Is Clarence Thomas A Sell Out?

Clarence Thomas was born June 23, 1948 in the small black community of Pin Point, Georgia.  He grew up poor and spent a significant portion of his childhood without his father.  Thomas attended seminary at the urging of his grandfather and graduated from St. John Vianney Minor Seminary in 1967.

The assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. in 1968 encouraged Thomas to become involved in social justice causes, and he began protesting the Vietnam War as well as campaigning for civil rights.  He helped establish the Black Student Union at Holy Cross College.  It was his attendance of Yale University Law School that helped shaped his conservative views.

After earning his law degree, working for Missouri Attorney General John Danforth, and spending several years as an attorney for Monsanto, Thomas eventually received several appointments from President Ronald Reagan.  This included being named as the chair of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) in 1982.

President George H.W. Bush nominated him to the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.  This would be Thomas’ only judgeship prior to his appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court in 1991 as a replacement for Thurgood Marshall.

Despite allegations of sexual harassment from former aide Anita Hill, the selection committee ruled that there was not enough evidence to support Hill’s allegations, and Thomas was approved by a 52-48 vote of the Senate.

One of Thomas’ decisions that have made many question whether or not he truly supports the rights of black people was his opposition to decisions that favor affirmative action.

Thomas has also been criticized for his history of favoring police over defendants when it comes to Fourth Amendment issues of unreasonable search and seizure.

The following video is a 60 minutes interview.  The interview is conducted by Steve Kroft and originally aired in 2007.  The two discuss the fact that so many black people consider him a sell out for his conservative views as well as Thomas’s initial hesitancy at being appointed to the Supreme Court.

  1. This bitch isn't worth a comment, except "fuck him".

  2. OF COURSE HE IS A SELL OUT!! FUCK HIM AND THE TOWN HE WAS BORN IN IN GEORGIA

  3. Clarence Thomas has shown by the sloppy reasoning behind his position on important Civil Rights issues that he has little to no concern for the beliefs of other African Americans. I think he even took the side of the Klan in one case back around 2003. In a free country Thomas is entitled to his own beliefs, but consistently ruling against African Americans on everything?

  4. This NIGGA is a complete sell out! A Selfish Self Centered Asshole who hasn’t done anything positive for blacks since his appointment. Fuck him & his views! This NIGGA might have 5 ppl at his funeral whenever he dies.

  5. That’s why he is in that position, because he was always willing to be as puppet. They put him through humiliation(Anita hill) to keep him passive, so he follows all the masters rules.

  6. Eating to much of that caucasian wife qussy made him forget he can out of a black one… even his mama should be ashamed of his dumb black ass…!

  7. Many a black folks forget from whence they cometh and goeth, out of this world and life a**s backwards !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. Need I list ALL the Supreme Court decisions that causes and will continue to cause Irreparable harm to Blacks and poor people for generations? What about Anita Hill? Would Uncle Thomas approve of treating his white wife in such a manner? Hell YES, he's a sell out!

  9. Yes this coon is a sell out he hates himself and black people. He got a job for life it should be a law no one should have job for life. Fuck him in his bitch azz

  10. This black niggar is a stepping and fetching for his master Bush he’s just like the tea party no to everything

  11. Clarence Thomas look like the slave on the box of Uncle Ben’s Rice

  12. Why would this blog insult the readers this wonderful weekend?

  13. the answer is ! HELL YA, he's a SAMBO which mean's SELL OUT..

  14. What a terrible disservice & disgrace this Uncle Clarence Tom has done to the memory and legacy of Thurgood Marshall. SHAMEFUL!!!!…Just disgusting!!!! Uncle Clarence Tom has forgotten where he came from. ‘Is he a sell out?’…ha ha…that’s funny!!!… Is rice on a paper plate in the middle of a snow storm white????!!?…HELL YEAH HE’S A SELL OUT!!!…..

  15. ………………..BLACK TRASH!!!!!!!!!…………..

  17. MUCH LOVE TO MS. ANITA HILL!!! FOR BEING A STRONG BLACK WOMAN AND STANDING UP AGAINST THIS ASSWHOLE……

  18. Thurgood Marshall is turning over in his grave right now!!!

  19. Clarence Thomas has his own brand of cookies referred to as "Clarence Thomas Cookies", Also called Oreo Cookies. Could he be a first class Uncle Tom?

  20. Clarence Uncle Tom Thomas is a puppet on the court. He is not noted for writing court briefs and generally will look at the other conservative justices to see which way they are voting so he can side with them. He claim to fame is beating Anita Hill on sexual harassment charges with his trained lying ass. His day is coming and the only real white person who really likes him, is his wife, and she might be jiving.

  21. When a person forget where he came from and how he got there and those that help him along the way is truly a sell out.

  22. House nigga!!!!

  23. He seems to be angry or bitter for some reason

  24. Yes, he was purchased by the Republicans during the Anita Hill trial, now he is afraid to open his mouth, he sold his soul!!

