In an article by AP writers Ben Feller and David Espo, Sotomayor had this to say about her pride in her ethnic background:

“I simply do not know exactly what the difference will be in my judging…But I accept there will be some based on my gender and my Latina heritage.”

Most Americans can read between the lines on that one. But just in case, composed below is a rephrased quote. It comes complete with subliminal messaging for those of you who still aren’t sure what Sotomayor really meant.

“I simply do not know what the difference will be in my judging (other than my bias toward Hispanics/Latinos)…But I accept (expect) there will be some (if not all) based on my gender (let’s don’t go there) and my Latina Heritage (I mean, hubris)”.
