Clarence Thomas's Antebellum
South, Where Slaves Had Dignity
"The corollary of that
principle is that human dignity cannot be taken away by
the government. Slaves did not lose their dignity (any
more than they lost their humanity) because the
government allowed them to be enslaved. Those held in
internment camps did not lose their dignity because the
government confined them. And those denied governmental
benefits certainly do not lose their dignity because the
government denies them those benefits. The government
cannot bestow dignity, and it cannot take it away."
A great read, "Whining White Southerners"
especially when you
think of Justice Thomas's quote about Slaves having
EXCERPT FROM "Whining White Southerns" By Robert Parry
Whenever theres a
suggestion that the Confederate battle flag should be
retired to museums or that the name of Confederate
President Jefferson Davis should be removed from major
highways, there comes the predictable accusation that
such moves amount to rewriting our history
but nothing could be further from the truth.
Its a case of recognizing the real history.
What America needs perhaps now more than ever
is a serious reexamination of its true history,
not the pleasant palliatives offered in textbooks
approved by Southern-dominated boards appointed by
right-wing politicians. Under such benighted tutelage,
popular U.S. history as taught in public schools has
become primarily a brainwashing exercise, an ideological
foundation for American exceptionalism, the
jumping-off point for todays endless wars.
Plus, given Americas continuing racial tensions,
its particularly important to throw away the
rose-colored glasses used to view the issues of slavery
and the antebellum South, happy scenes of elegantly
dressed white people lounging on the veranda of a stately
plantation house, sipping mint juleps while being cooled
by fans waved by contented and placid Negroes, a white
supremacists happiest dream.
A June 24 column by Harold Meyerson cited a recent book
The Half Has Never Been Told by Cornell University
history professor Edward Baptist that explodes the
enduring white Southern myth of the kindly and beneficent
plantation. Baptist argues that even the word
plantation should be tossed into the trash
bin of historical euphemisms, replaced by the more
accurate phrase slave labor camp, albeit one
with a large, pretty house in the center.
Torture is also a word that should apply,
Baptist argues, with African-American slaves routinely
whipped for falling short of their production quotas.
This behavior was not just common among the most ignorant
of Southern slaveholders but was a practice employed even
by Thomas Jefferson.
According to documents at Monticello, Jefferson had slave
boys as young as 10 whipped. In another important book
that strips away the excuses employed to ameliorate the
evils of slavery, Master of the Mountain: Thomas
Jefferson and His Slaves by historian Henry Wiencek
disclosed a plantation report to Jefferson explaining
that his nail factory was doing well because the
small ones ages 10, 11 and 12 were
being whipped by overseer, Gabriel Lilly, for
Jefferson and other slaveholders in the older slave
states like Virginia, where the soil had become
over-farmed and depleted, also found financial salvation
in breeding slaves for the newer (and even more brutal)
slave states of Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi.
Jefferson even calculated that a fertile female had a
higher financial value than a strapping male in the
fields, all the better to help him pay for his
extravagant lifestyle and cover his mounting debts.
(According to Wienceks book and many other
accounts, Jefferson also personally contributed to the
breeding process by imposing himself sexually on his
female property.) ...

EXCERPT FROM: Clarence Thomas Cites Slavery In His
Dissent Against Marriage Equality, For Some Reason
Updated: 06/26/2015 2:59 pm EDT
WASHINGTON -- Justice Clarence Thomas has lost his damn
In Thomas' dissent in Obergefell v. Hodges, the case that
officially made marriage equality the law of the land on
Friday, the Supreme Court justice claimed that enslaved
Africans werent deprived of their
dignity simply because they were enslaved.
Therefore, Thomas argued, same-sex couples weren't
actually being deprived of anything -- at least not
anything, you know, important -- when they couldn't get
Seriously. That's what he said. Don't take our word for
it -- see for yourself:
Human dignity has long been understood in this country to
be innate. When the Framers proclaimed in the Declaration
of Independence that all men are created
equal and endowed by their Creator with
certain unalienable Rights, they referred to a
vision of mankind in which all humans are created in the
image of God and therefore of inherent worth. That vision
is the foundation upon which this Nation was built.
The corollary of that principle is that human dignity
cannot be taken away by the government. Slaves did not
lose their dignity (any more than they lost their
humanity) because the government allowed them to be
enslaved. Those held in internment camps did not lose
their dignity because the government confined them. And
those denied governmental benefits certainly do not lose
their dignity because the government denies them those
benefits. The government cannot bestow dignity, and it
cannot take it away.
Just... what? We'd like to suggest an alternative
argument, which is that slavery did eliminate the dignity
of the slaves because it was a brutal and racist system
of state-sanctioned bondage. Thomas is really reaching
here. Yes, human dignity is innate, but of course it can
be undermined by discriminatory government policies. Just
because the government didn't bestow something doesn't
mean it can't take it away.
