Wise Women Unite! What Sotomayor Should Have Said 

By C. Nicole Mason – WeNews correspondent

     I suppose it’s a good thing Judge Sonya Sotomayor’s confirmation hearings have been a little boring and uneventful…. In answering concerns over her “troubling” wise Latina remark, I wish she had stood tall and defended her comments… Here’s the alternative script still running in my head:

     “I believe I am wise and like Justice O’Connor I am aware of how my experiences not only as a woman, but a Latina have not only made it more difficult for me to pursue and reach my goals in this country, but have shaped my worldview and perspective. I am standing here before you today as a Supreme Court justice nominee because it took wisdom from a very young age to navigate a system that was not designed for my success. In these rapidly changing times, it will take wisdom, prudence and a brilliant command of the law to help decide many of the important cases that will come before me as Justice. And I am prepared.”

“I am standing here before you today as a Supreme Court justice nominee because it took wisdom from a very young age to navigate a system that was not designed for my success.” 

     Wow!  Speaking truth to power!! You Go, Girl!!!
