Awakening Anita Hill
I have not read Justice Clarence Thomas' new memoir, "My Grandfather's Son." I do not know if I will. But one thing seems clear, Justice Thomas' book has reawakened the Anita Hill controversy. Perhaps that was not a wise thing for Justice Thomas to do. Hill responds to Thomas in the NYTimes:
ON Oct. 11, 1991, I testified about my experience as an employee of Clarence Thomas’s at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
I stand by my testimony.
Justice Thomas has every right to present himself as he wishes in his new memoir, “My Grandfather’s Son.” He may even be entitled to feel abused by the confirmation process that led to his appointment to the Supreme Court.But I will not stand by silently and allow him, in his anger, to reinvent me.
Strange that Justice Thomas would repick this fight. Anita Hill has been reawakened.
