I don't believe I ever laughed at you..and I just wanted to be clear that I wasn't attacking you..
No, you did NOT give the impression that you thought there were no well educated non-white people.. My point was that there are MANY, but that doesn't mean any great numbers would bother trying to attain positions in traditionally white male filled official roles because traditionally they would not be allowed to, one way or another..
My point was also that if equal opportunity was a reality, there would be even MORE well educated People of Color in this country..
I am neither Democrat nor Republican..and I don't expect anyone to follow any party line if they don't actually agree with it..but sadly, many don't bother to think at all..they just follow..
But this all is other than the question of what racism *is* to you, that you would say Sotomayor is racist..If you dont' intend to answer that question, that is fine..I'll stop asking.
