I’m not a political guy. But the current MIS-QUOTING of Judge Sotomayor is driving me nuts. Here’s what she said:
“I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn’t lived that life.”
PLEASE NOTE THE LAST FIVE WORDS – “WHO HASN’T LIVED THAT LIFE !” To me…a non political guy…that statment means that somebody with a specific life experience, would understand a situation from that specific life experience, better than someone who does not have that life experience. That’s the difference between knowing that you shouldn’t touch a hot stove, and remembering the painful sizzle that happened to you the last time you tried it. As a non political guy…that makes sense to me. You decide.
