It's not important to me how many are Black. That would be 100% against what Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King, Jr. advocated.
No, you misunderstand Dr. King if you think he would be happy with the number of Black Judges Donald Trump has appointed.
It is important that the Judiciary be racially diverse.
King supported affirmative action:
King was well aware of the arguments used againstaffirmative action policies. As far back as 1964, he was writing in Why We Can't Wait: "Whenever the issue of compensatory treatmentfor the Negro is raised, some of our friends recoil in horror. The Negro should be granted equality, they agree; but he should ask nothing more.On the surface, this appears reasonable, but it is not realistic."
King supported affirmative action";typeprograms because he never confused the dream with American reality. Ashe put it, "A society that has done something special against theNegro for hundreds of years must now do something special for theNegro" to compete on a just and equal basis (quoted in Let theTrumpet Sound, by Stephen Oates).
In a 1965 Playboy interview, King comparedaffirmative action";style policies to the GI Bill: "Withincommon law we have ample precedents for special compensatoryprograms.... And you will remember that America adopted a policy ofspecial treatment for her millions of veterans after the war."http://academic.udayton.edu/race/04needs/affirm25.htm
