This editorial cartoon was in Tuesday’s edition of the Oklahoman. As you can see, the image depicts Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor as a piñata. Seriously.
Sotomayor, if confirmed, will be the first Latina woman to serve on the Supreme Court. As I mentioned last week, her nomination has been met with much criticism by the GOP.
What do you think of the cartoon? Is it a statement about how Republicans plan to berate her at her confirmation hearing or is the image an example of blatant racism?
