13 posts in this topic

WASHINGTON, June 17 (UPI) --The U.S. Senate voted unanimously Tuesday to confirm the first openly gay black judge in the federal courts.

Darrin P. Gayles will serve in the southern district of Florida. He has been a Florida circuit judge since 2011 and was previously a county judge and is a graduate of the George Washington University law school..

Steve Adkins, president of the Miami-Dade Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce, said the 97-0 vote was a testimony to Gayles' character.

When I look at who should be a judge, I only look at what they have done to deserve being a judge. When he has the black robe on he should not identify as black, male or gay, but only as an impartial human being. Judges that are openly political get me really angry.

Except this is America so only the first 3 actually matter.

Edit: Not that I disagree with you.

The only people that care that he's black and gay are the ones that want to keep people to be divided. That's the only reason as to why it's pointed out.

IS this better or worse than an openly black gay judge?

Personally I'd like a Agnostic, because he'd be on the fence with both sides...
