The wokety woke Amazon has gone into full tyrant mode showing that diversity for the Woke Supremacists is only superficial, because if your belief systems don’t conform to the Supremacy then you’re not considered a part of diversity. When leftists claim to love diversity they’re not really talking about true diversity. For the Left, diversity means people from different races, colors, genders, and backgrounds, but all of them must subscribe to the Woke Supremacy ideology.
Such is the case that Amazon, during Black History Month, yanked a critically acclaimed documentary on Justice Clarence Thomas, the only black justice serving on the US Supreme Court, from their streaming platform. Why would they do this? What did Justice Thomas ever do to them?
Now, if you go to watch the movie you get a notification saying “Created Equal: Clarence Thomas in His Own Words,” is “currently unavailable to watch in your location.”
This is crossing a line of decency. The Left has now come full circle and is back to saying “keep the darkies out,” reminiscent of the Ku Klux Klan.
Black Americans should be offended by this regardless of their political ideology. Even though Amazon pulled the documentary for ideological reasons it’s still a racist move because the Woke Supremacy’s ideological belief is that because Thomas is a black man he should naturally be of the same ideological persuasion as the Woke Supremacy. How is that any different from when Joe Biden said “Unlike the African American community, with notable exceptions, the Latino community is an incredibly diverse community with incredibly diverse attitudes about different things” during the 2020 campaign?
While Amazon dropped the PBS documentary on only the second black Supreme Court justice in history during Black History Month you will be pleased to know that you can still watch “All In: The Fight for Democracy” with Stacey Abrams.
Amazon Prime created an entire Amplify Black Voices page on its site that “feature[s] a curated collection of titles to honor Black History Month across four weekly themes (Black Love, Black Joy, Black History Makers, and Black Girl Magic).” There are scores of films available to stream, including four films available on the Amazon Prime site to stream (two docudramas and two documentaries) on Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall, a liberal icon and our nation’s first black Supreme Court justice. There are even two films (one docudrama and one documentary) on Anita Hill, who came forward during Thomas’ confirmation hearing to claim that Thomas had sexually harassed her. (Hill’s story never added up and, and as reflected in a NY Times/CBS News poll after the Senate confirmation hearings, American men and women believed Thomas by a 2-1 margin.)
All of the films are free to watch with your Prime membership, except the Clarence Thomas documentary, which you can now only get if you buy the DVD, according to The Federalist.
The exclusion of a prominent black American such as Justice Clarence Thomas during an effort made by Amazon to celebrate black voices throughout Black History Month shows that the platform is not truly sincere about black voices, only leftist black voices that conform to the Woke Supremacy that Amazon is a part of. It’s a crime to be the decider that Thomas’s story should not be learned by any American who wants to know it.
Thomas was born to deeply poor and uneducated parents in Georgia where he fought to break away from the segregated south he was raised in to find something better for his life.
“The more I read about the black power movement, the more I wanted to be a part of it,” he wrote in his memoir “My Grandfather’s Son.” He wrote, “What was the point of working within the system? Segregation, lynchings, black codes, slavery…surely the time for politeness and nonviolent protest was over.”
The Left hates Thomas because his worldview was formed by the notion all men are created equal. The Left expects – nay – demands that black people who are thrust into power positions must use them to bring more power and influence to the leftist Woke Supremacy. Those who fail to do so are canceled. The Left can’t stand the fact that a black man on the Supreme Court is the most consistent originalist justice in the history of the Court because they hate the Constitution since the Constitution creates a level playing field where those who play by the rules win and lazy people who don’t want to put in the effort lose.

Clarence Thomas is undeniably historic in that he is the second black American to serve on the High Court and he is the longest-serving black justice as well. He is to be celebrated and not shunned, especially during Black History Month, and Amazon should be ashamed of itself.
