Schumer Will Vote ‘No’ On Judicial Nominee Because He Is White – Daily Caller, 2018/02/28
The Democrat from New York said on the Senate floor that he could not vote to approve Marvin Quattlebaum for a vacancy on the U.S. District Court for the District of South Carolina because he is a white man replacing two black Obama nominees.
“The nomination of Marvin Quattlebaum speaks to the overall lack of diversity in President Trump’s selections for the federal judiciary,” Schumer complained. “Quattlebaum replaces not one, but two scuttled Obama nominees who were African American.”
“As of February 14th, 83 percent of the President Trump’s confirmed nominees were male, 92 percent were white. That represents the lowest share of non-white candidates in three decades,” he continued. “It’s long past time that the judiciary starts looking a lot more like the America it represents. Having a diversity of views and experiences on the federal bench is necessary for the equal administration of justice.”
What did ML King say? …something about content of character, not color of skin? Not so much with Schumer…
Race is just a tool in the political toolbox to increase their leverage. It could be racism that favors blacks, or racism that favors whites. It doesn’t matter. What matters is how much leverage can be gained in their favor. They will throw whomever under bus for more leverage to help win their issues.
