So the Missus decided to leave a message on Anita Hill’s work number claiming it was an olive branch but where she’s playing a school yard-level game of “Stay Away From My Man”. To Professor Hill’s credit she has rebuffed the press dragging her into any unnecessary drama.
Considering the Senate Confirmation hearings were nearly two decades ago it really makes no sense to re-ring the bell. Clearly this is election-based fodder since the fair Ginni Thomas is employed by “private” donors supporting the ultra-conservative patently ignorant Tea Party wing of the Republican Party.
Aside from one of their rising stars Christine O’Donnell’s “confusion” about what’s in the Constitution and the tenets of the First Amendment this latest canon fodder is yet another sign of the pending Apocalypse! Or…another attempt at obstructionism and obfuscation.
Clarence Thomas has systematically tried to upend every legal gain African-Americans have fought for since the 1960’s. I was too young to understand what was at stake during his Senate Confirmation hearings but I see the negative impact now. He is a black racist and black woman hater who was given a pass by those who could least afford to give a “brotha” the benefit of the doubt.
Just like the OJ Simpson trial (aside from his great defense team) far too many blacks were thinking about historical wrongs enacted by racist whites when bypassing the obvious pathology of an individual black male who had already made it clear they held other blacks, especially black women in contempt. The damage inflicted by those given a pass cannot be repaired.
Anita Hill was dragged through the mud and called every name in the book when she bravely stepped forward to discuss Thomas’ foul behavior. Some males in power abuse it and the harrowing detail she gave of his behavior exemplifies it. There’s an I Still Believe Anita Hill Facebook Page where others have gathered in response to this outlandish attack.
Some women are so enamored with the no value and DBR men they want to hold onto and so callous of others they will support that male’s treachery. Since the Missus benefits from his status she’s invested in retaining it. Women who betray other women are the worst!
In case you’d like to share your thoughts with Virginia Thomas you too can call her at work to facilitate the healing process she claims to want.
