Hillary Clinton uses ‘angry black man’ trope against Clarence Thomas [VIDEO]

The Post Millennial

Hillary Clinton lashed out at Justice Clarence Thomas, claiming that he has always been filled with “resentment, grievance,” and “anger.”
Her comments were contradictory to those made by Justice Sonia Sotomayor, who sang nothing but praise for her Supreme Court colleague.
On Tuesday, former Secretary of State and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton sat down with CBS Mornings’ Gayle King to discuss Friday’s Supreme Court ruling to overturn Roe v. Wade.
“Justice Thomas has sort of floated that out there about contraceptive rights, contraception, and about same-sex marriages,” King said, “but other justices have pushed back to say no, he’s really sort of on his own with that. Do you believe that?”

“Well, he may be on his own, but he’s signalling as he often did,” Clinton replied.

“I went to law school with him,” she continued. “He’s been a person of grievance for as long as I’ve known him; resentment, grievance, anger. And he has signalled in the past … [he] may not win the first, the second, or the third time, but we’re gonna keep at it.”

Clinton went on to suggest that people ought to pay attention to Thomas’ actions because of his tendency to jive with the “right-wing, very conservative judges and justices, and state legislatures.”

“Women are going to die, Gayle,” Clinton concluded.

Clinton’s comments, which border on painting Thomas as just an “angry black man,” are a far cry from the words Justice Sotomayor used to describe her colleague.
