One week before election day on Nov. 3, Amy Coney Barrett has joined the Supreme Court. Barrett is only 48 years old and could possibly serve more than three decades with the court. The Senate vote was one of the “closest in history” coming in at 52-48 according to The New York Times. A vast majority of Democrats were opposed to the confirmation due to her history as a conservative. Mrs. Barrett now serves on the highest judicial bench in the United States. The Supreme Court is essentially a last resort for appealed or disputed matters at all other levels of government including state, federal and local. It’s role is to protect civil rights and liberties thus forth upholding the Constitution. Do you think raising black (adopted) children has heightened her consciousness of systemic biases against Black people in America or nah?
