Cast Joe Biden; Although Clarence Thomas remains a controversial figure, loved by some, reviled by others, few know much more than a few headlines and the recollections of his contentious confirmation battle with Anita Hill. Yet, the personal odyssey of Clarence Thomas is a classic American story and should be better known and understood. His life began in extreme poverty in the segregated South, and moved to the height of the legal profession, as one of the most influential justices on the Supreme Court. Created Equal: Clarence Thomas in His Own Words tells the Clarence Thomas story truly and fully, without cover-ups or distortions. The documentary will open in movie theaters nationally on January 31, 2020, followed by a national broadcast on PBS in May 2020. Educational use is forthcoming; Scores 39 votes; Directed by Michael Pack; USA; Michael Pack.
Uncle Tom. Starts at 18:00. What he went through was disgrace. Typical left trying to destroy innocent people because they dont like them.

Evil drips from the so called man. I wonder if Kavanaugh gifted him a calendar yet.
It's ok to like Kanye and Clarence Thomas. Created Equal: Clarence Thomas In His Own Words ~ The Imaginative Conservative Skip to content One of the best contemporary memoirs I’ve read in the last decade is My Grandfather’s Son, which was published in 2007. In his tale that ended with the fierce 1991 confirmation battle for his seat on the U. S. Supreme Court, Clarence Thomas told a remarkable story of his journey from being raised by a single mother in Jim Crow-era Georgia poverty to taking a place at the top of the nation’s judicial branch. It’s a fascinating and truly all-American story of an important figure on the Court. The necessity of saying that he is important is truly a sad fact. Despite the popular but racist liberal slurs (sometimes said, sometimes illustrated in cartoons) about how Justice Thomas was simply a “sock-puppet, ” “lawn jockey, ” or shoeshine boy for the late Justice Antonin Scalia, those who follow legal and political philosophy know that Justice Thomas, though voting with Justice Scalia quite often, has a somewhat different judicial philosophy. His originalism differs in several ways from Scalia’s (which interested readers can explore in detail in book-length works by Ralph Rossum and Paul Scott Gerber), but the most important is that Justice Thomas takes into account not merely the texts of the Constitution and laws at hand, as did Justice Scalia the textualist. Justice Thomas’s jurisprudence is based on taking seriously the natural law principles in the Founding, most prominently the political equality enshrined in the Declaration of Independence. Hence the title of Michael Pack’s excellent new documentary on Justice Thomas being shown in select theaters across the country: Created Equal: Clarence Thomas In His Own Words. [*] In addition to being a producer and director of thirteen documentaries, Mr. Pack is a former president of the Claremont Institute, whose conservatism takes its starting point and its focus from the American Founding. It is therefore not surprising that the film connects Justice Thomas’s roots in a time and place when black Americans were denied the dignity of equal treatment under the law with his eventual embrace of a natural rights and natural law philosophy that he adopted in part through the influence of John Marini and Ken Masugi. Both worked for Justice Thomas in the eighties and are now senior fellows at the Claremont Institute. During most cuts in the film, an image of the Declaration’s lines about all men being created equal runs across the screen. To Mr. Pack’s credit, however, the movie never descends into a con law lecture. It’s an opportunity to hear the story of an amazing but winding journey from the standpoint of Justice Thomas and, to a lesser extent, his wife Virginia. Mr. Pack recorded thirty hours of interviews, including some recordings of Justice Thomas reading the most beautiful passages from his memoir. Laced through the movie are scenes of a small boat seen from above navigating the maze-like wetlands around Pin Point, Georgia, the site of the Justice’s earliest memories. The movie’s original score by Charlie Barnett is beautiful and often plaintive. With his brother and their somewhat erratic mother, Justice Thomas spent his first few years in Pin Point, where the poverty experienced by his Gullah family and neighbors was livable and off-set by the tight-knit community. His father abandoned the family when he was two, and his mother was able to survive for a while on hard work. When she moved Clarence and his brother to Savannah after a fire destroyed their home, they found the urban poverty much more unbearable. Justice Thomas recalls the sewage from tenement toilets being flushed out into the yards. Archival photos of the city show the boards that denizens would position from the street to their porches to avoid walking through the waste. When young Clarence was seven, his mother asked her own parents, Myers and Christine Anderson, to take in her two young boys. While Christine was a comforting figure, Myers was nearly illiterate, but a fiercely independent thinker whose memorization of swaths of the Bible had led him to be a Republican and also convert to Catholicism in the late 1940s. This unbending disciplinarian believed that the curse of the fall relating to working by the sweat of one’s brow was best embraced as a reality. He greeted the boys with a warning: “The damn vacation is over. ” It was not an act. The young boys were required to help out their grandfather on the truck he used to sell fuel oil and