    A University of Pennsylvania professor claims that referring to Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor as “passionate” is actually racist in nature and meant to delegitimize her.

    Dr. Nelson Flores, an Assistant Professor in Educational Linguistics at University of Pennsylvania and a blogger on the topics of “language and race in education,” made the claim in a tweet Tuesday night responding to media coverage of Sotomayor’s dissenting opinion in the recent Supreme Court ruling upholding President Trump’s travel ban.

    Major media outlets praised Sotomayor as “sharp,” “scathing,” and “passionate” for her dissent, but Flores argues that this language is not a compliment, or even an accurate description of Sotomayor’s actions, and that it is actually a reflection of endemic racism in American media.

    “Media: It is important to be civil as we disgree [sic] with each other. Sonia Sotomayor: Here are facts that show Trump’s travel ban is racist. Media: Wow! Sotomayor is really lashing out at Trump. She is so passionate!”

    quick question...

    Who once referred to herself as a "wise latina"? Isn't that a bit racist too?
