The six Republican senators who voted against Sonia Sotomayor can kiss off any support from the Latino community. Sotomayor is Puerto Rican but even Latinos here in the U.S. from other countries like Mexico will not look kindly on the rejection of the first Latina to be nominated to become a Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court.

Republicans like John Cornyn, Orrin Hatch, John Kyl and Jeff Sessions practically reek disdain for a lady who represents the Spanish heritage and culture in the New World. This is the reason why they so strongly objected to Sotomayor's reasonable claim that she would hope a wise Latina judge would get decisions correct more often that white anglo men who had no experience in the Latin culture. Can there be any better example of anti-multi-culturalism? The Republicans illustrate a disdain and animus for anyone whose skin is darker than their lily white complexions or who speak another language, especially Spanish.

But these racist anti-feminists and anti-Latin Republicans will reap the results come next election. One thing is certain, Latinos will not forget the Republicans' condescending and dismissive behavior towards Judge Sonia Sotomayor.
