Can you imagine if a conservative news source called a black man an ‘It?’ If that’s not racist, it’s definitely VERY disrespectful. There would be HELL to pay if conservatives called a black liberal an ‘it’. Let these darlings know how you feel here: @MailOnline
Here was the story they reported:
Justice Clarence Thomas stunned lawyers, reporters and others at the Supreme Court on Monday when he posed questions during an oral argument for the first time in 10 years.
It was the second week the court has heard arguments since the death of Justice Antonin Scalia, Thomas’ friend and fellow conservative.
Thomas for years sat directly to Scalia’s right. Scalia’s chair is now draped in black in a tribute to his death on February 13.
His questions came in case in which the court is considering placing new limits on the reach of a federal law that bans people convicted of domestic violence from owning guns.
With about 10 minutes left in the hour-long session, Justice Department lawyer Ilana Eisenstein was about to sit down after answering a barrage of questions from other justices.
Thomas then caught her by surprise, asking whether the violation of any other law ‘suspends a constitutional right.’
Thomas’s unusual silence over the years has become a curiosity over the years. Thomas has previously said he relies on the written briefs and doesn’t need to ask questions of the lawyers appearing in court.
