^^^bruthas, I actually became aware that dude was a member of Federalist Society after I posted my initial congrats yesterday on this brutha’s confirmation. I wanted to feel good good that a Rattler had been confirmed to the federal bench, but had some trepidation about this dude Trump nominating ANY black person to the bench.
And when I discovered that dude was a member of the FS.......well, then I didn’t feel “quite” as good about the brutha’s confirmation.
Look, I will TRY to have an open mind about this brutha’s temperament on the bench. But as WM stated earlier^^^, members of the FS are considered “conservative” judges who believe that judges should “interpret the law as written.”
The US Constitution was adopted in 1787. Given the status of black people and ALL OTHER non-white people, white women, and non-affluent white men at the time, is it really SOUND judicial philosophy for a BLACK MAN to interpret the constitution as adopted 232 YEARS AGO?!?!?!
Lord, have mercy.
