The Shameful Blackout of ClarenceThomas, Walter Williams and Thomas Sowell

Via Billy

Clarence Thomas, one of nine members of the Supreme Court and the second black to ever join the Court, is not in the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C. Asked to explain Thomas' absence, the chief spokeswoman for the Smithsonian said, "The museum's exhibitions are based on themes, not individuals."

Yet the museum plans to add a popular local D.C. television news broadcaster. The museum's founding director, Lonnie Bunch, said the broadcaster "symbolized that it was really important that America was changing and his presence was a symbol of that change." And Thomas, raised in poverty to become only the second black to sit on the Supreme Court, is not "a symbol of that change"?

  1. The reason for the omission is none of the gentlemen fit the liberal narrative and they voice a point of view that has been branded as politically incorrect. It is censorship by omission. They "have to" be omitted. They challenge the liberal article of not-to-be questioned faith, that society is so racist, unfair and unjust that those born in poverty are doomed to spend the rest of their lives in poverty, and the USA will always be a racist nation, unless, there is massive intervention by the federal government to rescue them. Walter Williams is a rebuke to them. Clarence Thomas is rebuke to them. Thomas Sowell is a rebuke to them. They are living proof that one can be born into poverty and a minority does not condemn one to place in life. It is possible to over come adversity, thrive and earn a position of honor. I am a white guy. I do not give a damn about the color of Mr. Sowell's skin. I do stand in awe of the brilliance of his mind to state things (read his Thoughts at Random or his magnificent work; Basic Economics) in manner that I can describe as near perfect in its execution. I thank God for him and consider myself a better man for reading his works. The quote by Walter William's is so perfect, concise and self-evident that it can not be improved upon. These men and not the pop culture thugs ought to be held up as living proof that one can better themselves. BTW, I'm going to call the chief spokeswoman for the Smithsonian a liar and full of s--t. I'd bet money on that. The Smithsonian like every thing else in Mordor on the Potomac is political. To use one of my dad's quotes: I may have been born in the dark, but it wasn't last night.