ice every day after they came back from the segregated parochial school they attended. In the summers, Anderson had them working all day on a small farm property he possessed. Justice Thomas recalls with relish the reply to the boys’ occasional pleas that they were unable to do a job: “Old man can’t is dead; I helped bury him. ” An excellent student and one who took the faith seriously, Justice Thomas asked to enter St. John Vianney Minor Seminary in the middle of high school. His grandfather told him that he could do this, but he couldn’t quit seminary. Justice Thomas loved the liturgy (he mentions his love of Lauds, Vespers, and Gregorian chant especially) and he excelled in his studies?an image from his yearbook reveals the legend below his picture: “Blew the test! Only a 98”?but found it difficult to be the only black student at the seminary. He is grateful now for the suggestion by one teacher that he learn standard English?his speech at the time was, he says, a mixture of the Gullah dialect and southern English?but it was somewhat alienating. After passing on to Conception Seminary College in Missouri, the disconnect became unbearable as the Civil Rights movement marched on and Catholic bishops were nearly uniformly silent. The breaking point came when he entered his dormitory on April 4, 1968, only to hear a fellow seminarian respond to Martin Luther King, Jr. ’s shooting, “Good. I hope the son of a b? dies! ” Justice Thomas left the seminary at this point, which prompted his grandfather to say that he would have to live on his own now since he was making “a man’s decision. ” After briefly moving back in with his mother, Justice Thomas was accepted to Holy Cross College in Worcester, Massachusetts for the fall. Stinging from the betrayal of the Church and his grandfather, Justice Thomas embraced the view that race “explained everything” and formed a radical left-wing substitute for the religion he’d left behind. After two years of radicalism, Justice Thomas participated in a riot in Boston whose violence rattled him. Returning to Holy Cross in the wee hours of the morning, he entered the chapel and prayed for the first time since he’d matriculated. At that point, though still embracing progressivist views, he started to live out some bourgeois values. He married a fellow student at the end of college and continued on to Yale Law, where he started to shift to what he calls a “lazy libertarian” viewpoint. His main concern was his own autonomy. Upon graduation he went to work for the Republican attorney general of Missouri, an Episcopal priest named John Danforth. This work started to break down some of his recently-formed views about white racism as the main problem for blacks. His discovery that black victims of crime overwhelmingly suffered at the hands of black criminals shook his race-based worldview. After a stint in the business world, Justice Thomas came to Washington to work for his old boss, now a senator. His views of the world were slowly moving back to the ones instilled in him by his grandfather, especially as he discovered black intellectuals such as Thomas Sowell who didn’t toe the left-wing line. A young Juan Williams outed him as a conservative in a column that expressed the commonplace view that blacks with views like his are somehow incomprehensible traitors or suck-ups to the white power structure. At the same time, the grind of the Washington world helped lead to the breakdown of his first marriage, a subject on which Justice Thomas is noticeably much more reticent than other topics. This is natural, and like the other emotions that are visible on his face, they lend humanity to a man who has too often been caricatured. His mother’s comment about him that he was “too stubborn to cry” may be true, but the moist eyes and the movements of this great man when remembering his grandfather or raising his son, Jamal, or the difficult times in public life, led to a number of sniffles in the theater I was in. Justice Thomas is also visibly moved when he describes his second wife, Virginia, as a gift from God he could not refuse. His time in the Reagan administration chairing the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission led to an appointment in the federal judiciary. Though enlivened by his discussions with Masugi and Marini about the Constitution, he initially resisted an appointment to the bench because he thought that being a judge was something for old people. Convinced that he could resign, he embraced the work and found that he liked it. In 1991, President George H. W. Bush nominated him for the Supreme Court, bringing out the long knives of the abortion industry and the left. Archival footage shows us feminists declaring flatly that they will “bork” this man. Virginia Thomas speaks for this viewer in holding a special anger at the absurd prospect of Teddy Kennedy sitting in judgment over claims of “sexual harassment” by Anita Hill. The footage of Senate Judiciary Chair Joe Biden is yet more evidence of the oily confidence without merit he has always demonstrated. Senator Orrin Hatch asks the questions about how it is that a woman who was harassed would not only follow her harasser from one job to the next but then continue to contact him a dozen times over the years after their
Biden has more hair today than he had back then. Those hair plugs really work. Of course, the media never mocked Biden for his hair. It's sad that Thomas was selected to be on the highest court in the land instead of so many others who could have made a significant impact in terms expanding rights for a greater number of Americans or immigrants.
