Joe Biden Appointing More Federal Black Women Judges Than Any Other President

[QUOTE]There have been 11 Black women confirmed as appeals court judges since 1789. Biden is already responsible for three of them. The only president who appointed that many was Bill Clinton, and it took him eight years.

Interesting that all three of Biden's confirmed picks to the federal bench have been black women. He is presumably laying the groundwork for nominating one of them if there is a vacancy on the Supreme Court by giving them federal court experience (which 8 of the current 9 Supreme Court Justices had before their appointment).

I thought justice was blind.

Biden is something special. He's righting as many wrongs as he can. LBJ did this too. Great men seize the moment. Obama was cute with a great wife. Don't sleep on old Joe. He's reconfiguring society. There isn't much time left and he knows it.

As a "Woman of Color" Elizabeth Warren should finally be happy about something!

Yes R2, justice is totally blind. Which is why about 70% of Trump's judicial appointments were white men. Because justice is totally blind.

Let's hope that isn't why he's appointing them. Let's hope they are also well qualified for the job.

I realize it's not the same as choosing a brain surgeon based on race or sex but it gets close.

Affirmative action rears its head again.

by Anonymousreply 7July 21, 2021 2:18 AM

10 of Trump's judicial appointments were rated not qualified by the ABA. So far all of Biden's have been rated qualified or highly qualified. But yeah, sure, suddenly we're worried about qualifications and affirmative action after Trump was appointing mediocre white men in numbers double their percentage of the population.

I know DL is full of racist trolls, but you could TRY to be more subtle about it.

R8, some people have ALWAYS been worried about qualifications. It's exactly why the ABA rates nominees, idjit.

Find me the threads/posts fretting about Trump appointing white men who might be unqualified but he's just appointing them as affirmative action for white men.

Now go on and tell me we should be concerned about whether Biden's cabinet appointees are "qualified."

[quote] Affirmative action rears its head again.

There are 890 federal court judges. In the history of the court only 11 have been black. President Biden appointed 3 black women to the federal courts. But yeah it’s not affirmative action when only white males are hired and promoted. It’s “meritocracy” because only human beings with white skin and penises are qualified for anything.

So other minorities don’t count? Where are the Latinos, Asians, and Native Americans ?

This is absolutely not accurate. Try again.

Obviously the poster meant black female judges.

Well, R18, we are, but not because Biden is appointing black women judges. Not even because of Biden.

by Anonymousreply 20July 21, 2021 12:17 PM

Dumbass at R14, these three black women aren't his only appointees.

That's still not accurate.

There are CURRENTLY 47 African American female judges on the bench out of 229 total African American judges currently sitting. (well, as of end of 2020).

There are actually currently 887 federal judges appointed under Article III.

There certainly need to be more female judges but AA judges are well represented.
