The BIZARRO Martin Luther King dream is being realized by President Obama and Justice Sotomayor. Justice Sotomayor and President Obama essentially say “Judge someone based on the color of their skin, not the content of their character.” Her repeated comments that “I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn’t lived that life” (Judge Sonia Sotomayor, 2001 and others) show a temperament clearly unsuited for any court, let alone the highest court in the land. However, the politicians were much more concerned about not being labeled a racist, sexist than calling a racist, sexist, bigot what she is.
President Obama, it does not matter that Justice Sotomayor is of Hispanic origin or a woman. Just as it does not matter where President Obama’s relatives hailed from. Justice Sotomayor, it does not matter that you are of Hispanic heritage or a woman. It is terrible that both the President and a Supreme Court Justice would be so racist as to continue to worry about the color of someone’s skin, so sexist as to care about someone’s gender, and so bigoted as to worry about someone’s heritage, but there you have it: racist, sexist, bigots for both the Supreme Court and the Presidency.
