Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas says he is heartbroken over the poverty and social troubles among many black communities but has no answers on how to solve these problems.

Thomas spoke Tuesday at Duquesne Law School in Pittsburgh. He said he doesn't bear any ill-will toward others who hold views different from his. If he were going to have hard feelings, he said, it'd be mostly on race issues.

Thomas said he's seen terrible decline in some black communities and "virtually every crime is drug related." Thomas said many young people have no families and no education and numerous anti-poverty programs have failed.

Thomas said the country should "at least fess up and say something is wrong."
