Really, Judge Sotomayor? “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.”

Let’s turn the tables for a moment, shall we? If a white person implied that he “would reach a better conclusion” on a judiciary matter than someone of another race, based solely on their differing races, would we not call that racism? Quite certainly so. But when a minority makes that assertion, it is not racism? Then what is it? The dictionary defines racism as “a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement.”

So again I say, really, Judge Sotomayor? Sounds like racism to me.
