How times change. Thomas and his backers played the race card loud and clear, back when Anita Hill (reluctantly) came forward to tell all about him at the Senate confirmation hearings thirty years ago—and that play cowed the Democrats (especially Joe Biden). So Thomas got away with likening himself to Jesse Washington and Emmett Hill, joining SCOTUS thanks to that alone. (He certainly did not prevail because he was “the best man for the job,” as Bush the Elder said with a straight face.) The Senate voted “aye” 52-48, although the Senate Democrats outnumbered the Republicans by 16 seats.
Today, Thomas’ racial/gender status has been canceled. In short, he isn’t woke, and therefore isn’t black.

Amazon Quietly Bans Books Containing Undefined ‘Hate Speech’ | 02 March 2021 | Amazon has adopted a rule against books that contain anything the company labels as “hate speech.” It appears there was no announcement of the new rule. It was only noticed by media after the online retailer recently banned a book that criticizes transgender ideology. It isn’t clear what Amazon means by “hate speech” or even if it used that label to drop that particular book. In general parlance, Americans hold widely diverging views on what constitutes hate speech, a 2017 Cato poll found. Some tech platforms describe it as speech that disparages people based on characteristics such as race, gender, and sexual proclivities. But insider evidence indicates the companies aren’t clear on where to draw the lines, perpetually redraw them, and at least in some instances ignore violations when politically convenient.
