619. In 1622 he was almost killed when Powhatan Indians attacked the farm. 52 out of 57 people on the farm perished in the attack. He married a female black servant while working on the farm.

    When Anthony was released he was legally recognized as a “free Negro” and ran a successful farm. In 1651 he held 250 acres and five black indentured servants. In 1654, it was time for Anthony to release John Casor, a black indentured servant. Instead Anthony told Casor he was extending his time. Casor left and became employed by the free white man Robert Parker.

    Anthony Johnson sued Robert Parker in the Northampton Court in 1654. In 1655, the court ruled that Anthony Johnson could hold John Casor indefinitely. The court gave judicial sanction for blacks to own slave of their own race. Thus Casor became the first permanent slave and Johnson the first slave owner.

    Whites still could not legally hold a black servant as an indefinite slave until 1670. In that year, the colonial assembly passed legislation permitting free whites, blacks, and Indians the right to own blacks as slaves.

    By 1699, the number of free blacks prompted fears of a “Negro insurrection.” Virginia Colonial ordered the repatriation of freed blacks back to Africa. Many blacks sold themselves to white masters so they would not have to go to Africa. This was the first effort to gently repatriate free blacks back to Africa. The modern nations of Sierra Leone and Liberia both originated as colonies of repatriated former black slaves.

    However, black slave owners continued to thrive in the United States.

    By 1830 there were 3,775 black families living in the South who owned black slaves. By 1860 there were about 3,000 slaves owned by black households in the city of New Orleans alone.

    • DorothyGrissom

      You are partially correct. What you stated is from a previous SCOTUS ruling: That the States should be allowed to decide on affirmation action. Michigan voters already voted (3 yrs ago) to end affirmation action due to the fact that it is discriminatory. Today the Supreme Court upheld Michigan’s right to make that choice. Now people in Michigan cannot be discriminated against based on their race or gender.

      • GaylePutt

    I am certain that each of these mean spirited posts’ are based on fact (sarcasm) You do know that Mrs. Thomas is white and stood by her husband throughout the appointment hearings which were tainted by Anita Hill’s accusations. Accusations which were just that, there was no substance to Ms. Hill’s charges.
    No matter what the race, there are very few who could withstand the pressure brought to bear on this Judge and continue to act in a noble manner as has Clarence Thomas. Some of the folks who post such vile, repulsive remarks could a lesson in communication skills. Is that the kind of person we want representing the mindset of America?

  • DorothyGrissom

    The lawsuit that led to the SCOTUS ruling today was initially brought by a student who was refused admission to Michigan University because she was a white female. [Discrimination indeed goes both ways.] Michigan voters then voted to abolish affirmative action on the basis it is discriminatory. SCOTUS ruled today to uphold Michigan’s right to abolish affirmative action. Now people cannot be discriminated against based on their race or gender. Seems like the Liberals would want to end discrimination. No?

    some may have read this… but I will post it again…

    If the Democrats would have done in the early 1800s what they
    have been doing the last 60 years there would have been no Civil War… It
    saddens me and breaks my heart to see the Black Americans who suffered so much
    to become truly free, self sufficient with Loving Families and a Faith in God
    that carried them through hell on earth…all caused by Democrats wanting to
    keep Blacks in their place..Martin Luther King was leading the black people out
    of Egypt to Freedom and Liberty, but something happened along the way… just
    when you (Black Americans) were walking out of Egypt… The Pharaoh (Democrats)
    opened his storehouse of stolen treasures (Tax payers money)…(trinkets and
    shinny things) saying Come back I will give you Castles (High Rise Low Rent
    Housing Unites) Beautiful Towns (Ghettos and Slums) and Fine Wine (Drugs,
    Alcohol, Cheap Beer, Abortion to keep your population under control) and
    Abundant Wealth (Food Stamps and Unemployment, Welfare Checks just enough to
    pacify you and keep you quiet). And Pharaoh (Democrats) said we will give you
    leaders after you own kind (Poverty Pimps living off of your suffering,
    promising…Promising and Promising better days and they never seem to come…
    it seems they get richer and richer while nothing changes for you…so called
    leaders who get richer and richer while you stay in your poverty are no
    leaders…they are TYRANTS…THEY SAY VOTE FOR ME and I will cause the heavens to
    open and rain treasures down upon you… But all that rains down on you is
    death, gun fire, more poverty, young lives crushed under despair…You see the
    Democrats weaved a master plan to put you back on the plantation…not growing their cotton or tobacco…they put you back
    on the plantation to grow your vote…to keep Pharaoh and the Leaders “THEY”
    set over you in power…power is control…control is Slavery…if only you
    would have said to Pharaoh 60 years ago…WE WILL NOT BOW DOWN TO YOU PHARAOH…WE
    HAVE FOUGHT A LONG HARD BATTEL FOR FREEDOM…WE ARE FREE AT LAST…but alas the
    lure of things, bobbles and security were too much to resist…after all…
    they call you out every 2 years to vote to keep them in power and then they
    send you back to your places…when you depend on others for your security you
    are in effect in a prison…totally dependent on Government and Democrats to
    take care of you…is slavery…

    One more Question…..what is the difference between the
    Democrats owned Plantations of the South before the Civil War and the Democrat
    owned Ghettos, Slums. High Rise Low Rent Housing Projects of today???

    • cyndo123

      How could it bite us? The way I understand this(and please correct me if I am wrong) The state voters are allowed to say whether they want Affirmative action to be prevalent in there state. They said no. There are a few other states that have the same law. Do you think its okay if someone is turned down because the “quota” has been met?

    What a courageous man.. that Clarence Thomas. To make a ruling that has been racist since it’s inception… and unfairly punishes the deserving person that beat fair and square for the seat.

    Down with affirmative action and up with minorities working amongst themselves… like the white people did… to get their kids educated…
    And if they can’t get them good enough to compete in a white school…
    then they should get off their azzes and put their own schools together to get their kids ahead.

    and now for something completely different: enjoy….

    the beginning was he Plan.

    And then came the assumptions.

    And the Assumptions were without form.

    And darkness was upon
    the face of the Workers.

    And they spoke among
    themselves, saying, “It is a crock of shit, and it stinketh.”

    And the workers went
    unto their Supervisors and said, “It is a pail of dung, and none may abide
    the odour thereof.”

    And the Supervisors
    went unto their Managers, saying, “It is a container of excrement, and it
    is very strong, such that none may abide by it.”

    And the Managers went
    unto their Directors, saying, “It is a vessel of fertiliser, and none may
    abide its strength.”

    And the Directors
    spoke amongst themselves, saying one to another, “It contains that which
    aids plant growth, and it is very strong.”

    And the Directors
    then went onto the Vice Presidents, saying unto them, “It promotes growth
    and is very powerful.”

    And the Vice
    Presidents went unto the President, saying unto him, “This new plan will
    actively promote the growth and vigour of the company; with powerful
    effects.”

    And the President
    looked upon the Plan, and saw that it was good.

    And the Plan became
    Policy.

    This is How Shit
    Happens.

    Wow, just wow! I have a child who has a 4.2 GPA from a very good high school. He has applied for every scholarship that he possibly can. Because he is not from a poor (but certainly not a rich) family, he has received no additional college monies. However, if his skin were anything other than white or if he were here illegally, he would probably get his whole education paid for. So much for sacrifice and hard work! Seems to me that the system has it backwards!

    • Arrimine

      I love hearing stories about how someone’s brilliant child would get all of these wonderful benefits if only they were a different skin color. There’s never any evidence to support it but why should that matter?

      If you’re worried about your kid not getting their fair share, make sure they are the best. Not “pretty good”… not “one of the best”… the best. When you’re the best, arguing over all of this other silliness melts away.

      • Tom Winegar

        So what, all the stories of reverse discrimination are bogus? It doesn’t matter if you have the highest marks if a quota on human meat is in place. The old “I don’t see any proof of it” just doesn’t fly anymore because the proof is there if you look for it. Lucy made a fair point and you don’t care to consider it might be true. You must be young because it has been going on since Affirmative Action became law and quotas became a reality.

        • Arrimine

          Yeah, they’re pretty much bogus and I’m not that young (sadly). I’ve worked in college admissions and I’ve heard parents wail about all manner of conspiracy against their kid. That’s just not the way it works.

          There is plenty of room for anyone who truly applies themselves in high school. But kids don’t because their parents don’t emphasize it. *shrug* The prize was there if they wanted to work for it but instead they took their chances doing just enough to be considered at the college of their choice.

          • Tom Winegar

            I’ll give you this, parents can be a real pain but the quota system is real and has led to preferential treatment in numerous cases, not just at school but in the work place. Usually where there is smoke there is at least a reasonable amount of fire. I will at least consider what you said and look into it.

      • MominMich

        Look at any college catalog that lists scholarships for each school – many are only for people of color.

      • Lucy Sue

        So let me get this straight, you’re saying that a child who is black or Hispanic with a, let’s say 3.2 GPA should get a scholarship over the white 4.2 GPA simply based on skin color? If that’s what you think, than you are part of the problem. And for the record, he is the best you smug a#$wipe!

        • Arrimine

          I’m saying that I don’t believe this is happening at all. If your kid earned a 4.2 GPA, worked hard and aced their SAT’s, got good letters of recommendation and extra-curriculars, then they’ll get in. If they didn’t then they rolled the dice with their future. *shrug*… sometimes that doesn’t work out the way we’d like.

          • neoface

            Yes, that has happen in public universities, since they reserved 4% of placements for minorities students, some of them may even have a 2.5 GPA being accepted before someone with higher GPA. You must live under a rock, there has been law suits for that reason.

          • Arrimine

            If 4% of places are held for someone else then you have 96% of the spots available to you. If you are the best, you will get one of those spots. If you don’t care enough to make yourself the best, then you’re volunteering to roll the dice.

          • neoface

            You really want these people in the medical school??? Besides the 96% has to compete globally while the 4% doesn’t.

          • Arrimine

            We’re talking about undergrad… medical and law schools have mandatory exams at the end that you won’t pass if you aren’t qualified.

            As to the rest… *shrug*… what I don’t understand is how hard people will fight to get into college with mediocre credentials… if they fought that hard to excel in high school it would’ve been a complete non-issue.

            Put another way: if 4% of spots are closed to you and you didn’t qualify for the last spot of the other 96% you would’ve been in the bottom 5% of that university. You were already a very marginal applicant and should probably be looking at a more appropriate school.

          • neoface

            WOW, you sound like another Einstein. LOL!!!

