Imagine if a President said he was only going to choose a white woman for his Supreme Court nomination? Cries of racism would be lodged from the left, but when President Joe Biden called for his next Supreme Court pick to match the racial and gender criteria of a black woman only, there was applause. There was applause for a President who unilaterally excluded all other women of color, including Asians, Latinas and indigenous people to be considered for the spot.
If you are a prominent lawyer or judge in America who happens to be anything but a black woman, you need not apply because the job is not open to you.
Biden has come a long way from his early days in office when he was concerned about mixing black and white children on public school busses during America’s period of desegregation.
“Unless we do something about this, my children are going to grow up in a jungle, the jungle being a racial jungle with tensions having built so high that it is going to explode at some point,” Biden said of the desegregation of public school bussing in 1977.
Now as Biden, a man with one foot in the 1960s and the other in the 2020s tries to evolve from his past into a more progressive and leftist version of himself, he has gone full-tilt racist.
Backing Biden is New York State Senator Chuck Schumer who spread misinformation that before 1981, the Supreme Court was a body made of all white men…except African American Thurgood Marshall was appointed to the court in 1967, becoming the first man of color to serve on the bench.
While it is of course time for a more diverse Supreme Court that is representative of the population and demographics of America, for Joe Biden to unilaterally blacklist other women of color for the spot is a disservice to all Americans.
