You posted a non-sequitur that had nothing to do with the subject matter other than that it was about race. Do you think that Clarence Thomas pullnig a race card thereby disqualifies him from ever opining on race in the future? Is he not qualified to state that in 2014 (20+ years after his confirmation) that people are too wrapped up in race [I]now[I]? If so, you might want to muzzle 100.00% of your heroes.

Good point Swish, we should never talk about it and just let the idiot professional race baiters set the conversational tone. That should do wonders for our society.

If we don't talk about it, there'd be no conversation about it. That tone, one where there's not a note about race, would do wonders for not only our society, but the world.

How can you not see this?

Alabama state representative Alvin Holmes is no fan of Clarence Thomas. On Tuesday, the same day Thomas told an audience he is treated worse by "northern liberal elites" than he was growing up in the segregated South, Holmes took to the statehouse floor to make disparaging comments about the Supreme Court justice's marriage to a white woman.

Via the Decatur Daily's Mary Sell and the Anniston Star's Tim Lockette:

Rep. Alvin Holmes, D-Montgomery, just said on House floor that he doesn't like Clarence Thomas because "he's married to a white woman."
- Mary Sell (@DD_MarySell) February 11, 2014


Holmes said he doesn't like Clarence Thomas because Thomas is married to a white woman. This in discussion on a bill about land surveying.
- Tim Lockette (@TLockette_Star) February 11, 2014


After leaving the floor, Holmes, who is black, tried to walk back his comments about Thomas's marriage, but maintained that the only black Supreme Court Justice is an "Uncle Tom."

Alvin Holmes told @TLockette_Star that he supports interracial marriage and statement Thomas was misinterpreted. But Thomas is "Uncle Tom."
- Mary Sell (@DD_MarySell) February 11, 2014

House is adjourned. I talked to Holmes after adjournment re: "Uncle Tom" comment.
- Tim Lockette (@TLockette_Star) February 11, 2014

Holmes: "I said I don't like him at all because he is an Uncle Tom." Says his comment about interracial marriage was misinterpreted.
- Tim Lockette (@TLockette_Star) February 11, 2014

Rep. Alvin Holmes: "I said some people might say I didn't like him because he was married to a white woman."
- Tim Lockette (@TLockette_Star) February 11, 2014

Holmes says he's for interracial marriage. Notes he introduced interracial marriage amendment years ago, supports same-sex marriage now.
- Tim Lockette (@TLockette_Star) February 11, 2014

Holmes made comment about Justice Thomas during debate about land surveying bill. Claimed Thomas was a failed surveyor before law school...
- Tim Lockette (@TLockette_Star) February 11, 2014

... and after adjournment, Holmes acknowledged that he made that up, to make sure the comments were considered on-topic.
- Tim Lockette (@TLockette_Star) February 11, 2014
very respectful.

You know my stance, my friend, to ignore their bs is to allow it to continue. I prefer to demonstrate their idiocy by throwing it back in their faces.

“My sadness is that we are probably today more race and difference-conscious than I was in the 1960s when I went to school. To my knowledge, I was the first black kid in Savannah, Georgia, to go to a white school. Rarely did the issue of race come up,” Thomas said during a chapel service hosted by the nondenominational Christian university. “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. Every person in this room has endured a slight. Every person. Somebody has said something that has hurt their feelings or did something to them — left them out.

“That’s a part of the deal,” he added.
Yes, it never came up. Birmingham, AL in 1957:

Maybe I missed something but Thomas spoke of his white school in Georgia and you post a picture taken in Birmingham, AL. How do they relate?
