How the hell is abortion a racial issue? If anything, abortion is anti-black. Planned Parenthood has its ROOTS in keeping the black population in check.
Marvel Studios star Samuel L. Jackson blasted black U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas by using a racially-charged slur to criticize him over the court’s abortion ruling Friday.
After the Supreme Court issued its Dobbs ruling that overturned the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, Jackson quipped on social media, “How’s Uncle Clarence feeling about Overturning Loving v Virginia?”
Of course, Loving v. Virginia is the famed Supreme Court decision from 1967 that declared prohibitions on interracial marriage were unconstitutional. The ruling came five years before the Roe decision and was solidly based on the Constitution’s Equal Protection Clause, finding that it is unconstitutional to prevent interracial marriage because marriage was “generally accepted conduct” outside the restrictions based solely on race, so the race restriction was arbitrary and meant solely to promulgate “invidious racial discrimination.”
Loving has no connection to Roe, does not rely on Roe’s reasoning (by virtue of coming down 6 years prior), and is not facing any public campaign for reversal. Indeed, Thomas himself never mentioned Loving for the chief reason that the 1967 ruling was decided on a completely different clause of the Constitution than whatt Thomas was focusing on in the cases he felt should be overturned.
