The latest group of Trump judicial picks

The Senate Judiciary Committee has approved 17 Trump judicial nominees.

They include Thomas Farr from North Carolina, who was opposed by the Congressional Black Caucus and has a long history of white supremacy.

Republican Senator Burr from North Carolina, who supported Farr, had previously blocked the Obama selection of an African-American woman for a judicial appointment.  African-Americans are 27% of the population of the area covered by the court but there had never been an African-American judge in that district.  Sad!
