    Cool 4-LIFE - In the Year 2022 Senate Vote 1st Black Woman on Supreme Court

    Senate confirms Jackson as first Black woman on Supreme Court

    The Senate voted Thursday to confirm Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court, felling one of the most significant remaining racial barriers in American government and sending the first Democratic nominee to the high court in 12 years. Jackson, a daughter of schoolteachers who has risen steadily through America's elite legal ranks, will become the first Black woman to sit on the court and only the eighth who is not a White man.

    She will replace Associate Justice Stephen G. Breyer after the Supreme Court's term ends in late June or early July. Thursday's 53-47 vote represents the culmination of a six-week whirlwind confirmation process for the 51-year-old federal appeals judge.

    It began in February with President Biden introducing Jackson as a distinguished nominee who would "help write the next chapter in the history of the journey of America" and reached a climax during two days of tense Senate hearings last month where Republicans sought to paint her as a left-wing radical who had cosseted criminals and terrorists, only for three GOP senators to ultimately reject those claims and support her confirmation.

    Underscoring the partisan tensions, Jackson's confirmation came only after the Senate Judiciary Committee deadlocked on her nomination along party lines and Republicans forced three procedural votes on the Senate floor this week. But Democrats said Thursday that her confirmation should a cause for national reflection and jubilation. "This milestone should have happened generations ago -- generations ago -- but we are always trotting on a path towards a more perfect union," Senate Majority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) said. "America today is taking a giant step towards making our union more perfect."
