NAACP Head Skeptical Of Judicial Selections (demands that all whites be cut out of the list)
http://www.nwaonline.net/articles/2007/07/05/news/062307dcjudgefolo.txt ^

WASHINGTON -- The head of the Arkansas NAACP on Friday challenged 3rd District Rep. John Boozman's commitment to diversity in the judiciary after the congressman announced six candidates for a vacant federal judge position.

Boozman, R-Rogers, forwarded the names of three whites and three blacks to President Bush, who will select one person from that list to replace the late U.S. District Judge George Howard, who was black.

Dale Charles, president of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People's state conference said he thought only blacks should have been on the list.

Howard, who held court in the Little Rock-based Eastern District, was the first black federal judge in Arkansas.

Boozman said he looked for the best candidates for the job, regardless of race.

"I recall him saying race would not be his first criteria for a replacement, which I strongly disagree with," Charles said. "Him having said that then gives one the mindset to question whether he believes in diversity."

I judge people by their skin color. I hear it’s OK to do that nowadays.

NAACP says Blacks can't compete with Whites, so exclude as Whites.

What does that say about this racist organization.

It's much easier to go by that than by their character.

Ahh, I see now.... According to the NAACP, apparently relying on Justice Brennan’s faulty notion of the cycle of racism... (i.e. it’s okay to discriminate against those who were the discriminators in the past), if one doesn’t consider race as a qualification, then one must be racist. And all along I had the miguided notion that Martin Luther King, Jr. wanted people to be judged on the “content of their character” not the “color of their skin”. Silly me.

"Diversity" doesn't mean selecting three white and three black candidates, it means giving a black the job without considering candidates of other races as a means of counterbalancing past discrimination.

Get your Liberalspeak straight. ;)

"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character"

The race problem in the US will continue until the day comes when blacks listen to Dr. King and make his dream a reality. Whites have done all that they can to make the dream a reality. Now the task belongs to the blacks: they must end their racist ways.

Hmm, objects to white males? Then he should have absolutely no problem supporting the nomination of either Emilio Garza or Edith Brown Clement.

Lets give him what he wants.

I nominate Dr. Thomas Sowell or Dr. Walter Williams.

You think they’ll like the choice?

I forgot one. A twofer.

Who was that female judge, conservative that W. almost put up the last time?

I cannot remember her name. She’s a black conservative and drives the black moonbats to sputtering, spittling rage.

I think that we are getting a clearer picture about what “diversity” really means. Justice is the potential in this case. The stakes don’t get any higher.

"Dale Charles is a Black Racist."

Lets see now. Checking my black orthodoxy, it seems to say that blacks cannot be racists -- only whites.

Whatever are we to do now?

Barrack O to the rescue. He pledges that he will only appoint judges that had salt and pepper parents. Only Clinton pledges that they will be all black all the time.

To annoy all involved, President Bush should scrap the list and appoint an illegal alien to the position. Preferably from Asia.

One or two more jurists like Justice Thomas might just make me happy as can be.
Throw in the trash that skank of a female and maybe one other liberal turd and get two like Thomas and see them really squeal.

David Pryor as new Senator for Life a Democrat baby said he thinks a black should be appointed and he is going to strongly recommend that to the President. He is a racist and does not have the sense to know it. Doofus. Daddys baby.

I knew I liked Judge Brown -- but I didn't know I liked her that much.
Good quotes.
Probably a dream that she ever gets nominated to the Supreme Court - but if she got a seat there it would be a great day for America and our Constitution...
