Nashville’s Leaders React to Katanji Brown Jackson’s Supreme Court Nomination

When President Joe Biden revealed that Katanji Brown Jackson had been nominated to the Supreme Court, the good news finally arrived for the American people. For the first time in American history, the nation’s highest court has nominated a black woman.

When asked about the nomination, President Biden said the following in a recent press conference:

MY NOMINEE FOR THE UNITED STATES SUPREME COURT IS JUDGE KETANJI JACKSON.”

This latest statement has sent waves of delight across the country, and Sheryl Guinn, president of the NAACP Nashville Chapter, voiced her joy over the decision, stating that it is past time for the high court to represent the country’s diversity.

IT WAS LIKE FINALLY, YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN FINALLY THERE IS THE RECOGNITION,”

According to Guinn. Though the decision is noteworthy, Guinn regrets the fact that this is the first time in 233 years that the court has a black woman as a judge applicant. She regards this as a win, but she will not relinquish her fight until she sees more people like Judge Jackson in positions of national prominence.

Why Is This Such Breaking News?

Not only does Katanji Brown Jackson’s nomination demonstrate the nation’s commitment to diversity, but it also instills fresh hopes and ambitions in the next generation. The nomination will instill in today’s youth the belief that everything is possible, including a seat on the United States’ top court.

As a result of this choice, Katanji Brown Jackson showed her gratitude by saying:

I MEAN YOU KEPT US TO THE POINT WHERE WE COULDN’T READ. I MEAN IT WAS LITERALLY ILLEGAL FOR US TO READ AND NOW WE’RE SITTING ON THE HIGHEST COURT OF THE LAND AND MAKING DECISIONS THAT YOU AND ALL YOUR FAMILY WILL HAVE TO FOLLOW.”

Currently, 61.6 percent of the American population is white, 18.7 percent Hispanic, and only 12.4 percent Black, and the ratio of whites is steadily decreasing.

However, the Senate must confirm Joe Biden’s candidacy. Jackson’s nomination will be approved by a simple majority vote because the Senate is split 50-50 between the two parties. It’s a wonderful piece of news, and for certain Americans, it has a profound significance.

Jackson’s History With the Judicial Body

A federal judge since 2013, Jackson is seen as a strong choice for the Supreme Court by both Democrats and their liberal supporters. Her years of expertise as a public defender will be invaluable in determining the basic principles and ethics of the United States and its highest court.

In June, all 50 Democrats on the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit voted in favour of Judge Jackson‘s nomination to the Supreme Court of the United States. She can be confirmed as a justice of the United States Supreme Court if she receives the same level of support from Democrats and Republicans alike.

The nation’s highest courts have had a total of 115 members, although just two of those members were black, and no women served. Joe Biden and other Democrats agreed that a black woman should be nominated for president of the United States.

In spite of the fact that this may appear to be a wonderful option for the majority of Americans, the Republican Party has a different idea. The Republicans accused Vice President Joe Biden of sexism in his selection of a Supreme Court Justice.

Vice President Joe Biden, on the other hand, feels that Jackson is “very competent” for the position and that she will serve as a representative of the United States on the court. Leondra Kruger and Michelle Childs were Jackson’s rivals for the position.

Michelle Childs, a federal judge in South Carolina, is on the same bench as Kruger, a member of the California Supreme Court. Fatima Goss Graves, the CEO of the National Women’s Law Center, praised Biden’s choice to select Jackson over the other two candidates. A nomination for a Black woman is a sign that the country is making progress against racism, she said.

There’s no telling what the final outcome of the vote will be; but, the nomination of the nation’s first black female supreme court judge is a historic moment for our country and the globe.
