Sotomayor and the firefighters

I'm sure that all virtually all Americans (except a few small nut-job fringe groups) would agree that no one should be discriminated against because of their skin color.

I would hope that the vast majority of Americans would agree that no one should be appointed to the Supreme Court who believes in discrimination due to skin color.

Yesterday the Supreme Court affirmed these principles by ruling that the city of New Haven discriminated against a group of white firefighters by denying them promotion due to their race.

Barack Obama's Supreme Court nominee, Sonia Sotomayor, sided with the city of New Haven in favor of racism.

Sonia Sotomayor, therefore, has absolutely no business being on the Supreme Court, and it is appalling that Barack Obama does not remove her from consideration.
