Supreme Court pick

Obama is on the news right now, with his teleprompter allowing him to give a smooth speech without ah, and uh every few words (unlike the speeches I've seen him give without the teleprompter), and the talking heads on the news were discussing his pick for the spot, and brought up one of Sotomayor's speeches at UC Berkely in 2001. This lady believes a Latina lady has more to bring to the table than a white guy. To my mind, this is racist. This is putting the color of your skin above your ability. African-american, Latina, whatever. If you're an American, just say THAT. You're not a hyphenated anything. Sure, we can see your skin might be light or dark. Big fat hairy deal. Get over it. Suck it up, and get on with life. Plow ahead, and make the most of your life, and get ahead. Get the best education you can, study hard, and make it. Don't slack off and blame others for what you failed to do. That's the suckers way out. HERE is the link to an article talking about the Supreme Court pick of Obama's, Sotomayor.
