Poor, poor Clarence Thomas

My favorite member of the Supreme Court has been whining ever since his book was released recently. His latest rant is about his Yale Law Degree's lack of value.
U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas has a 15-cent price tag stuck to his Yale law degree, blaming the school's affirmative action policies in the 1970s for his difficulty finding a job after he graduated.
Thomas thinks that Black peopls should stop acting like "victims." He sure sounds like a victim to me here.
I'd graduated from one of America's top law schools, but racial preference had robbed my achievement of its true value.
This is stupid. "Racial preference" does not make dumb people smart; it gives all smart people a chance. Maybe there are professors that think of [the demon that is] Affirmative Action when handing out grades on mid-terms. I've never seen nor heard of one, and I had more than a fair chance of running into a few during my time at the University of Michigan from 2000 to 2005 (when our Affirmative Action policies were argued in front of the Supreme Court).
This crop of Republicans sure does whine a lot.
One Love. One II.
