Democratic strategist calls Clarence Thomas 'an enemy to Black people'

Democratic strategist Ameshia Cross has authored an opinion piece in which she described Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas as "an enemy to Black people."

Thomas, who was nominated by President George H.W. Bush, has served on the high court for more than three decades and is highly respected by many Americans.

"He fights against the working class and minorities, finding unique ways to fight against the Black community he hails from in the process. It's why Black Americans shouldn't celebrate Justice Thomas during Black History Month. He simply doesn't deserve it," Cross claimed.

Cross has accused Thomas of "aiding and abetting white supremacy while cloaked in a judicial robe" and "fighting to keep people who look like him from the polls."

"The Black community doesn't celebrate Thomas because Thomas does everything in his power to make life worse for us," she claimed. "Black History Month isn't a time to glorify a threat to Black progress. Clarence Thomas has proven himself time and time again to be an enemy to Black people. Who needs white supremacists when a Black man who benefited from civil rights wins is leading the charge to destroy the very policies that made his career possible?" she wrote.

Blaze contributor Delano Squires rejected the notion, tweeting, "Clarence Thomas is only an 'enemy of black people' to those who engage in Potemkin black pride rhetoric that hides deep insecurities behind demands for affirmation from the broader culture. Agency & dignity sound like self-hatred to people nursed on paternalism & condescension."
