“I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin.” – Martin Luther King Jr.
“The person I nominate…will be the first Black woman nominated to the United States Supreme Court.” – U.S. President Joe Biden
The nominee, is a Democrat Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, a capable candidate (any rejection of her would be due to the political bent of her judgments, and not because of her IQ).
I don’t have an opinion on Jackson, but her skin color or that she has a womb and XY chromosomes (is a woman) should have no bearing on whether one is nominated as a U.S. Supreme Court Justice. Such “affirmative action” hires only stigmatize those selected as not being able to earn their position based on merit.
As for the Republican Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, here is what he has to say:
Janna and I are incredibly happy for Ketanji and her entire family. Our politics may differ, but my praise for Ketanji's intellect, for her character, and for her integrity, is unequivocal.
