Really, Fox News?

Fox News Asks Why More White People Aren't On The Supreme Court

Fox News asks, “Why Aren’t White Males Being Considered for the Supreme Court” with the ultra-ironic picture of the Supreme Court. Currently, 5 of 9 of the Supreme Court Justices, including the Chief Justice, are white men. Even though white men are 32% of the US population, they represent 55% of Supreme Court Justices.

As found in Wikipedia:

All justices were Caucasians of European heritage until the 1967 appointment of Thurgood Marshall….

The Court currently consists of six males and three females; one African American and eight Caucasians (one of whom is Latino); six Roman Catholics and three Jews. As of February 9, 2011, the average age of the justices is 65 years, 2 months, and the average service length of the justices is 12 years, 6 months.

With the accession of Elena Kagan, all of the justices have an Ivy League background.

    isn’t it just as racist to target minorities for the position?

  2. Lakawak says:

    OK..I think we can all agree that prosebeforehos is one ofhte worst blogs on the internet, right? and that the staff are just failed writers who are hoping to stave off food stamps for as long as possible but know that made some bad life decisions that lefd to having “blog writer” on their resume, thus ensuring that they will never lead a good life. But somehow this site manages to sink even lower.

    What does the CURRENT make up of the members have to do with considerations for FUTURE members? The BEST CANDIDATES should be considered. Regadless of race.

    Is this site REALLY suggesting affirmative action is agood thing? Really, prosebeforehjos?

    And THAT is why you are a joke and will end your life by your own hands some day soon when you realize what a bad future you have

    • Ryan says:

      Seriously, think before you speak. What kind of asshole tells someone else they’re going to kill themselves someday over a blog post?

    • Writer says:

      I wish I had food stamps. I actually survive on a mixture of my tears and ejaculate produced from jerking off to to thoughts of your mother being tag teamed by Thomas and Scalia. My life is a pitiful mess because I don’t have a car and am not living the American Dream. If only I had more cheaply produced Chinese goods!

    • Apples says:

      Did PBH rape your mother or something? Chill the fuck out.

    • Kenny Madrid says:

      they’re not saying that it should be minorities to only be considered. They’re making fun of Fox News for wondering why white people aren’t being considered when obviously white people are the majority of the considerations from the beginning up until about twenty or so years ago.

      It’s not an analysis on race and jobs. It’s an indictment of Fox News. It’s a shame you misunderstood. Because it really is funny.

  4. anon says:

    I have to agree with The Reviewer, and Lakawak.

    I also seriously hope the picture is not real, it seems too stupid to possibly be legit.

  5. IgnoramUSA says:

    Ahh, remember when the Supreme Court was not partisan?

    I guess the question that was asked went right over your head. Let me see if I can explain it to you. The Supreme Court is not intended to be a representative body. That is what Congress is for. Trying to make the court “look like America” is a misunderstanding of what the court is for.

    The question “Why aren’t white males being considered for the court?” is a good question because it raises the issue of whether we should overlook extremely qualified people because they happen to be of the same skin color and gender as the majority on the court already.

    The court is not to represent America as it does its work, the court is to uphold the law. We want the best people for the job – no matter what race or gender they are.

    Hope this helps you to understand the real issue.

    • Umesh Singh says:

      The issue is that the Supreme Court has the last word on many issues, and it has traditionally NOT protected minorities for a long while. Let’s see, this nation was born 1776, and we finally officially recognized the basic rights of blacks, when ??? 1960’s?

      Really? I would say that that is a grotesque failure of any legal system, and surely, at some point, the supreme court of any land should be stepping in to say WTF?!

      By the way, isn’t it the conservatives that keep complaining that the Supreme Court does not rule the way the people want them to rule? And that it is not answerable to the people?

      So which is it? Do conservatives want the SC to be answerable to the people or not?

      Conservatives need to get their arguments straight before complaining what “liberals” are doing to the court.

      • Dave says:

        So what you are saying is “discriminate by race because we don’t want anyone to discriminate by race”?

    • Kit says:

      lol, it’s ridiculous question because it’s not as if white males haven’t been considered and selected lately, or even appointed as Chief Justice…

  10. Charlie says:

    The question is stupid, Lakawak, because there’s no indication that white males AREN’T being considered for the SCOTUS, nor is there any reason to be concerned since they are OVERLY represented as it is.

  11. Teege says:

    I’m pretty sure there are 7 white males in that picture…

  12. Sly says:

    Has anyone noticed yet that picture is from over a year ago. Sonia Sotomayor and Elana Kagan are not in the photo. Just saying…

  13. Hummy says:

    I hate positive discrimination, I think the job should be given to the best candidate for that position irrespective of race, colour or religion.

  14. Mark says:

    I don’t know, I think we need to think about some diversity in the supreme court, I mean for how long has it been dominated by white older males?

    Then again, that in and of itself is discrimination and thats just wrong because all forms of discrimination is wrong. (Even if fox turns a blind eye to other forms of discrimination)

  15. William says:

    I have lived with affirmative action most of my life, I had to prepare my self to a much higher level to reach the graduate school of my choice to exceed the point give away to minorities. Though I am a liberal and in general find Fox network postions offensive, I support this comment. Infact I would like to see added to every graduate degree a notation, displaying clearly affirmation action if it was applied.

  16. Anonymous says:

    Just because 55% of the Supreme Court is made up of white males does not mean they are being considered for the Supreme Court. It means they are already on it.

  17. Mirddes says:

    it is VERY dangerous that ALL of the Supreme Court Justices subscribe to Abrahamic Religions.
    6 christians, 3 jews, 0 Atheists, 0 Arabs, 0 hindu, 0 buddah, 0 ANYTHING ELSE!!!

    these people have very warped worldviews, a world in which there is a CREATOR LOLOLOL
    how can anyone expect them to uphold the law fairly?
    if you cross their religion, you cross them, and they will rule against you.

  18. james says:

    Perhaps education is a factor. You need to have a college education in law to be on the High Court. White males may only be about 32% of the population, they make up about 50% of college graduates and even more law graduates. Here in New Orleans, blacks have a high school drop out rate of close to 40%. Until the black community can fix this, they will continue to be under represented.

  19. Bully says:

    Whenever you post anything please take the responsibility of what you say. Don’t be a racist or any such chauvinist. Be sure of what is truth and what you are speaking.

  20. Valerie says:

    Why can’t we all just pretend to be blue and then consider people for the supreme court? I don’t care who is up for consideration, just don’t overlook good candidates because of their skin color. White or black. Asian or Hispanic. Indian or Middle Eastern. Blue or purple. Hell, I want a translucent person in the Supreme Court.
