Why It Is Critical That the African American Community Unite Behind Sonia Sotomayor

Commented May 30, 2009 at 21:06:02 in Politics

“Also, the accusations referring to her as a racist are simply ludicrous. Her statement which has been widely critiqued was only to say that those who've endured a greater diversity of experiences are more likely to make more thoughtful and sound judgments than others who haven't. Now, whether one would like to accept it or not, the life of a minority in America is a different experience in American society, for better or for worse. As long as each Supreme Court Justice has studied American law, practiced it successfully, and shown a history of upholding American values of freedom and diversity. I would love to see a Male, Female, White, Black, Latino, Asian, Native American, Pacific Islander, Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, and other type of Justice serve on the highest court. I would love to see a Supreme Court that represents the many different perspectives held in American society. This will allow the many citizens of America to rest, assured that their Supreme Court Justices will consider the affects their rulings may have on all of America's citizens and have their best interest at heart.”

Why It Is Critical That the African American Community Unite Behind Sonia Sotomayor

“I agree that Sotomayor is extremely qualified. To avoid being redundant and explain why she is qualified, I'd like to point out that many of her opponents, as opinionated and well-versed as they are, have yet to point out how she is unfit for the position. Yes, they say she is overly-concerned with race, a statement I disagree with, but they have yet to argue the validity of her experiences as prosecutor and a judge. This brings me to believe that they cannot seem to find one flaw in her other than her pride in her race, and her support and encouragement of other minorities, which doesn't sound like a flaw to me.”
