It may be, but the position does require technical competency. SCOTUS justices are expected to know what they are doing and have a CV to prove it.
Why not just hire the Black woman without saying anything? Why are so called progressives so eager to disregard the merits of the people they want to support?
I live in Chicago, which elected a Black lesbian mayor 3 years ago and it turns out that was what people cared about - not her ideas (some good, some questionable) or her own prior experience (she had plenty to be a mayor on her own merit). I don't even think she's been a bad mayor, even if I don't completely align with her ideologically.
