Mrs. Clarence Thomas Pulls “Mean Girl” Antics Against Anita Hill

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.

  • A LOT of Black people (many of whom are still in leadership positions) owe the AA collective an explanation and an apology over their aggressive support of Clarence "Lawn Jockey" Thomas.

    Unfoturnely, very few of us hold our (mis)leadership class accountable for the bad advice they've given us. All the prominent Blacks who supported Clarence Thomas need to explain their error in judgment. And explain why we should listen to any new advice they want to give.

    This includes Min. Farrakhan, who assured the rest of us that Clarence Thomas "was just fooling Whites," and that "he would be a good brother" once he got onto the Supreme Court.

    I had many arguments with other Black folks during Thomas' confirmation hearings.

    I miss Emerge magazine:

    Sorry I meant Desiree Washington

  • ak

    Heck yeah! I believed Anita Hill and I always did from the time I was back in school. It seems as if I was the only black girl/woman who did back then! LOL LOL Everybody else was like 'Oh she tryin to bring a brotha down'! I was ashamed that the only women to stick up for her were some feminists from NOW and the like. ALL the stupid BW were on Clarence's side it seemed like.

    I also always did and still believe Desiree Washing too, regarding Mike Tyson.

  • LMH

    We know who needs to apologize and it certainly isn't Ms. Hill!

    Thank you Faith, I just discovered your blog about 2 weeks ago, you are always thought provoking, keep up the good work.

  • I was just talking to my friend about this yesterday. First thing I said was, "She did this for attention and because she hasn't moved on. She feels entitled and she wants this BW to apologize for making her (and her hubby) look like a fool nearly 20 years ago." It's so transparent, I don't know if I should be glad that Ginni made her antic so apparent or offended that she didn't think that most people would be able to see right through her actions.

    Anita Hill has been remarkably silent-which I think is the perfect move. Let Ginni keep talking: it makes her look like a fool all day long-she's used to it (being a supporter of the Tea Party and all.) I also was too young to understand what was going on with Clarence Thomas's Senate confirmation, but I do know that my mother always believed Anita Hill. She told me, "This woman isn't lying. I believe her. Men in power believe they can do anything they want. And this one has a white wife-he thinks he's above and beyond." My mother grew up in a house with 4 boys and my grandmother has a male preference. So, my mother is the opposite: she believed women should stick together, and that's the message she passed on to me.

    Back on topic: I got a copy of the Express (local DC periodical) and in the article about Ginni and Anita, it managed to bring up a woman who DOES NOT betray other woman. It's Lillian McEwen, who dated Clarence Thomas for several years (1979-mid 1980s.) Ms. McEwen said that Hill's accusations "resonated with her" and "The Clarence I know was certainly capable not only of doing the things that Anita Hill said he did, but it would be totally consistent with the way he lived his personal life then." Oh yeah, McEwen said she wasn't surprised by Ginni's message LOL

  • Since I can't cuss, I'm just going to say that Ms. Virginia is a plantation pimp married to a …let me shut my mouth. I love you too much, Faith, to lose my salvation over that operative Virginia on your blog. You're right on target.

  • "Women who betray other women are the worst!"

    Oh my goodness, YES.

    This blog entry is spot on. Gonna join that Anita Hill Facebook page too.
