Ok, a Black judge gets appointed then what?
Is he supposed to "cut some slack" when a Black offender appears before him?
The NAACP is digging it's own grave, and don't know it. Young people barely pay any attention to them any more.
People are not that interested in race anymore, they just want a person that's fair,balanced, and honest.
the only people that are not interested in race are DEAD.

your people don't know what is fair, balanced and honest... never did, why you think there were civil rights legislation, etc.. put in place over the decades?

we demand (just like yourself) fair representation in every aspect of america life..and that includes court benches.
