White Leftist Demands College Remove Black Leader's Name

Brooklyn hipster Sage Lucero has started a petition demanding that the Savannah College of Art and Design change the name of the Clarence Thomas Center for Historic Preservation.

Clarence Thomas is the grandson of sharecroppers from rural Georgia. Sage Lucero is a white woman who works as a junior copywriter for Johannes Leonardo.

Between the name ‘Sage” and her supposed background in Aspen, a beacon of privilege, she’s the perfect face of the privileged left demanding that a brilliant black man’s name be removed from a building because he offends her politics.

Clarence Thomas worked for everything he had and ended up on the Supreme Court. Now a Brooklyn hipster copywriter is demanding that a Georgia college remove his name from its building.

The left keeps asking us to check our privilege. And then it demonstrates just what privilege looks like.

That online petition on was started by an alum of the Savannah College of Art and Design, Sage Lucero.

She told WTOC in an interview over the phone she wasn’t even aware the building was named in Justice Thomas’ honor until recently.

“No one ever called that building by Clarence Thomas, it was always just the preservation, historic preservation building,” Lucero said.

On the petition page, Lucero draws parallels to the allegations made by Anita Hill against Justice Thomas, and those against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford.

Even if the Kavanaugh hearing and investigation wasn’t making headlines, Lucero says this is an effort she would still make.

“I just think it’s a great coincidence that it’s coming out right now, for me at least, and making sure everyone else realizes it,” Lucero said.

Lucero added that the petition is already a conversation starter between her and SCAD leaders.

SCAD said in a statement sent to WTOC earlier that they are aware of the petition and have reached out to the sponsor.

“I’m actually talking to the president, or one of the president’s of SCAD this evening when I have more time about it, because she contacted me, so I hope to push something forward with that,” Lucero said.

Unearned arrogant malicious privilege. This is its ugly leftist face.
