As a protégé of Justice Breyer, Judge Jackson earned a reputation for pragmatism and consensus building. It’s part of why I nominated her twice – first as a district judge, and then to the U.S. Sentencing Commission, where she earned praise from both Democrats and Republicans.— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) February 25, 2022
I am already in my feelings about this 😪😪😪

Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson has 8.9 years of prior judicial experience.— Kaivan Shroff (@KaivanShroff) February 25, 2022
That’s three times as much experience as Amy Coney Barrett had.
You don't have to like Ketanji Brown Jackson's but you will respect her resume.. Harvard Law, Clerked for Breyer, Federal Public Defender, Appellate Litigator, Federal District Court Judge, DC Circuit Court judge. Like I said, you can dislike her but don't disrespect the resume.— 👑 Mr. Weeks 👑 (@WonderKing82) February 25, 2022
Y’all can miss me being surprised that the first BW nominated to SCOTUS is getting backlash when y’all spent the last several years normalizing vitriol aimed at the first BW VP.— Renee (@PettyLupone) February 25, 2022

Uplifting ALL Black women is a conscious choice that benefits us all.
An important part of Judge Brown Jackson‘s experience: her work on the US sentencing commission, which determines factors judges consider in sentencing defendants & how they should be applied. The court has critical sentencing issues to decide & will benefit from her expertise.— Joyce Alene (@JoyceWhiteVance) February 25, 2022
A high school teacher told Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson not to apply to Harvard University; to not set her sights so high. Now she may be the first Black woman appointed to the Supreme Court. Aim beyond the stars. Only you know your reach. #TheView pic.twitter.com/sf6puPm0GS— THEE Stephanie. (@qsteph) February 25, 2022
