Gender and heritage a frequent topic for Sotomayor
The federal appeals court judge divulged new details about her finances and provided three decades of writings, speeches and rulings that give both supporters and critics fresh fodder for the coming debate on her confirmation. They include more instances in which she said she hopes a "wise Latina" would reach a better decision than a man without that experience.

Wow! Read that sentence in red again.
Now look at the quote from her as reported last week in the New York Times,
"I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn’t lived that life,” said Judge Sotomayor..."
Yep, The AP censored out the word White in their quoting of Sotomayor.
Isn't that nice.
Also it's nice how they use the phrase "heritage" instead of race in describing the judges views on race.
Makes it sound so fuzzy and fluffy.
