I seem to remember the Democrats full court press on Clarence Thomas. And Justice Roberts. Neither of whom came close to publicly saying anything as racially charged as Sotomayor.
Are you kidding?? Thomas' infamous "this is a public lynching" quote is about as racially charged as it gets.
"This is not an opportunity to talk about difficult matters privately or in a closed environment. This is a circus. It's a national disgrace. And from my standpoint, as a black American, it is a high-tech lynching for uppity blacks who in any way deign to think for themselves, to do for themselves, to have different ideas, and it is a message that unless you kowtow to an old order, this is what will happen to you. You will be lynched, destroyed, caricatured by a committee of the U.S. Senate rather than hung from a tree." - Clarence Thomas
But please, let's keep talking about the "wise Latina" comment
8. Hey, if you know the right places to hide, I'm sure you could get away with it. Not that I have...
Make sure you have your volume down next time.
This may just be my personal experience, but I've come across many people like these when I was in college. So I was just wondering if its likely for me to still see these things in law school...
1. 'I-am-too-smart-for-this class/school' kids in class who always interrupts the class by 'participating too much'(often talking nonsense)
2. Drunk people(usually asleep) in class (I once belonged to this category, meh )
3. Macho dudes demonstrating their manliness by engaging in public fist-fighting
4. People wearing pajamas/underwears to class
5.People who literally lives inside of the library and the frustrated librarian lady
6. The ones that never show up in class but still manages to get by
7. Your neighbor who always seems to be high
8. Porn-watchers in the library
