Is she Bill Lann Lee? (Check this excerpt from two comments, posted here
by yours truly.)
What baffles me is how her personal background influenced her ruling in Ricci v. DeStefano. As reported by Mark Davis and Slate's Emily Bazelon, the ruling upheld promotion policies that discriminate against whites and Hispanics in favor of blacks.
Actually I’m not really all that baffled. Long time ago an online acquaintance coined the term “PC points.” Political Correctness has a hierarchy; some ideals outrank others. I believe that to Sotomayor, as well as Bill Lann Lee, leftist forms of racial discrimination are too important for the civil rights of their respective ethnicities to get in the way. PC collateral damage, as it were.
Or is she Archie Bunker? Read the top item in James Taranto's Best of the Web.
