Re: Judge Sonia Sotomayor ~ views

The first thing that raised my antenna was her ruling in the New Haven firefighter's case. The chief complainant was Frank Ricci, a person who, by any measure, met the test of falling into the category of 'Persons With Disabilities'. Then, one of the other 20 complainants was a hispanic gentleman. [True, he was listed under the ethnic category as 'white', but his race is, inarguably hispanic.]. What struck me was that the 20 firefighters were not just 'white men' as the media portrayed them to be.

Moreover, I have a particular problem with her view that New York State violated the rights of minorities by refusing to allow convicted felons [who happened to be mostly hispanic and black] the right to vote. Now, then. I never agreed with that decision because, as far as I was concerned, these felons had given up all rights to be members of society. This one, which preceded the New Haven case, flew under my radar because I thouht it was just a senior moment she was experiencing.

The straw that broke the camel's back, so to speak, was her statements about a 'wise Latina woman'. BINGO, I thought. The nature of the beast will out. She is, in my opinion, prejudiced, biased and racist. Her history supports my belief, I believe.
