This is absolutely disgusting and extremely inappropriate.
Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison, a Democrat, recently expressed his views on Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas’ stance on affirmative action. During an interview with the Michigan Chronicle in Detroit, Ellison crossed the line and drew a comparison between Justice Thomas and the character “Stephen” from Quentin Tarantino’s film “Django Unchained.”
According to Fox, in the film, Stephen, portrayed by Samuel L. Jackson, is depicted as a devoted and cruel black slave to his master, Calvin Candie, played by Leonardo DiCaprio. Ellison suggested that Thomas’ alignment with the majority ruling, which banned race considerations in college admissions, resembled Stephen’s loyalty to powerful interests, disregarding potential harm to others.
Ellison criticized Thomas, claiming that he prioritizes his personal interests over his responsibility as a Supreme Court Justice to protect the rights of all citizens. He went as far as to suggest that Thomas’ position on the High Court is “illegitimate” and advocated for his impeachment.
Ellison emphasized that this situation is a significant lesson for African Americans, highlighting the importance of examining one’s beliefs and values rather than merely focusing on external appearances.
In summary, Ellison expressed his concerns regarding Justice Clarence Thomas’ decision on affirmative action, using the analogy of the character Stephen from “Django Unchained” to illustrate his viewpoint.
