White republicans became ham-fisted in their attempts to block President Obama. They worked against him like they had no other in the final two years of his presidency.

But President Obama had already done a lot of work to change the face of our courts. He put a lot of women and non-white males in place. 

from 
THE NEW YORKER, 2014 
Obama’s judicial nominees look different from their predecessors. In an interview in the Oval Office, the President told me, “I think there are some particular groups that historically have been underrepresented—like Latinos and Asian-Americans—that represent a larger and larger portion of the population. And so for them to be able to see folks in robes that look like them is going to be important. When I came into office, I think there was one openly gay judge who had been appointed. We’ve appointed ten.” 

In other words, President Obama started making sure our American courts started looking more like America. Whites should be 64% of any group with any kind of authority and no more than that.

It's important to know what happened before, so you can understand what's happening now. Recent black history, made by Barack Obama, is key to what is happening now.

Part of our safety depends upon the judicial appointments President Barack Obama made. Chump is having a hard time getting things like his Muslim Ban past Obama's judges.
