First Asian-American To Head CA Supreme Court

I bet Asian-Americans are just ecstatic over this news. I bet they’re rioting in Chinatown and overturning cars and just going crazy with joy. Wow, one of their own will head the prestigious California Supreme Court.

Perhaps Asian-American kids will now have a role model. I wonder if they will start studying in school? Perhaps doing wuch work will no longer be regarded as “acting white” in Asian-American life.

It’s morning in America!

The Los Angeles Times reports: Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger nominated 3rd District Court of Appeal Justice Tani Gorre Cantil-Sakauye as the next chief justice Wednesday morning, which would make her the first Asian American to lead the state’s judiciary and give the California Supreme Court a female majority for the first time in its history.

Cantil-Sakauye, 50, a Sacramento native who rose through the trial courts, served as deputy legislative secretary and deputy legal affairs secretary under former Gov. George Deukmejian. He plucked her from the Sacramento district attorney’s office and later appointed her to the Sacramento Municipal Court.
