This woman is Not fit to be on the Supreme Court. She is SOOO bias and Racist that she will only bring shame and disgrace to the Supreme Court. We are wathcing to see what reps and senators vote her in, so we can Vote them OUT

maggieb, if you basing your opinion on a judge being Bias and Racist, go back and take a history lesson of all previous Supreme Court justices of the United States decisions then make this statement again.

After some reading, Ms. Sotomayor, more than likely will come across as a kitten in contrast to others.

She is a Latina woman, who obviously had different life experiences than you, including myself, but it does NOT mean she interprets the U.S. Constitution and its laws with extremist views.

Don't label until you walked in that person's shoes.
