Sonia Sotomayor's Ricci v. DeStefano ruling
Judge Sonia Sotomayor basically upheld the decision by the City of New Haven Connecticut to discriminate against firemen based on race. Here it is again
“Judge Sotomayor was a member of a three judge panel that decided in favor of the city's decision to throw out the results of a promotion exam because not enough minority candidates scored well.
So I guess the left is going to try and paint conservatives as “racists” for bringing up the decision of Sotomayor. This is why I’ve never been a fan of Affirmative Action. In this situation, a racial group was discriminated against merely for doing well on an exam. Where is the rationality in this? A little interesting tidbit was left out of the story and not reported by the media. A certain percentage of “minorities” did score in the upper percentage range on the New Haven Firefighter’s promotional exam. The minorities that scored well and ultimately had their tests thrown out were”HISPANICS”. This is the dirty little secret that the media and the left doesn’t want people to know. It would seem that Sonia Sotomayor decision actually discriminated against fellow Hispanics. I wonder how other Hispanics would feel about Sotomayor knowing that she in essence screwed over other Hispanics, because blacks didn’t score well enough on the exam? Getting back to the exam, I don’t appreciate nor accept the racism inflicted among the firefighters merely for doing the right thing by studying hard for the exam. The actions of the City of New Haven demonstrated what I've known all along about liberals. It reflects a pattern often used by the left in similar situations in regards to academic tests and promotions. Liberals believe in “equal outcomes”, but life isn’t about equal results. They believe that “minorities” aren’t capable of passing the same tests as their whites counterparts. These are the same people that believe blacks can’t learn the same way whites can. Its liberals that support black kids learning “Ebonics”. Liberals claim that the S.A.T exam is “racist” against blacks. I’m surprised that Sonia Sotomayor didn’t rule that the New Haven Firemen promotional exam was “racist” based on the grounds that more minorities didn’t score in the upper percentage range then whites counterparts. I have a question though that nobody on the left can answer. They keep saying that she will bring "real life experience" to the bench as a Supreme Court Justice. What does that mean exactly and how does it apply to the job?
