The CBC points out that since President Obama took office, 173 of the federal judges he’s appointed have been confirmed and “a mere 32 were African-American (18%). Of 42 pending nominees, only 8 are black. Nationally, only 106 of the 874 federal judges are black (12%), including those on senior status.

You can STILL contact Senator Leahy, Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee by calling his office at: (202) 224-7703 or sending him an email at info@judiciary-dem.senate.gov to let him know that you oppose the deal.
