Many remember the Anita Hill and Clarence Thomas hearings. They were a long time ago but some of us were around for them. Recently Anita Hill spoke to CNN Anchor Chris Wallace, formerly of Fox. And she spoke not about Clarence but about his wife. Ginni Thomas.
In case you didn’t know, Ginni had, at one time, years after these hearings, phoned Anita Hill demanding she (Hill) apologize to her husband. Like THAT would ever happen. Hill spoke out about that surreal moment on Who’s talking to Chris Wallace.
It happened in 2010. Ginni left a strident voicemail saying it was time for Hill to apologize. Hill says she was utterly stunned to receive that message. And at first, she thought it was a joke — that someone was pretending to be Mrs. Thomas. But then she saw the caller ID.
Hill maintained she had no intention of apologizing and just wanted Mrs. Thomas to stop calling her. So she called campus security. Hill also did say we need to find out everything about her(Ginni’s) involvement on January 6 and anything that “puts our democracy at risk.”
It’s good to see Anita Hill speaking out, I do wonder what on earth made Mrs. Thomas call her. Could Ginni have possibly been arrogant that where she believed she or her husband would get an apology? If so, she should check her ego. Because Anita Hill is doing just fine, and the only one who really needs to apologize is Ginni Thomas herself.
