Sotomayor repeatedly used "wise woman" or "wise Latina" in speeches
Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor delivered multiple speeches between 1994 and 2003 in which she suggested "a wise Latina woman" or "wise woman" judge might "reach a better conclusion" than a male judge... A draft version of a October 2003 speech Sotomayor delivered at Seton Hall University stated, "I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would, more often than not, reach a better conclusion." That is identical to her October 2001 remarks at the University of California, Berkeley...
A list of the times she's said various similar things would be helpful. Obviously, such thoughts are deeply ingrained. About the "wise Latina" comments, Barack Obama claimed (link) "I'm sure she would have restated it". Now we see that she repeatedly said the same thing that even Obama admits she shouldn't have said.
