What About Clarence?  

Friday, February 09, 2007

So I'm out and about the school today checking out the "Black History Month" (I hate this sorry-ass excuse for an "educational celebration") - checking out all the prominent black Americans that were honored on the various displays ...

Dr. King - check.
Kweisi Mfume - check.
Barack the Schlock - check.
Johnnie Cochran - check.
Judith Jameson - check.
Booker T. Washington - check.
Ron Karenga - check.
Frederick Douglass - check.
Romare Bearden - check.
The Tuskegee Airmen - check.
Mae Jamison - check.
Jackie Robinson - check.
Garrett Augustus Morgan - check.
Benjamin Banneker - check.
Mary McLeod Bethure - check.
Zora Neale Hurston - check.
Condoleezza Rice - check.

and a montage that included a small picture of Colin Powell.

Oh and I almost missed the Condi one due to its being so small.

All these names, and the most successful and powerful black American in history, Justice Clarence Thomas, is somehow left out.

OK. We have room in our school hallways to honor socialist assholes like Kweisi Mfume, Barack Obama, and Ron Karenga, but Condi and Colin get relegated to small mentions on small displays, and a real constitutionalist like Clarence Thomas gets left out altogether?

Methinks we have a liberal bias going on here. What else is new?
