    It has nothing to do with race. It has more to do with equal representation of the way our society has evolved and will continue to evolve.

    Stuck in the past is not a good place to be.

    Unqualified? No but her racism and sexism should make her disqualified.

    So you feel that ones race and sex should have bearing on how they judge rather than the law itself? Law is objective not subjective, she's disqualified next.

    Yeah, time to try that third world approach of socialism and mediocrity.

    Instead of changing America, why not move to a country that suits you? I know that's a crazy concept, but really if America sucks being a country of individual freedom, personal liberty and it's up to you whether you succeed or fail isn't your gig..

    GTFO.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Being a racist and a sexist disqualifies one from being a Judge let alone a Supreme Court Justice.

She's overcome with elation about this, has zero shame, and makes no apologies from what I can tell. Her biggest concern seems to be limited to getting more people of color and women on the bench so that together they can exact change and measure that change with the acuity with which they proudly measure skin color I suppose.

    She's all about being Latino. Beaming with her Latino-ness and her femaleness and how she can't wait for that to have it's effect on the bench and her rulings.

    Heaven help us. As a woman I'm embarrassed.

    I can only imagine if a man went on about his manliness and his cultural upbringing of steak and potatoes and how he positively can't wait for his dick and pale skin to have an effect on his rulings, an inevitable effect, one he is proud of.

    The speech reeks of, "Do not be blind to color. COLOR IS ALL THAT GOD DAMN MATTERS...that and HAVING A VAGINA!

    Good freaking lord.
    So you are upset somehow that speaking at an event dedicated to diversity in the law profession, that she talks about being a women and a latina in the law profession? Wow, can't understand why she would talk about that....

    I know of course not Latino women are more qualified to make certain judgments than white males, that is not racist or sexist at all.

    Oh and media does matter but not to mediamatters.

    Are you suggesting that her being "latino American" makes her "third world"?


    You would prefer the old white fart Neaderthal way of doing things?

    No I'm upset about how she talks about it. And how she completely misses the point which should be that in the eyes of the law we are all equal and a female judge or a latino judge is as equally capable of handing down rulings. Justice is color blind. I expect her to tell those kids that she is proud of where she came from and how she got where she is now because it shows that skin color matters less, that having a vagina matters less.

    What she did instead was the opposite. She told those kids skin color is everything, being latino will be paramount to what she brings to the bench, etc.

    Rather than be a model of someone who has overcome racism and gender stereotypes she has chosen to be an anchor for keeping the two alive for as long as she lives and breathes. She gets no kudos.
