Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas confirms he is a victim of racial preferences.
Thomas has been a sharp critic of affirmative action and the use of racial classifications in schools, but he acknowledges in the book that he was admitted to Yale Law School in 1971 partly because he was black. “I’d graduated from one of America’s top law schools — but racial preference had robbed my achievement of its true value.”
Um, O.K. Maybe Bush’s son can nominate you to be the Second Coming. Would that be enough reparation for robbing you of your achievement?
