I Did Do It – New York Times

Maureen Dowd, putting a few words in Clarence’s mouth…

I Did Do It – New York Times:

Because Poppy Bush put me on the Supreme Court after I’d been a judge for only a year, I’ll always wonder if I got the job just because of my race. I want to spare other blacks that kind of worry. That’s why I pulled the ladder up after myself — so that my brothers and sisters would have the peace of mind that comes with self-reliance.

Give the gift of words.
