Samuel L Jackson has dubbed Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas “Uncle Clarence” after the conservative justice wrote an opinion defending the court's decision to overturn Roe v Wade - and suggested using the logic to overturn other landmark decisions. “Uncle Clarence” is an apparent reference to the eponymous character of abolitionist Harriet Beecher Stowe's novel “Uncle Tom's Cabin,” who was widely seen as compliant and subservient to his white masters. In his tweet on Saturday, Jackson wrote: “How’s Uncle Clarence feeling about overturning Loving v Virginia??!!” The 1967 case declared that state bans on interracial marriages violated the Equal Process Clause and the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution. The decision apparently led to Thomas getting married to Virginia Lamp, a white woman, 20 years later. But in his opinion defending the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v Wade on Friday, and eliminate a woman's Constitutional right to an abortion, Thomas suggested the court should consider overturning other landmark decisions. Thomas called for his colleagues to reconsider and potentially overturn other cases decided on the legal authority of substantive due process.
