Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas said “the modern-day liberal” has proven to be a bigger “impediment” towards him as a black man than members of the Ku Klux Klan.
Thomas made the remarks in the upcoming documentary Created Equal: Clarence Thomas in His Own Words.
The documentary, which features Thomas’s reflection on his contentious 1991 Supreme Court confirmation, reportedly features the Supreme Court justice explaining that the “modern-day liberal” has proven to be more of a problem than the people he was initially worried about.
“I felt as though in my life I had been looking at the wrong people as the people who would be problematic toward me. We were told that, ‘Oh, it’s gonna be the bigot in the pickup truck; it’s gonna be the Klansmen; it’s gonna be the rural sheriff,’” Thomas said, according to ABC News.
