Biden should consider Michelle Adults I’d feel upset that the only reason they picked me is because of my skin color. Is Biden using the race card, again? We have had a (2) term President of color. Biden continues to falsely claim White Supremacy in efforts to tear us apart. I wish judge Child’s the best.

Judge Michelle Childs being considered for Supreme Court, White House confirmsThe White House confirmed on Friday that South Carolina District Court Judge Michelle Childs is being considered as a replacement to retiring Justice Stephen Breyer on the United States Supreme Court . If only the most qualified were elevated to the Supreme Court—regardless of race and gender—the history of SCOTUS wouldn’t be so white and so male. Seems qualified. Great!

Why S.C. Judge Michelle Childs is Clyburn’s pick to replace BreyerIf helping Joe Biden become president isn't reason enough, House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn has a strong reason for his favored Supreme Court choice: J. Michelle Childs is a Southerner — a rare perspective in the chamber. He has been right about a lot of things. But an existing one. Clarence Thomas is from Georgia

White House confirms J. Michelle Childs is among 'multiple individuals' under consideration for Supreme Court nominationSouth Carolina US District Judge J. Michelle Childs is among the people President Joe Biden is considering as a Supreme Court nominee, the White House confirmed Friday night, and as a result there will not be a hearing on her nomination to the Court of Appeals while she is under consideration for the high court. Good thing we've evolved from selection of color and gender Well, she checks all 3 boxes; black, 2 X chromosomes and is as looney as anyone else Biden would appoint. Let's just go with this one and call it a day, shall we? I'd like for some Republican to explain to me how Trump's nomination of white men isn't racist, but Biden's nomination of a black woman is. Why shouldn't the makeup of Supreme Court reflect the demographics of the country as a whole?

retiring Justice Stephen Breyer on the U.S. Supreme Court, the White House confirmed late Friday.  Childs, 55, is based in Columbia, South Carolina, and was nominated last year by President Biden to serve on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, often regarded as the second-most prominent federal court because of its proximity to the high court, the caliber of cases it considers and because so many of its judges have been elevated to the Supreme Court. The Senate Judiciary Committee had been scheduled to hold a confirmation hearing for Childs's nomination next week, but aides confirmed Friday that her hearing would be postponed. The White House explained late Friday the postponement is because Childs is under consideration to succeed Breyer. "Judge Childs is among multiple individuals under consideration for the Supreme Court, and we are not going to move her nomination on the Court of Appeals while the President is considering her for this vacancy," White House spokesman Andrew Bates said in a statement.  Bates added that news reports"indicating that the President is only seriously considering three potential nominees is incorrect." Childs has a powerful cheerleader in her corner. South Carolina Representative James Clyburn, the House Majority Whip, is publicly pushing her to take the spot, arguing she brings unique professional and personal experience to the court. Among other things, she is a graduate of state universities — the University of South Florida and University of South Carolina — attributes that Clyburn argues are sorely missing from the court. Childs is among several contenders under consideration, including Ketanji Brown Jackson, also a judge on the D.C. appeals court, and Leondra Kruger, a justice on the California Supreme Court who once served in the Justice Department's Office of the Solicitor General. Mr. Biden has set a self-imposed deadline of late February to announce his choice and is vowing to fulfill a campaign pledge to appoint a Black woman to the court for the first time. Trending News