          • Lucy Sue

            I didn’t say he didn’t get in, you need to reread my original post. He got in to every school he applied to, and he did have a GPA of 4.2, great ACT score, many extra-curricular activities with awesome letters of recommendations. One thing I do know is this-if you asked the person facing brain surgery if he would like the 4.2 GPA surgeon or rather the 3.0 athlete/person of color/illegal, etc. Hands down it’s always going to be the 4.2 GPA. We reward people for the wrong reasons!

          • Arrimine

            That’s great for your kid. He put himself in a position where Affirmative Action was irrelevant to him. My advice: don’t worry about the other guy… he’ll have enough of his own challenges to worry about.

        • Tom Winegar

          Now what’s this about….”a#$wipe”, geez, are you an expert at ruining your own credibility. Just state your experience and defend it based on information. I believe these quotas are real and if you have experienced this you should be angry.

            I usually don’t go there Tom. Sorry, it’s a mom thing. I felt as though he was implying that my son was “pretty good” but not the best.

  • Tom

    Reading these rants excoriating Justice Thomas, and then looking at the screen pics (the ones that clearly aren’t avatars) brings to mind something my dad used to say: “Tom, you’ll find racists everywhere, and never forget we are doing good work, but there are virulent racists of every color.”

    My dad was a (white) civil rights activist in Detroit in the mid-60s.

  • Tom Winegar

    What was it that Lyndon Johnson said after he signed Affirmative Action into law …….. ……..‘I’ll Have Those N*****s Voting Democratic For The Next 200 Years’?

  • Jarrad Williams

    Amazing how so-called Liberals are always insisting people progress and catch up with the 21st century yet are afraid to test the waters to see if this country has really progressed at all. Calling Justice Thomas every name in the book because he believes success is earned and should not be portioned out according to demographics is a clear sign that those screaming to continue affirmative action have no real confidence in individual abilities and no faith in the public’s ability to assess ability without the race crutch.

  • Tom Winegar

    Another quote from the Grand Dragon of the Democratic Party:

    “These Negroes, they’re getting pretty uppity these days and that’s a problem for us since they’ve got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness. Now we’ve got to do something about this, we’ve got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference.” – LBJ

    This is proof that the Dems instigated the biggest scam in American history!

  • alvinjh

    The left cannot conceive of a time when strong independent black people will judge for themselves what is the best path ..until then they must hold in contempt any who defy their patronizing condescension.. to do otherwise is to deny all they truly believe, their most sacred beliefs.. The left are as handicapped by these beliefs as they think blacks are by their race. When they speak like this they condemn themselves, not Justice Thomas. People know ‘racism’ when they see it.

  • Atilla_the_Hyundai

    The people who crow about racism the most notably ignore the racism inherent with race-based Affirmative Action. Make it class-based and this conservative will fully support it.

  • Arrimine

    If you want to get into the college of your choice, work like a maniac in high school… like it is the most important thing in your life at that point. Then it won’t matter if there is Affirmative Action or not.

  • ChazSmith

    Wow… unbelievable that so many tolerant liberals would just assume that Judge Thomas could only be in his position because of Affirmative Action. As if he, and by extension – all African Americans, can only compete and succeed if the standards are lowered for them.

  • Mark

    Oh, there’s those tolerant leftists once again. Hilarious how many don’t even understand the words of the great Dr. King when we said he hoped for a society one day that judges everyone by the content of their character rather than the color of their skin. Justice Thomas took a step in fulfilling that vision today & those leftist bigots can’t stand it.

    • neoface

      It seem dems use the skin of their color as victims for their cause(or their poster child). If we speak of character then people like Rangel and Waters should be fired long time ago.

    I was the first one in my family to go to college. A neighbor who had gone to college gave my parents great and simple advice when I was young. “If you want Arrimine to go to college, get rid of the TV.” My parents were willing to do it but most aren’t.

  • K Welch

    Maybe Thomas believes minorities are actually smart enough to get into school based on intelligence and not skin color. Everyone complaining is just afraid they will have to work as hard as the white folk to get in, no favors for any race is true equality!

    Such horribly hate filled people.
    May they face the same judgement from their own as they have thrown upon Justice Thomas.

  • WhoDat

    It’s sad imagining the young bright minds who will undoubtedly be denied their day because of this ruling.

    • Jake Bradford

      Just not bright enough to get in on their own merit, huh?

      • WhoDat

        Two identical histories. One White student. One minority student. Who do you think they’ll pick?

        • Arrimine

          If their histories are of outstanding academic achievement, hard work, dedication and seriousness about their intellectual development, they will pick both.

          Or are you asking, “Two identical mediocre student histories vying for the last spot at a college… who do you think they’ll pick?” And the answer, of course, is “Who cares?”

          • WhoDat

            And if there’s only one spot available with no exceptions?

          • Arrimine

            If there’s only one spot available it will be for the very LAST spot… so again, “Who cares?”. They aren’t going to throw away the top applicants. You’re fighting over being allowed to be the worst student at that school. Use that same energy to improve yourself and you won’t be the LAST guy admitted.

          • Jake Bradford

            Then have them compete for it on a test that is judged anonymously. Also, it’s not like there aren’t a plethora of colleges desperate to get students.

        • gjsmith_62

          Remove the question of race. Are you a racist?

        • Jeff Webb

          Which student do you think they should pick?

        • QueenB

          After yesterdays ruling, the color of their skin doesn’t matter.

          • WhoDat

            Please keep telling yourself that.

          • QueenB

            And you keep telling yourself minorities are too stupid to succeed in their own and need special treatment to go anywhere in life.

    • Stuck_in_Ca

      Why?

    • QueenB

      You’re so right. Let’s get rid of charter schools and vouchers so poor black and Latino kids can’t get a decent education at the elementary through high school levels, but give them spots in colleges that may have gone to others more qualified, but who were denied because of the color of their skin. Yep, nothing wrong with that.

      • WhoDat

        Vouchers are fine if they’re a temporary fix.

    • gjsmith_62

      Yeah, being treated equally is rotten to the core.

    • Chevypowered

      So basically we are totally incapable of finding employment, being successful and enjoying a full life like everyone else “in the year of our lord 2014” due to affirmative action being shown the door?

      So Obama got to be president not because of any experience (sorry could not say that without laughing my ass off), but for the mere fact that he was half black. Which based on his actions since being elected actually make some sense.

      So every black doctor, engineer, celebrity, musician, etc…. got to where they are at based solely on a color quota?

      So what you are saying “whodat” is that we cannot make it based on our intelligence but only if we meet a certain number criteria?

      If you dig deep past the good intentions of a liberal, you find a condescending bigot.

      • QueenB

        Yes, that’s exactly what he’s saying though he will ever admit it. He’s just looking out for you, doncha know.

      • WhoDat

        You can make it on your intelligence if you’re even given a chance to show it.

        Minority enrollment in MI has eroded since this ban was put into place. A coincidence?

        Our nation is getting more diverse. If you honestly believe that minority students aren’t getting screwed, you’re blind.

        • Chevypowered

          …and if you think there is racism under every rock your ignorant.

  • Arrimine

    “Because of Affirmative Action, my child missed out on the opportunity to be the worst student accepted to the college of their choice.”

    This is a problem that parents (regardless of race) who truly emphasize education never have to deal with.

  • Midas68

    It’s funny,Sad and ironic that people support the only legal institutionalized racism as some sort of badge of honor to prove they are not racist.

    I remember my boss telling me that we needed more people and I could interview people to work for my team, as long as they passed a drug test and they wasn’t white, I could hire them.

    This wasn’t my first interaction with Race Based Hiring(and bigotry)
    When I was 18 I couldn’t get a damn job at Taco Bell because I wasn’t black enough. But this was the first time I seen that people would actually say “NO White People are Allowed”

    It’s also very sad and pathetic that those who are against racism will actually argue for this and pretend this is Justice.

    Not understanding the whole treating people on the Content of Their Character concept in the least.

  • Mike

    When white folks act like Clarence Thomas they are lauded for putting a sense of justice over partiality and self-interest. Thomas certainly deserves the same encomiums. He believes in one standard for all Americans. Was that not what the civil rights struggle was all about? Or was it really about finding out how stupid white folks were giving up advantages they sometimes held. Call me a sap, but I believed MLK and others like him. And Thomas has upheld that sense of decency and dedication to equality.

  • Stuck_in_Ca

    Captain America and Superman have nothing on Clarence Thomas when it comes to bravery.

    • Arrimine

      Wait… this is what passes for bravery these days? The guy is a justice and he applied the law to the facts of this case. That’s it. It’s not a portrait in courage, it’s his job.

      • TundraThunder

        According to the left, JusticeThomas is not supposed to go by law, only color. But the left doesn’t really care about the blacks and other minorities, only votes.

        • Arrimine

          Even if that ridiculous assertion were true, how is this a brave act by Justice Thomas?

          • QueenB

            Oh really? You explain their comments then.

          • Arrimine

            Rather than mind-reading, I’d rather let them explain their comments for themselves. It’s a good habit to get into.

          • QueenB

            I see, so they’re so stupid the first thing they write means nothing other than he’s a traitor to his race because of the decision? Nice.

          • Arrimine

            I’ve been called worse. When you know who you are, that kind of stuff rolls off your back. Justice Thomas knows who he is and he’ll be just fine.

        • Stuck_in_Ca

          Exactly. he knew he would be facing the wrath of “his” people by doing this but he did it anyway, because it was the right thing to do.

          • Arrimine

            lol… “his” people. His peers are the 8 other Justices on the bench. Tonight he probably went out for a dinner none of us could afford and enjoyed his evening with his family and friends.

          • Stuck_in_Ca

            Your point?

          • Arrimine

            That there’s not a whole lot for him to fear. No need for bravery. He’s just a guy doing his job.

          • Stuck_in_Ca

            Read the comments on Twitter and take note of who they’re from.

      • QueenB

        I’m sure he doesn’t pay much attention, but do have the first clue what people who disagree with his decision (the same decision as 5 other justices, by the way) have been saying about him, personally? 5 other justices came to the same decision and they’re going after the black guy.

        • Arrimine

          Oh I agree it’s silly to attack Thomas alone for this. But he can’t lose his job. He won’t lose his friends or family because of this. He won’t lose the respect of anyone who previously respected him. So where’s the bravery?

          • QueenB

            Death threats kinda suck, I’m sure he’ll get a few of those. Let me guess, that doesn’t count. They are calling him racist and vile names. It is absolutely disgusting and anyone that defends any of the comments or the premise of them, is disgusting as well.

