You have to wonder if Obama’s pick for the Supreme Court, Sonia Sotomayor, is another identity politics racist. Consider two examples:
First, her ruling on a “reverse discrimination” case. It’s pretty outrageous how she handled it. FYI: There is no such thing as reverse discrimination. Only discrimination. And that sounded like a clear case.
Then her comment that ““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 who hasn’t lived that life.”
Well first of all, that statement isn’t very wise. Wise people don’t call themselves wise. And only a fool thinks their race means anything in the real world. Race doesn’t give people any insights. Maybe your life experience does, but there are a lot of clueless people of every race.
My concern with her isn’t just her racial views, but her position on things like the second amendment and statism. So far, I have not been too encouraged by what I have read. She was a Clinton pick for teh Supreme Court but he was not able to get her in.
UPDATE: More to chew on.
