ANALYSIS/OPINION:

My faith in the courage and integrity of American journalists is restored every time I read The Washington Times. Your excellent editorials, commentary pages and letters to the editor are the best! I especially liked your Tuesday editorial “Sotomayor reversed again.”

Your analysis of this controversial issue was right on target, which proves that President Obama’s nominee for the Supreme Court, Judge Sonia Sotomayor, should be withdrawn. That Judge Sotomayor’s ruling in the New Haven, Conn., firefighter’s case was reversed indicates that she allowed her own personal bias to interfere in what should have been an objective and color-blind judgment.

America is a nation of laws, and those laws should apply fairly to all Americans without exception. Your editorial said what no liberal newspaper or TV commentator would dare have said: “In Judge Sotomayor’s America, white men need not apply.” Your editorial forces us to ask: Is this the kind of change Mr. Obama wants for America? If so, it’s un-American.

Unfortunately, Judge Sotomayor’s prejudice came to light in her repeated statements about people of her own ethnic background having better judgment and in her refusal to render a statement as to why she voted against the qualified firemen.

Thank goodness we still have a newspaper that gives us all the facts so that we can know the truth and take proper action to protect our freedoms and our values, starting with equal justice under the law for all Americans.