          • Arrimine

            Correct… your certainty that he will receive death threats doesn’t count (unless you’re the one making them).

          • Arrimine

            First, I don’t think it’s racist. Second, I’m not trying to defend it… I’m trying to encourage people to lift themselves up so that it is a non-issue in their lives. But everyone these days seems to want to be mediocre and still have the world laid at their feet. Be great and Affirmative Action is a non-issue.

      • Tom Winegar

        Read all the nonsense he has had to endure since Anita Hill and his confirmation hearings. All the Democrats on that panel hated him because he had left their plantation and most Blacks call him all sorts of vile crap because he is fair.

        • ibelieveinfreedom2

          Simple, she’s a racist. Let’s face it, she was chosen because she was a latina and would help with the socialist agenda. She can be quoted as saying:
          “the court of appeals is where policy is made”
          and
          “I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn’t lived that life.”

          So it is obvious she views her roll as a justice on the Supreme Court is to push an agenda, not make decisions based on Constitutionality.

    • ibelieveinfreedom2

      Your black privilege/race-card has been called in and you are afraid to compete on an equal playing field. The irony is you saying there’s ‘white privilege’ when you know the race-card is a privilege no white person can pull. You think it’s not racist if a white kid earned a spot because he worked hard and has the grades but is not accepted because a kid who has lower grades and happens to have black skin is required to fill a quota? That’s racist on so many levels. First you assume the black kid is too stupid to earn that spot which is the typical assumption of socialist democrats, then another kid is rejected because of his skin color and that’s the socialist democrat’s “fairness”. Who’s the racist?????

      • heavensent handmaidenofthe Lor

        As OJ Simpson. There is a comment here, someone bemoaning the fact that they cant say n-word while blacks use it themselves all the time, which prompted my comment. I find it REALLY hard to believe thst youve never heard that argument before, almost as hard to believeas you not wstching the news, which apparent you CANT have, nor read newspapers- maybe your living offthe land outside of civilaztion because 3 young black men actualky made the news recently, the rest will remain anonymous, but i can think of 5 highly publicized cases of Black men beingshot and killed and the mruders acquitted. It took 50 years to prosecute that guy that killed 3 civil rights workers and need we go back in histiry any further, reallt? And yes we have a poibt of agreement

        • heavensent handmaidenofthe Lor

          Racists do nott care if blacks kill blaks just makes thier job that much easier. They donbt care about about any one who DOES care about black kiling blacks either, cuz theyd like to kill them too! I do not know any blck ppl unconcerned with black on black crime, but we have a nation full of others that are pathetically so. I can think of one highly visible public black person thst doesnt seem to care and one group of majority black ppl.

Because you’re not capable of doing it on your own… (Pat on the head) … Now be a good little, dependent and repeat the mantra…. Or be labeled a racist sexist…

    The irony here is bittersweet. The left is in a froth because the Supreme Court upheld the rights of the people over the demands of the politically correct. You just don’t do that, it is a sin against the liberal orthodoxy and blasphemy of the highest order. What is most outrageous however, is the left turning its ire on a “man of color” as a way of protesting perceived bias against “those of color.” A liberal mind is wasted and that’s not terrible, it’s just a fact.

        Of course if everyone worked for no one would need affirmative action in the first place. But really, keep dividing people by race and whatever other little categories you can come up with.

      I wholeheartedly agree with you. Thomas Sowell is one highly intelligent person who’s opinions I respect. I love his columns. I did not know the two were friends, I now have an even greater respect for Justice Thomas who obviously picks his friends well.

  • Squirrel!

    Justice Thomas did what was right & constitutional.

    Let’s talk about Elena Kagan (hate to give it the respect of the title of Justice). In her role as Solicitor General, Elena Kagan worked on the Obamacare law while it was being drafted but did not recuse herself from hearing the case & rendering a decision about its constitutionality. However, she recused herself from hearing this case because she worked on something in regard to affirmative action while in the role of Solicitor General. Isn’t it the same thing?

As long as they can divide the country and use ‘minorities’ to reach their goal of socialist utopia and the tools who vote for them remain ignorant of their agenda, there will always be racial tensions. To the left, skin color defines a person, and as long as they are willing to remain on the plantation of the democrat party as their slaves, everything is okay. As soon as they step off that plantation, like Clarence Thomas and think for themselves, they become the devil’s spawn.
      Too bad the liberal tools can’t see the forest for the trees, the irony is overwhelming.

  • killer62

    These people are so wrong. The worst negro in history was the one who first sold his own people into slavery. Yes, it was a negro who sold the first modern-day slaves. And Clarence Thomas did not get where he is by affirmative action; he got there by his rational intelligence.

  • religionandhistory

    God Bless the Honorable Clarence Thomas – He upholds exactly what Dr. Martin Luther King preached = colorblindness and equality of all U.S. citizens ! Not the twisted logic of Progressive liberals hating and then dividing all by race and foolish extreme sensitivity to their holy grail of ethnicity and skin tone variations ! Honorable men of all heritages have equal love like God has and Supreme Court Justice Thomas has , and millions of Americans as well ! On the right at least , equal respect , liberty and justice for all = red or yellow black or white !

  • The_Kat ✓vilified

    Libprogs, their campaign to divide is conquer is alive and well. Never mind that Affirmative Action in and of itself is racist because it is built on the premise that minorities are unable to achieve anything on their own without the help of big daddy government. Libprogs have done a great job of convincing people they are victims despite their being a black president and a black man Supreme Court Justice. Apparently libprogs don’t see the irony.

  • John W. Kerr

    Its so enjoyable to “peruse” the mental deficientcies of the regressive marxist of the leftist! They invoke MLK and Thurgood Marshall ignorantly ignoring the real impetus and content of their works and contributions to Ameircan racial equality and at the same time denegrate that legacy of accomplishments as being “unfulfilled” and a wasted needing continual artificial induced reinforcements! That is exactly how they treat them and the legislature they inspired! The work is done, finished, and legislative, culturally, and to a great extent socially entrenched. So what’s wrong? Our “mentally morally regressive” friends would rather perpetrate a perpetual state of victimology, imagined abuses, and inflamed sensitivities to reinforce their desires for continual hatred, mistrust, and psychological punishment of supposed and imagined offenders whom only THEY can define! The sick perversions of the liberal leftist race baiting extortive hearts will NEVER allow acrimoney DIE if they have anything to do with it! They exhibit disgusting excuse for human souls!

  • ndmike12

    Is it just me, or is there no hypocrisy or inconsistency whatsoever in both favoring affirmative action as a matter of policy and conceding that the Constitution does not require it?

    • Ms. Abigail van Beagle

      I suppose you can favor a policy that is not strictly called for in the constitution. Happens all the time. The thing is, why would we want to propagate any policy that rewards or punishes people based purely on their skin color? As has been demonstrated by the attitude toward Clarence Thomas, people of color can never be certain of whether they really earned something or if it was given to them based on their color.

      • ndmike12

        My point is that the criticisms of Justice Thomas fail even on their own terms.

  • ColoMom

    So as I understand it Clarence Thomas made his decision according to the merits of the case. Not by the color of his skin….. Now isn’t that what MLK preached???? Thank you Judge Thomas

    • Cantbelieveyouthinkthis

      But that isn’t what Jackson and Sharpton preach and THOSE are the idiots the people hear now. THAT is the biggest problem.

    They think Clarence Thomas is unqualified for the Supreme Court and used affirmative action to get there.

    I think Thomas is ahead of the curve. Affirmative action may have been needed at one time in our history, but it has to end at some point. The pendulum swings past zero and it will be necessary to apply it in the opposite direction. You will never stop inequity with quotas and playing with numbers. It stops when the best person is selected regardless of race creed or disability.

    It is supose to be ok for Blacks to call themselves and each other whatever they want. Anyone that is not black, may not call them anything other than what they say.

  • lugnut

    Let affirmative action go. Most who benefits from it are none blacks who didn’t fight for it anyway. Too many people have gotten the false impression that more blacks then anyone benefit. Nope, white women and Asians do. I don’t feel like fighting for it again, considering the people who benefited from it the most, never stood up with us for it and sometimes against us.

  • SilentCalFan

    Affirmative action is a fraud and a disservice to blacks. It sets them up for failure when it puts them into an environment where they cannot compete with better qualified students. I saw it happen at my law school when all of the black students in one class quit before they had completed one semester.

    • lugnut

      All huh?? They all must have been intellectually inferior and were placed in classes way above their mental capabilities huh? WOW. Of course you were the smart one that finished, right?. “Disservice to blacks”, because the poor things were in way over their heads? I went to an ivy league university and somehow i missed the disservice to all of those poor incapable blacks there. The only problems i saw, were in other colleges where their high schools had failed them. But most of them caught on and succeeded.

      • SilentCalFan

        All of the black students in my university class graduated on time, as did the one black student in my law school class. My physics lab partner, a black, is now a famous orthopedic surgeon. None of them were admitted under affirmative action; that concept did not even exist during my university years in the 1950’s. But in the late 60’s admission standards for blacks were lowered, and it was a disaster for many of those students. Why did the black law students quit? I don’t know. I do not assume they were stupid. I suspect their education did not prepare them for the challenges of that curriculum.

  • Janet Wright

    Have you noticed how most blacks really turn on other blacks who don’t support their cause, no matter if justified or not? According to what I see here, they are not supposed to have their own opinions, only agree. The name calling is really terrible to anyone who is a conservative and black. Hate speech and name calling such as Uncle Tom seems to be the norm then. It must be very hard to be black and not go along with others of their race, no matter how stupid the action or how unjustified the stance is. Independent thinking for blacks is very rare indeed, and I appreciate those who stand up for what’s right when they know they are going to be attacked for doing so.

  • John

    Hypocrisy is seen and comes about in many ways especially to get attention of the I’ll informed of reality that are less likely to have common sense and decency I’ve read people’s opinions about this issue and for this man to be ridiculed for his stance is an issue of pure hypocrisy and say racial slurs to describe the man but let anyone who is not of the same ethnicity use the same terms to describe this gentleman they’d be considered a racist person so to make it an issue of race and say he should vote purely on the basis of his race is illogical and is the reason why this nation is the way it is because if anyone of any other ethnicity would vote purely on the basis of their ethnicity the same individuals on here would be screaming for change and the resignation of justice because they voted for their respective race that is hypocrisy of the liberal ignorance

  • Notorious M.E.G.

