Civics: Customers want to know why Amazon removed Clarence Thomas documentary

Christina Maas:

Critics have lamented that Amazon has stopped streaming a documentary on Justice Clarence Thomas.

Customers have noticed that “Created Equal: Clarence Thomas in His Own Words,” a documentary on the renowned supreme court justice, is no longer available for streaming on Amazon Prime.

To celebrate Black History, Amazon created a page called “Amplify Black Voices,” which “features a curated collection of titles to honor Black History Month across four weekly themes (Black Love, Black Joy, Black History Makers, and Black Girl Magic).”

On Amazon Prime, the company added multiple films, including docu-dramas and documentaries on the country’s first black supreme court justice, Thurgood Marshall. The site even added two films about Anita Hill, the woman who made claims that Thomas sexually harassed her.
