Hot take: Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson says racism will get worse


Supreme Court Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson famously refused to say during her confirmation hearings in 2022 what defines a woman.

Sen. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn.,  asked the then-Supreme Court nominee: “Can you provide a definition for the word ‘woman’?” Jackson responded, “I’m not a biologist.” 

But if she doesn’t understand what males and females are, Justice Jackson evidently knows what race is, as she scalded her colleagues on the U.S. Supreme Court over their decision to end college race-based admissions.

Jackson said in her dissenting opinion, “No one benefits from ignorance. Although formal race-linked legal barriers are gone, race still matters to the lived experiences of all Americans in innumerable ways, and today’s ruling makes things worse, not better. The best that can be said of the majority’s perspective is that it proceeds (ostrich-like) from the hope that preventing consideration of race will end racism. But if that is its motivation, the majority proceeds in vain. If the colleges of this country are required to ignore a thing that matters, it will not just go away. It will take longer for racism to leave us.”

Thursday’s Supreme Court decision rolled back the affirmative action law that allows colleges and universities to use race as screening tool. Harvard University and the University of North Carolina were the defendants in a case bought by Students for Fair Admissions. One of the problems the majority identified is that affirmative action programs have to end at some point, and there’s no clear way to say when system racism ends.

Chief Justice John Roberts, wrote that the programs that weed out Asian and white students “lack sufficiently focused and measurable objectives warranting the use of race, unavoidably employ race in a negative manner, involve racial stereotyping, and lack meaningful end points.”

Jackson recused herself from the Harvard case, because she has had a role on the university’s governing board. Her written opinion was in response to the University of North Carolina case.

“With let-them-eat-cake obliviousness, today, the majority pulls the ripcord and announces ‘colorblindness for all’ by legal fiat. But deeming race irrelevant in law does not make it so in life,” Jackson wrote. “It is no small irony that the judgment the majority hands down today will forestall the end of race-based disparities in this country, making the colorblind world the majority wistfully touts much more difficult to accomplish.”

Harvard University responded to its loss in the 6-3 decision with a statement that said it will instead now rely on college essays that have students discuss how race has affected “his or her life, be it through ‘discrimination, inspiration, or otherwise.’ We will certainly comply with the Court’s decision,” the school said, giving its carefully-worded middle finger to the Supreme Court in a reference that indicates it will continue to discriminate against white and Asian students in favor of other races, but in new ways.

President Joe Biden’s comments were to be expected. In a long statement from the White House, he told reporters, “The Court has effectively ended affirmative action in college admissions. And I strongly — strongly disagree with the Court’s decision.”

When asked if the court had gone rogue, he replied, “This is not a normal court.”


  1. “It will take longer for racism to leave us”
    Gosh Judge racism was extinct until the lefties started screaming racism as soon as Obama started using it as a tool for reparations for all his “brothers” who were incarcerated for crimes that they were forced to commit out of desperation for being too lazy to get a job and earn a paycheck to help their baby mama raise their children.

    Then enter Donad Trump because the middle class Americans got tired of footing the bill for the welfare class with Obamacare.

    Thats when racism really got a foothold and they celebrated racism with the summer of love by burning down cities and even colored owned businesses. Thats how pissed they were.

    She is foolish enough to think racism will just leave us when thats all we hear from them.
    A tool to get money and power.

    Now they even call justice Thomas a white supremecist.

    The only direction we will go is more Racist just as the events that led up to the civil war.
    History will repeat itself if the radical left continues assassination attempts on supreme court justices and eventually succeeds.
    What an inspiration she is to her “people” just as Kamela Harris was by going on national TV and telling the rioters and looters NOT to stop!

  2. For someone said no one benefits from ignorance, she sure put it on display.

    Owned herself, and didn’t realize it.

    • “Owned herself, and didn’t realize it.”

      Unintended irony at its finest, I sure do enjoy unintended irony.

  3. Actually, I read it was a 6-2 decision. Jackson had ruled in this matter and was recused (?).

    She did, however, embarrass herself in the dissent.

  4. It’s not that racism will get worse, it’s the expectancy of free things and preferential treatment that will make them resentful when they actually have to work for the same thing that others have to work for …….
    like studying hard to get into law school or getting high marks for a job with the Attorney General’s Office.
    Justice Brown is an absolute moron, and, a racist.

    • Well, what do you expect from a moron, racist president who wanted only to put a Black woman on the Court? Don’t blame Judge Brown Jackson, she’s just a quota satisfier for the stupid Democrats.

