Clarence Thomas Dishes Brilliance On "Intellectual Stereotyping"

Justice Thomas was interviewed by David Rubenstein, a financier and philanthropist, in the Supreme Court’s courtroom as part of a series of lectures sponsored by the Supreme Court Historical Society.

He said about his rumored retirement, “I have no idea where this stuff comes from.”

During the interview he expressed frustration with what he said was intellectual stereotyping.He said people who will get very upset if someone said all blacks look alike are really comfortable saying all blacks ought to think alike.If you said that blacks should not be allowed to go a library, you’d be against that.If you said that blacks couldn’t read certain books in the library, you would say that’s wrong.But now we are so comfortable saying that blacks can’t hold some of the ideas in some of the books in the library.That’s absurd.”
