Chuck Schumer Says He Won't Confirm a Trump Judicial Pick Because the Guy's White

If only there were a word for deliberately discriminating against someone because of the color of their skin. You know, like a term that could be used to describe someone who treats a person with prejudice based solely on their ethnicity.

I feel like I’ve heard something like that, somewhere…

However you may choose to define it, that’s exactly what New York Sen. Chuck Schumer did Wednesday when he announced he would not be voting to confirm Trump's judicial nominee for the U.S. District Court in South Carolina because the guy’s white.

“The nomination of Marvin Quattlebaum speaks to the overall lack of diversity in President Trump’s selections for the federal judiciary,” Schumer complained. “Quattlebaum replaces not one, but two scuttled Obama nominees who were African American.”

“As of February 14th, 83 percent of the President Trump’s confirmed nominees were male, 92 percent were white. That represents the lowest share of non-white candidates in three decades,” he continued. “It’s long past time that the judiciary starts looking a lot more like the America it represents. Having a diversity of views and experiences on the federal bench is necessary for the equal administration of justice.”

“I’ll be voting no on the Quattlebaum nomination,” Schumer concluded.
