Jerry Brown Criticized For Not Going Latino With California Supreme Court Pick

Goodwin Liu
​​​Today, Gov. Jerry Brown nominated UC Berkeley law professor Goodwin Liu to the California Supreme Court. Shortly after, Assemblyman Tony Mendoza, whose district includes Buena Park, issued a statement about the pick. In it, he congratulates Liu, yada yada, and then takes a shot at the governor for failing to choose a candidate "who would better reflect the diversity of California." Read: a Latino.   

See Mendoza's statement after the jump.

"I congratulate Goodwin Liu on his recent nomination by Governor Jerry Brown to replace Associate Justice Carlos Moreno, the only Latino Justice on the California Supreme Court.  Professor Liu's credentials are exceptional and I, along with my fellow members of the California Latino Legislative Caucus, am looking forward to getting to know him.

Unfortunately, with this appointment Governor Brown has missed an opportunity to designate a candidate to the Supreme Court who would better reflect the diversity of California.

The Latino Legislative Caucus has been working closely with the Governor's office submitting various recommendations of highly qualified Latino candidates to state boards, commissions, and judicial posts and will continue working with Governor Brown on future appointments and on issues of great importance to our community."

If confirmed, Liu would give the seven-member state high court a fourth Asian American justice, forming an unprecedented majority.

The California Latino Legislative Caucus has urged Brown to name another Latino to succeed Moreno. It states on its website: "We strongly believe that the Latino Caucus agenda is, in reality, the American Agenda."

Anybody who ever heard Mendoza speak would laugh at his comments, written by someone else. Mendoza is among the poorest public speakers ever elected. Seriously.

It's probably cause he can't speak English! Most of those illegal pendejos like gustavo can barely even speak Spanish! LOL

Speaking of which, check out these chula but chunky cholas, giving it up to the white man.

Their kids are named Sage (Mattson) and Grayson (McDaniel), pretty Anglo-Sajone, ¿ No? Small wonder Calvito has seemed sexually frustrated of late--even the mestizas know what is up.

Don't worry Gus, you can probably buy a wife from Columbia.

i thought a person of your intellect would see the obvious connection between this story and you... as your antipathy towards asian becomes clearer with each post (probably stemming from your break-up with your vietnamese gf)...and coupled with your pro-mexican viewpoint, i would like to know your views on this nomination and whether or not you agree with the contention that a latino should have been nominated... you can answer seriously or you can tell me to jerk off again, as per usual,  hahahaha

You're the one who brought me up (and brings me up) for no reason whatsoever. Don't feel bad—you and your other pendejos can all get together in your anti-Mexi circle jerk!