  5. Flip flop Biden has to throw in his two cents worth after ranting about bussing blacks during the desegregation days.
    What were his remarks about him not wanting his children going to school in a “Zoo”?
    And now He strongly-strongly disagrees with the courts decision?

    Who is propping him up and pulling his strings?
    By the way where is cornpop?
    Where is my ice cream?
    Who’s on first base?
    What a joke!

  6. Yeah, Ketanji, and you would know about racism getting worse — because it is you and your neo-Marxist radical leftist extremist bedfellows who are pushing it, and making it so. But that is OK, because everyone with a quarter of a brain knows that you are nothing more than a China Joe diversity hire, and all of your future Supreme Court decisions can be assumed to be invalid and illegitimate, as is your sullying presence on that body.

  7. KBJ proved that she is willfully ignorant when she refused to explain what a woman is. Yesterday she also proved what a slimy human being she is. When making decisions based on race is illegal, in America, that means it is illegal for ALL races to use as a weapon. The argument has been rightfully made that many groups have been socially and even legally diminished in our countries history. We have examples of slavery, military actions against, and social ‘shut outs’. And, while we cannot legislate what people feel in their hearts, the days of legally holding a group as second class is over. It’s simply not tolerated by most citizens.

    These Ivy league policies were specifically designed to keep Asian student numbers down. The people in command there, decided that ‘to many’ Asian students were being admitted when the usual metrics were used to examine student applications. Close your eyes for a moment and imagine that someone told you that Harvard wanted to stop ‘the wrong people’ from being allowed into their school. Yeah. Exactly. Sounds like we’ve jumped back to the 50’s and 60’s when black Americans really started to legally challenge THEIR exclusion from many organizations.

    So, Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson, of the supreme court, if excluding black citizens from Harvard was illegal back in the 60’s (and it was) what makes excluding Asians from Harvard ok now? One cannot rectify bad actions from the past with more bad actions today, even if you turn the tables on the actors. Racism is either illegal or it is not. It cannot be illegal when black citizens are the victims but legal when Asian citizens are the victims.

    If KBJ wants more black citizens to get into Harvard, then start sponsoring programs to incentivize and reward black students for higher grades and better academic performance.

      • Where is the the United Half Breed Fund? I’m a Half Breed, and anyone calling me bi racial would most likely get slapped by my sainted 89 year old Mexican Mamma.

      • Well, I was referring specifically to KBJ as I’ll bet she is not a member of UNCF.

        I find your come back interesting. You refer to black Americans as ‘they’. Are black citizens different somehow than other Americans, in your eyes?

  8. ” giving its carefully-worded middle finger to the Supreme Court in a reference that indicates it will continue to discriminate against white and Asian students in favor of other races, but in new ways. ”

    Until the law suits come rolling in for racial descrimation against White and Asian students.

  9. So in her world racism is OK if the “right” race(s) benefits?

    After all, Asians are nearly white to many on her side.

    • This is well discussed in the two hundred plus pages of the opinion and dissents. The notion that people will nicely fit into racial categories is complete nonsense.

  10. KBJ, herself a beneficiary of racial discrimination (Biden said he picked her because of her race), says racism will get worse now that institutional racism has been ruled illegal.


  11. A wise man said, “if you want to stop racial discrimination, stop discriminating based on race.”

    • I believe you are paraphrasing Chief Justice Roberts in the 2007 decision on Parents Involved in Community Schools v. Seattle School District. Yeah, the Chief has this one right but he has, it seems, an equal number of cases wrong these days.

  12. Somewhere Ted Cruz facepalmed. He predicted exactly these kinds of ruling and was called “racist”.

    Suppose if you don’t have a legitimate argument, go with what works.

  13. Just think there are people out there that believe this garbage. It’s like the left is pushing for a race war. Everybody needs to step back and take a look at what is being pushed down our throats by the politicians.

  14. Ignorance will rise based upon someone’s political agenda. Little Miss Ketanji knows she got there because of racial preference. She can do no other than support it. She isn’t smart enough to clerk for Clarence Thomas.

  15. As defined by the Cambridge Dictionary:

    systemic racism
    noun [ U ]
    /sɪˌstem.ɪk ˈreɪ.sɪ.zəm/ /sɪˌstem.ɪk ˈreɪ.sɪ.zəm/
    policies and practices that exist throughout a whole society or organization, and that result in and support a continued unfair advantage to some people and unfair or harmful treatment of others based on race

    Today the Supreme Court of the United States ended legalized systemic racism by Harvard and the University of North Carolina, and by all other Universities by proxy. Thuis ruling against systemic racism will be heard far and wide and will impact all forms of system racism known as Afirmative Action. No longer will Asians and White students be bypassed because of the color of their skin, they will be judged by their accomplishments. No longer will people of color be thought to be less than Asians and White people and need a different measuring stick because systemically racist people think they are incapable of performing the same because of the color of their skin.

