Obama Judicial Nominee Who Accused Reagan of ‘Bigotry’ Faces Confirmation Vote


We won the Senate. Is there any reason we are still filling up Federal Judgeships with these sycophants of Obama? She has been floating around out there since last February, why not stall her out for one more year? Are you telling me the GOP can’t insist that Obama find one that is acceptable and willing not to play the race card?

President Obama’s nominee for a federal judgeship in Minnesota accused the Reagan administration of “bigotry” in her writing for the prestigious UCLA Law Review in 1989.

Minnesota Supreme Court Justice Wilhelmina Wright, who is expected to win Senate confirmation to federal District Court in her state next Tuesday, wrote the accusation shortly before graduating Harvard Law School.

Wright accused Chief Justice William Rehnquist and President Reagan of aiding “white people [who] are running and hiding” from desegregated public schools.

“Their mad scramble is aided by a Chief Justice who owned racially restrictive property and a Presidential administration that believes bigotry, poverty, and poor educational opportunities for most public school students are the unavoidable fruits of a ‘thriving’ free market economy.”

Later in the same law review, but while addressing a different topic, Wright wrote that “the sanctity of property and the belief in the hierarchy of races” undergirds racism in America.

Sens. Al Franken and Amy Klobuchar, both D-Minn., have shepherded Wright through the Senate process afterrecommending her nomination to President Obama last February.

    “There is something about the way you look tonight.” That pic looks like Pelosi with a Boehner iodine sun tan. Same cooked brain and all.

    All this caving on the part of the GOP serves to embolden and empower Donald Trump.

    I went to a predominantly black/hispanic high school, by choice. Trade was in that school and I wanted it. Neighborhood fell in 1965 when RFK closed the Brooklyn Navy Yard to save Boston Navy Yard jobs, where the Kennedy power base is, and in Brooklyn, thousands of men suddenly were out of work. People moved. Drugs entered the neighborhood. So, the woman’s argument is moot. I went to that school, an ex-reformatory, by choice, and graduated from there.

      Funny you should mention that neighborhood R III. We lived on Adelphi Street in the Fort Greene section of Brooklyn when i was born in 1950, through 1952. The first time I passed through there in 1969 it would have been suicidal to get out of my VW.
      This witch probably isn’t old enough to remember the unholy mess the forced busing of school children caused back then. And she seems have done pretty well for herself by picking the low hanging fruit from the reverse discrimination tree and sucking the teat of the thriving free market economy for which she has such disdain. The negro liberals want it both ways and they have it.

        Adelphi Street in the 88 Precinct. I caught a handful of robbery teams holed-up there. Today, it is yuppies all over. A friend, Venezia had the gas station on Myrtle at Adelphi, but today that’s gone. Most do not recall when Italians were down there all over the place. From Flushing Avenue to Atlantic Avenue. When things turned bad, only white men there were three types, (a) drug buyers; (b) looking for whores; (c) cops.
        After 1863, giving a hand. In 2016, how much more of a hand do they need, and, whites are discriminated. I was too rich to get assistance for college, and too poor to pay my way through college.
