I got it. You're either white, or you're invisible.

And Sotomayor can use her life experiences to help her make decisions when she is appointed to the Supreme Court of Hispania.

Alito doesn't have to use his life experiences in the Supreme Court of Sicily, because he's white. His life experiences are therefore welcome on the Supreme Court of the US of A.

I get it. I see it now. Good thing we have the leader of the Colbert Nation to help us navigate politics and band aids.

PS - I've been wearing the green bandaids that have antibiotics on them. What does that say about my heritage?
