Biden declared that he’ll put a black woman on the Supreme Court. But apparently, not everyone is happy to see the president narrow the field based on gender or race. Even Democrats want to see a bit more consideration for an appointment that lasts a lifetime.
Last week, much speculation floated around insinuating that Kamala Harris could be Biden’s nomination. That idea has yet to be scrapped. But most Americans, like me, hope and pray we don’t move that thot-o-bot to the highest court in the land.
Fox News reports:
More than three-quarters (76%) of Americans want President Joe Biden to consider all potential nominees to replace outgoing Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer, according to a recent ABC News-Ipsos poll.
The poll comes after Biden said Thursday that he will announce his nominee before the end of February, and that the candidate will be a Black woman. Among Democrats, 54% supported considering all nominees regardless of race and gender. Just 23% of those polled wanted Biden to restrict his list of nominees to Black women.
The poll, which was conducted Jan. 28-29 with Ipsos Public Affairs’ Knowledge Panel among a random national sample of 510 adults, also found that 43% believe that the Supreme Court is partisan, and that justices rule “on the basis of their partisan political views.”
Other finding from the poll were unflattering toward the president, who earned low approval numbers on issues ranging from inflation — with 69% disapproving — to surging crime and gun violence. Just 1% of those polled said the state of the economy is “excellent.”
I’d really like to meet this 1%. I have a feel that they’re either the mega-rich and they don’t notice the drastic inflation plaguing everyone else, or they don’t speak the language and thus, didn’t understand the question.
Identity Politics at Play
Clearly, Biden is promoting “identity politics” in the Supreme Court, which directly contradicts the court’s purpose. The judicial branch is never supposed to be political. And while judges do have conservative or liberal leanings, the whole idea is for them to provide unbiased analyses of laws and policies as they apply to the constitution. But Biden’s looking for people who will continue to turn a blind eye to the leftist assault on America. Especially as it applies to the Big Cheat.
It’s quite funny to read the replies on Twitter. The same leftists who lied about Justice Kavanaugh and tried to prevent his confirmation to the Supreme Court are now shouting “this is Biden’s choice!”
Oh just stop. Biden is POTUS & this is his choice. He’s shown over&over he wants a gov’t that represents America. Look at his cabinet! We have never had a Black woman on SCOTUS & it’s long past time. Everyone’s white hoods are showing. There is zero reason to make this an issue

However, common sense managed to insert itself here and there.
Serious question, is it legal to say you will hire someone purely based on sex and race? I feel like the President is breaking the civil rights act with this one.
he could just nominate someone black and female without making public remarks about not wanting to hire other races.

But this isn’t about whether someone is qualified for the job or not. It’s about saying, the nominee has to fit certain physical attributes.