    Funny how these nasty libs are unknowingly making the case that affirmative action is given to those who don’t deserve it. They are assuming that Thomas would not have made it to college without A.A. and showing their own racism and bigotry.

    These people obviously don’t even understand the question before the court. It wasn’t “are you for or against affirmative action policies?” Nor was it “are affirmative action policies constitutional?”

    The question before the court was “can a state enact laws forbidding affirmative action policies?”

    It’s entirely possible for a judge (in his capacity as a citizen) to support affirmative action policies and also (in his capacity as a judge) rule that states are permitted to ban them. I’d say that’s the case with Justice Breyer.

      Just to add to your excellent post, one of the salient points the majorty SCOTUS decision held was that the State of Michigan decision was based upon a referendum voted upon by We the People of Michigan and THEY voted in favor to eliminate subjective selections based on race.

      Perhaps by extension, decisions to deny gay marriage and to require Photo ID in order to vote, approved by the people of a State, will similarly be seen as constitutional.

This isn’t the America of the 50s and 60s, persons of all races have been integrated into society. Stop using racism and inequality as an excuse for failure to excel. Its up to you now, NOT society.

The biggest abuser of that Constitution, is the federal government.

They support affirmative action which at one time was necessary but which is now just racist, they support the NAACP which is a purely racist organization, at every opportunity they get out and support race riots and they refuse to enforce voter laws because they get elected based on race and not qualifications.

    Leftists are such stupid racists. Thomas acknowledges his acceptance to law school was likely a result of affirmative action, therefore he must support it or he’s a self-hater? There are such glaring gaps in logic in their arguments over this issue it boggles my mind. For starters, that the policy in itself is not discriminatory because of the hardships minorities face as compared to whites. This is not only a blatant lie and denial of today’s reality, but in order for it to be true, it assumes without question that ALL whites must be privileged and do not face hardships whatsoever. That sentiment is racist and ignorant, just like its advocates.

    With so much liberal love going around for Justice Thomas you’d think that the justice department would come out with a statement to put these haters in their place!

    Affirmative action got you a half black President who has been disastrous. And when he’s gone we , thanks to him and his cronies, wont see another for at least another fifty years.

  • Defiant

    AMAZING how much the blacks’ opinion on “equality” change once they’re actually made EQUAL! LOL! They even turn on their own…

  • Mikevotes

    Black is only a color.
    How one acts, like uneducated blacks, is to the point that blacks can not or will not achieve anything worthwhile in life.
    They are not even good gangsters.
    The blacks are the only racist group left besides progressives.

  • $27901626

    Who cares what these liberal freeloaders say. It is obvious that with all the comments by blacks on twitter that they are the biggest racists of them all. Because Thomas is a black man and does not sell his soul to the democrats they all hate him. At least Thomas can think for himself and does not really care what the libs have to say. Get off your obamaphones ppl and get back to work. Obama needs your tax money.

  • useyourhead2

    The election and reelection of our Campaigner/Vacationer-in-Chief should serve as the last nail in the “special treatment” afforded blacks in the United States of America.

    A reason that the liberal left does not want to see fairness applied is because Affirmative Action served as a demonstrable tool of the Democrats to keep blacks voting for them under the guise that Democrats were the key to whatever good they derived in America.

    Fact of the matter, the Democrats have kept blacks on the “Government Plantation” to be reliant on the bread crumbs they are given instead of embracing the American dream to be all you want to work to become.

    What better example of the benefits to voting for Democrats than the unemployment rate of blacks that is more than twice the official rate; the 72% out of wedlock births by blacks to cause a life of poverty, squalor, and crime; and civil unrest in Chicago on Easter Weekend with 45 shootings and 9 killed? And all of this is happening under the watchful eye of our “First Black President” who is on his way for yet another “vacation” disguised as an Asian Conference complete with $300 sushi in Japan and costing what an average black in America couldn’t spend in three life times of income.

      All part of LBJ’s plan to keep blacks on the plantation. He was quoted as saying, “If we pass Civil Rights Legislation we can count on the n vote for the next 200 years”

  • mrbarry

    Clarence was just trying to do the White thing

  • Valboski210

    And the vote was 6-2, so his vote really didn’t even matter. These racist blacks act like he swayed the decision one way or the other. Affirmative action is wrong, plain and simple. A man is judged on the content of ones character, not the color of his skin. That is all

  • mrbarry

    We cannot subsidize ignorance and expect intelligence

  • Brock99

    Just more proof how the current POTUS was elected. Uninformed blacks with Obama cell phones tweeting ill informed opinions. Thomas being 1/9 the of the SCOTUS can’t really harm anyone without majority opinion. POTUS has taken the black population back 20+ years economically and 50 years culturally.. And now he’s trying to let loose black drug lords to worsen the situation. What a putz. Who would have thought the worst thing for blacks would be a black president?

    Justice Thomas did the right thing he voted to put a end to a policy that promotes racial discrimination against non black ethnisities. advocates for racial equality should applaud this Its about time.

  • chillie willie

    Affirmative action is discrimination at its best enabling minorities to compete In markets specifically walled off for them. It is long due reversal and Clearance Thomas should be commended for his bold and decisive action to further the minority cause. Their is no reason minorities can’t compete in the real world for real projects where the natural market competition weeds out the week companies. America is a republic with a capitalist economy designed to promote competition to make individuals strong. If I was a minority I would be offended that the government had to wall off portions of what was open markets for me to do business in. We should all thank Clearance Thomas for his faith, respect and confidence in all people.

    • UNExit

      If liberals have white guilt, feel free to give up their job, their salary, etc., to a minority. It’s their money, career and life.

  • wrestlingwithpigs

  • Michael

    I am half Mexican. When I was in high school I scored fairly high on my SATs and ACTs, but definetly not as high as two of my white classmates. One of them received a perfect SAT score and the other was almost perfect on the ACT. They applied to Stanford, but were rejected. I didn’t even apply to Stanford, but they sent me a letter inviting me to campus for a visit. They were going to pay for my plane ticket from Alaska! Of course, it was from the Multi-cultural Studies department so I knew the exact reason why they wanted me to come visit.
    It’s a disservice to minorties to be treated as a token. You should not be discriminated/preferred based on the color of your skin. It’s reverse discrimination and only hurts race relations.

  • jekyllisle

    So liberals are really admitting that Black People need special help in order to compete with White People?

    Wow, we had a group of people back in the 1940’s and 1950’s that said Blacks were an inferior race, it took a very great man, MLK, to show them otherwise and after all that hard work he did, even sacrificing his life, the people who, now, hold him in the highest regard are actually spitting on the very thing he laid his life down for.

    When are the liberals going to accept Blacks as equals?

  • David

    The Left’s decision to provide “fairness” adjustments creates a world worst than the original problem. This cult and their followers abhor the light of reason.

    I believe CT is right and has the guts to stand up for a constitution that is for all Americans. His vision, similar to the American founders, supersedes selected groups of people, friends of politically powerful people or those that get special financial support.

    American opportunity should be color blind and for all to pursue.

  • Hawkdriver1961

    So just because he is black he automatically should be for affirmative action? I thought MLK said man should be judged by his character not the color of his skin. Sounds to me he is following MLK instead of being a racist and that is what affirmative action is, racism. Add to that that liberals are fuming shows me Thomas made the right decision.

  • BornAgain123

    My theory is no longer theory, but, truth. The most hateful, bigoted, mean-spirited people in America are far-left, liberals who cannot fathom a country without government control over all aspects of our lives. Affirmative action IS discrimination, period. How little self-esteem do you need to believe that the only way you can get into college is with an unfair advantage??? The Supreme Court made the right decision to allow states to decide for themselves whether to legalize discrimination in college admissions or prohibit it.

  • Shagnasty1

    Did you read the one idiot’s claim there is a “Black Seat” on the Supreme Court? I remember when Thurgood Marshall died and fools demanded another Black be appointed for the “Black Seat”. I always thought Supreme Court Justices were there to rule on the Constitutionality of an issue, not to represent one group of people.

  • The Voice of Reason

    Affirmative action is over.

    It’s time to look yourself in the mirror and ask, what do I want to be in life?

    Then make this statement, “I am looking at me and responsible for me. I will not sit on my hands waiting for a handout. I will openly embrace that God gave me a mind to think and learn, hands to work and feet to keep me going. I from this point on will not rely on anyone but my hard determination to make my life amazing. It is up to ME!

  • jimmyv65

    I see allot of tolerant liberals…I know that’s an oxymoron. All you have to do is let liberals talk and they show their true colors. I guess none of them are too bright, the SC did not repeal affirmative action, they left it to the states, and why should color be a factor in admissions to a college? should it not be based on Acedemics?

  • Snarkasterous1

    This article, and, particularly, the example “tweets” it presents, reinforces several long-standing truths:

    1) Libbies, who are endlessly self-congratulatory regarding their own open-mindedness and broad acceptance of others’ opinions and positions, are blatant hypocrites, filled with rage and vitriol for those who disagree with them.

    2) Libbies remain HUGELY threatened by conservative blacks. Out of the EIGHT justices who heard this case, SIX ruled that states can properly reject the goobermint-sanctioned race discrimination that is affirmative action. Thus, the libbie-spewed hatred directed at Justice Thomas is sadly misplaced; a strong majority of the SCOTUS justices, cutting across race and political ideologies, ruled the same way.

    3) In Libbie La-La Land, up truly is down. This SCOTUS ruling ENDS government-sanctioned race discrimination (in certain areas of society, including goobermint hiring, goobermint contracting, and state-run university education admissions processes.) Yes, it ENDS race-based discrimination, as intended and endorsed by the voters of the state.

    Perhaps it’s necessary to AGAIN remind libbies of the 10th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution – you know, the Law of the Land – or the “living document thingy” as libbies like to consider it – which states: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”

    And, yet, to libbies, this requirement that individuals have EQUAL OPPORTUNITY in the areas affected, is evidence of racism.

    Yep, Libbie La-La Land is alive and well.

    4) The cessation of goobermint-mandated goodies to libbie-identified “victim classes” inevitably results in shrill hysteria and spewed venom on the part of libbies, who require a large number of self-perceived “victims” of society in order to succeed at the polls.

    Thinking adults (i.e., conservatives) would do well to keep this in mind EVERY TIME a goobermint-provided giveaway, or subsidy, or benefit, or race-based preference of ANY SORT, is proposed. Such things are often described by libbies as “temporary,” or “limited in scope,” or as “not adding one dime to the deficit/debt.”

    These claims are invariably false. Recognize that goobermint largesse, once commenced, is most often a permanent burden on the productive, used by libbies to purchase the votes of the unproductive, indolent, and unsuccessful.

