Justice Sonia Sotomayor

It was never in any real doubt, with Republicans trying to nitpick her record and trying to say that she’s a reverse racist, even to get a rise out of her. Who did they think she was, Charo?

All that nitpicking, of course, is a lot of white male bias and fear- mongering about the colored folks taking over the country, and whites being driven out of their “rightful” places. It’s not unlike some of the white fear and hysteria whipped up by the right wing punditocracy surrounding the Obama-Gates-Crowley-Cambridge Police mess.

No doubt, even more giant steps are going to be taken in months to come. I feel as if these seven-and-a-half months of the Obama Administration have been more like five years, but accomplishments like this are worth throwing a fist in the air.

She is a wise Latina.

You go, girl!

A luta continua!

  1. Yeah it’s so funny that they were trying to claim she’s too emotional, but then she came across as the reasonable one, and the right wingers were throwing a fit! I’ve contributing to a timeline about Sotomayor’s life where people can easily and quickly see the major events of her life: http://timelines.com/topics/sonia-sotomayor.
