I am not thrilled by this appointment but I am pleased that there will finally be a second Latino on the Supreme Court(haha no one has heard of Benjamin Cardozo?). I am mostly happy with her desicions on the Court of Appeals too.

Cardozo was a Sephardi Jew of Portuguese descent, i.e. not a Latino.

Even the Portuguese connection is very tenuous: the family left the Iberian peninsula for the Netherlands during the Inquisition, then went to England, and then came to America before the Revolution.
Hey come on man, my race doesn't have very many accomplishments in this country. Tongue

Hispanics are not a race.  And the Portuguese are obviously not Hispanic.
They are generally somewhat of a culture though and almost all Hispanics share Spanish blood(not a common trait really). The Portuguese count to an extent, I think.
