On Friday’s “Actual Time” present on HBO, host Invoice Maher stated many Republicans “would like to not have black seats” on the Supreme Courtroom and likewise criticized the president of the time, George HW Bush, for appointing Choose Clarence Thomas to the “black seat”. to the Supreme Courtroom to exchange Justice Thurgood Marshall, though Thomas doesn’t “symbolize nearly all of black thought in America.”
Maher stated: “We have now the primary black girl, let’s return, for a number of the individuals who don’t keep in mind that too… we solely had two, Thurgood Marshall, 1967. When he died, that was George Bush…was president, and they also accepted the concept there was now a black seat within the subject and that’s how we received Clarence Thomas. Now, I assumed it wasn’t precisely cricket to present the black seat to somebody who didn’t symbolize nearly all of black thought in America. However right here’s the distinction, at the least they accepted, George Bush did, the concept of at the least one black seat within the subject, proper? I don’t suppose at present’s Republicans would try this. I feel they might be comfortable to not have black seats within the subject…a number of them.
