Older White Men (Good ol’ Boys) of Power Against Latinas

Yes, I’ve used the feminine ending to Latino above because some of the white GOP Senators pulled the race and gender card this past week in Judge Sonia Sotomayor’s confirmation hearings. Shockingly, the Democrat Senators praised their GOP Senatorial colleagues for restraint instead of bashing them for using the divisive issue of race in the attempt to ignore Sotomayor’s judicial record. And, the GOP white supremacist senators achieved their goal to an extent, placing the emphasis on race rather than record!

Why don't these older white male senators just form an organization with the same name as the title to this journal entry,and become a not for profit organization and ask for non-taxable funding of racial and gender prejudice?

I am personally thankful for the 58 seat Democrat majority plus 2 independents in the Senate. There is no chance the bigots can prevent Judge Sotomayor's confirmation! Oh, yes, just to keep the record straight, there are also many Republican Senators who will vote for Judge Sotomayor.
