How did this interviewer ever catch Justice Clarence Thomas?

He doesn’t give many interviews so she must really had some good connections. Probably is a close friend of his wife. I found it interesting. (35 minutes)

  1. You will be surprised to Justice Thomas’ answer to “The best part of being a Justice?” (32:35) It brought tears to the interviewer.

  2. In the interview, I was really struck by his comments about illiterate people that he has known, and how they are “incarcerated by their inability to decipher things.”

    “Reading is a blessing.”   He says that as a kid he had prayed that he would enjoy reading.   Wow; reading is my life; I remember Mama reading to me, sitting in her lap when I was very very small.  I was reading well when I started school.   But, not reading was a real option for a poor black kid in Savannah.

    That part of the interview begins at about fourteen minutes in.

    I was surprised that he didn’t feel comfortable in the English language till 1980. If it wasn’t for his stable grandparents he would have never have made.

    What I noticed was how quick he was to give credit to others. It was from his heart and not some people pleasing tripe.