I believe Anita. Some things never change.
Very discriminatory! Male dominated society. ? Ive experienced it first hand many times. Sucks.

Sell out. February 8, 2020 1:31PM PT The Supreme Court justice offers a monologue of self-justification in a talking-head memoir that's revealing even when it doesn't want to be. If you watch “Created Equal: Clarence Thomas in His Own Words” looking for a clue as to Thomas’ inner workings, a key to who Clarence Thomas really is, then you’ll have to wait a while before it arrives. But it does. The reason it takes so long is that Thomas, dressed in a red tie, light shirt, and blue jacket (yes, his entire outfit is color-coordinated to the American flag), his graying head looking impressive and nearly statue-ready as he gazes into the camera, presents himself as a regular guy, affably growly and folksy in a casual straight-shooter way. And while I have no doubt that’s an honest aspect of who he is, it’s also a shrewdly orchestrated tactic, a way of saying: Don’t try to look for my demons ? you won’t find them. The revealing moment comes when Thomas recalls the 1991 Senate hearings in which he was grilled on national television as part of the Supreme Court confirmation process. Does he go back and talk about Anita Hill? Yes, he does (I’ll get to that shortly), but?that isn’t the revealing part. Discussing Anita Hill, Thomas reveals next to nothing. His métier now is exactly what it was then: Deny, deny, deny. Thomas tips his hand, though, when he recalls the moment that a senator asked if he’d ever had a private conversation about Roe v. Wade. At the time, he said no ? and now, 30 years later, that “no” has just gotten louder. In hindsight, he’s incredulous that anyone would simply presume that he’d ever had a private discussion about Roe v. He’s almost proud of how wrong they were to think so. In a Senate hearing, when you say that you’ve never had that kind of conversation, it’s in all likelihood political ? a way, in this case, of keeping your beliefs about abortion ambiguous and close to the vest. A way of keeping them officially off the table. In “Created Equal, ” however, Thomas is being sincere. He has always maintained that he finds it insulting ? and racist ? that people would expect an African-American citizen like himself to conform to a prescribed liberal ideology. And in the same vein, he thinks it’s ridiculous that a Senate questioner expected him to say that he’d ever spent two minutes sitting around talking about Roe v. Wade. But talk about an argument that backfires! I’m not a federal judge (and the last time I checked, I’ve never tried to become a Supreme Court justice), but I’ve had many conversations in my life about Roe v. Why wouldn’t I? I’m an ordinary politically inclined American. I mean, how could you not talk about it ? ever? Abortion rights, no matter where you happen to stand on them, are a defining issue of our world. And the fact that Clarence Thomas was up for the role of Supreme Court justice, and that he still views it as A-okay to say that he’d never had a single discussion about Roe v. Wade, shows you where he’s coming from. He has opinions and convictions. But he is, in a word, incurious. He’s a go-along-to-get-along kind of guy, a man who worked hard and achieved something and enjoyed a steady rise without ever being driven to explore things. He was a bureaucrat. Which is fine; plenty of people are. But not the people we expect to be on the Supreme Court. “Created Equal” is structured as a monologue of self-justification, a two-hour infomercial for the decency, the competence, and the conservative role-model aspirationalism of Clarence Thomas. Since he followed the 1991 Senate hearings, even in victory, by going off and licking his wounds, maintaining a public persona that was studiously recessive, there’s a certain interest in “hanging out” with Thomas and taking in his cultivated self-presentation. The movie, in its public-relations heart, is right-wing boilerplate (though it’s mild next to the all-in-for-Trump documentary screeds of Dinesh D’Souza), and there are worse ways to get to know someone like Thomas than to watch him deliver what is basically the visual version of an I-did-it-my-way audiobook memoir, with lots of news clips and photographs to illustrate his words. The first