Irish citizens were discriminated against not because of their color, race, creed, religion, or sex — but because of their National Origin.

They were accidentally born in the wrong place So no job for you.

Biden and The Supreme Court Pick

President Biden has said that he intends to select the “first black woman” to the US Supreme Court.

I commend that action — If the first black woman nominee is the very best jurist available, I have no problem with that at all.

I take issue that all other jurists be they Irish, Samoan, American Indian, Asian, Puerto Rican, or Antarctican being excluded from consideration simply because none of them happen to be a black woman.

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964: Makes it illegal to discriminate against someone on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin or sex. This law also protects employees against retaliation for going forward with a claim regarding discrimination in the workplace.

The last time I checked Supreme Court Justices are paid employees of the people of the United States. Supreme Court justices make $265,600 a year. The chief justice gets $277,700.

I’d really like to get my money’s worth without the mythical political correctness.

All possible candidates should be considered fairly, regardless of their personal appearance.

This Has Been Done Before

Justice Sandra Day O’Connor was appointed to the Supreme Court by President Ronald Reagan and served from 1981 until 2006.

Reagan wanted to nominate and confirm the first woman on the court in its 190-year history.
