Via Instapundit, I see this Clarence Thomas video in which he says that the Court is"very heavily Northeastern" in its mentality.Â Thomas is not only the only African-American on the court, but as a native of Pin Point, Georgia, he`s also the only Southerner. Everyone else is from either the Northeast or California, and eight of them went to Ivy League schools. You have to wonder why it`s more important to appoint a "wise Latina" from the Bronx than it is to appoint someone to represent a whole region of America. See Why Not Affirmative Action For White Evangelicals? by Pat Buchanan for more.
