WASHINGTON (AP) — Justice Clarence Thomas did something at a Supreme Court argument Monday for the first time in nearly seven years — he spoke.
But what Thomas said is not clear, other than he appears to have joked about Ivy League lawyers.
The argument transcript only records a few words. It quotes Thomas as saying, “Well, he did not…” Several justices laughed in response.
Louisiana lawyer Carla Sigler replied: “I would refute that, Justice Thomas.”
Two lawyers in the courtroom said Thomas was joking about Ivy League law school graduates, although one said it was at the expense of Thomas’ alma mater, Yale, and the other said rival Harvard was the butt of the joke.


Thomas hasn’t asked a question in court since February 22, 2006.

Clarence has to be the biggest disappointment ever to be a black man in a strategic position, smh... This is absolutely ridiculous and shameful.

This is exactly why Bush I choose him. It was a direct "Im gonna fix you *******, HA HA in your face" to Thurgood Marshall, the exact opposite of this Clarence Thomas man of Negro extraction...

Hi! I'm not as active on this account as I want to be. For one I tend to forget that this site exists until I check my email. Two, I'm currently in the process of building up a fine art site for Oklahoma black and native historical references. The references correlate with another site that will be a storytelling site that has not yet been produced.
Happy to be back and gaining more knowledge!
