Doesn't Need An Asterisk

From CaribPundit: An asterisk?
A Milwaukee journalist has described Clarence Thomas, one of the brightest and most original thinkers of all the Justices on the Supreme Court, as being an inauthentic black who should have an asterisk by his name because Justice 'Thomas doesn't count as a black'.

Well, black Americans should be mightily offended at this, not for what it says about Thomas—go read his judicial opinions (I did) and see that I do not overestimate his intellectual acuity—but for what the writer reveals of his thought concerning blacks as a whole.
Read the argument that follows (and a related argument here) to reach the conclusion, "This lil coconut here will stand with that un-authentic, bright, and original thinking black man, Justice Clarence Thomas."
