Brown v. The Board of Education… Need I say more? Thurgood was a Supreme Court justice in the highest court of the land. Dedicated to justice, equality, fairness and freedom for all.
“None of us got where we are solely by pulling ourselves up by our bootstraps. We got here because somebody – a parent, a teacher, an Ivy League crony or a few nuns – bent down and helped us pick up our boots.”
Really? You’re an elected official who comes from an under-represented background and it never crosses your mind that dressing up in black face, a fake afro and a basketball jersey might be offensive?! The half-ass apology was a joke! Especially from someone who on numerous occasions has asked for equality and justice when his own race is offended.
I hope that others will learn from his mistakes and he will serve as an example for people to think before they do stupid stuff like this. One can only hope.
