Obama Asked To Appoint Native American Supreme Court Justice

Citing the fact that there is not a single Native American judge in any of the 866 federal judicial positions in the United States, the National Native American Bar Association has sent a letter to President Obama asking him to appoint a Native American to succeed retiring Justice John Paul Stevens on the US Supreme Court.  A full copy of the letter can be read HERE.

Its about time! This country needs to wake-up and die right.

I agree wholeheartedly with the content of the letter.

It is indeed past time for a Native on the Court, but the cynic in me keeps muttering that all those RWG's (that's Rich White Guys) in the Senate would start to feel seriously threatened, bust a vein and develop a nervous twitch.

Just heard in the news that the Republicans in the Senate decided to end their 'filibuster' preventing debate on finance reform; after somebody threatened to hold an all-night session. They'd probably go catatonic over a Native being nominated.

I had high hopes that President Obama would appoint a Native American legal scholar to the supreme court. I am truly disappointed. Thank you for sending the letter to President Obama, I sent one too, maybe he will think about this situation and next time there is an opening he will take our advice.
