    Uprisings will not be at the fault of minorities. It will be Trump's doing.

    AP: Trump picking white males for judiciary at highest rate in 30 years.

    Pretty hard to achieve both diversity AND the far right slant he promised his base. Not that many women and minorities can get the kind of education needed to be a judge and maintain the kind of conservatism required for Trump to nominate them.

    True, but that problem is not gender specific.

    White males will be more likely to be able to navigate the educational and professional system without ever having to let go of their traditional beliefs. It's the "being born on second base and thinking you hit a double" thing. They don't need to even be aware of the same things which minorities and women have a hard time avoiding.

    White males don't have as much encouragement to develop empathy as others do. It's not that they're incapable of it -- just that they're less likely to find themselves in situations which accelerate the development of it.

    I think of how Rush Limbaugh's commentary on drug abusers changed when he got into legal trouble over his addiction. Partially it changed because he was caught -- but I think partially it was because he had trouble putting himself in drug addict's shoes before that. He needed to have a very direct lesson in order to gain empathy there. He was able to coast through most of his life without ever needing to develop that empathy.

    That's the inertia which allows a higher percentage of white males to stay conservative throughout even extensive education and meeting professional hurdles.

    True, again, but Trump needed a few dozen female lawyers to nominate. There are literally hundreds of thousands who hold conservative views, as most private practice is paid for by business, and few business owners will tolerate liberalism in their lawyers.
