The full US Senate voted 53-47 in favor of confirming Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s appointment to the Supreme Court on Thursday. Jackson, who makes history as the first Black woman and the first public defender to serve on the highest US court, will replace Justice Stephen Breyer when he officially retires this summer at the end of the term.
On confirmation of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, former first lady Michelle Obama says she feels a “sense of pride—a sense of joy—to know that this deserving, accomplished Black woman will be a part of the highest court in the land.”
Vice President Kamala Harris, the first Black woman to hold the position, presided over the Senate’s 53-47 vote to confirm Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson as the first Black woman on the Supreme Court.
What people are saying?
richard wilson Take the word BLACK out of it. S h e is a deserving person How do you ever expect to defeat racism if you continue to make every decision or outcome about race. This only perpetuates wrongly placed mistrust between people. We the people are ONE.
Marcanthony Merchant I’m biracial, and I just can’t express how confusing it is for me to be socially applauded for expressing black pride and literally called a nazi for expressing pride in being white as well. This is why I choose to be an individualist instead of a toxic collectivist. Shit is dumb.
