Amusing point

If Kagan is confirmed, the Supreme Court will consist of 6 Catholics and 3 Jews, none of whom would have been considered to fit the core definition of “white” before the mid-19th century in America.

I guess we can finally lay to rest the WASP Empire then….

  1. Amusing but wrong, I think. English-descended Roman Catholics from Maryland would have been considered “white”: it was the Irish, and later the Italians, that the WASPS despised.

  2. “I guess we can finally lay to rest the WASP Empire then….”

    Or just mutter darkly about the international Jewish-Catholic conspiracy that controls the legal profession.

    I suppose we can safely discard the notion that any of these justices were appointed on merit.
