To date, no major new outlet has been able to obtain a response from Amazon regarding the action.
Mr. Akins' letter is reproduced below in its entirety:
Mr. Jeff Bezos,
Although I have been a loyal customer, ( 693 orders in the past 12 years ), plus what ever my wife has ordered, along with the Prime, music, kindles books and 5 different Alexa devices, I am seriously considering calling for a national boycott of Amazon and all of it's different services.
I am not usually one that would consider doing that, however your latest action with regards to Justice Clarence Thomas has me seriously considering doing just that.
With all of the hatred going on in our country now, I for the life of me cannot understand how you could become the very RACIST that our country is trying so hard to overcome. Banning Justice Thomas's book is about as ugly as you can get. Justice Thomas is a man of great integrity and honor. OH yeah, and he happens to be Black.....I suppose that if any Black person is on the conservative side, you no longer consider that person to be Black. Kinda reminds of something Joe Biden said. You remember, if you don't vote liberal, you ain't black.......GEEZE.
And to think this is Black History Month....Oh, I am White, and until people like you and Obama started this race baiting and woke mentality, I would never think twice about a person's color..
A man is just a man, he is what his soul makes of him that really counts, not some veneer on the outside.
You are one really smart guy, look at all you have built, AMAZING, but with this stunt, you have lowered yourself and Amazon to a low that is unforgivable. I suppose a sincere public apology to Justice Thomas would be a good thing if you could get off of your throne long enough to admit you were wrong would go a long ways in restoring your credibility as a real man of vision and a true AMERICAN.
