The Washington Post’s “The Root” blog posted a piece on “Black Folks We’d Like to Remove From Black History.” The list lumps noted mass murderers Idi Amin, Robert Mugabe and John Allen Muhammad along with Clarence Thomas, Alan Keyes and Michael Steele. They forgot about Condi.

From The Root: Clarence Thomas
Although he’s only the second man of color to serve in the Supreme Court, the Backstreet Boys have more standing in the black community than Clarence Thomas. That’s because he looks to the Constitution as “colorblind,” says he’s a man who just happens to be black and opposes government programs intended to help minorities. I’m not sure if the late Thurgood Marshall would want to pop Clarence ‘side his head with his gavel, but there are plenty of blacks who would volunteer to do it for him.
The fact that Thomas views the Constitution as “colorblind” is very upsetting to these Constitutionally-illiterate racists.
It should come as no surprise that this venomous ‘The Root” is the brainchild of Post Chairman Donald Graham and Harvard University professor and Obama pal Henry Louis Gates Jr.
The National Center for Public Policy Research, a black conservative group, is not too happy about this racist hit piece.
