Community rights

"The failure of this administration to nominate a Hispanic judge to the Supreme Court is a slap in the face to all those highly qualified Hispanic judges that dutifully serve on our federal courts across the nation," said Raul Yzaguirre, former president of the National Council of La Raza. "Our community continues to contribute to the greatness of this nation and yet, we are ignored for a vital role on our third branch of governance."

If there's something wrong with the current nominee's qualifications, why not just say so? Why not list some people who are better qualified and compare their qualifications to the nominee? Vague generalities about being ignored don't really make a compelling argument.

A "community" (Hispanic or otherwise) truly interested in justice wouldn't be worrying about the color of the nominees' skin but the quality of the nominee's character and her qualifications.
