That is a bit odd considering the enormous number of highly qualified black lawyers. But it is probably best that a black lawyer does not go before the five conservative judges. It could be like a high-tech lynching of the black barrister.

Since they are not lawyers like the 50,000 blacks who are, they are not counted in the consideration to practice before SCOTUS.
