Thank you Senator Nelson for voting FOR Sonia Sotomayor to the Supremes: Thank you Senator Nelson for voting for Judge Sotomayor to the Supreme Court. You showed great courage in resisting the hypocritical call of Republicans to disqualify any minority candidate who failed to meet the strict tests we must apply to white politicians when those white public figures try to discuss race. Puerto Ricans have been historically disadvantaged since we occupy their territory give their residents social security and subsidize their industries. Judge Sotomayor early on showed herself to be a fine example of the wise Latina woman in her Yale Law Journal Note that advocated massive reparations from the United States to Puerto Rico when it entered the Union.
