“well I don’t actually know what he did.”
Students at the Savannah College of Arts and Design passed around a petition to remove Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas’s name from a building because he “is ‘anti-woman’ and doesn’t represent the values of the college.
Campus Reform found that many students don’t know why they signed the petition:
Most students Phillips spoke with were clear in wanting the building name changed. They were not so clear in what it was they were so upset about.
One student, after saying she would sign the petition, admitted, “I don’t know I haven’t done much research on this. I just saw the petition and that’s the extent of it.” Another student in support of the petition echoed a similar sentiment, saying, “well I don’t actually know what he did,” while yet another added, “I really don’t know anything about him.”
One student went so far as to compare Thomas to Hitler, though when asked if he could name anything Thomas had done to justify such a comparison, the student admitted, “I mean not in particular.”
