Michael was born in South Africa at the height of the apartheid era He quickly became involved in the underground resistance movement, knew Nelson Mandela and other prominent revolutionaries, some of whom later moved into privileged positions formerly occupied by whites. After several exciting escapes, he was forced to flee the country in disguise. He successfully made his way to the UK and gained his PhD at Cambridge on a university scholarship, He then pursued the dual career of college professor and social revolutionary, provoking academic and political mayhem wherever he went. Having thus failed miserably at both politics and education, he now cynically rails like Diogenes at the foibles of mankind in bitter satires and faintly subtly edgy political cartoons. History will, however absolve him. In 2006 he discovered a new Shakespeare play, but it's going to take a new generation to acknowledge it.

    So who’s the racist? The affirmative action decision by the Supreme Court was by a 6 to 2 majority. Why do you single out the Black Justice Clarence among (in this case) seven other white justices? Or are you suggesting that he would not have been a suitable or capable judge for appointment to the Supreme Court if he were not black ie without the benefit of affirmative action? Are you also suggesting that having been appointed to the bench that he owes some sort of duty to deliver judgements according to presumed political loyalties rather than what he considers just and correct? And why do you presume that he should have the same political loyalties as you? Your cockeyed view of the functions of a Justice of the Supreme Court is confused at best and racist at worst.

    Yes I am suggesting he would not have even been considered for the Supreme Court without his race, urged on by the ambience of affirmative action so palpable at the time. He even went so far as to accuse the Senate of racism (“high-tech lynching”) and they quickly backed down, so he got preferential treatment on the harassment charges. His performance on court has been pathetic–he literally has nothing to say and votes with the conservatives almost mindlessly. His last vote was actually against the affirmative action he has so benefited from. Hence the cartoon as he bites the hand that still feeds him.

    BTW, don’t get so steamed up. It’s just a cartoon.

      By your own admission therefore, affirmative action is no basis for an appointment to the bench. Or any other appointment for that matter. And was Sotomayor appointed because she’s Hispanic and Kagan because she’s Jewish? I’ve got a better idea. Let’s just appoint judges because they’re good judges.
      And hey, if I can’t get steamed up by a cartoon, then what CAN I get steamed up about!
