Justice Thomas Speaks At Lee Chapel
He responded to a question from a student: "Was slavery constitutional?" It would have been quite interesting if someone had asked him about secession. ;o)
"I have nothing, but fond memories of the time I came and spent here at VMI and here in Lexington." (Justice Thomas's son attended VMI)
He spoke to a crowd of 300 at the "Shrine of the South" - Lee Chapel on the campus of Washington & Lee University in Lexington, Virginia. Justice Thomas is one of my heroes. I admire him greatly and he is the quintessential Southern gentleman. His personal story is quite amazing.
Watch some video of his comments here.
