I have yet to receive my copy of this book but from what I can tell it was written by one of the greatest men in American history. Clarence Thomas has made the rounds on some talks shows over the last week and I think I have a pretty decent grasp on what his story is about.
Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas grew up extremely poor. He had a single mother and frequently had to fend for himself because no one was around to watch after him. Then his grandfather came into his life.
His grandfather was a tough as nails man who required the most from his grandson. He worked Clarence hard and always required that the young man work hard and do the best he could. Mr. Thomas acquired his inner compass from his grandfather, this I’m sure of.
And thank God for this man’s stubbornness. After Clarence left the seminary his grandfather kicked him out of the house because Clarence was going back on his word. This left the one-day Supreme Court Justice on his own.
Mr. Thomas goes on to have a distinguished career speaking out on the ills of the black community and as a distinguished judge. His exemplary career led to his nomination to the Supreme Court where he would be politically lynched by senatorial jackals and their liberal overlords. Anita Hill and the whole disgusting show luckily ended with one of the greatest men in our nation’s history becoming a Supreme Court Justice.
Many great things can be learned from this man but I think that the most important thing is that even though he had so many obstacles put in front of him all throughout his life he never succumbed to the pressure and became a victim. Even though there are still a bunch of racist pigs who want his failure because he’s black or, even worse, because he’s a conservative black he never let that get to him. His success or failure was because of his doing.
He is his own man and I think that was because his grandfather was the way he was. The message of personal responsibility is palpable in everything that he does and says. Everyone is going to face some resistance in their lives. Clarence Thomas has been faced with enough resistance for a dozen lifetimes and has come out of it battered and bruised but he is his own man. God bless him. BigT
