I’m sure Trent would be cool with this cross burning thing

If you haven’t already Dahlia Lithwick’s report on Virginia vs Black, you really need to, if only for this part:

Out of nowhere booms the great, surprising “Luke-I-am-your-father” voice of He Who Never Speaks. Justice Clarence Thomas suddenly asks a question and everyone’s head pops up and starts looking madly around, like the Muppets on Veterinarian Hospital. “Aren’t you understating the effects … of 100 years of lynching?” he booms. “This was a reign of terror, and the cross was a sign of that. … It is unlike any symbol in our society. It was intended to cause fear, terrorize.”

The whole article is great reading.
