The 60 Minutes Clarence Thomas piece was interesting. The video links can be downloaded via the following:
I don't know how radical ClarenceThomas was, amidst his own claims, but this really shows the systemic process by which the instruments of white socio-political power can corrupt and break a black man. This is truly the making of a monster.
This brother is a Tom of the highest order but rest assured, his "high tech lynching" speech at the judicial hearing for the Anita Hill accusations was pure genius. He spit fire at those crackers. You can see them white folks gasping for air.
"This is a circus. It’s a national disgrace," he said during the hearing. "It is a high-tech lynching for uppity blacks who in any way deign to think for themselves and it is a message that unless you kowtow to an old order you will be lynched, destroyed, caricatured by a committee of the U.S. Senate rather than hung from a tree."
"Why did you use that language? Why a high tech lynching?" Kroft asks.
"If someone just wantonly tries to destroy you, if somebody comes in and drags you out of your house and beats the hell out of you. What is it?" the justice replies.