    • Bingo! The left have been complaining about “systemic racism.” Well, now we’re getting rid of it. The left should be happy about this.

  16. As it turns out the liberal universities were the ones that were racist. They denied entry to many very intelligent Asians & Latinos. As for the African American, if you want to go to college go, the only person holding you back is you, also know you may need to work nights and weekends as well as holidays to pay for your college education, nothing worth having is free. The Obama administration as well as Biden administration set the race relations back 50 years or more in this country. I myself am sick of hearing about any of it; get a job, get educated, get married, raise a family, uphold the laws of our country, and love America — that’s all I ask. America is still the greatest country on earth. If we lose it, we have lost everything, and that goes for every color of human, and every political denomination. We lose, everyone loses.

  17. If “Affirmative Action” were called what it is, ‘racial discrimination’, there would be far less support for it. Here, we have a moron judge telling us that she supports racial discrimination, something the majority of the Supreme Court correctly says is unconstitutional.

  18. So, understand the affirmative justice just understood how SHE (as an individual) got her seat. Others of all races EARNED the seat…but remember Joe openly stated what HE wanted on the bench and race did matter 100 percent!

    Biden Promised to Put a Black Woman on …
    WebJan. 26, 2022 The retirement of Justice Stephen G. Breyer will give President Biden a chance to make history, and to make good on his …

      • I don’t know Paul, he already appears to have trouble filling out a basic court disclosure form.

        • Oh Mo, Wrong again!
          Thomas did not have to disclose hospitallity stays at the time and the sale of his mother’s home at $130,000, of which Thomas only recieved a 3rd, was an accounting error.
          Now, you want to talk about the Biden Crime Family?
          Here’s an L for you. Wear it.

        • Sorry Maureen. I’ll have to give Thomas a pass on that issue, since paperwork can be very complex, it will never be as complex as the typical woman.

    • Here’s your night court Judge in action.


    • Sad sign: oh “Frank”…

      Funny thing. Her dissent is poorly written, fails to tangibly argue a cogent rebuttal, and has substantial factual errors.

      Thomas’ concurrence tears her a factual new one. With facts, well reasoned specifics, and grammatically correct.

      Nobody hates successful black men like white liberals.

    • Give us a break already, Frank.
      KJB has a brain? I haven’t seen anything showing that to be true. I guess you think black men aren’t intelligent enough to be on the Supreme Court….very telling.

    • Frank, I am certain that you are an educated man and likely have at least a modicum of understanding of the U.S. Constitution and the other founding documents. If I am correct about the above I would suggest that you actually read some of Justice Thomas’s opinions. It may help clear up some of the misconceptions you are laboring under regarding Justice Thomas.

      As it relates to Justice Jackson, I think one should distinguish the difference between being clever and being intelligent. Her response to the question of defining what a woman is may have been clever but it certainly didn’t reveal much about her intelligence or judgement, unless of course you want a group of leftist indoctrinated teenagers on the Court.

  19. Things will get worse racially because the left wants things to get worse racially.

    I’m old enough to have seen the Civil Rights movement play out. At nearly every turn it was the Democrats who pushed for a racially unjust system. And continue to do so to this day.

    From Jim Crow to Harvard University it has almost always been driven by the leftist elite.

    It was bad enough the lower class whites didn’t know their place, they would be damned if the had to make room for “coloreds” and Jews as well.

    What changed in the 60s? The left got buddy buddy with the Soviets, and the Soviets wrote the book on how to bring down a society. From that time forward, we’ve been building towards this.

  20. The Babylon Bee nails it.


  21. Geraldo Rivera (Gerry Rivers) says he was a result of Affirmative Action.

    Proof positive it didn’t work.

  22. So let’s get it straight. She was asked, what is a woman? She answered, “I’m not a biologist.” Everyone cringed at her ridiculous failed attempt to be nimble… which only served to reveal a condescending, low-intellect mind-set. She fails to see her reasoning precludes her from ever judging any matter for which she does not have advanced academic qualifications.

