Hope for America? Maybe not. But when the time comes, perhaps more Americans will remain faithful than we sometimes believe.
So 76% don't want the president to automatically exclude all candidates who are men, and any women who don't have black skin, just because they are men or don't have black skin. Imagine that. When we've officially been taught for two years that we must embrace equity and reject equality (that is, treat people differently based on group label rather than everyone the same), that's amazing.
The Left wishes for racial segregation and political oppression. Right now, it's had its way, at least among the elites, leaders and institutions and corporations of our nation. Nonetheless, perhaps America has not forsaken wisdom, even if so many in our seats of leadership have buckled and given up and embraced the bigotry. It's not a war won, or even a battle. But it's at least a small bright spot in the darkness.
Oh, for those who say But Reagan! Yes, Reagan made the pledge that he would nominate a women to the SCOTUS. This was because no woman had ever been a Supreme Court justice. It was a nomination that would often haunt conservatives in the years go come. In hindsight, I think Reagan was as wrong then, even if it would have been a major breakthrough (we have, in fact, had women and black justices before Biden's pledge). Given the track record, it appears posturing like this eventually seems to set up more bad than good.
If you look at the numbers, there are something like 50,000 black, female, Democratic lawyers in the USA. Most of those will be in corporate or criminal law, but it's safe to say there are at least 1000. Of those 1000 black, female Democrats with law degrees, could a plausible candidate be found? No doubt. That's not the real problem; the real problem is that Biden is not searching for the best of 1000+, he's being given a list of no more than 5 and being told to choose from them. The problem behind the problem is the people making that list.ReplyDelete
Sorry, I meant "it's safe to say there are at least 1000 in Constitutional law."Delete
That's a good point. But as with Reagan, I think we lose when we accept, much less proclaim, that we will henceforth exclude entire swaths of the population simply because of their skin color or gender. It's a half step forward, and ten steps back.Delete
