Nearly three months after her confirmation, Ketanji Brown Jackson has been sworn in as a Justice on the U.S Supreme Court. She’s literally the first black woman in history to sit on the court and this 51 year old will take up the seat of the former and retiring liberal Justice Steven Breyer.
With her swear in, she has changed the face of the Supreme Court that has nine highest members and for the first time the court no longer features a majority of white men.
Donna Hill Station the former Maryland Deputy Attorney General says that she thinks its very obvious for the black community why having a pointed judge Brown to the bench is so important. She continues to elaborate on the matter that ” its also true for i think our country at large because it’s a statement about how far we have come in so many years for hundreds of years.”
Since Ketanji is replacing the retiring, she will not alter the courts 623 conservation majority, majority who’s reliably conservative decisions have recently called the reputation for judicial fairness into question and outraged millions of Americans.
