National Museum of African-American History and Culture Highlights Anita Hill; Ignores Clarence Thomas

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Clarence Thomas has been a Supreme Court Justice for a little over 25 years. He’s a stalwart conservative jurist. Some experts have argued despite his conservative bonafides, Thomas writes well reasoned opinions and is well educated and knowledgable on the issues.

That Thomas is conservative, is repulsive to many people – ie, liberals. Why? For one major reason: Thomas is a black. And to be black and to be conservative as Thomas is akin to having some kind of mental disorder.

Regardless of what people think, Thomas’s place in history for African-Americans in the United States is important. He’s only the second African-American Supreme Court justice outside of Thurgood Marshall.

So what does the Smithsonian do? Raffi Williams explains:

Not only did they ignore Thomas, they paid more tribute to Clarence Thomas’s sexual harassment accuser, Anita Hill. 

Inside, the museum showcases the history of African Americans in the United States, covering the slave trade, the Civil Rights movement and even the first black athlete to win an individual gold medal at the winter Olympics (speedskater Shani Davis, 2006 in Turin, Italy).

Hill, the woman who accused Thomas of sexual harassment at his 1991 Senate confirmation hearings, gets plenty of attention. She is featured in the museum’s vignette to blacks in the 1990s and has her photo prominently shown along with multiple quotes about her.

Thomas disputed Hill’s allegations and won confirmation, but his side of the story is mostly ignored in the exhibits. Museum officials acknowledged that Thomas has “very little presence” in any of the exhibitions.

Shouldn’t somebody do something about that? This is disgraceful.
