Ted Cruz Says Clarence Thomas Should Be In NMAAHC
Did the National Museum Of African-American History And Culture in D.C. make a major “mistake” by not including Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas?
“As much as I am grateful for the museum and its efforts to preserve and promote the indispensable, yet oft-neglected, contributions of African Americans to the collective history of our nation, I believe the museum has made a mistake by omitting the enormous legacy and impact of Justice Thomas, as well as his compelling background,” the Texas Republican wrote Monday to the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington.
To be clear, I am not petitioning for a partisan hagiography of Justice Thomas, nor am I asking that everything critical of him be excluded. I am simply requesting that a fair and accurate portrayal of his powerful story be included, for the great benefit of millions of future museum-goers,” Cruz wrote.
Technically, Thomas is included in the museum because he’s mention in a gallery called “A Changing America: 1968 and Beyond.”
Do you think shady azz Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas should have been given a bigger spotlight in the new African-American museum?
