布朗积克逊女士週四宣誓就任美国最高法院大法官， 是美国歷史上首任黑人女性出任此最高法院职务， 是司法史上的新页 ，也是当前最高法院遭到许多质疑之时由一位民主党派的少数族裔加入了高院行列。
她在四月份参院表决时以五十三对四十七票惊险通过任命， 共和党指责她对犯罪案之判决太过鬆懈， 而民主党讃掦维护公平正义。
一九七 o年出生在首都华盛顿，一直以资优生进入哈佛大学攻读 ，她曾経在联邦地方法院服务多年， 并撰文支持对白宫展开司法调查。
这位黑人女大法官表示， 她的父母生长在黑白种族隔离之年代 ，黑人小孩是不能和白人共处的， 但是她的父母教导她必须要苦干 ，这个伟大的国家任何事情都是可能的， 多少年后 一名黑人小孩成為了最高法院大法官。
我们也同感欣喜稹克逊大法官之成就為成千上万的少数族裔树立了重要之榜样， 也再次印证我们的社会虽然有诸多不仁不义及不公平 ，但是还是充满着出人头地之机会。
First Black Woman Joins The U.S. Supreme Court
Fifty-one-year-old Ketanji Brown Jackson was sworn in Thursday as an Associate Justice to the United States Supreme Court which makes her the first Black woman to become a judge in the highest court in the nation.
In her statement, Jackson said, “With a full heart, I accept the solemn responsibility of supporting and defending the Constitution of the United States and administering justice without fear or favor.”
She was confirmed with a vote of 53-47 in the Senate after a series of hearings where republicans said she was too soft on crime.
Born in Washington, D.C. in 1970, Jackson was raised in Miami and later went to Harvard Law School.
As a district judge she wrote a 2019 opinion siding with House lawmakers who sought the testimony of then-White House Counsel Don McGahn.
Jackson also said her parents grew up in the time in this country in which Black children and white children were not allowed to go to school together. But she said that her parents taught her the importance of hard work and told her that, “Anything is possible in this great country.”
Jackson also said, “I am standing on the shoulders of my own role model generation of Americans who never had anything close to this kind of opportunity, but who got up every day and went to work believing in the promise of America.”
Quoting the late poet, Maya Angelou, she said, “I do so now while bringing the gifts my ancestors gave. I am the dream and the hope of the slave.”
We are so glad and proud that Judge Jackson sets the role model for all of our minority community’s young people. If you work hard, good things will be possible in your future.
