You would think if someone was smart enough to be admitted to Georgetown Law School, they would have a basic understanding of the First Amendment, and even more, an understanding that the United States’ Constitution does not support discrimination based on race, creed, color, religion or ethnicity. And yet, it seems as these students either do not care, or are just too stupid to read.

Georgetown University’s Black Law Students Association demands that professor’s job offer to be terminated after he tweeted that President Biden’s commitment to pick a Black female to replace U.S. Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer is racist.

Ilya Shapiro, who is currently director of the Cato Institute’s Robert A. Levy Center for Constitutional Studies, is supposed to be joining Georgetown’s law faculty in Washington, D.C., on February 1 as executive director of the Georgetown Center for the Constitution.

But his tweets’ suggestion that the best Supreme Court nominee could not be a Black woman has attracted outrage from the student body and other Twitter users.

After news spread of Breyer’s retirement on Wednesday, President Biden guaranteed that he plans to appoint a black woman to the high court, calling it “long overdue.”


It led to Shapiro tweeting: “Objectively best pick for Biden is Sri Srinivasan, who is solid prog & v smart [sic]. He has even identified the political benefit of being the first Asian (Indian) American. But alas doesn’t fit into the latest intersectionality hierarchy so we’ll get lesser black women. Thank heaven for small favors?”


Another tweet then stated: “Because Biden said he’s only consider[ing] Black women for SCOTUS, his nominee will always have an asterisk attached. Fitting that the Court takes up affirmative action next term.”

But Shapiro still wasn’t finished and decided to post a poll with the question: “Is

Joe Biden racist and sexist for saying his Supreme Court nominee will be a black woman?”

Shapiro has since deleted the messages. He did not immediately respond to a request for comment but apologized on Twitter.

“I meant no offense, but it was an inartful tweet,” he wrote.

The Black Law Students Association at the university is now demanding that Shapiro be removed from his post next week.

“Our concern and frustration is not rooted in Shapiro’s opinion that someone else is more qualified for the position. Instead, our anger stems from Shapiro’s suggestion that any Black woman, regardless of their qualifications, would be a ‘lesser’ choice for the Court,” the Association began.

“Shapiro’s racist rhetoric and continued association with the University sends the visceral message that even if Black women attend the best law schools, hold the highest clerkships, and serve on the most prestigious courts, they still are not good enough. Time and time again, black law students at

Georgetown are left defending their legitimacy at this institution and place in the law.

“Only after students, professors, and the media denounced Shapiro did he delete and regard his tweet as ‘inartful.’ But Shapiro’s statements were not just ‘inartful.’ They were offensive, racist, sexist, misogynistic, inflammatory, deplorable, insensitive, and unprofessional. We are disappointed and frustrated but not surprised.”
