    Sure. If the Democrats are in charge, stop and frisk is just hunky dory, never mind the Constitutional issues. If Republicans are in charge, then it is obviously racist, as most of those being frisked are black.

    Does anyone but me find it humorous that her name is Lynch?
    I keep calling her "Loretta Lynn" but that's the coal miner's daughter.

    That is a scary statement; it is not who is selected (or how?) to be stopped and frisked that matters here folks, but who is doing the stopping and frisking that counts. Hmm...

    Remember, in order to make sure we carry forward the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr, it's important that we continue to judge people based on the color of their skin rather than the content of their character or their particular abilities to do a job well or impartially.


    I have to try to retrieve this item from the local media.....we recently had a new appointment of a woman into a high court position. The article talked about her being a single mother, her work in family court, earning her law degree as a single mom.....

    all impressive stuff.

    What they never mentioned is she is an Indo-Canadian, of East Indian descent. Not even mentioned, and yet its a given in the US that Obama appoints based ion skin color your post can stand for so long completely unchallenged. It is that accepted by all that racial issues and racism runs deep in the American fabric to this day.

    fact is, you're right too. and that's the saddest part

    Who is she?

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama is expected to pick Brooklyn prosecutor Loretta Lynch for his next attorney general, CNN reported on Friday, a move that would give the top U.S. law enforcement role to a low-key prosecutor with deep experience in both civil rights and corporate fraud cases.

    Lynch, 55, the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, would be the first African-American woman to hold the job if nominated by Obama and confirmed by the Senate.

    White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Obama had yet to decide on his nominee. Asked about reports that a decision could come soon, he said he had no specific details on timing but that no announcement was planned on Friday.

    I haven't the faintest idea who she is. But if the president wants her he probably should have her. That is unless she has something horrendous in her past. When it comes to cabinet positions I believe any president should have whom he wants. After all, whom he chooses reflects directly upon him. Besides any cabinet member is going to do exactly what the president wishes anyway.

    Judges are a different deal.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    That may be a good comfirmation hearing question.

    Yep.
    That's what I got out of her statement. Do you agree?
