Not a very diverse bunch, lots and lots of white faces.

How can you tell? They are all wearing masks. Most of them black ones.

Her poor record of hiring Black law clerks was not a secret.

In today’s Washington Post, Georgetown University law professor Paul Butler takes Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to task for her notoriously poor law clerk hiring record. Despite her status as a progressive icon, the Notorious RBG has anything-but a progressive record when it comes to the diversity of her law clerks. As Butler notes, “Ginsburg’s progressive jurisprudence on racial justice doesn’t show up in her own chambers.”

Interestingly enough, Justice Ginsburg’s newest colleague, Justice Brett Kavanaugh, has the most diverse law clerk hiring record of any justice, ever.

Ginsburg, on the other hand, has hired only one African American law clerk in her 25 years on the Supreme Court. This is an improvement from her 13-year tenure on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, when Ginsburg never had any black clerks. When this issue was raised during her Supreme Court confirmation hearings in 1993, Ginsburg said: “If you confirm me for this job, my attractiveness to black candidates is going to improve.” This remains a promise unfulfilled. . . .

Maybe she hired the most qualified applicants and did not give skin color any consideration.

And yet, ruled to prevent little people from doing so.

Why is the racism of liberals of any surprise?

I didn't notice RBG in the news until Trump won and her health problems made it look like Trump would get another SC pick.   
Bad strategy not retiring under Obama.

Apparently she thought Hillary would win, and she wanted the first woman president to name her replacement.
