Confirm Wise Latina Woman Judge Sonia Sotomayor Now sign now

I strongly support and urge immediate Senate confirmation of President Barack Obamas nominee for the US Supreme Court: wise Latina woman, Judge Sonia Sotomayor, who now sits on U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.

At present, the US Supreme Court has nine members, of whom seven are white men. This is unfair and unbalanced. According to the US Census, the nation is less than 33\% white male, while it is approximately 51\% female, 15\% Latino and 13\% Black. Although white males are the minority of America, they remain the vast majority of the US Supreme Court, just as was the case before women and minorities gained the right to vote.

It is impossible in a pluralistic society for a Court comprised of 78\% white men to make wise, reasoned and sound decisions affecting the lives of a nation which is less than 33\% white male. A wise and just Supreme Court requires a diversity of experiences, with the participation of representatives of the majority of Americans.

For far too long, there has been a quota system at the United States Supreme Court. The de facto quota system required that all or the vast majority of the nine members of the Court be white males. In the history of the nation, there have never been more than three members of the court who were not white males at any one time. The anachronistic white male quota system is no longer tenable as the nation strives to treat all Americans equally and to have a government all of whose branches have the consent and participation of the nations diverse populace.

The US Supreme Court cannot function wisely, justly, and fairly without the full participation of wise women and wise members of the nations minority groups, including the nations largest minority Latinos. Therefore, we urge our elected representatives in the US Senate to immediately confirm the wise Latina woman who has earned our respect and support: soon-to-be US Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor.
