Dems Pitch New Circus Tent : SCOTUS Nomination

Joe Biden has reiterated his plan to put Sheneneh on the SCOTUS bench. He has explicitly made it clear that white women and men of all races need not apply for his Supreme Court list. No Sir!  By reducing a Supreme Court nominee to their race and gender might pass for “woke” for some these days.  But even though it’s being done by Joe Biden and the Democratic Party, it’s surely not “progressive” in any meaningful sense of the word.  This rigid use of race as a qualification doesn’t help diversity one bit.  In fact, it would hurt whatever African American woman Biden ended up selected. She would no doubt be qualified in her own right but would be forever viewed as diversity pick.

By Biden's word, she would go down in history not as a trailblazer but as the token black woman Biden picked after disqualifying most of the candidate pool through identity politics. This would be an undeserved insult to the potential nominee, who may well have been selected anyway on her own merits in an open process. Even worse, she'd be forever known as connected with Joe Biden.
