Woke USA Today Article Claims SCOTUS Nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson Faces Similar Racism As Jackie Robinson

Another sports media company has decided to go for woke.

On Wednesday, USA Today Sports published a piece centered on comparing Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson to baseball icon Jackie Robinson.

Writer Mike Freeman inferred that the Republicans’ questioning of Jackson’s viability during her ongoing confirmation hearings have been comparable to Robinson’s troubles as an African-American baseball player in the late 1940s.

“Supreme Court Justice nominee Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson has faced blistering racism with calm and grace. So, too, did the legendary Jackie Robinson,” said Freeman.

Outspoken qualms aimed at Jackson during her hearings have centered around a progressive set of views on sex and race, which have mirrored the pillars of far-left politics.

On two occasions throughout the hearings, the Supreme Court nominee gave questioned responses related to lighter jail sentences related child pornography and a non-answer given toward defining a woman.

OutKick founder Clay Travis quoted Freeman’s article and contested whether USA Today Sports could stoop any lower with their woke editorial board’s agenda.

Jackson’s comparison to the Brooklyn legend wasn’t the first reference to Robinson this week.

An NBC columnist called for transgender Penn swimmer Lia Thomas to receive the same recognition that Robinson received when he broke the race barrier for the MLB.

Thomas’ inclusion in women’s swimming has been contested for the physcial advantages presented by a male competitior in women’s athletics.

USA Today’s gamble on woke sports coverage comes a day after ESPN’s unannounced tweet that vehemently opposed Florida’s ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill. The network previously held a moment of silence during a basketball game broadcast to show solidarity with the LGBT community.

The sports network’s verified Twitter account announced: “ESPN believes in inclusivity and denounces legislation and actions across the United States that infringe on any human rights. We stand with our LGBTQIA+ colleagues, friends, families, and fans.”

  1. So of all the hundreds of available judges out there, the best and brightest of the best and brightest minds in our legal system, the top candidates preparing all their lives to serve for life on the highest court in the land, those chosen to rule on decisions that affect history, Biden unashamedly appoints the one who can’t define what a woman is, thinks pedophiles need slap-on-the-wrist sentences, and won’t reveal her LSAT score. This is the SCOTUS mind you, not your local small county court? Show me how this is not sabotage of our nation.

    • It is happening everywhere. There was a Virginia Court of Appeals expansion in 2021 and all of the candidates were political appointments. One in particular, is one of the worst lawyers I have ever come across and had litigation matters against. Yet there this person sits as a Court of Appeals Judge. The more I hear Brown-Jackson speak the more I am reminded of this particular Virginia judge.

  2. Let’s face it. Biden doesn’t know what planet he’s on let alone research a qualified candidate for Supreme Court. The far left Marxists in his administration put this woman’s name up. When I view her confirmation hearings to Amy Coney Barrett there is no comparison. Barrett is so much brighter it’s incredible. Jackson appears to be someone you would see on the bench in traffic court. And Don Lemon calls her an “intellectual giant.” Oh my god, hahaha! She probably is for the 13%.

  3. I guess black “women” (because no Demokkkrat can define the term) candidates to the SCOTUS are infallible and above reproach, thus, no need to have confirmation hearings, just confirm or its racist. Boring.

  4. LOL. She wouldn’t even be the second black person to be a Supreme Court justice. As for the first, lets not forget that Biden did everything he could to prevent that from happening when Bush was president. But the rats keep following their racist pied piper.
