    I do agree. I read it and reread it a few times, and that's my takeaway as well. I suppose that will be clarified in the confirmation hearings. I hope it isn't what we think it is but I'm so soured on people lately.

    Seriously? So you don't care to learn anything about her; you're just assuming that it's her skin color that is the reason she's nominated.

    Stop playing the race card.

    Don't know anything about her, but it's hard to imagine we could get a worse AG than Holder. Though, Obama is great at picking incompetent people. How hard is it to pick someone that will uphold and defend the Constitution and enforce laws?

    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...

    Yeah, I don't care for that statement at all. An unconstitutional search is an unconstitutional search.

    Im getting real tired of the orwellian statements made by Obama's white house, and his potential appointees.

    For this administration? Yup. We got word as soon as Holder said he was stepping down that they were looking for a black woman. Not a great jurist. not someone who could impartially apply the law. Not someone who could restore any kind of trust in a politicized Justice Department. A black woman.

    Because just like SCOTUS appointments, that's what's important

    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
    It's more important for some than others. but yeah.

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

    Sounds a bit....I don't know. WTF was that supposed to mean?
    Is this really a difficult concept to grasp? She stated that it's a tool that has its uses, but can also be abused, therefore, the usefullness and appropriateness is largely dependent on the officer in questions's motives. Simple stuff really.

    It is so hard to really read what one's thoughts are behind their actions . I would find it hard to believe that after reading her credentials he missed the part she was black. Or he simply thought she would be a good mix regardless of her skin color.
    The same question can be raised at election of the Utah congresswoman Mia Love. Was she voted because she was indeed black which would allow Republicans bragging rights to say they have a black congresswoman in all white Utah? Or simply she would be a breath of fresh air rather than the same old sold out politicians. Who knows, perhaps a little bit of both.
