Donald Trump Proposes Hiring Massive Cadres of Black, Hispanic, and Muslim Federal Judges
Or so we must suppose. Donald Trump has repeatedly insisted that an American federal judge of Mexican ancestry is biased against Trump because of his Mexican heritage, and has also said that a hypothetical Muslim judge would be biased against Trump just because the judge was Muslim.
If hypothetical judges are biased against people who do not share the judge’s race or creed, then judges who are white cannot fairly judge cases involving non-whites, and judges who are Christian cannot fairly judge cases involving non-Christians. If Trump is systematic in applying his theory of race bias, every racial-religious combination in America must have its own judges — all to avoid bias.
The alternative is that Donald Trump hasn’t thought beyond his own interests. Which alternative do you think is more likely?
