Diversity At Its Merit-Based Best

Asian American John Yoo praises the work of African-American Clarence Thomas.

Money Q:

As his memoir shows, Justice Thomas's views were forged in the crucible of a truly authentic American story. This is a black man with a much greater range of personal experience than most of the upper-class liberals who take potshots at him. A man like this on the court is the very definition of the healthy diversity his detractors pretend to support.

In his dissent from the court's approval of the use of race in law-school admissions, he quoted Frederick Douglass: "If the negro cannot stand on his own legs, let him fall also. All I ask is, give him a chance to stand on his own legs! Let him alone!" Justice Thomas observed: "Like Douglass, I believe blacks can achieve in every avenue of American life without the meddling of university administrators."

Killer quotes! …but the Libs won’t listen. They refuse to so much as consider that their preconceived notions about such things are dated and wrong, even when faced with scientific evidence that their coerced diversity is actually harmful to the very people they are trying to help. A truly close-minded bunch Libs are. So much for progress from the “progressives”. Why anyone listens to them or grants them positions of power over others is beyond me.

This should be the modern civil rights call. But it never will be so long as we permit the bitter racial leveragists and extortionists, along with their guilt-ridden Liberal friends, to control the conversation.

Douglass was a decent guy. He deserves more and better press than the Jacksons, Sharptons, Farrakans, even MLK.

The libs can't stand a black man who makes it. Look at Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson, the 2 biggest race hustlers out there.
