Several college professors unleashed vulgarities at conservative Supreme Court Justices Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas after they were offended by some of Scalia’s comments during oral arguments in the case of Fisher v. University of Texas at Austin, which has to do with the constitutionality of affirmative action policies in college admissions.
The professors took umbrage with one of Scalia’s comments, in which the jurist asked the counsel for UT to respond to an argument made by opponents of affirmative action, pointing out that “there are those who contend that it does not benefit African Americans to–to get them into the University of Texas where they do not do well, as opposed to having them go to a less advanced school, a less a slower track school where they do well. One of – one of the briefs pointed out that that most of the — most of the black scientists in this country don’t come from schools like the University of Texas.”
Apparently believing Scalia’s comments to be offensive, several college professors took to Twitter to show their contempt for both Justice Scalia and Justice Thomas.
I can imagine Clarence Thomas nodding as Scalia says blacks should stick to "slower track schools". He's talking about you, you dumb fuck.

Scalia reveling in being an asshole. He's getting worse, right? Feels like he's getting worse.

Despite his own vulgarity, Johnston has been an ardent defender of “trigger warnings” for college students.
