A new day has dawned as Ketanji Brown Jackson is POTUS Joe Biden’s choice for Supreme Court. Judge Jackson will make history as the first black woman to serve as a justice. She will be the 116th Supreme Court Justice; among the first 115 were 108 white men, 2 black men and 5 women, one of whom was Latino. It has been said that Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s nomination will likely set into motion a confirmation battle between an evenly divided senate. No surprise there, I guess. Though her confirmation would not change the court’s ideological balance (Republican appointed conservatives will retain a 6-3 majority) – it will achieve a first: all 3 justices appointed by Democratic presidents would be women. What a way to end February and Black History Month.