All courtesy of blacks who have never thanked anyone for bringing them to a first world country and sacrificing thousands of white lives in the Civil War, WWI and II so they could become obese and continue to complain…..So I say give them a special SCOTUS.

  • Vinchenz

    Nice. It’s nice to see the real racists aka the democrats coming out of the closet. Everyone knows that affirmative action is meant to diminish black achievement not to encourage it. The dimwit-dems keep saying that Clarence Thomas got his SCOTUS appt. because he was black, not because he was qualified. Spoken like true racists that they always were are and will always be. Affirmative action is to reinforce liberal white superiority and black inferiority. And the blacks are way too stupid to realize this. The white liberal policies have effectively destroyed the black race to the point where only a small minority can escape the destruction of the white liberals.

  • barthomew

    Thomas correctly predicted that the temporary continuance of the civil rights voting norms in some states would result in there being some districts that are safely black and liberal and Democratic and others that are safely white and conservative and Republican, resulting in a loss of the need to run toward the middle and ultimately a loss of the need to compromise and negotiate. Note that Steven now favors a totally objective and as little political process of apportionment; unfortunately, he did not vote with Thomas to help bring that about by getting rid of the special civil rights voting norms in some states.

        I wouldn’t put it that way, but the Black community is worse off than it ever was since Reconstruction, as far as my historical knowledge informs me. They are strung out on handouts, as a culture. Those who try to break free are punished. Perhaps as good an analogy as I can think of is where the African elephants’ bulls were separated from the herd. The consequence was a bunch of young males. They started seeing a lot of dead rhinos in the National Park (I believe in was in Kenya). They couldn’t figure out what it was. The ivory was still there, they were not devoured as prey. Finally they discovered it was these young bulls who had become aggressive. They returned the adult bulls to the herd and the young males were brought into line. I’ll never forget seeing painted on the butt of one of the adult males “We’re going in to kick ass.” That would apply to all males of all ethnicities.

    One wonders why people who favor affirmative action are not called racist because to require affirmative action also requires one to say that blacks are inherently inferior.
    One also wonders how blacks who “did it on their own” can ever escape the taint that affirmative action gives to their accomplishments..

    One also wonders how, without suffering terminal shame and embarrassment, a black whose parents came here in 1990 from Nigeria or some other country, can accept affirmative action doled out on the ostensible basis that American slaves had it bad.

    OH you liberals are so ‘tolerant’ aren’t you? ANY black man that goes “off the reservation” and doesn’t support liberal ideals like AFFIRMATIVE ACTION, is immediately vilified.
    HOW many years do we need A.A.? Last I checked, black people can vote, nor be told they CAN’T SIT at a lunch counter.
    SO, what is the GOAL of A.A. then? TO get MORE minority kids into college who have lower test scores.
    Tell me black liberals, do you want a doctor or lawyer who only got a “C-average”? Or would you want a doctor that got “A”s?
    AND what other country in the WORLD does this A.A. stuff? Time for A.A. is up. People got 50 years of being advanced due to SKIN COLOR, not the CONTENT of their CHARACTER.

            The point is supporting the contention that if you need affirmative action it is only because you are not equally qualified.

            Blacks need affirmative action because all available data shows the average black American IQ is 15 points less and the sub Saharan African IQ is around 30 points less than the average European IQ.

            There can be some dispute about the efforts and methodologies when it comes to more ephemeral things like “intelligence”, “cognitive ability”, “IQ” but when it comes to things like “cranial capacity”, “jaw size”, “birth canal dimension” “testosterone level” these are all indisputably scientifically quantifiable.

            The problem arises when Rushton and researchers like him is when their work demonstrates predicable correlations between the scientifically indisputable and the ephemerals like “IQ”, those invested in the ignorant notion that genetic heritable differences in measurable factors have no discernible relation to related but less precisely measurable factors.

            The idea that humans who are all uniquely different genetic specimens would all be “equal” is difficult to understand much less accept.

  • ShepDog100

    Back when the Honorable Clarence Thomas was a student, AA was intended for those because of their skin color, not because of their grades or intelligence level to be discriminated against. Everyone receiving preference now just because of skin color is a slap in the face to that person. You only get in because you’re black, not because you’re smart. Time to end it now. It’s worn out it’s welcome.

    • http://www.google.com/ P!NG

      Exactly…

  • http://Www.cravenfanatic.com/ Cathy

    Why does everyone assume that because Justice Thomas is Black, he must have received his position through affirmative action? He wasn’t smart enough or accomplished enough on his own merits to be a Supreme Court justice? That mindset is the epitome of racism. Blacks don’t need affirmative action. They just need to stop believing and acting like they’re inferior to everyone else and need extra help to get anywhere.

    • Urbane Neanderthal

      The problem isn’t that blacks believe they are inferior, because most do not, the problem is by every objective measure black Americans, on average, have a 15 point IQ deficit with whites.

  • whatitism

    Clarence Thomas and other black leaders see and understand that if you don’t get an education and better yourself in this day and age it is not about the color of your skin but more to do with the CONTENT OF YOUR CHARACTER . Sooner or later you have to stop looking for a handout and a reason to get one and grow up ,go to work and fend for yourself like most other people.

  • Cut The Crap

    Affirmative action means a nation that is not colorblind per MLK Jrs dream. Judge Thomas is staying true to that vision by making the government more colorblind. In treating races equally we’ll have to judge people by the content of their character or their skill-set. Oh no – not that!? (Only the race-baiter crowd dislikes it…yer Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton followers.) Kudos to Judge Thomas for his courage.

    No body claimed racism at the treatment of Condi Rice or Colin Powell…so we know those same race-baiters are behind all this hating on Thomas because he was appointed by a conservative.

    So, apparently we have made so little progress that affirmative action is necessary, still, for people of color to be able to attend college??? Really?? Seems to me like the comments above are based on knee jerk political ideology more than reality or facts. I don’t think it’s the government or laws keeping people of color down at all, if they are being kept down.

    Thomas will never make a decision that is counter to our Constitution. I’ve heard so many Blacks claim that Affirmative Action is not preferential treatment…it’s just to give them an extra boost in an unfair and racist environment. Any way you cut it, it’s still preferential treatment. Conservative “Constitutionalists” (like Thomas) should never bend to the whims and vagaries of the times.

  • AsleepNoMore

    Affirmative action is an insult to minorities (although we would be foolish not to use it, if it still stands and caucasians become a minority). It demonstrates a lack of confidence in their ability to succeed on the same criteria as everyone else. Affirmative action gives special consideration to particular groups. Whenever you treat one group differently than another, you are harming those not included in
    the protected group. That is why our founding documents stress the importance of individual rights and the protection of those rights. If individual rights are protected, no one is adversely affected and everyone benefits. I have seen negative impacts of affirmative action firsthand.

    At a NJ county college, students knew there were barely enough minorities enrolled to keep federal funding rolling in. Knowing that the school would not fail them and risk losing funding, minorities would walk into exams, put their names on their papers and leave, while everyone else did the work required to pass.

    At a major national telecommunications company, incompetent and non-productive minorities were regularly promoted over productive and competent caucasians, in
    order to meet quotas. Encouraging incompetence and non-productivity serves no one.

  • David Johnson

    It never ceases to amaze me that there are actually people do not see this issue as a HUGE part of why race relations are so bad today. It’s bad enough that Obama constantly preaches the victim mantra to all non-whites (it’s all Mitt Romney’s fault that you find yourself in the situation you are in) but the fact that blacks react so viciously when anyone suggests that they should not be moved to the front of the line for jobs, school placement, and everything else in life based on nothing more than the color of their skin. Good luck with that…..

    For Blacks to now criticize having an equal opportunity makes little sense.

    How many people here realize twitchy, which is supposed to be the conservative alternative, is in fact a censor, just like the lefties. Perhaps the twitchies haven’t figured this out: the best remedy for controversial speech is more free speech, not less.

  • neverfooled

    Oh I get it. You hear MLK’s message for all to be equal, and spout it from the rooftops, right up until you realize you don’t get any special treatment.

    Hate really does make you blind.

  • djh

    It cracks me up that some people see CT as the anti-MLK. Both were conservative Republicans who “…look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” Throughout history, conservative Republicans, starting with Lincoln, have done the heavy lifting on civil rights. And, yet, modern American blacks only see that their Democrat plantation owners are willing to buy their votes with free cell phones and food stamps. This is not what MLK was talking about! Before hammering CT as a “Tom”, consider that since he was appointed – by a Republican, Clinton (the self-proclaimed 1st black president) appointed 2 justices, and Obama (the 1st half black president) appointed two justices and none of them were (and still aren’t) black. All the while, Census Bureau figures show that blacks have lost ground to whites in every single economic indicator during Obama’s administration. His economic policies continue to line the pockets of the bankers and brokers. Seriousely, if you’re looking for a Tom, why is Obama getting a pass? Isn’t he actually “in the house”?

    You might be a liberal if…

    You think it’s racist if black candidates don’t win, but you hate Condoleezza Rice, Michael Steele, Clarence Thomas and Allen West
    You rail against capitalism and big corporations….on Facebook
    You call Bush a war criminal while wearing a Che Guevara T-shirt
    You hate religion, but call conservatives Islamophobes
    You sue your school district because your daughter broke a nail playing dodgeball, but think murdering unborn babies is a right
    You don’t eat meat, but can’t see the fact that other animals do
    You think you’re free, but rely on the state to pay your health care and mortgage
    If you can’t walk past the Oreo display at the market without thinking of Justice Clarence Thomas
    If you can’t read the phrase “Justice Clarence Thomas” without getting red in the face
    If you use the words “raaaaacist”, “hater” or “nazi” at least once a day,

    Justice Thomas is on the Supreme Court for life, that’s for-evah. Whine all you can libbies.

  • BigTex33

    This one is my favorite:
    “Umm… Maybe the Supreme Court shouldn’t be mostly old white guys & a
    black guy who really wants to be liked by old white guys.”

    Hmm…let’s see…mostly old white guys…theres:
    1) Roberts – Not so old white guy
    2) Scalia – Old, but not so white (immigrant parents: Sicilian father / Italian mother)
    3) Kennedy – Old white guy
    4) Thomas – Old, definitely not white
    5) Ginsburg – Old, white but definitely not a guy
    6) Breyer – Old white guy
    7) Alito – Not so old and not so white (Italian immigrant parents)
    8) Sotomayor – Not old, not white, not a guy
    9) Kagan – Not old, white, guy…questionable but I don’t think so

    So apparently 3 really white guys and 2 Italian immigrants makes the court “a bunch of old white guys”. There you have it.

