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

    It's pretty obvious that the fool in charge is a racist (among other things), he also seems to enjoy chaos and turmoil.
    The longer this ass (and White Nationalists like him) are running this country, the farther the divide.
    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.
    President Trump’s pool of judicial nominees is one of the least diverse in years, according to the Associated Press.
    Out of Trump’s nearly 60 federal judicial nominees so far, 74 percent are white men, 19 percent are female and only 2 percent are female and nonwhite.
    The AP reported Monday that the rate at which Trump is appointing white men to federal courts is the highest since former President George H.W. Bush’s administration.
    Compared to former President Obama, Trump’s nominees are significantly less diverse. Only 37 percent of judges confirmed under Obama were white men and nearly 42 percent were women.
    Trump has touted his judicial nominations as a top accomplishment of his presidency, and is tasked with filling more than 100 court vacancies nationwide.
    Many of Trump’s judicial picks have been under scrutiny for lack of experience; four of his nominees have been deemed “not qualified” by the American Bar Association.

    And it was the power to nominate federal judges and SCOTUS justices that most conservatives said they prized so highly that they voted for Trump.

    You might be able to argue successfully that there just aren't enough conservative minority lawyers of either gender, but I don't think you can argue there aren't enough conservative white female lawyers.

    This is disgraceful.

    So exactly how many whites would be an acceptable number to you?

    And how many of each other race?

    For instance, how many Native Americans must he nominate not to be a racist, how many Asians, how many Hispanics?

    Give us your numbers please.
    Thanks from Pureinheart

    I would be happy if the commitment were to make progress. All percents of ethnic groups participation continue to rise.

    As for women, seems obvious the target goal should be a 50% female federal bench.

    Why?

    So you would take underqualified people, if that were the case, just to meet a quota and let our judicial system suffer for it?

    Nice.

    "white males" is what he said, not "whites."
    Please pay attention.

    No, Spooky. This is a gradual process. Federal judgeships last for life, and in the 1970's or before, female lawyers were statistically insignificant in number. But as of the 1980's and beyond, that began to change and more than one third of today's American lawyer labor pool is female. More than half of all law students are women.

    Millions of people more to choose from. No need to lower standards at all.

    Well as you said its a gradual process and its heading in the right direction apparently.

    So I'm not sure there is a disagreement here then.

    Trump is reversing the progress Obama made. Not because the female lawyers are scarce, or too few are conservative, or because the females are less able.

    For sexism. He is not willing to help shape a country in which women occupy positions of authority.

    You okay with that? I'm not.
