Letters to the Strib: Underrepresented?

Posted by: Badda

Tagged in: Badda

A letter to today's issue of the Star-Tribune addresses' President Obama's Supreme Court nomination.  They accepted a pro-letter and a con-letter... so this is not necessarily a complaint about the left-leaning Strib.  Just the letter in question.

I am thrilled to hear that President Obama nominated a Latina to the Supreme Court. Latinos are the largest minority group in the United States and yet have been unrepresented. If Sonia Sotomayor gets appointed, Latinos will finally a powerful voice in American politics!

I hope Sotomayor does as much for the Latino community as Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall did for the black community.
