    This is not her first comment she has made. I suggest you go and do some research on her.

    This is a debate forum. Part of the process is to actually substantiate you own case.

    When I read the initial decision she and another 2 judges left intact, it looked to me that the problem is in the applicable laws. To put it another way, the laws need to be changed. One of our lawyers around here(you guys know who you are) could probably give a more accurate and informative look at the ruling...I know I would be interested.

    I have and I do not see any pattern of racism nor do I see any instance of racism.

    If you are dead set to oppose her you can drag out any comment any ruling any word that she used in the wrong way or in the wrong place or at the wrong time and use that as your cudgel to beat your point to death.

    You can also second guess all of her decisions and find the ones thaat you disagree with and call them racist and un-American and unconstitutional and un-Christian and on and on!!!!!

    Fare enough here you go,

    Rep. Lamar Smith, R-Texas, in a written statement, said Tuesday he's concerned Sotomayor has shown "personal bias based on ethnicity and gender."

    "Judge Sotomayor will need to reassure the country that she will set aside her biases, uphold the rule of law and interpret the Constitution as written, not as she believes it should have been written," said Smith, who will have no vote in the matter, as the confirmation is a Senate matter.

    Sotomayor has a record of being rebuffed by the high court. Of the six decisions she was a part of that came before the high court, five were reversed. In the sixth, the court disagreed with Sotomayor's reasoning.

    In 1999, Sotomayor dissented in a decision to dismiss a case in which a black student claimed his school discriminated against him by transferring him mid-year from first grade to kindergarten. Sotomayor argued that the "lone black child" in the class was not given an "equal chance."

    In 1993, Sotomayor threw out evidence obtained by police in a drug case, because a detective lied to obtain the search warrant prosecutors agreed to a plea bargain. However, during sentencing Sotomayor made controversial statements by criticizing the five-year mandatory sentence, calling it an "abomination" that the defendant did not deserve.

    Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., later grilled her on this, suggesting it showed disrespect for the law, during her confirmation hearing a decade ago for the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals.

    Are you calling her a liar, then? Her own words reveal her to believe she creates policy and Ricci versus DeStefano and U.S. versus Sanchez-Villar doubly confirms it.

    As an aside, I suggest you see a shrink about your odd anal fixation. And maybe a proctologist, too, for the foot I just shoved up your ass.
    In Ricci vs. Destafano, ( around here we call it the the Firefighters vs the MAYOR OF NEW HAVEN ) is a case that is currently pending before the SUPREMES. In this case Sotmayor agreed wih lower courts. Sotomayor was one of a panel of judges who were sympathetic to the plaintiff's position but concluded that a specific employment law hadn't been violated.

    So if she is a racist for ruling with the others on the panel then most if not all of the panel are racist. Do you really think that we have that many racists in our Judicial system ?

    ok so you don't like the ruling she made in the lone Black child case so this makes her a racist ?

    BTW Sotomayor is not Black
