The GOP is putting up a surprisingly stiff fight over the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, but that won’t save us from absurdities to come. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell announced he would vote against her, but she’ll still be confirmed by the Democrat majority. President Biden nominated her so she could be the first black woman on the Court, but she couldn’t define what a “woman” is.
Senator Blackburn: "Can you provide a definition for the word woman?"
Judge Jackson: "No. I can't…I'm not a biologist." pic.twitter.com/TRlqUeDGs6

One may pretend this is just word games.
Being mad that the meaning of words changes over time is not really a great basis for a political ideology.

However, the Supreme Court must define groups because the government treats them differently. It pays to be a member of certain groups.

Judge Jackson said she wouldn’t answer hypothetical questions, but Senator Cruz brought asked about “standing.” If America is to have an official caste system, people will call themselves members of preferred groups. Why shouldn’t they? Because race and sex are objective realities, not fantasies. Our rulers and their system must reckon with this contradiction.
Republican opposition to the judge was enough to get #GOPRacists trending.

This is my mom and stepdad. If it were up to the GOP, their 40+ years marriage wouldn't be allowed to legally exist. 🤬 pic.twitter.com/TAh7Ol8GJE

After three days of watching Supreme Court congressional hearings with the Sedition Party of lunatics … the bottom line is they're #GOPRacists.
Every piece of legislation they deny is racist. Everything they say is racist. Manchin and Sinema, too. Racists.

“The grilling she [Jackson] has experienced is a reminder that Black Americans are seen and often judged through a different lens than White Americans,” said the Washington Post, “and that they also have life experiences that White Americans do not share.” Wouldn’t that mean it’s hard for them to live together? It certainly makes political debate difficult. Questioning a leftist black woman is apparently blasphemy.
The amount of energy and skill this takes cannot be overstated.

If this is what they’re doing to Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson on national television, imagine what Black women go through in corporate American and other spaces behind closed doors….

To the Black women and girls watching Judge Jackson's confirmation hearing at home, you may hear a lot of racist dog-whistles, a lot of digs at her intelligence, and insults that are rooted in some Senators' fears of Black women's intellect.
Know this. We will not let them win.

"Persevere." That hits me in the gut. If you've ever been the only person in a room, you know that feeling. Black women know that feeling—persevering in the face of those who want us to fail. But—Judge Jackson is here, and she's going to the highest court in our country. pic.twitter.com/aj95kRmjCC

Ketanji Brown Jackson is literally one of the most qualified people in the world for this position. In fact, based on the current Justices — she’s overqualified. Yet, this is how she’s treated in public as millions watch.
So, imagine how Black women are treated in private…

The way that a Black woman in America can be as highly, hyper educated, intelligent, elegant, skilled, experienced and qualified as KBJ and still be treated like this by white men on national television. It's not even symbolic. It's a glaring body of evidence.

I recently emphasized that Sen. Ted Cruz is just the latest GOP lawmaker who is ignoring equity on SCOTUS & disrespecting Black Women.
This week’s shameful treatment of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson truly brings these words to light.
She deserved better. https://t.co/IcRa0Eke0R

What's devastating is that even the people "on our side" don't seem to be calculating the cost to Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson. Memeing her face won't change that there is a cost, and Black women carry it in our bodies, regardless the outcome of those proceedings.
