When I switch on the TV, listen to the radio, or read news and opinions on the Internet recently, I often come across with a strange opinion on Judge Sotomayor’s two statements back in 1994 and 2001. I may not like her, but I can’t see a reasonable explanation about the negative reactions to the revelation of her two almost identical statements made in 1994 and 2001.
New Haven, Connecticut, where Yale University is located, is the city that reached to the surprising decision not to promote firefighters to lieutenants or captains. The reason for that was because there were no African American and only two Hispanic firefighters who were likely to be made lieutenants or captains based on the results, as the New Haven Register mentioned two days ago. Are we witnessing a wrongfully perceived “politcal correctness”, “multiculturalism” and “tolerance”? Are we witnessing biased opinions from both sides?