  • gildersleeve

    Justice Thomas make it the old way, he worked for it. Affirmative action has long since lost its value. If someone for an African or South American country got preferential treatment just because of skin color, it is not right. Thomas was and is right. Why give someone a hand up that just got into the country yesterday and make it harder on a citizen? Liberalism is a disease.

  • Samantha Cruz

    these posts prove the exact point the supreme court was making.. no matter how qualified Clarence Thomas is; the racist left assume that he only got the job because of his skin color. Affirmative action basically says that minorities cannot succeed on their own merits.

    • http://www.facebook.com/aemoreira81 aemoreira81

      The problem is that it is pretty hard to disprove the idea that Clarence Thomas was an affirmative action nominee…if one says that Obama benefited from affirmative action, one has to at least ask the question of Thomas (who went to law school when it was at its peak in the 1970s). What also does not help is the idea that Clarence Thomas is often seen as just tacking on to what Antonin Scalia says (although he does not always do so).

      Affirmative action would have to be gone for at least a generation before the suspicion disappears.

    Its good to see the backlash about the ruling and all. Fits in with the whole race war promotion. But where is the real reporting? Maybe a snippet or 2 of the majority opinion. Why did they vote that way? And if its true that Clarence Thomas did get into school do to affirmative action, wouldn’t it be somewhat important to try to understand why he’s against it now?
    Or is this a liberal website and facts don’t mean anything? First time here.

  • Tim

    So, I take it the average black person believes it’s perfectly “okay” to discriminate against white people based on the color of their skin and ethnic heritage?

    • Ratt Stone

      Yes.

      • Tim

        Yeah, so in essence, Clarence Thomas is standing up to shame other black people and to tell them that it’s wrong for them to give preferential treatment to anyone based on skin color. And I think he’s morally consistent and correct. I also think that most black people need to stop and think about this and ask themselves if they are being morally consistent, or if they are going on what other people fed them in political-speak?

        This is a time where we have to start expecting that people are going to be treated according to their character and their talents but not their skin color. And honestly, in the end analysis, white people DO want to hire qualified and talented black people ahead of everyone else because we’re DAMN IMPRESSED when we meet professional, educated, focused and intelligent black people. It’s the truth.

    affirmative action is nothing more than a politically deceptive name of an act of blatant racial discrimination. Racial discrimination was wrong when perpetrated by whites on blacks and is just as wrong and inexcusable when perpetrated by blacks and/or their liberal advocates on whites.
    Clarence Thomas is my hero, and those of you who are criticizing him for this decision are in my opinion “hipos”.

  • Leretseh

    Amazing the visceral HATE blacks for those who dare to think different. It also down right amazes me how much blacks see white people (the white community) as their only source of prosperity and self-worth. How about OPRAh, MICHEAL JORDAN, KOBE BRYANT, TIGER WOODS, Quincy JONES, BEYONCE, KANYE WEST…and on and on it goes, why don’t all these wealthy blacks move from their exclusive white communities and live in black communities?,

    Then the scene faded from color to black and white as the camera swung 180 degrees, stopping on a medium shot of a short man with black hair wearing a perfectly tailored Kuppenheimer suit. A lit Chesterfield smoldered in his right hand as he addressed the camera in deep sonorous tones that belied his lack of height:

    “Submitted for your approval, an excursion into a bizarre alternate universe. Destination: a country that was once a shining beacon of tolerance and diversity but is now presided over by a man whose unabashed ethnic supremacy is matched only by the endless tirade of bitter hateful rhetoric from his loyal minions, a nation formerly called the United States of America but with each passing day becomes more and more a part of The Twilight Zone.”

  • Tim

    Also, it’s a damn shame that black people are down on Clarence Thomas about a JUST RULING and saying all kinds of insulting things about him racially, but he’s one of the most powerful people in the country sitting at the top of one of the 3 major branches of Government. He is judging what is CONSTITUTIONAL and THAT MEANS YOU DON’T GET TO RULE WHAT YOU “FEEL”, YOU MUST RULE ON WHAT IS “LEGAL”! These dumboes need to read history about how the Supreme Court (before slavery was abolished) once ruled on how they “FELT” in order to keep slavery alive, and it was very, very WRONG.

    Clarence Thomas made a courageous ruling. A righteous ruling. And I’m proud of him as a HUMAN BEING, not a ‘black man’!

    Are black and white liberals thinking that affirmative action is going to last forever? They can’t get rid of the racist, selfish attitudes to prove themselves in the marketplace? And they can’t accept such a loss because Jackson and Sharpton and their ilk would lose their ‘jobs that aren’t really jobs.’ No more strong arming of employers, no bribes, no intimidation—but more jobs, less stress and danger in the workplace and more harmony. We must move past these crutches called affirmative action [because in the long run it’s really defirmative action.]

    So truth is really based on skin color? Can a man uphold principles of the Constitution without being subjected to hate speech from those that have the same skin color? I guess having red blood does not qualify as being human.
    And if the constitution can say that you have more of a right than someone else, can it not be turned around on you and say that you have lesser rights than someone else? That is exactly what affirmative action is. And it should cause such hatred for merely standing up for that principle.

  • Cola_GCock

    I LOVE the vicious, racist, vitriolic hate ridden intolerance on the part of the Left/Communist community when it comes to a black man who can and actually wants to think for himself! Have you noticed, the new way to say ni6 6er in a 21st Century, politically correctly manner these days is to use the term “Negro”. Sorry you pathetic, useful idiots, your world has changed, and you in the back of the bus. Thomas is right. In the words of St. Michael Jackson, “You are ignorant.” Affirmative action is racist. It always was, always will be. Some moron posted that Thomas used AA to get into college and law school. So I posit: Could Justice Thomas have gotten into his schools on his merit alone? I think the answer would be a resounding “YES”. But of course, you monsters think all Neggroes are ignorant and incompetent, and need imbeciles like yourselves to ease their path into mainstream society. You are truly pathetic. Glad I don’t think people are dumb merely because of the color of their skin. Now go do something worthy to match your righteous indignation: smoke some pot or as your affirmative action President would do, blow some coke.

  • jojo

    He is where he is by his hard work and ambition. He would be successful with or without affirmative action. Affirmative action was only a tool not a guarantee. A tool that he used not a ready made success handed to him. Affirmative action is a double edged sword guaranteeing some access where they are doomed to failure.

Its a tragedy that white people keep driving down there and shooting all their black young men. I’m sure its white people that are causing all the teenage pregnancy that results in welfare families…. Yeah, its racism that’s keeping them down.
    Now they’re upset at Justice Thomas because he seems to imply they could actually get into a college based on their merits, not their race. No wonder they hate him so.

    The hate and racism which is represented by the Democrats and their supporters is unbelievable. The mantra of these people is that African Americans are incapable of succeeding unless their white democrats saviors step in and rescue them. The idea of people like Clarence Thomas, Condaleeza Rice , Ben Carson or Allen West succeeding without their handouts is an existential threat to their power. Imagine if all African Americans realized that they had the ability to get off of the plantation which their democrat masters have placed them on? What would that do to the leaders of the NAACP and the democrat politicians?

    • http://www.facebook.com/aemoreira81 aemoreira81

      Except that one can never be sure that none of them benefited from affirmative action (AA) at some point. You know that Walter Williams and Thomas Sowell did not because they finished their schooling before affirmative action came into vogue and had to earn their way on merit. Before one says—their transcripts say otherwise…how do I know that they didn’t get special treatment on the way? If you say to judge on the content of character—the presence of AA causes problems.

      In order for one to say that affirmative action didn’t benefit someone and be certain, one would not know until the end of the AA generation has retired, or is forced to reapply for their current jobs on merit.

      • Carolyn

        Precisely the point of not allowing it and allowing equality for all. People just assume that a black person got their because of affirmative action. Kagan admitted she was a recipient but recused herself. Sotomayer didn’t. Race discrimination is a cancer on our society. It is discrimination against a white person with high grades and achievements being turned down for college because of the color of their skin. Slavery ended over 100 years ago.It is the socialist dems that created the ills for the black community. Think about it. Aren’t they mostly ….white? So who is the racist?

    I wonder if these people realize that affirmative action is actually an insult. When you support it you are admitting you couldn’t do it yourself and you needed special treatment.

  • Ken Douglas

    See the problem for liberals is that MLK’s dream did come true. Everyone is there own individual today. Judged, by the vast majority of society, on the content of ones character (as twisted as that perception of character may be). But that’s not what so called “progressives” want. Blacks only make up less than 14% of the population but will only be satisfied with 50%+ representation in all aspects of society. That’s not how it works. Everyone deserves an equal opportunity regardless of race. You don’t know where any one individual comes from or what they have had to endure in life regardless of what color they are. Of course racists exist, in every race and every corner of the planet, and always will. So do psychopaths and sociopaths (politicians?), etc. It’s human nature/stupidity. Blacks want more than their fair share and an unfair advantage. Taking race into consideration in any case should be illegal every time. Affirmative action is racism and should be illegal.

  • squirefld

    By the time the mid-term elections are held in November, seven or eight other states will have, on their ballots, questions to prohibit affirmative action in college admissions, The Justice we need to thank is Justice Breyer. How does this case differ from the state laws on “gay marriage” working it’s way up to the Supreme Court? The states made a decision and Breyer ruled that they could clearly do so. Maybe a big surprise is coming and all of the screaming and hair pulling is being directed toward the wrong guy!

  • ustuffit

    What?? No special treatment? That would make everyone equal. We can’t have that.

    Most of the people talking trash really couldn’t understand the point of view the supreme’s have granted they are all out of touch with America but in this case i think the age of affirmative action is over if we keep basing things off color instead of indvidual merit we will never break the cycle…….

  • ustuffit

    Affirmative Action was always sold as, “A hand up, not a hand-out.” The left proves their own lie. Teach a man to fish, you feed him for a lifetime- Give a man a fish, you create a bum (aka obumbler voter) that thinks you owe him a fish every time he wants one, and thinks you should deliver and cook it for him!

  • J_Biggs

    Democrats believe that they own every minority in America. Democrats practice plantation politics. Any minority that tries to leave the Democrat plantation is severely whipped politically until they beg the masters mercy.

