A racist black congresswoman claimed that President Obama needs to fill former Justice Antonin Scalia’s Supreme Court seat with a black person because there aren’t any on there right now.
Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.) basically said that because Justice Clarence Thomas strays from the plantation, he can’t be considered truly black.
Bass was speaking on Al Sharpton’s Sunday morning show PoliticsNation. The Rev. Al asked Bass about a replacement for Scalia.
“I think many people would like to see an African American on the Supreme Court,” Bass said. “We don’t really need to go into Clarence Thomas’ background or his behavior on the Court, but I think to have an African-American voice that has definitely not been there since Thurgood Marshall would really be an incredible contribution to our country.”
Thurgood Marshall, who was the first Black justice on the Court, was considered one of the most liberal judges to sit on the high court.
It was a comment so shocking, so incredibly racist that even Al Sharpton had to issue a caveat after Bass’s comments.
(Let that sink in for a moment – Someone said something too racist for Al Sharpton.)
“I might note neither you or I is suggesting Clarence Thomas is not African American,” Sharpton said. “We just may [disagree] with how he has used his–”
“It’s an African American voice,” Bass said.
“That’s right, I just wanted to clarify that,” Sharpton said.
Bass was giggling through Sharpton’s “clarification” because she knows how demeaning Thomas considers it to be labeled an “Uncle Tom,” which is precisely what these two race-baiters were doing. Thomas has repeatedly said he has been mistreated more by liberals than conservatives.
“The worst I have been treated was by northern liberal elites,” he said. “The absolute worst I have ever been treated. The worst things that have been done to me, the worst things that have been said about me, by northern liberal elites, not by the people of Savannah, Georgia.”
