One wise man arises from the Politically Correct jungle

Clarence Thomas tells graduates to simply be good citizens

. . . "I resist what seems to be some formulaic or standard fare at commencement exercises, some broad complaint about societal injustice and at least one exhortation to the young graduates to go out and solve the stated problem or otherwise to change the world," he said. "Having been where you are, I think it is hard enough for you to solve your own problems, not to mention those problems that often seem to defy solution. In addressing your own obligations and responsibilities in the right way, you actually help to ensure our liberty and our form of government." . . .

Why could Justice Thomas not have been asked to speak these words on a major, state-controlled university; one of those schools designed to challenge the thinking and preconceptions of student?
