In a startling revelation and nineteen years after the Clarence Thomas Supreme Court nomination hearings, Virginia Thomas has reportedly left a message for Anita Hill apologizing for her part in the controversy.
One of the most shocking revelations at the hearings involving Ms. Hill was her testimony that Clarence Thomas had at one time held up a can of Coke and said to her, "Who put this pubic hair on my Coke can?" The entire Senate committee was shocked into silence. The hearings were stopped and Ms. Hill was vilified and excoriated by the Republican members of the committee.
Reportedly, the message from Mrs. Thomas said, "Anita, I know it has been nineteen years but it has been bothering me all this time and I have to call you and apologize. It was MY pubic hair on the coke can! Clarence knew that. You see, it was our little joke. I always put something in his lunch, a kind of joke you know. It would be a chocolate kiss, or a smiley face, and sometimes to make him laugh and think of me, a pubic hair on a Coke can or in his sandwich. It would sometimes get stuck in his teeth along with the others and we would laugh when he got home that night. These are things married folks do sometimes, something I don't think you know much about. Anyway, it has been bothering me all these years and I want to say I am sorry. Ta, Ta, I have to go now. I am late for my Klan meeting. Do stop over some time. We'll have a sandwich and a Coke!"