  23. How many times has it been said that Alaska is unique and is number one in the nation for domestic violence, etc., etc.? Federal, state, and tribal laws do not protect many Alaskans or Alaska Natives from discriminations and domestic violence abuses. Senator Murkowski’s statement on DOJ indictment of former President Trump was “As I’ve stated before, no one is above the law but everyone is innocent until proven guilty.”

    There are perpetrators of domestic violence, sexual misconduct, liars, etc., etc. within tribal government(s) and tribal government entities that because of sovereign immunity and the good-old-boy/gal connections that are above the law in Alaska. Senator Murkowski needs to return to Alaska and define for many Alaska Natives the crystal clear roadmap that shall ensure that all Alaskans constitutional and civil rights shall be protected, and perpetrators of domestic violence and other lewd criminal acts will be prosecuted. Senator Murkowski’s statement about no one is above the law is not true for here in Alaska.

    President Obama signed the Tribal Law and Order Act into law on July 29, 2010. The Tribal Law and Order Act helps to address crime in tribal communities and places a strong emphasis on decreasing violence against American Indian and Alaska Native women.

    Legislator Letter dated June 18, 2021 Senator Murkowski writes to the NCAI Board, Tribal Leaders, and Conference Attendees that Alaska is home to 40 percent of all federally recognized Tribes…During my time on the Indian Affairs Committee, I helped shepherd the reauthorization of the Indian Health Care Improvement Act and Tribal Law and Order Act through the Senate. ‘

    Alaska needs judicial reform. SCO 1993 violates our constitutional right to go before a grand jury. Alaskans no longer have a remedy to correct a wrong, an injustice that has happened to us as individuals, to our children and to our grandchildren.

  24. One of the fun things about all this is Jackson’s dissent is poorly written and factually inaccurate.

  25. That statement coming from the mouth of a women nominated to Supreme Court solely based on her skin color. What a hypocrite .

  26. “It will take longer for racism to leave us.” Considering Brown-Jackson has a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court, it’s going to take at least that long for racism to leave us.

  27. Every Republican that voted to confirm Jackson for the SCOTUS should be voted out of office. The woman is a Marxist & embarrassment.

  28. “race still matters to the lived experiences of all Americans in innumerable ways” How come there ain’t no Asian brothers or sisters on the court?

  29. She’s a really dumb person who was given her position by a even Dumber Person, pathetic pathetic pathetic!

  30. They prey on the poor minority’s. Sharpton, Jackson, her , they down talk and push these people down. Hell has a special place for them. They thrive on chaos and misery riding around in their limousines with armed body guards.

    • Wayne, I understand your concern here, but wouldn’t doing so actually silence some? Living in this racist/ oppressive society we often find examples of people being silenced and or canceled for voicing their opinions on a subject that runs counter to the Establishment. Shouldn’t we make at least some exceptions? Beyond that, prohibition of nom de plumes could tamp down artistic creativity. Accordingly some have adopted a different approach, if one makes a comment using their real name, like in the case of Frank Rast, one should respond with one’s real name, (Wayne Coogan) however if Masked Avenger makes a comment, well then it’s Cartoon Time and one can employ any name based in fantasy or history that they deem fit to use in their reply.

      Beyond that, why should Suzanne allow the use of monikers like “Voice of Opposition to Tyranny”? Come on Wayne, monikers like that sound much like the “new and improved” message one used to see on dish soap bottles.

      • Dear Mr. Finesse,

        A further objection to Wayne’s objection to anonymity here is that nobody, except possibly for Suzanne Downing herself, would or could really know if any putative ‘real’ name being used here is that person’s real name.

        I could have gone by the handle “John Smith” here, and would anyone be able to know if that were my real name or not?

        • It would be impossible for me to verify. I don’t have the resources for that. – sd

  31. Actually, since humans have achieved endangered species status on this globe it no longer matters what tincture of melanin you have. We are glad you are here.

  32. For a women who could not even define what a women was while being confirmed, how would she know anything about race or racism, the truth is she and her mentors do not ever want racism to end, that’s exactly why she’s a total race baiting Jack rear who’s entire existence depends entirely on the narrative of Racism to go on forever . This women has no business being a judge at all, she’s a radical activist and a rabble rouser, but she’s a perfect choice for a looney administration who’s goals are to divide and conquer our country. As much as I disagree with The other 2 radical leftist on the court, at least they don’t appear to want to totally destroy the country and Promote the racism narrative, but this newest idiot on the court is a flat out trouble maker who was indoctrinated years ago and programmed by the other psychopaths in her party as well as the Universities she attended where she was brainwashed ! She’s a very sick and angry person .