  • pbtruth

    I know that truth and facts are never accepted by those on the left that seem to go through life with lies and simple sayings to live by. But when did Thomas every say he got his job do to affirmative action. He worked himself up and unlike those that did not deserve their position, that they only got do to affirmative action, as they could not do it on their own as Thomas did. You must be admitting that you are inferior, since you admit you can’t make it on your own. I always thought you could make it on your own but maybe I was wrong.

    Wow. What venom the left spews. Affirmative action was big mistake and began the decline of this country. No. Not that blacks or minorities are stupid like some will automatically infer I meant. What I am saying is that it started the decline of personal responsibility and competition. The left has brought the public school system down the toilet. Now they don’t teach reading, writing and arithmetic. They teach them to pass a test and then they proceed with their socialist agenda. THIS is NOT fair to those in those schools. If I were rich li8ke George Soros, I would have every child in America in a private school where they could get a decent education. Hail to Clarence Thomas! You should be the chief justice.

  • Garry Sills

    Blacks have been fighting against discimination for decades, now that the Supreme court is allowing States to make the choice on whether they want this law in their State, which is discrimination in it’s own right, they are up in arms about it! If your read the ignorant tweets, you know why they are up in arms. They can’t get into colleges on their own achievements, and knowledge, they have to be put in colleges by the Government, they have become so dependent upon the Government, they can’t do anything on their own to accomplish their goals in life. Most don’t have any goals, and that’s the problem. Colleges should use grades to qualify applicants for admission. The Blacks biggest problem is Government and people like Jessie Jackson, and Al Sharpton, keeping them in the ghettos

    Sorry we are rolling in on this late but fashionably none the less, Sotomeyer as well does not appear to be the sharpest tool in the Supreme Court and a Notable Dissenter more than not in most considerations that said it should come to an end.

    The big story of course this week has been the BLM and Bundy feud which has consumed every corner of Media Coverage one could hope for as a commenter.

    It’s a Gas baby literally with the Administrations new proposed Rancher Tax bad timing don’t ya think the O’ministration is proposing tax on Cow Flatulence or better known as Cow Farts (real) under the guise of green house gas and effect rules.

Anybody tries taking away some sort of “entitlement” is seen as the enemy, they’re leveling the playing field, which is just so not fair! What need do we have now for affirmative action? Are these people who tweeted this garbage, especially those who are black, honestly saying that they can’t succeed without it?? What excuse does anyone have nowadays for not being able to get into college? How about, if you support affirmative action still in 2014 it means that you’re racist because you don’t think people who are not white are capable of succeeding based on their own merit.

    “There is a class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs. There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who don’t want the patient to get well, because as long as the disease holds out they have not only an easy means of making a living, but also an easy medium through which to make themselves prominent before the public.” – Booker T. Washington, 1911

Their deranged ideology proves only one thing: that they refuse to countenance the concept of an individual human being with an individual perspective unalloyed by the color of his skin.

      In this country we are experiencing a change in demographics. This will result in the change Obama is looking for. We will have more third world citizens and others living here. We will more and more not be able to compete with China and Europe. We will become poorer and poorer. In our past we lived well because there was a climate to succeed. In our future we will find a good part of our population looking for a handout and crying about their lot even as they make no effort to get out of it. In the end, the middle class and rich citizens of this country will not make enough to support the unwashed masses. In the end everyone will suffer. The only alternative is for those people, to whom you recommend the GOP cater, recognize their very existence is dependent on the continuation of the American capitalistic way of life. This is the truth. The party will come to an end of its own weight if it is not stopped soon by the intelligence of the voters of this country. I do not hold out any hope, however, that this will happen.

    The hate the left and African Americans have for Clarence Thomas should show everyone just how tolerant the left really is. It’s a shame they have nothing but hate for an African American who achieved his current status through his merit rather than the color of his skin.

    Affirmative action, and any other race-based preference, is racial discrimination. What are we missing here? It’s not somehow acceptable because the notion behind the discrimination is benevolent, especially in a zero-sum game like admissions where a preferential admission comes at the cost of a more qualified applicant who was only less qualified” because of his/her skin color. Retarded liberal ideology has a complicated rationalization as to why this abhorrent practice is somehow not morally reprehensible, but we all know it’s just another of the many doses of rationalized liberal drivel we have become accustomed to.

    Also – the term “reverse” discrimination is a racist term. That concept assumes that only “white” people racially discriminate, thus when it happens to “white” people it’s somehow “reverse.” The truth (truth being a concept foreign to liberals) is that all races discriminate, discrimination therefore is the same regardless of perpetrator or victim. Accordingly, use of the term “reverse” discrimination reveals in the speaker a certain inherent racial bias against so-called “white” people.

  • John Wilson

    Brown vs Board of Education:
    Chief Justuce Warren, ex-Republican Governer of California, appointed by Republican President Eisenhower, was able to bring all the justices of a splintered court to agree to a unanimous, rather than a majority, decision declaring that segregation in public schools was unconstitutional.

    After reviewing psychological studies showing black girls in segregated schools had low racial self-esteem, the Court concluded that separating children on the basis of race creates dangerous inferiority complexes that may adversely affect black children’s ability to learn. Dr’s. Kenneth and Mamie Clarks’ work contributed to the ruling of the U.S. Supreme Court in which it determined that de jure racial segregation in public education was unconstitutional.

    Dr. Kenneth Clark, who passed away in May 2005, served on the board of the New York Civil Rights Coalition, of which he is Chairman Emeritus.
    http://nycivilrights.org/

    Not everyone accepted the Brown v. Board of Education decision:

    For fifteen years, schools in many states of the South remained segregated
    Virginia, Senator(D) Harry F. Byrd, Sr. organized the Massive Resistance movement that included the closing of schools rather than desegregating them.

    Texas Attorney General(D) John Ben Shepperd organized a campaign to generate legal obstacles to implementation of desegregation.

    Arkansas Governor(D) Orval Faubus called out his state’s National Guard to block black students’ entry to Little Rock Central High School. President Dwight Eisenhower responded by deploying elements of the 101st Airborne Division from Fort Campbell, Kentucky, to Arkansas and by federalizing Arkansas’s National Guard.

    Florida’s response was mixed. Its legislature(D) passed an Interposition Resolution denouncing the decision and declaring it null and void. But Florida Governor(D) LeRoy Collins, though joining in the protest against the court decision, refused to sign it arguing that the attempt to overturn the ruling must be done by legal methods.

    Alabama Gov.(D) George Wallace personally blocked the door to Foster Auditorium at the University of Alabama to prevent the enrollment of two black students.

    Supreme Court Justice(R) Clarence Thomas wrote in Missouri v. Jenkins (1995) that at the very least, Brown I has been misunderstood by the courts. He said:
    “Brown I did not say that “racially isolated” schools were inherently
    inferior; the harm that it identified was tied purely to de jure
    segregation, not de facto segregation. Indeed, Brown I itself did not
    need to rely upon any psychological or social-science research in order
    to announce the simple, yet fundamental truth that the Government
    cannot discriminate among its citizens on the basis of race. . . .

    Segregation was not unconstitutional because it might have caused
    psychological feelings of inferiority. Public school systems that
    separated blacks and provided them with superior educational
    resources making blacks “feel” superior to whites sent to lesser schools
    —would violate the Fourteenth Amendment, whether or not the white
    students felt stigmatized, just as do school systems in which the
    positions of the races are reversed. Psychological injury or benefit is
    irrelevant . . .

    Given that desegregation has not produced the predicted leaps
    forward in black educational achievement, there is no reason to think
    that black students cannot learn as well when surrounded by
    members of their own race as when they are in an integrated
    environment. (. . .) Because of their “distinctive histories and
    traditions,” black schools can function as the center and symbol of
    black communities, and provide examples of independent black
    leadership, success, and achievement.”

    Democrats had a poor history before their “enlightenment”. Of our minority citizens, our Black ones have not benefited much, if any, from the new, both Black and White, progressive liberal Democrats’ ideology..

  • sniffles09

    liberals are the true racists of today
    for them to demand quota’s is actually their racist attitude of saying they think black as a race are dumber and need lower standards.

  • Samurai

    Affirmative Action HURTS minorities in the long run. It hides behind a cruel and veiled conceit of “soft” racism, which cynically assumes blacks are inferior to whites, who require special entitlements to enable them to compete with “superior” whites; it’s a despicable philosophy.

    In addition, the added legal liabilities imposed on employers that dare employ blacks, acts as a disincentive to black hiring. Moreover, employers naturally wonder whether college-educated blacks got into their respective colleges because of affirmative action regulations or because of actual merit; ceteris paribus–it’s more logical to hire whites over blacks to remove such doubts…

    Affirmative Action also creates a tremendous amount of animosity between races, where blacks are often promoted based on their skin color rather than their merits.

    MLK’s dream was a society where all men are treated EQUALLY and judged NOT on the color of their skin but on their content of character.

    It’s nice to see SCOTUS changing this cruel form of diminished expectations of blacks.

    • John Wilson

      I understand your valid points but I have to say that when I read a white person criticizing AA because it hurts blacks; I have to think OMG …. You are being made to be a second class person because of your race and you are concerned that it is hurting your discriminator? !!
      White people are by far the least racist off all races! To a fault. This is proof of that !

      • TeaPartyLee

        Don’t like being made into a second class citizen on the basis of race? Then you should be utterly opposed to AA as it is the VERY PROCESS by which this happens.

        When everyone doubts you because your accomplishments might not be genuine, then you are a second class citizen.

        When everyone assumes that whatever status or position you hold is based on your skin color rather than your abilities, then you are a second class citizen.

        When standards are lowered because it is presumed that you’re just not good enough to live up to them, then you are a second class citizen.

        • John Wilson

          I agree in a sense, but I was saying that white men are second class citizens through AA, not blacks.
          I was saying that it is weird that whites are being discriminated against and yet they are concerned that this discrimination is hurting blacks. Only white people could be capable of this kind of self sacrificing racial altruism.

  • Lance

    Democrats believe black people are too stupid or lazy to help themselves or work hard for something they want, so it must be given to them. This is the only way they can succeed. Black people in general know this and accept it or why else would they want affirmative action. Myself, as a white person, do not want my race to get a handout. This will make us stronger as a race of people and we will rein supreme for many years to come because of it. When you get white people on the same handouts as the black people then our race will be in the same shape as black people. Can I make it any more simple.

      CT is not a product of AA as it is practised today. Rather the is the product of AA as it was practised BEFORE it became a euphemism for preferential treatment on the basis of race.

      Once upon a time, believe it or not, AA meant ignoring race, or to be more specific, evaluating black candidates under the same criteria as everyone else, treating them equally.

