More Mark Pryor Pandering...

We all know that Mark Pryor is up for re-election. So Pryor thought he could score some points with the black voters in Arkansas when he called on the Bush Administration to nominate a black person to the open federal judgeship.

Does he not realize that he is urging the Bush Administration to select a judge based on the color of their skin?

Since when did it become okay to hire someone based on the color of their skin? What would happen if I was looking to hire someone and the ad read: BLACKS ONLY!

More importantly, this is a slap in the face to the former judge, George Howard Junior, Arkansas' first black federal judge. Pryor's call to pick only a black judge leads one to think that maybe Judge Howard was only selected because he was black and not the most qualified. I am sure the Judge would reject that notion.

So why do we settle for race politics now from our Senator? Why shouldn't we select the best judge possible whether they are black, white or green?

Using race as a tool to win an election is wrong, although it is something we have come to expect in Arkansas.

We urge you to call Senator Pryor and tell him to support the best man or woman for the job, regardless of the color of their skin!
