Yes, I do beileve that was the point!

The participants never answered the question of whether a Latina judge reaches better conclusions, but at least in some cases, it appears likely that she would reach a different conclusion from a white male jurist hearing the same evidence.

So says a study of racial harassment cases from 1981 to 2003, which indicated that even though the Judges followed the same procedural steps in trying their cases and formulating their opinions they were more likely to find for the plaintive if they were black, or especially if they were a black female, than if they were a white male.

That is an example of judicial activism if I ever saw one.  Activism that breaks along racial lines and is a travesty of justice.  So much for justice being blind.