half of the movie draws you in, because it’s basically the story of how Thomas, born in 1948 in the rural community of Pin Point, Georgia, was raised in a penniless family who spoke the creole language of Gullah, and of how he pulled himself up by his bootstraps. After a fire left the family homeless, he and his brother went off to Savannah to live with their grandfather, an illiterate but sternly disciplined taskmaster who gave Thomas his backbone of self-reliance. He entered Conception Seminary College when he was 16, and he loved it ? but in a story Thomas has often told, he left the seminary after the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. when he overheard a fellow student make an ugly remark about King. That’s a telling anecdote, but there’s a reason Thomas showcases it the way he does. It’s his one official grand statement of racial outrage. In “Created Equal, ” he talks for two hours but says next to nothing about his feelings on the Civil Rights movement, or on what it was like to be raised in the Jim Crow South. As a student at Holy Cross, the Jesuit liberal arts college near Boston, he joined a crew of black “revolutionaries” and dressed the part in Army fatigues, but he now mocks that stage of his development, cutting right to his conservative awakening, which coalesced around the issue of busing. Thomas thought it was nuts to bus black kids from Roxbury to schools in South Boston that were every bit as bad as the ones they were already attending. And maybe he was right. Thomas, using busing and welfare as his example, decries the liberal dream as a series of idealistic engineering projects that human beings were then wedged into. There may be aspects of truth to that critique, but liberalism was also rolling up its sleeves to grapple with the agony of injustice. The philosophy that Thomas evolved had a connect-the-dots perfection to it: Treat everyone equal! Period! How easy! It certainly sounds good on paper, yet you want to ask: Couldn’t one use the same logic that rejects affirmative action programs to reject anti-discrimination law? Thomas projects out from his own example: He came from nothing and made something of himself, so why can’t everyone else? But he never stops to consider that he was, in fact, an unusually gifted man. His aw-shucks manner makes him likably unpretentious, but where’s his empathy for all the people who weren’t as talented or lucky? In “Created Equal, ” Thomas continues to treat Anita Hill’s testimony against him as part of a liberal smear campaign ? and, therefore, as a lie. He compares himself to Tom Robinson, the railroaded black man in “To Kill a Mockingbird, ” viewing himself as a pure victim. Thomas’ wife, Virginia Lamp, who sat by his side at the hearings (and is interviewed in the film), stands by him today. But more than two years into the #MeToo revolution, the meaning of the Clarence Thomas/Anita Hill Senate testimony stands clearer than ever. It was the first time in America that a public accusation of sexual harassment shook the earth. The meaning of those hearings transcends the fight over whether one more conservative justice got to be added to the Supreme Court. Thomas now admits that he refused to withdraw his nomination less out of a desire to serve on the Supreme Court than because caving in would have been death to him. “I’ve never cried uncle, ” he says, “whether I wanted to be on the Supreme Court or not. ” It’s an honest confession, but a little like the Roe v. Wade thing: Where was his intellectual and moral desire to serve on the court? By then, he’d been a federal judge for just 16 months, and he admits that he wasn’t drawn to that job either; but he found that he liked the work. Thomas also explains why, once he had ascended to the high court, he went through a period where, famously, he didn’t ask a single question at a public hearing for more than 10 years. His rationalization (“The referee in the game should not be a participant in the game”) is, more or less, nonsense. But his silence spoke volumes. It was his passive-aggressive way of turning inward, of treating an appointment he didn’t truly want with anger ? of coasting as a form of rebellion. It was his way of pretending to be his own man, even as he continued to play the hallowed conservative role of good soldier.
