  • Racist Takei Doubles Down: I Meant Clarence Thomas Is A ‘Black Buffoon’

    George Takei doubled down on his racist comments attacking Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas Friday.

    Takei referred to Thomas, who was one of the 4 justices to dissent legalizing same sex marriage nationwide, as a “clown in blackface” in a local television interview Tuesday night.

    Takei followed up in a in a Facebook post Friday: Calling Thomas a clown in blackface, “that is not racist,” he clarified and said he instead meant that Thomas is a “black buffoon” and a traitor to his race:

    A few fans have written wondering whether I intended to utter a racist remark by referring to Justice Thomas as a “clown in blackface.”

    “Blackface” is a lesser known theatrical term for a white actor who blackens his face to play a black buffoon. In traditional theater lingo, and in my view and intent, that is not racist. It is instead part of a racist history in this country.

    I feel Justice Thomas has abdicated and abandoned his African American heritage by claiming slavery did not strip dignity from human beings. He made a similar remark about the Japanese American internment, of which I am a survivor. A sitting Justice of the Supreme Court ought to know better.

    Takei can say horribly racist things about Clarence Thomas without reprisal, because he is a gay leftist.