  25. I think you hit the nail on the head Marvin. I think he has a serious Black inferiority complex. I'm not one to judge who people get involved with sexually, romantically, etc. But when a 'successful' Black man, from Da Souf, marries a white woman, that says a whole lot. That he could ignore the rank racism of the Republikan Party of White supremacy that began with the election of Ronald Reagan, pretty much tells you all you wan't to know. Reagan began the "War-on-Drugs" that lead to the mass-incarceration of Black men. In everyone of his decisions, Thomas affirmed the Prison-Industrial Complex,etc. That said, this article is the worst piece of crap of I have read so far on here. It starts out asking a question, then tells you to look at a video.

  26. Definition of sellout, blk who pull themself out of poverty, goes to school, stay out trouble, dont commit crime, dont sell drugs, go to college, got two parents married to each other then had kids, who dont live in da hood, who live in da hood and tryin to get out, aint a baby mama or baby daddy, dont thug or bang, who speak correct english and dont sound like they got a mouth full of marbles, dont have five kids by five men, dont have have five kids by five baby mamas, live in a nice neighborhood thats clean and neat, work hard to have a nice life, make good decisions with their life, love and protect their kids, dont have babies while they broke and poor, aint ghetto fabulous, dont start trouble, dont have nasty attitude, dont blame whites for all their failures, who make straight A’s or make A’s and B’s in school, aint fukking by sixth grade, who buy a house instead pod expensive car when they live in da hood, dont hate on hardworkiing successful blks, dont say they hate whites but sew hair on their heads that look like white ppl hair, work oit every day and eat right so they stay skinny and dont become obese, read lots of books, don throw shade, dont watch reality tv and dont have a destructive ghetto mentality, dont give out handouts to lazy ppl who need to get up get out and get somethin good for themself, who think when you commit crime you deserve to go to jail, who dont play loud music and disturb their neighbors, who arent loud and combative. To the blk community this is what a sellout is. Oh well ima sellout and my fiancee is too, and my pops and moms and brother and his wife and if they raise my my new baby nephew right he will be a sellout too, and my close friends is sellouts too, my boss is blk and smart and educated and beautiful and wear her own hair so shes a sellout too, ghetto mentality say decent hard working blks who respect others are sellouts.

    • Thanks for that!

  27. The only time I could honestly believe, that Clarence Thomas ever considered himself Black, was when he needed affirmative action to go to school, and since voted against affirmative action and any other need that would benefit Black people. You cannot be a sell-out if you, never considered yourself to be Black. Blackness is not just skin color.

  28. what a ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS start to this article…the placement of the word "is" at the beginning!!!! the word should be number 3 in the sentence….(SHOULD read) "C. T IS a sellout"!!!! he's voted AGAINST ANY LAW/RULING THAT WOULD IN ANY WAY BENEFIT BLACK PEOPLE!!!!…as the sister "Elaine Clemons" so aptly put it…FUCK HIM !!!! TRUE "WIGGAS" LIKE HIM SHOULD BE LYNCHED BY US!!!!

  29. George Bush pulled a rabbit outta his hat with this CLOWN…A "BLACK" MAN WHO ABSOLUTELY HATES BLACK PEOPLE!!!!….THE ORIGINAL "UNCLE RUCKUS" !!!!

  30. Of course he's a sellout! He's Supreme Court Justice Sambo.If you're black and you dealing with a racist white supremacy society that wish to harm and hinder your life don't turn to this negroe to have your back he'll just side with them.This damn fool reminds me of Uncle Ruckus from the Boondocks with all the shit he's done. I can't stand this damn Oreo (Black on the outside, white on the inside).

  32. @ Carolina I, Cole Allen Suazo….”YOU”, YOU are left!

  33. I can remember some of the testimony of the Senate hearings of Judge Thomas. At no time did I hear him say that he was a Black representative nor did I hear any of his supporters claim that he was being nominated to be a Black representative.
    As far as I could hear and understand he would be an honest evaluator of the issues brought before him.
    I am not a lawyer; therefore I do not believe I am able to judge his decisions. I believe he will have to be evaluated by the many decisions that he has been involved in that have had nothing to do with the Black race.
    Since he was not supported by the democrats or as I remember any Blacks, I do not see how he can be called a sellout or a representative of the Black movement.
    Not all Black individuals represent the Black movement; some individuals are just Blacks who are attempting to do the job that they are responsible for in the best way possible.
    Hopefully, every Black that has an opportunity to fill a position that was previous unobtainable will do his very best, thus disproving the old argument that “Blacks Can’t etc.”
    Certainly we have many highly qualified Blacks that take on the role of Black Leader!
    The problem with the Supreme Court is the length of time that the Republican Party has had control of the Presidency and the Congress. The conservative thinkers have captured the majority of votes!

  34. You got a really excellent site, Glad I noticed it by means of yahoo.

  35. There are various agencies which deals with evidences located at a crime scene. Police use it for investigation, prosecuting attorney presents it before court of law as effectively as a forensic science technician analyzes evidences thoroughly to help other agencies in criminal procedure. A forensic science technician conducts comprehensive chemical and physical study of evidence submitted by a law enforcement agency

  36. Hi there, everything is going perfectly here and ofcourse every one is sharing facts, that’s truly fine, keep up writing.|