    All jobs, college entrance info, etc should all be submitted by your social security number and no name, age, race or sex. That is the only way to completely remove race and sex from the equation and make it 100% based on merit which is what it should be. If minorities cant compete, they need to try harder, not lower standards. Why do they continue to let the democrats insist they are not smart enough to work harder, it’s the Dems who think they are too stupid and need lower standards.

  • TheKingJAK

    Whether Justice Thomas benefited from affirmative action or not is irrelevant, because he actually grew up during Jim Crow, whereas the critics, from what I see so far, were never even alive to experience such didiscrimination. How amazingly ironic that they become the very bigots which Justice Thomas and others had to fight against.

        Logic is not the strong suit of mantra-spouting Libbies. Neither is critical objectivity, fairness, consistency or actual tolerance. To the all-too-typical libbie/prog, the vast majority of their individual decisions are emotion-based and their thinking, in my opinion, always leans towards promoting those things that make them “feel” good. So many libbie/progs can only think of things that would be nice to have right now. What the consequences might be tomorrow for getting something right now rarely enters into their analysis of the decisions they make. Look at our national debt, Social Security and Medicare. Basic economic realities tell us that our ever-increasing debt will one day be a crushing yoke on our nation collectively and the majority of us individually, Yet we are constantly told that we MUST increas that debt to make someone “feel good” today. As far as SS and Medicare go, if you follow the debate, all those who debate the looming insolvency of both funds, all that is disagreed on is in what calendar year will each fund collapse into insolvency. Yet despite the unanimous agreement that both funds WILL collapse, we continue to watch Congrss after Congress kick the can and allow these two entitlement programs to fly down the rails at high speed with no consideration of applying the brakes. Remember when Bush tried to address the looming failure of Soc Security? Not only did Dems say he was trying to take the food out of old peoples’ mouth, his own party, the GOP, summarily ignored his efforts to address in inevitable.

We should abolish any law that seeks favorable treatment of someone based on their skin color. All of these affirmative action laws are unhumanitarian. The government should get out of the business of manipulating racial demographics. Their position that everyone is equal, but some people are more equal than others is absurd. They have no business doing that and they should stop it.

    No racial preference means just that. We should be one people, Americans all. What some people don’t understand is that racial preferences can be turned around to bite them in the butt. White, Black, or Asian, the only thing that matters is to be the best you can be, and to be considered based on your knowledge and character only. An admission that you need special consideration due to the color of your skin is to admit that you are inferior. I won’t accept that as an excuse cause we all can do better.

        YES, and It’s just like the SCOTUS decision against affirmative action in Michigan. Democrats sell people on the idea that their skin color makes them 2nd class citizens. So when the people fail, they have racism as a ready excuse. I heard people arguing that inner cities areas like Detroit are 2nd class because of racism, when in fact it is the people of the area who allowed Detroit to turn into a living hell. Voting for democrats for years and years has turned the place into a joke, yet they continue to do so rather than admit that they have failed themselves and their children in exchange for excuses and false promises.

    The first case of AA racial discrimination was the capping of Asian students in California. I think if AA disappeared, most of the college students would be Asian.

And if the people paying for the colleges are not allowed to get their relatives into the school, well good luck with fund raising.

Ruthless betrayal is what we the people deserve until we pull out our constitution and bill of rights because there is a book called the Righteous Mind and the “i” is the middle finger.

      In comparison to free market persuasion, coercion is a pathetic cop out but causes for alarm become public institutions of coercion and in turn criminal enterprises but Philo, of the Alexandria Israelites, kicked a touchdown Buddha by reconciling Greek and Roman philosophy with God. The Proverbs game was on the line. What would Caligula do?

      John Nash’s beautiful mind recognized the importance of interactions in which the results of one person’s choices depend not only on his own behavior but also on the choices of another person. There is a related game called Ultimatum. You and your partner split $10. Less than $3 deals disgust and anger. The dealer has a pulpit.

      The Laffer effect is no joke. Charles Adams, an international tax attorney and historian, wrote books on taxes. Once tax rates rise above the disgust and anger point, the expected extra tax revenue never shows up. A flat tax system is part of Constitution. Everyone has to pay taxes to keep as many people’s tax rate below the disgust and anger tax rate or make sure an overwhelming majority is disgusted with high taxes.

      Carman, Kenneth, John, and yours truly believes dealers can routinely get an $8 to $10 deal by getting his or her partner work for a $3 to $5 deal. With each $3 to $5 of earned success the partner becomes a dealer that turns the $3 to $5 deal into $6 to $8 of earned success. Turning $10 into $13 is a win-win systemic solution that creates good people, great outcomes, and durable trust but when it rains, rainmakers show up and turn everything to dirt.

      There will always be zero-sum losers who just accept less than $3 deals and think the key to success is being an abusive dealer. A $7-$3 deal isn’t better than a $6-$4 deal because $7-$3 deals turn into $6-$2, $5-$1, and $4-two bit deals. Rainmakers turn everything to dirt because they feel entitled to $7up and someone else has to pay for the diet $7up.

      There is such a difference between earned and unearned success that five Marshall Plans destroyed the southern Africa.

      European fault. They did not teach the Africans to be leaders, and train two generations. Preparing a country for independence takes at least 30 years, and it requires showing the governed how to run things by placing them in such positions.

      Before one says that their IQ is low, IQ is determined almost exclusively by nurture. The nature part of the equation was thrown into doubt in 2011.

    Just another case of the Bro’s in the liberal ‘hood spewing their vitriol.

  • David Hill

    The blacks never liked Clarence Thomas anyway. These are the same haters.

  • Paul

    Why are these Leftists complaining ? They are the ones who are always complaining about ‘ equality ‘. And they are supposed to be against ‘ racism ‘ because they are always shouting about it – yet when a race neutral policy is put in place, the hateful Leftists come out in droves to denounce it. Notice that these same hateful Leftists didn’t say a word about the insulting, condescending, racism that came from the self described ‘ Wise Latino woman ‘, who apparently believes that so called minorities are not smart enough to go to college without special preferential treatment because of skin color ? The ‘ Wise Latino woman ‘ on the Supreme Court is just as hateful as the rest of her fellow travelers…

    Thomas is one of the best Americans. The anti-Thomas bloggers here are he worst Americans.

  • John Wilson

    I’m not sure if liberalism is more a mental disease or more a religion. So I am going with both.

    • bonnieblue2A

      Race politics largely arise from the temple of perpetual victimhood.

      • carlzilla

        Victimhood ! just breakdown in a black neighborhood in Detroit, then you’ll see who’s the victim.

  • Manfred Hideous

    What kills me is the use of Uncle Tom as a pejorative. He DIED covering the escape of two fellow slaves.

    • TeaRunner

      God forbid someone should read a book. Says a lot as to why they think they need special treatment.

  • Liedetectors

    Wow.What a bunch of filthy,hating racists.And judging from avatars,most of them are black.

  • $1183266

    for all you affirmative action pimps, get off your collective a–es and produce something of value.

  • Garys_opinion

    There seems to be one common thread in these tweets, that is that blacks feel that they deserve to be treated special, and that they can’t make it on their own.
    I’m wondering if maybe they can’t!

    I can’t taste the difference between Wilson and Barack vegetable oil. The Federal Reserve was created on Jekyll Island and Obama is the Prince of Hyde Park. A famous Central Banker said something like “If I control the money supply, I care not for your laws”. If debt is money that can only be paid off with more money …. someone ends up owning everything and everybody.

    The 10% public sector corresponds to a bottom 20% to top 20% ideal distribution is around $3.50,$4.50,$6.25,$8.25, and $11.25.

    We went off the gold standard 40 years ago. Over that period the average overall tax rate was about 30%. Over the last 40 years relative wealth distribution went from ($2.75,$4.00,$5.25,$7.00,$9.25) to ($1.25,$2.00,$2.75,$3.50, & $18.50). 30% to 40% Obama has taken us to ($1.00,$1.75,$2.50, $3.25, and $16.75). If the dollar is no longer the world currency, ($0.75,$1.31,$1.87,$2.41,$12.19).

    A white guy like me won’t win an argument defending Andrew Johnson but Washington and Wall Street have been parasites and Andrew Johnson wasn’t so much.

  • Glen Kissel

    There’s an answer to the phony arguments above.
    When a president nominates someone to the Supreme Ct, there is no legally mandated application process and there is no fixed pool of applicants. The president is in a unique situation of exercising Freedom of Association (sadly, a freedom generally denied to the rest of us)
    The nomination of a Sanda Day O’Connor or a Clarence Thomas was NOT the product of a legally coerced sexual or racial preference; it was the free choice of an executive.

  • Vasco DeGama

    as conservatives we obviously have to stop using reason and logic when discussing issues with liberals. from now on resort to feeeeeelingsth and ad hominem attacks. that’ll show em.

  • acronymous

    The haters are, on top of everything else, badly misinformed. Clarence Thomas got into school before there was any affirmative action there. He got in on his own merits.

    And, go figure, he was plenty good enough as a student.

  • MooTieFighter

    Glad to see their true colors. Give us blacks special treatment or we will speak vile things about you. What if every ethnicity thought the way blacks do?

  • MooTieFighter

    “I have a dream that one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin” Except for college entrance.

  • Buddy P

    So just how long do blacks want to be given special treatment? Or are they saying we are just to stupid, lazy, and weak to survive without the government’s help? If so they have an esteem problem.

  • mh

    i love all this bitterness and hate from the left. the court made the absolute correct decision here. how long do minorities need to be given an unfair break? if you claim you still need this initiative then you are basically saying that you cant compete on a level playing fleld. that’s quite an admission! it must suck to not be able to compete fair and square. tough luck..time to step up or be left behind as it is everywhere else in the world….

  • fel121

    The point is Justice Thomas got into school using Affirmative action now he is against said same, and you right wing retards are not bright enough to see the hypocrisy because, well because you are right wing retards.

    • TeaRunner

      You’re proud to be a discriminatory racist?

    • Paul

      “The point is Justice Thomas got into school using Affirmative action now he is against said same”.
      Is that why the Leftists are so hateful ? Why aren’t the Leftists celebrating a race neutral ruling, because they supposedly hate racism more than anything else ? Since I’m not too bright, maybe you can clear up the discrepancies for me Skippy…

    • Pablo Hablo

      A policy that mandates a biased prejudice among the citizenry is only palatable if its END is somehow defined. Is it?

    • ReturnOfTheFallen

      Yeah, because the best way to get beyond racism is by institutionalizing it.
