Today’s article will be a brief one. After illustrating some irony I will state the obvious.
Friday President Biden nominated Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court. Normally that would have not only dominated the day’s news but the entire weekend’s news cycle. It didn’t.
Judge Jackson is extremely qualified for the post. Her resume is very similar to many current members’ resumes with one notable exception; she is a Black. The biggest right wing criticism to date – and I expect it to continue – is that Biden had a political agenda of appointing a Black female and that excluded many otherwise qualified candidates. That is hogwash! Does anyone think that George H.W. Bush would have nominated Clarence Thomas to replace Thurgood Marshall if his skin was not black? More recently, does anyone think Donald Trump would have nominated Amy Coney Barrett to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg if she were a he?
Because of the land war in Europe, Jackson didn’t get the press coverage she normally would. Black women are the heart and soul of the Democratic Party’s ground game. Have been for decades and many would claim never seem to get their dues. While that appears to be changing, the press around this case does not illustrate it .
In simple conclusion I call on the Senate to quickly confirm Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court and look forward to seeing her on the high court’s bench next fall. The vote to confirm is obvious to all but racists and or sexists.
