Democrat Chuck Schumer won't vote to approve Marvin Quattlebaum for a vacancy on the U.S. District Court for the District of South Carolina. The reason? He is a white man replacing two black Obama nominees. The Democrat from New York said this while on the Senate floor.
“The nomination of Marvin Quattlebaum speaks to the overall lack of diversity in President Trump’s selections for the federal judiciary,” Schumer complained, according to The Daily Caller. “Quattlebaum replaces not one, but two scuttled Obama nominees who were African American.”
“I’ll be voting no on the Quattlebaum nomination,” Schumer finished up.
Watch the video:
The Democrats need to realize that if you reversed the races here they would be extremely angry and screaming racism. They need to realize how racist they are being. Schumer made it very clear that the only reason he is rejecting this candidate is because he's white.
If you take the left's word for it, we are supposed to rate people according to how much they have been victimized. This poor white judge does not have a "black view" which the left claims will prevent him from doing his job properly. It's a case of embracing identity over perspective.
Schumer said, per Daily Wire:
The nomination of Marvin Quattlebaum speaks to the overall lack of diversity in President Trump’s selections for the federal judiciary. Quattlebaum replaces not one, but two scuttled Obama nominees who were African American. As of February 14th, 83 percent of the President Trump’s confirmed nominees were male, 92 percent were white. That represents the lowest share of non-white candidates in three decades. It’s long past time that the judiciary starts looking a lot more like the America it represents. Having a diversity of views and experiences on the federal bench is necessary for the equal administration of justice.
Nevermind that Quattlebaum is very qualified for the position. Schumer is not voting for him for one reason: He is white.
