Ginsburg had 150 law clerks in her time as Judge and Justice....only one was black. Was she a racist?

If she had been a republican, a conservative...she would have been smeared as a racist...but as a proud democrat party member in a robe, the democrat party is the party of actual racism.....she gets a pass.....for some reason.

On Wednesday, an army of Justice Ginsburg’s former law clerks, all dressed in black, honored their mentor by lining up as “honorary pallbearers” on the front steps of the Supreme Court when her casket arrived. It was an impressive display.

However, Christian Mitchell, Illinois’ Deputy Governor, noticed a “jarring lack of ppl of color” among the former Ginsburg clerks.

This wasn’t because African-American former Ginsburg clerks declined to serve as honorary pallbearers. It was because, in her 27 years on the Supreme Court, Ginsburg apparently hired only one African-American clerk — one out of approximately 150. That, by the way, is one more than she reportedly hired during her 13 years as a federal court of appeals judge.

Thanks to the OP for that interesting fact.

I feel that many people do not really adore the late Justice that much. They are just using her as a way to make President Trump look bad.

Regarding the fact regarding law clerks, we all have our opinion as to her hiring decision.

She’s a white democrat. They only affiliate with other white democrats. All different kinds of white democrats. They call it diversity.

Actually it was because few are actually qualified in real life and the competition for those few that are is pretty stiff among the ambulance chasers and firms that handle the new and highly lucrative industry of Cop Baitin Fo Bling , but that shouldn't have mattered to Ginzburg, since she didn't really care that much about law in the first place as a 'social justice warrior' and all that.

She shouldn't have been honored anyway as a traitor who announced she was renouncing her citizenship when Trump won. Send the body to her beloved New Zealand instead.

She was probably like Barrack Hussain Obama's grandmother...




"I can no more disown (the Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr.) than I can disown my white grandmother, a woman who helped raise me, a woman who sacrificed again and again for me, a woman who loves me as much as she loves anything in this world, but a woman who once confessed her fear of black men who passed by her on the street, and who on more than one occasion has uttered racial or ethnic stereotypes that made me cringe." Also, a woman Obama will knife if it helps him in the polls.

I went to add this fact on her Wikipedia page, but of course her page is locked. All facts that don’t support The Narrative must be suppressed.

There were very few of black law clerks throughout the years.

You don't get to put her down to build Kavanaugh (an alleged rapist) and Gorsuch up.
It’s not putting Ginsburg down. Ginsburg was part of the Left that is always wagging its finger at US and particularly conservatives for lack of diversity. She and fellow justices were in a position to change that with law clerks particularly with the affirmative action views and opinions they held.

Also, since you have a problem with alleged rapists like Kavanaugh, try and be consistent by also siting Bill Clinton and Joe Biden who have had more instances and more women accuse them of rape, assault and unwanted advances.

While not exactly on point, when Clinton nominated Ginsburg he did a great favor to the conservative cause. He nominated a 60+ year old with health issues and a towering ego. She should have resigned in 2012 when everyone told her to, but she refused. Now we will face the consequences.

Actually, there are tremendous numbers of black lawyers out there, particularly in a highly chocolatized area like Washington DC. Washington has a HUGE black law school in the Northwest neighborhood of the city, Howard.

Your feelings about Trump is a given. Now, get back to the issue of Blacks as clerks in the Court. The answer is not many and you should be holding all Justices, past, present and future, accountable regardless of stripes. Or, are you only interested in using racial bias as a medium against Conservatives while giving liberals a pass since they are more aligned with your agenda? It’s okay. You are not on trial.... just looking for some honesty and consistency. You might also want to try and avoid the tendency to shift goal posts.

Among 36 law clerks hired by the justices this term, one is African-American, two is Hispanic and three are Asian-American.

Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. and Justice Anthony M. Kennedy hired the lowest percentage of minority clerks since 2005, at 8 percent. They were followed at the low end by Justices Samuel A. Alito Jr., Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Clarence Thomas, with 12 percent minority hiring.

Justice Sonia Sotomayor was at the high end, with 31 percent of her clerks constituting minorities. Also at the high end is Justice Neil M. Gorsuch, who has three minorities among seven law clerks.

The justices hiring the most women—Ginsburg and Stephen G. Breyer, hired about the same percentage of men and women. Sotomayor hired about 44 percent women. At the low end was Kennedy, hiring 13.5 percent women, and Gorsuch, hiring just one female law clerk.
