Justice Thomas: Too Much Race Talk

Stop being so racially sensitive, America. The second black justice ever to serve on the Supreme Court thinks America is a bit too touchy on the issue of race. Justice Clarence Thomas told an audience of Florida college students that "we are probably today more race and difference-conscious than I was in the 1960s when I went to school." Thomas, who grew up in segregated Georgia, lamented: “Now, name a day it doesn’t come up. Differences in race, differences in sex, somebody doesn’t look at you right, somebody says something. Everybody is sensitive. If I had been as sensitive as that in the 1960s, I’d still be in Savannah."
