– Clarence Thomas roiled academe during his confirmation hearings for the Supreme Court. Now his new autobiography, My Grandfather’s Son, is sparking rancorous response from professors. Revisiting his journey from poverty in Georgia to the highest court in the land, Thomas also reviews his contretemps with Anita Hill, claiming the black law professor who accused him of sexual harassment was used by his political foes to "lynch" him. At the group blog blackprof.com, Sherrilyn Ifill, JD, professor at the School of Law, writes: "Everything that remained unanswered about Thomas is, for me, answered by the fact that he felt compelled to publish this book repeating his incredible [by that I mean, lacking in credibility] claim that Anita Hill’s testimony was false, dragging out the trope of the high-tech lynching, and just altogether showing that he is a man of too many complexes and too much anger to ever be a great Supreme Court justice."
