Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas is an American hero whose common sense jurisprudence and life’s story deserve more study.

But, Amazon’s Prime Video streaming service inexplicably decided to remove the documentary showcasing Thomas’ life and work, “Created Equal: Clarence Thomas in His Own Words.”

Please take a minute to SIGN and SHARE this petition asking Amazon to restore Thomas’ documentary to their streaming service.

‘Created Equal’ is a classic American story revealing Thomas’ rise from poverty in the segregated South to eventually becoming one of the most influential justices on the country’s highest court.

Of course, in order to take his seat on the Supreme Court in 1991, Thomas had to go through the crucible of Senate Hearings which served as the launching point of a smear campaign against him, not unlike what Brett Kavanaugh endured in 2018.

At the time, the Democrats outnumbered Republicans in the Senate, 57 to 43, and many recall the Thomas nomination, and the smear tactics used, as a low-point for Senate Democrats in the early 90’s.

What many also remember was how Thomas was up for the fight. Indeed, Thomas reacted strongly to what transpired at the hearings, saying of them: “And from my standpoint, as a black American, as far as I’m concerned it is a high-tech lynching for uppity blacks who in any way deign to think for themselves…”

However, what many people forget is that it was none other than Joe Biden who lead these “disgraceful” nomination proceedings against Thomas, for, in 1991, Biden was the Chairman of the Senate’s Judiciary Committee!

Could it be that Amazon’s decision to remove Thomas’ documentary is politically-motivated, covering for present-day Joe Biden not wanting to show him in a bad light?

Or, could it be that Amazon is continuing its efforts to censor and silence conservative American voices?

Given the fact that ‘Created Equal’ is the twentieth-highest ranked documentary on Amazon, it should be an easy business decision for Amazon to make, if their decision is not, indeed, politically-motivated.

Please SIGN now, and urge Amazon to restrore Clarence Thomas’ documentary, ‘Created Equal: Clarence Thomas in His Own Words,’ to their streaming service, Amazon Prime. Thank you!
