George Takei calls Clarence Thomas “a clown in blackface”…where’s the outrage?

We have truly become a society of selective outrage. Donald Trump has been making some outrageous racial statements and he is paying the price for his statements. The media is on him like white on rice, and rightfully so. Today I saw a statement made by George Takai of Star Trek fame. He called Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas “a clown in blackface.” It’s fine to disagee with Thomas, and I often do but to call him a clown in blackface is a bridge too far and more people should stand up and say it.

    Really? If he even knows who George Takei is or what he said about him, do you think he cares? Why do some people relinquish so much emotional power to individuals who are totally irrelevant to them?
