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," Sotomayor said in a speech at 2001 at the University of California, Berkeley, law school. She made similar statements at other such events.So she stated outright that she is biased against white males in part due to their experiences. Yet Donald Trump cannot point out the [not so wise] Latino presiding over his case who has "experiences" which ill dispose him for sitting in judgment over Trump. The very definition of hypocrisy. Of course when confronted with said blatant racism Sotomayor said the following as clean up:
"I want to state upfront, unequivocally and without doubt: I do not believe that any ethnic, racial or gender group has an advantage in sound judging," she said. "I do believe every person has an equal opportunity to be a good and wise judge, regardless of their background or life experience." "The words I chose, taking the rhetorical flourish, it was a bad idea," she said. "I do understand that there are some who have read this differently, and I understand why they might have concern."Yeah, sure you do. Sure we can't read what's plainly said. Sure. But to the point of the post. We know full well there are plenty of Spanish speaking crackers in Mexico and elsewhere. Simply because one is not a white American doesn't make one not white. And just because one has a nationality or ethnic background that is south of the US border [sic] doesn't make one NOT WHITE. What Trump, and really all of us needs is for someone to spell this out clearly.
