If we’re going to have an affirmative action Supreme Court nominee, can’t we at least have one that\’s hot?

    hey she suffered.

    well actually no someone with the same skin colour (kinda) suffered.

    not giving her a free ride would be racist.

    this equation is flawed.

    Too bad she’s not replacing one of the morons appointed by Bush Jr. But at least she’s replacing one appointed by Bush Sr.

    The fact that Bush SR. appointed the judge thats retiring has nothing to do with that judges far left voting record. Basically Obama is trying to replace one leftest judge with another leftist judge.

    It is called “Affirmative Action.”

    If you’re going to chide Bush Jr.’s picks to SCOTUS as “morons”, could you please use proper grammar? KTXBAI

    That’s exactly what a free ride is.

    She got into Yale and Princeton because of the same racist bullshit that got her this job. Then she got it subsidized with tax money.

    Bullshit is bullshit and this shit is bullshit.

    Well she got honorary degrees.

    In general, it’s a little difficult to do stuff like that at schools, because you have to take the tests just like everyone else.

    I don’t know where you got this idea from.

    People who think that Affirmative Action always places someone ill-equipped where a white, well-equipped person would do better clearly don’t understand the point behind Affirmative Action. White people get better grades in public schools on average, most likely because the public school system is racist and privileged. When I went to sleep in high school the teacher would come over to talk to me. When a black kid fell asleep in class the teacher would ignore him/her. Yeah, it’s anecdotal, but who here has a counter-anecdote, of a minority student receiving special attention from the teacher willingly and not because… Read more »

    Erm, I think you misunderstood me here. I was saying that in high school, at least mine, whites got special attention when they inevitably got apathetic. Blacks and other minorities were left to fail or barely passed and had their attitudes encouraged. In a county school here, the teachers actually encouraged their minority students to sleep because it meant less work for them. No one who goes to an Ivy League school is really stupid. People give Bush a hard time because his speeching is very poor, but so’s Stephen Hawkings. I don’t like Bush, but he’s not stupid. It… Read more »

    If I understand you correctly Tiki, I disagree; regardless of their MANY skin colors, I am indeed indebted to the actual people whose work this country was built upon; a debt that does not extend to their great, great, great… grand children.

    Vis-à-vis, should the descendants of our nations founding fathers receive perks merely because generations ago this country was built upon their work?

    It’s not only racial minorities that get messed over; as through world history; segregation stems from money and power, or lack of.

    Growing up in the Bronx housing projects, and losing her dad at age 9 isn’t suffering because she didn’t suffer enough as the right would like.

    Nominating someone who graduated Summa Cum Laude from Princeton is affirmative action, because only white men got where they are by hard work, regardless of the evidence to the contrary.

    How long before they prepare to filibuster her even though just a few short years ago to do so was a “nuclear option?” Or that she is the most librul evar!

    Having shrewish temper means automatically that you got a free ride?
    Also, when and where did she say that about latina women. Do you have any links.
    So far those are mostly shallow accusations, unless you have proof. Even then, she’s still a remarkable student.

    AliceH

    You kind of misquoted her there, didn’t you.

    She didn’t say inherently, she was talking specifically about people who didn’t have the same experiences. It wasn’t very clever of her to say that, because of course people are going to pick it apart, but it does hold truth. You can turn and twist that all you want, she wasn’t talking about two equal people, she was comparing experience.

    “a lack of judgment and self-restraint that I find unbecoming of the highest court in the land”

    Yeah, it’s not a good trait, but her education doesn’t become less valid because of that.

    Baloney, Alice. The definition of activist judge is someone that makes decisions that you don’t like. It is a meaningless ad hom and part of the never changing script. Honestly, shes part of a centrist appeals court, and is a centrist on it. Besides, its OK for a man to be demanding and aggressive from the bench, but it makes a woman temperamental (code for bitch). “She’s also said that she feels that a Latina woman inherently has better judgment than a white man.” Really? I think that she was saying that specifically on issues where people are discriminated against.

    I don’t understand why people automatically assume that since she’s a Latino woman, she obviously must be shit. Does Obama want to be the guy to get the first Hispanic on the Supreme Court? Obviously. But he’s going to pull a hispanic woman from a pool of very qualified applicants. She doesn’t have the towering legal intellect that people wanted, but she has enough experience and results to merit a shot at the highest bench.

    No you don’t. You want Obama to select a conservative. Otherwise, you wouldn’t be using the line “activist judge.”

    And if selecting a Latina for the position is going to be an asterisk, what exactly does having 96% of all SCOTUS judges in history being white males deserve?

    Personally, I can’t wait for repubs to try to justify voting against her to potential Latino voters. Gonna be fun to watch them say that outstanding Princeton and Yale grads, respected prosecutors, honored judges need not apply, because they aren’t smart enough.

    Racism in America is white supremacy. As a Lakota I get free health care through Indian Health Services. It’s sub standard and I need to sign a death waiver to get anything more serious than Tylenol. We get healthcare through one of the few half assed vestiges of honored treaty rights. Is this racist?

    Racism is not just discrimination by race, it’s a built in power structure that keeps people oppressed. It does exist and reverse racism is a myth.
