Sotomayor and racism
Someone wrote recently that they find it amusing Supreme Court justice nominee Sonia Sotomayor would be accused of racism in her “wise Latina” comments since conservatives probably also believe they and their race is superior.
He cited no specific examples. Sorry, I can’t provide a link for you to read since the newspaper does not have a website.
The gent seems to forget that since Sotomayor potentially could become one of the highest judges in the land, her comments should indeed be scrutinized. Especially since most of her majority opinions on court of appeals were later overturned by the Supreme Court and since there’s evidence to suggest she unfairly favors women and minorities in her court decisions.
I live in the People’s Republic of Michigan and know that the senatorial drones that are Debbie Stabenow and Carl Levin will probably vote to confirm Sotomayor. I only hope that in my home state of Texas, Senators Kay Bailey Hutchison and John Cornyn show some rational thought and vote no.
Just wondering…if Sotomayor is elected and turns out to be a liberal justice whose rulings border on communism, does that mean we could call her “Red Sonja”?
