Usually, white progressives are pretty adept at hiding their racial bigotry. But there is just something about Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas that unlocks their inner Bull Connor and compels them to expose their racism. This has become even more apparent after the Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade.
Pro-abortion supporters, most of whom are white, have been rather bold in hurling racial epithets at Thomas, who wrote a concurrence to the majority opinion written by Justice Samuel Alito in the court’s ruling. Many used the “N-word” with impunity. Here are some examples:
What is even more interesting about this is that Twitter has not yet bothered to censor any of these blatantly racist postings. We already know what would happen if a bunch of white conservatives posted tweets with racial slurs against someone like Stacey Abrams, right? They would not only be deleted but those posting the epithets would likely be permanently banned.
Nevertheless, this just further illustrates that those on the far-left who claim to be champions for racial minorities and warriors fighting against racism tend to have more in common with David Duke than they would care to admit. Indeed, if you doubt this, just look at some of race grifter Robin DiAngelo’s work.
This story also reminds me of Malcolm X’s comments on racism among white liberals and conservatives. He criticized both, but noted that “the white liberals are more dangerous than the conservatives; they lure the Negro, and as the Negro runs from the growling wolf, he flees into the open jaws of the ‘smiling fox.’”
In one of his speeches, he said:
“The white liberal differs from the white conservative in one way. The liberal is more deceitful and hypocritical than the conservatives. Both want power. But, the white liberal has perfected the art of posing as the negro’s (sic) friend and benefactor.”
After the hoopla over Thomas has subsided, these progressive types will return to their fox-like ways, thinly concealing their beliefs about black inferiority requiring their white savior mentality to swoop in and save black folks. While they may not make it a habit of calling us the “n-word” publicly, they will never stop treating us as such – especially when we do not agree with what they believe is best for us.
