Clarence Thomas Is Also Race Conscious – Hit & Run : Reason.com

Take a look at Thomas’ speeches and writings, and you’ll find them steeped in African American history and tradition. His statement about “northern liberal elites,” for instance, echoes Malcom X’s famous observation in his Autobiography that unlike the “honest” Southern white, who “bares his teeth to the black man,” the “Northern white man, he grins with his teeth, and his mouth has always been full of tricks and lies.” As Thomas told Reason back in 1987, “I’ve been very partial to Malcolm X, particularly his self-help teachings. I have virtually all of the recorded speeches of Malcolm X.”
