Roberts is unfit for Supreme Court because HE is RACIST, OR because GOVERNMENT is RACIST
Howard Dean said John Roberts must be rejected as Supreme Court judge because he's racist.

Barack Obama said Roberts is unfit because federal government's response to Katrina emergency showed how racist it is.
"I think what we do need to ask ourselves is whether he has the heart, the breadth of perspective and the recognition that historically the role of the court has been to look out not just for the powerful but also the powerless.
"I think that Katrina does indicate that we've got a lot of problems in our midst … in terms of poverty, in terms of the differences in life opportunities for blacks, whites, Hispanics," Obama said. "That has to inform how we think about every branch of government and their functions, and I think that the Supreme Court is no different."
