Criticizing Clarence Thomas for ignoring interracial marriage, Samuel L. Jackson slams the Supreme Court justice.
A concurring opinion by Justice Clarence Thomas of the Supreme Court calls for a further look at rulings legalizing contraception, sodomy, and same-sex marriage. Written by Glenn Garner.
On the heels of the Supreme Court’s newest decision, Samuel L. Jackson is commenting on the consequences.
After the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) overturned Roe v. Wade in 1973 and the constitutional right to abortion, Oscar-winning actor and activist 73-year-old Clarence Thomas was singled out for criticism.
When asked, “How is Uncle Clarence feeling about Loving v Virginia’s overturn?” On Friday, Jackson tweeted a reference to the historic 1967 Supreme Court decision that deemed interracial marriage laws unconstitutional. Virginia Thomas, a white lady, has been Justice Thomas’ wife since 1987, when he was 74 years old and a Black man.
“Reconsider” the verdicts that allowed birth control, sodomy, and same-sex marriage said Thomas, who was selected by President George H. Bush in 1991 to serve on the Supreme Court as the second Black person ever to serve on the court.
“All of the Supreme Court’s substantive due process decisions, including Griswold, Lawrence, and Obergefell, should be revisited in future instances. It is our obligation to ‘correct the wrong’ created in previous decisions since any substantive due process judgment is ‘demonstrably erroneous.’ “he said.
PEOPLE has received a comment from Jim Obergefell, one of the plaintiffs in the landmark Obergefell v. Hodge decision that granted the freedom to marry to same-sex couples, who said that Thomas is “not the Supreme Deity.”
“Humans nominate Clarence Thomas to the Supreme Court; he is not the Almighty. Clarence Thomas’ warped morality should not be imposed on the millions of loving couples who have the freedom to marry and build their own families via marriage equality. Look in the mirror, Clarence Thomas, if you want to see a lapse of judgment on your part “he said.
Earlier in the day, U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren used Twitter to criticize Thomas: “Right-wing fanatics aren’t going to stop at abortion, as Clarence Thomas made very clear. Marriage equality, contraception, and anybody who doesn’t fit the mold of their ideal American are on their list of priorities. However, the Supreme Court will not have the last say; it will be overruled by the people of the United States.”
On Friday, a six-to-three decision by the Supreme Court overturned over 50 years of precedent, allowing states to choose their own abortion restrictions. Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, and South Dakota have all already outlawed abortion as a result of the Supreme Court’s decision, enacting “trigger bans” as a result.
President Joe Biden has spoken out against the verdict, calling it “the fulfillment of an extreme ideology and a regrettable blunder by the Supreme Court.” Since then, protests have broken out around the nation.
Last month, Politico leaked a copy of the Supreme Court’s judgment. 66 percent of Americans, according to a CNN survey, oppose overturning Roe v. Wade.
