Perhaps Not What Thurgood Marshall Would Have Chosen

The political bloggers are having a nice chuckle about the continuing and well-deserved pain being inflicted on Sen. George Allen for his on-camera racist remark. Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy. The latest two chapters are that the Senator undercut his own apology by saying that “no one cares” about the issue — it’s all the media’s fault — and now by feeling compelled to turn down an award for “Leadership” offered by Thurgood Marshall Scholarship Fund

But wait a minute: how on earth did it come to pass that the Thurgood Marshall Scholarship Fund ever came to offer any sort of honor to such a notorious champion of the Confederate flag?

I’m pretty sure if Justice Marshall were alive today he’d have something earthy to say about it.
