Ketanji Brown Jackson: An Insult To Black Females

As the very proud friend and teacher of hundreds of Black females for numerous decades, I am appalled that the nominee for U.S. Supreme Court Justice has violated the most basic and precious norm of every Black female I have known – the ideal to protect children from harm.  Throughout America’s history, the Black female has sacrificed immeasurably to protect her own children and others as well. The Black female has no history of condoning child molesting or child pornography.

To nominate a Black female to a position of esteem and honor when she has consistently betrayed the honorable hallmark of her peers is an outrageous insult to the fellow females I so admire, who believe to the depths of their souls that sexualized and victimized children are not and never to be objects of adult pleasure and entertainment.

The fates of these children are death by murder, disability, depression, drugs, suicide, and sexual slavery.  Is their slavery any less hideous and heinous than the slavery this nation fought to abolish forevermore?

Children in chains, trapped and beaten, tortured to provide entertainment until their end. This is sexual slavery, which begins with child molesting and child pornography.  Is this slavery any less hideous and heinous than the slavery Harriet Tubman risked her courageous life to cease for all times?

The current U.S. Supreme Court nominee is the antithesis of my role model, Harriet Tubman, since my earliest years.

EDITORS NOTE: On February 1, 2022 The Washington Post’s Marc A. Thiessen reported, “President Biden wants credit for nominating the first Black woman to the Supreme Court. But here is the shameful irony: As a senator, Biden warned President George W. Bush that if he nominated [Judge Janice Rogers Brown] the first Black woman to serve on the Supreme Court, he would filibuster and kill her nomination.”
