Are. You. Kidding Me?

Imagine if the white male who was nominated by President Bush to the prestigious job of Supreme Court Justice uttered these words…“I would hope that a wise white male with the richness of his experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a Latina woman...".

Heads would roll my friends. There would be a backlash the likes of which has not been seen in generations.

But not if spoken by the minority. I don’t understand this. What is good for the goose is good for the gander, right? Not so much apparently.

Here is the actual quote.

“I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male...” said Judge Sotomayor.

That comment is perfectly acceptable. That comment will not bar you from becoming a judge in America. Not just a judge but the highest judge in the land. A Supreme Court Justice the president is appointing to make unbiased and unprejudiced decisions for life.

I would hate to be a white male and have to rely on her as my last chance for justice.

Something is wrong. WRONG. with this country.

I have written my senator. I recommend you do the same. I don’t care what side of the isle you find yourself on or what color your skin is. This woman is a self proclaimed bigot and I don’t think she’s the best idea for an impartial lifetime appointment like Supreme Court Justice.

Tomorrow we’ll move back to the light and fluffy fare you usually find here on the Hilltop, but this just ticked me off.

Sadly, I think many people feel the same way about it as the judge. They seem to think that some new injustices will make up for the old ones.

I hadn't heard that. Can I go to the woods with you too? After vacation I always sing "back to life, back to reality" - and I'm not usually happy about it! :-)

Yikes. Something's wrong with that statement. I agree with you.
