John Lewis Calls Out Scalia's Racism

Before speculating about how John Lewis must have felt about yesterday's events, I should have looked around to see if he has responded publicly. It turns out he has. He was in the courtroom! He described his response to Scalia's racism:
It was unreal, unbelievable, almost shocking, for a member of the court to use certain language. I can see politicians and even members of Congress — but it is just appalling to me.
He also said Scalia's comments were "an affront to all of what the civil rights movement stood for."
