Judge Sotomayor’s Early Life and Creating Comunidad With You
The world is focused on a Latina woman raised in a Bronx housing project, who yesterday became a nominee to our country’s Highest Court.
Judge Sonia Sotomayor is en fuego.
From blogs to message boards, to newspapers, radio stations and the Twitterverse, everybody is talking about the 54-year-old federal appeals court judge.
“Que Viva Judge Sotomayor! The Supreme Court “Potluck” lunches just got a whole lot more interesting and delicioso. Adelante!” wrote the actress Jackie Guerra in her Twitter stream.
Today’s news is filled with profiles of Sotomayor, analysis of her politics, and discussion about whether Latinos themselves are happy about her nomination.
Here’s a morning round-up:
Latinos are mixed on Sotomayor, which makes sense given that not all Latinos have the same politics, you know?
And what about you? How are you feeling about this nomination? (Before you post, remember we play honest, but polite here on Tiki Tiki.)
