Affirmative action pick?

Wednesday, May 27, 2009 Bryan Hudson 1 Comments

Seconds after the president nominated Judge Sonia Sotomayor for the Supreme Court, charges of "reverse racism" and accusations of another "affirmative action" selection began to fly.

Republican leaders such as Rush Limbaugh wasted no time giving themselves another black eye by denigrating a woman who appears to be highly qualified. The fact that she is female and Hispanic is a positive by-product.

There are always people who are eager to suggest that minorities, especially blacks and Hispanics, who receive jobs, appointments or attain high office could not be as qualified as a white person. "Oh, that's just an affirmative action pick," many say.

Interestingly, when an organization, leadership group or court is comprised of all white persons, there are no complaints. But let one minority breach that wall, and charges of reverse racism get started. People seem to think that real racism has vanished.

Sotomayer should be evaluated on her record and temperament. Let the Judiciary Committee and Senate debate, then vote up or down.

At the end of the day, the "old guard" will have to accept the fact that the days of overlooking qualified minorities have ended.


Thinking about God's Grace

Lyrics by Israel Houghton

Where would I be if not for your grace
Carrying me through every season
Where would I be if not for Your grace
Came to rescue me
And I want to thank You
For Your grace

Grace that restores
Grace that redeems
Grace that releases me to worship
Grace that repairs visions and dreams
Grace that releases miracles


Going A.P.E. for God

Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.

Prov. 4:26,
Ponder the path of your feet, And let all your ways be established.

A-cknowledge God: Let Him know HOW you need Him in each area of life.
P-onder the path: "Where does this path lead?"
E-stablish your ways: "What does God want me to do now?
