    Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas has denied a sexual assault accusation leveled against him by a one-time female dinner guest, according to a report published Thursday.


    The allegation, reported in the National Law Journal, comes nearly three weeks after Moira Smith wrote on Facebook that Thomas had grabbed her buttocks multiple times during a 1999 dinner party at the justice’s home. Smith, now general counsel to Enstar Natural Gas Company, said she was one of several Truman scholar invited to Thomas’ home that evening and was setting the table when the alleged unwanted contact occurred. She was 23 at the time.

    Critics on Excluding Clarence Thomas From New African American Museum: ‘Real Discrimination,’ ‘Racist, Intolerant and Hateful’

    upload_2016-10-27_13-38-37.png

    (CNSNews.com) – The new National African American Museum of History and Culture does not include some prominent black men and women in its exhibits, including Associate Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. Critics of the exclusion expressed irony that a museum dedicated to telling the African American story has chosen to omit certain blacks, despite their success and the significant role they play in that story.

    “The fact that the Smithsonian Museum has chosen to leave [Thomas] out of the African American Museum underscores a sad truth about the American Left,” Bishop E.W. Jackson, founder and president of Stay True To America’s National Destiny (STAND), told CNSNews.com. “They are the most racist, intolerant and hateful people in our country today.”

    I disagree. Groping is sexual assault when the receiver of the grope is not open to it. Just change it up a bit and consider how you would feel about it if you were groped by homosexual men. Would you consider it something harmless, or would you be rightfully upset?

    Absolutely, YES, this is what it comes down to. Answer Hermetic... How would you feel if a MALE employee with superior ranking within your employment was constantly grabbing feels on your buttocks, or even penis with impunity?

    My secondary question to y'all was; do you think it is unfair that Clarence Thomas was excluded from the Museum?
