    I didn't know anything at all about Loretta Lynch, so I Googled. She is a U.S. Attorney who was nominated by Obama who has overseen federal prosecutions in Brooklyn, Queens, Long Island, and Staten Island, and she has experience in prosecuting police officers. Am. Lit./English degree from Harvard, ditto her J.D. Loretta Lynch - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Because just like SCOTUS appointments, that's what's important
    Are you saying there aren't black women who are qualified for this job, or does it have to be a white man? I think you are just showing your true colors.

    back then blacks got .5 added to their GPA and 130 points added to their LSAT scores

    Great, another Attorney General with close ties to the financial sector.

    That is what bigots do. Of course I'm saying this in general terms, all posters here are not bigots, but it does play well with our right-wing nuts here.

    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 don't believe that MLK ever said anything like that.

    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.
    You're comparing an appointment by one man, who has not only shown a bias in the past, but is the same skin color, with an election at state level by a majority of the available vote of presumably mixed demographics and skin color.

    That's just misleading.

    Face it, the stance of "innocence" about Obama is gone, you cannot play that fiddle and expect anyone to dance. The man is a cold-hearted politico who would slice his grandmother from asshole to earlobes for a 2% increase in the polls.
    He lied about Iraq and created a new war. he lied about Obamacare and caused suffering to 27 million Americans. He has never accepted responsibility for one thing that's gone wrong, and is grudgingly observant of the fact he has just been handed the single most humiliating mid term defeat in modern history.

    His cabinet is loaded with with toadies and lickspittle lackies, yes people and angry blacks.

    Frankly, after the heightened racial tensions of the last few years, and the deepened chasm of suspicion and hate fostered by his administration , the man is an idiot to appoint another black. It shows once again he is distant, out of touch with the nation, stubborn and self centered.

    There's a reason he didn't announce this before the vote.....because he would have lost even more votes and the son of a bitch knew it and did it anyway.

    I don't see why the grapes would be sour. I do, however, see why someone would comment on the advantage given to those measurably less qualified by giving them points on the LSAT.

    The "right wing congress" isn't the subject of this thread.


    She is the person that Obama has selected to fill the job and she is certainly qualified for it.
