•Nominated for the Supreme Court by President Barack Obama in May 2009; was sworn in as Associate Justice on August 8, 2009

Born in June 1954 to Puerto Rican parents who resided in the Bronx, New York, Sonia Sotomayor earned a bachelor’s degree from Princeton University in 1976. During her years at Princeton, she joined two campus organizations whose efforts were devoted chiefly to the celebration of nonwhite ethnic identities. She reminisces: “The Puerto Rican group on campus, Acción Puertorriqueña, and the Third World Center provided me with an anchor I needed to ground myself in that new and different world.” In April 1974, during her sophomore year, Sotomayor co-chaired Accion Puertorriquena.

Years later, in 1994, Acción Puertorriqueña, which remains active to this day, lobbied against Proposition 187, a ballot initiative designed to deny social-welfare benefits to illegal aliens in California; it also sponsored a 2003 event focusing on the alleged “inequality” that suppressed Latinos’ “access to higher education … throughout our nation”; and it currently supports increased rights and privileges for illegal immigrants.

I am disgusted to find out that Sonya Sotomayor is also a member of the same racist Hispanic Lawyers group as Judge Curiel in the Trump University case.

Why was this not a reason to disqualify the woman as a nominee of the Supreme Court Judge. The Republicans are so afraid of being labelled racist that they allow racist judges into the Supreme Court.

It wasn't until Donald Trump's case that I started looking into these racist Hispanic groups.

All I need to know about her is that she hates white people, and would gladly let my white child be violently murdered if it would further the interests of her and her fellow co-ethnics.

In our complex world, I believe it is important to not overthink things.
