In an open letter written in condemnation of the ruthless, racial attacks upon Justice Clarence Thomas, a group of Black Academics is denouncing the treatment of the Supreme Court Justice. They point out in their letter that some agree with him judicially and some do not. But all of them agree that “White Progressives” do not have the right to “excommunicate a black man”.

Leftist students recently called for George Washington Law School to fire Thomas from his teaching position after the Roe V Wade decision came late last month. Since then, an onslaught of personal attacks has continued.

Justice Thomas has had many start to speak out on his behalf, like Julius Hobson, a fellow professor who understands the importance of not “restricting academic freedom”.

Universities have long given into radical, leftist ideology but GW Law School is holding firm in refusing to remove Thomas.

The open letter was published by Real Clear Politics and signed by many prominent academics, including Glenn Loury, Professor of Economics at Brown University, and Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Research Fellow, Hoover Institution in Stanford, CA.  Below is a copy:

“White progressives do not have the moral authority to excommunicate a black man from his race because they disagree with him.

And those – regardless of background – who join in the charade or remain silent are guilty of enabling this abuse.

We, the undersigned, condemn the barrage of racist, vicious, and ugly personal attacks that we are witnessing on Clarence Thomas – a sitting Supreme Court justice. Whether it is calling him a racist slur, an “Uncle Tom” or questioning his “blackness” over his jurisprudence, the disparagement of this man, of his faith and of his character, is abominable.

Regardless of where one stands on Justice Thomas’ personal or legal opinions, he is among the pantheon of black trailblazers throughout American history and is a model of integrity, scholarship, steadfastness, resilience, and commitment to the Constitution of the United States of America. For three decades Justice Thomas has served as a model for our children. He has long been honored and celebrated by black people in this country and his attackers do not speak for the majority of blacks.

He is entirely undeserving of the vitriol directed at him. Character assassination has become too convenient a tool for eviscerating those who dare dissent from the prevailing agenda, especially when it is a black man who is dissenting.

This is not about the content of the court’s decisions or Justice Thomas’ personal views; some of the undersigned agree with his judicial decisions and some do not. We speak out – as black people and Americans – to condemn these attacks and support Justice Thomas, because to remain silent would be to implicitly endorse these poisonous schemes as well as his destruction.”
