Washington, DC, was abuzz with the opening of the new National Museum of African American History and Culture in September. Both Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama attended the opening, and Bush was a keynote speaker due to his instrumental role in getting the museum started. The media fawned over the hug Michelle Obama gave to Bush — the “embrace seen around the world,” as The New York Times called it. But the bipartisanship appears to have been a phony veneer.
There’s a glaring and outrageous omission from the museum’s displays: Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. To add insult to injury, an exhibit on blacks in the 1990s includes prominent placement for Anita Hill, who accused Thomas of sexual harassment and was a key pawn in Democrats' shameful “high-tech lynching” of Thomas during his confirmation hearings.
His omission from the museum was a deliberate decision based upon the abhorrent leftist narrative that blacks who aren’t Democrat really aren’t authentically black.
