Did Clarence Thomas Just Hire A Clerk Who Allegedly Wrote ‘I HATE BLACK PEOPLE’

Raise your hand if you’re surprised to learn that Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas recently made headlines by hiring a law clerk who’s faced allegations of sending racist text messages, as reported by The New York Times. As we thought. Nobody’s hand went up.

The clerk in question, Crystal Clanton, a graduate of the Antonin Scalia Law School at George Mason University and former national field director for Turning Point USA, is set to work with Justice Thomas during the 2024-2025 term.

Clanton came under scrutiny in a 2017 article by The New Yorker, which detailed allegations that she had sent racially charged text messages to fellow members of Turning Point USA. One of the messages reportedly stated, “I HATE BLACK PEOPLE. Like f**k them all…I hate blacks. End of story.”

Despite the accusations, Clanton has claimed she does not recall sending such messages.
