Chuck Schumer Votes Against Trump Judicial Nominee Because He’s White
If Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer only voted against a nominee because of the nominee’s race, why does that not make Schumer a racist?
People should be judged on who they are and not what color they are.
Schumer, D-N.Y., said on the Senate floor that the nomination of Marvin Quattlebaum, a white judge who is a partner at Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough in Greenville, South Carolina, “speaks to the overall lack of diversity in President Trump’s selections for the federal judiciary.”
Quattlebaum’s nomination, Schumer said, replaces two black judges from South Carolina whom the Obama administration nominated to fill the position — which The Post and Courier notes has long been vacant. More
I’ve known Chuck Schumer for years.
He is not a racist, but this was an absolutely shameful reason to vote against a very qualified nominee like Marvin Quattlebaum.

Sir, someone should remind @SenSchumer, diversity of culture knows no color..the United States of America is diverse, but the interpretation of Law requires strict adherence to the Culture under which it was founded. Schumer’s dance/ statements warrant only contempt. Sir

If you make a decision based on the color of someone’s skin, that’s racism. That makes @chuckschumer racist, at least on this issue.

Shameful, to say the least.

He certainly sounds racist to me. He needs to step down or removed from office. He’s either a white hater or he’s mentally unfit to serve. Either way he needs to go.
