The comments come in the context of liberal Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer’s retirement, and President Biden’s vow to only consider black women for the open seat on the bench.

Hostin made her remarks during a discussion with the co-hosts of ABC’s “The View.”

Hostin: Clarence Thomas’s ideas don’t ‘really represent the black community’

Co-host Sara Haines said, “Considering the uneven kind of court we have right now, it’s so important that this is happening in a time where we can get another liberal, and of course, the representation more than anything, you pointed out, first black woman.”

“There’s only been two black men,” Haines added. “Those numbers are a little shocking.”

The two black Justices have been Thurgood Marshall, who served from 1967 until 1991, and Clarence Thomas, who has been on the bench since 1991.

Perhaps ironically, Joe Biden and the Democrats fought viciously to keep Thomas, a black man, off the Supreme Court during his confirmation hearings.

Hostin jumped in to say, “And one doesn’t really represent the black community.”

Joy Behar said, “No. Oh, Clarence.”

Haines continued, “But my whole point is that additional diversity I think is important that I just noticed as we talked about this, is when they talk about a potential justice, we talk about the Ivy League. It’s always the Ivy League. Like right now everybody is in Harvard except Amy Coney Barrett who is Notre Dame.”

Hostin: ‘It’s terribly disrespectful to appoint someone like Clarence Thomas with his philosophies to the seat of Thurgood Marshall’

Hostin replied, “It’s terribly disrespectful to appoint someone like Clarence Thomas with his philosophies to the seat of Thurgood Marshall, a civil rights activist. Also with his wife’s activities involving the insurrection.”

It was reported earlier this month by the New Yorker that Ginni Thomas, wife of the Supreme Court justice, posted support on Facebook for the protests on January 6.

The notion that black Americans have to line up with Democratic or progressive principles to be genuinely black is not a new idea on the left.

During the 2020 election, Joe Biden created controversy when he said during an interview, “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”
