"I have been tense lately… just thinking about the new Star Wars sequel. I’m worried they’ll rely too heavily on CGI and I’m carrying it all in my shoulders."

Race matters. Race matters in part because of the long history of racial minorities’ being denied access to the political process…

Race also matters because of persistent racial inequality in society—inequality that cannot be ignored and that has produced stark socioeconomic disparities…

And race matters for reasons that really are only skin deep, that cannot be discussed any other way, and that cannot be wished away. Race matters to a young man’s view of society when he spends his teenage years watching others tense up as he passes, no matter the neighborhood where he grew up. Race matters to a young woman’s sense of self when she states her hometown, and then is pressed, “No, where are you really from?”, regardless of how many generations her family has been in the country.

Race matters to a young person addressed by a stranger in
a foreign language, which he does not understand because
only English was spoken at home. Race matters because
of the slights, the snickers, the silent judgments that
reinforce that most crippling of thoughts: “I do not belong
here.”

Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor dissenting in Schuette v. Bamn (2014)

Today’s decision eviscerates an important strand of our equal protection jurisprudence. For members of historically marginalized groups, which rely on the federal courts to protect their constitutional rights, the decision can hardly bolster hope for a vision of democracy that preserves for all the right to participate meaningfully and equally in self-government.

I respectfully dissent.

Supreme Court Justice SONIA SOTOMAYOR, concluding her forceful, data-driven dissent in Schuette v. BAMN; her dissent begins on p. 51. (via inothernews)
