Skip to comments.Do Asian Americans count as "diverse"?

New Jersey Democrats have long argued that they would approve only "diverse" nominees to the state Supreme Court. But now, as liberal opposition builds against Gov. Christie's most recent picks, the definition of diverse appears to be changing.
One of the two nominees, Monmouth County Superior Court Judge David Bauman, was born in Japan to a Japanese mother and would be the first Asian American on the high court.
Yet the Legislature's black caucus, the state Latino Action Network, and a broad coalition of more than 50 groups, including teachers' unions and Planned Parenthood, are opposing Bauman and the other nominee, Robert Hanna, who is white, primarily because they would not make the court more diverse - and specifically, because they're not African American or Latino.

Nope. Only the squeeky wheels (blacks and muzzies) count.
They certainly vote like “diverse” Americans.
Asians’ll count as ‘diverse’ the moment the democrats gain 70% of their vote nationally.
One of the most dissappointing stats...I thought they were smarter.
Just wait until they realize that ‘Latinos’ are white people from South America...
That’s exactly the percentage that voted for Obama in the last election, 70%.
No, because blacks hate Asians.
If they let this one get by, it's a slippery slope.
Your professional black hater class definitely hate Asians ~
Only if their viewpoint’s not slanted.
Just ask George Zimmerman.
Racists. They are full frontal in your face racists.
The longer you live here, diverse it gets.
Definitely the best line of the thread. You’re not from my area, because all the pop donellys I know are screaming liberals.
More proof that in the current racially charged environment there is no such thing as a 'natural republican' non-white constituency.
Definitely wouldn't want to get any gook on the pristine founding documents.
Especially not mustard.
They want to nip this in the bud.
