Flashback: Anita Hill’s explosive opening statement

By Chad Rhodes

In 1991, Anita Hill publicly accused then Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment in the early 1980s.

She spoke the truth and the people still closed their eyes.

  1. This woman is an American Hero to all women. Not Just black women, but to all you faint of heart white women who let it continue until 2017. Yeah I am calling every one of you out…
    1991 this woman by the name of Anita Hill stood on Capitol Hill in front of the whole world and testified to the horrendous sexual harassment crime that had been committed by Clarence Thomas. Sadly to say the “Ole Boys Club” mentality was the only thing that saved his ass. And Perhaps Anita Hill being dubbed an “angry black woman” and Clarence Thomas being married to a white woman. That’s my bomb shell… BOOM!!!
