Yesterday, Chuck Schumer took to the Senate floor to defend President Biden’s “historic” pledge to nominate a black woman to the Supreme Court. He said:
Until 1981, this powerful body, the Supreme Court, was all White men. Imagine. America wasn’t all White men in 1981, or ever. Under President Biden and this Senate majority, we’re taking historic steps to make the courts look more like the country they serve.
The Supreme Court’s first African-American justice, Thurgood Marshall, was appointed in 1967.
