Roland Martin Agrees with Clarence Thomas About White Liberal Racism | Mediaite: "Whereas Southern racism has its roots in the slave-era mentality of inherent inferiority and threatening sexuality, racism in the North is more centered on criminal stereotypes and grievances related to employment.
This doesn’t seem to be what Justice Thomas was referencing, however. While reporting on Justice Thomas’ remarks is somewhat short on context, he appears to be referencing this latter form of racism, the idea that a black person, especially a conservative, is insufficiently grateful to white liberals for policy gains, or otherwise does not know his or her place. White liberals often stray into territory where they don’t belong, falsely believing that because they are allies to black Americans, they are positioned to judge other black Americans’ positions in that community, and in that struggle."
