- Wash Post: Supreme Discomfort — More than a decade after his bitter confirmation battle, African Americans are still judging Clarence Thomas guilty. Is that justice? — A fascinating story about Thomas. I like the story because it fleshes him out, makes him a real person. Reading about him brings about many of the emotions I have of the President. I can’t help but like him as a person, but yet can’t fathom some of his actions.
I guess that is one lesson that I keep learning and relearning, to not dehumanize your enemy. This is so hard in politics, especially in this era, but it is a lesson we all need to return to.
Whether you’re a fan of Thomas or not, you should read the story. I think you’ll understand him a little better if you do.
