Sonia Sotomayor, Racist
She talks about how being a Latina woman has enhanced her perspective -- racist! She made a decision supporting the city and against some non-black firefighters' claims of racism -- she hates white people! She wants people to correctly pronounce her name -- double racist!!
Thank God the New York Times has actually looked at and analyzed Judge Sotomayor's record.
Here's what they found:
"Of the 96 (race-related cases while serving as an appeals judge), Judge Sotomayor and the panel rejected the claim of discrimination roughly 78 times and agreed with the claim of discrimination 10 times; the remaining 8 involved other kinds of claims or dispositions. Of the 10 cases favoring claims of discrimination, 9 were unanimous. (Many, by the way, were procedural victories rather than judgments that discrimination had occurred.) Of those 9, in 7, the unanimous panel included at least one Republican-appointed judge. In the one divided panel opinion, the dissent’s point dealt only with the technical question of whether the criminal defendant in that case had forfeited his challenge to the jury selection in his case.
"So Judge Sotomayor rejected discrimination-related claims by a margin of roughly 8 to 1."
