Thomas Declines Speech After NAACP Threatens Protest

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, who had earlier accepted an invitation to speak at a Delaware Boy and Girl's Club youth banquet, has withdrawn his offer to speak after the NAACP threatened to protest the speech. The NAACP issued a statement that Thomas was not a good role model for the youth, citing his opposition to affirmative action and other civil rights for people of color.
