Newsweek: In 1971, Justice Thomas was admitted to Yale's Law School as part of the affirmative action practice according to PBS, which reported that the school wanted 10 percent of its incoming class that year to be students of color.
While speaking with MSNBC on Thursday, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) President Derrick Johnson spoke about the affirmative action decision and ruling by Justice Thomas.
The worst thing about affirmative action is that it created a Clarence Thomas who benefited from the program and now is in a position where he's going to deny many young African American talented individuals an opportunity. The problem has been that institutions of higher learning, corporations, companies, and other entities have denied well-qualified African American and other individuals access in terms of admissions, employment, because of their race."
