Washington, D.C. –September 1, 2005 – The National Black Republican Association (NBRA) announced its support of the nomination of Judge John Roberts to fill the current vacancy on the U. S. Supreme Court. Judge Roberts is an extremely qualified nominee who has earned a well qualified rating from the American Bar Association; the highest recommendation the organization gives. The NBRA urges the swift confirmation of Judge Roberts by the United States Senate.

"The civil rights record of Judge Roberts shows that his beliefs and legal actions are supportive of the rights of African Americans," said Frances Rice, the NBRA Chairman.

While a practicing attorney, Judge Roberts participated in a program sponsored by the Washington Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights and Urban Affairs that helps to prepare entering first year law students from disadvantaged or traditionally under-represented backgrounds. A further indication of Judge Roberts’ concern for the rights of African Americans is the fact that he argued a case, without compensation, before the D.C. Court of Appeals on behalf of welfare recipients who challenged the termination of benefits under the District of Columbia’s 1982 Public Assistance Act.

"Judge Roberts’ outstanding record on civil rights is publicly available for anyone who wishes to know the truth," said Andre Cadogan, another NBRA officer, “His opponents are simply trying to distort the record of this talented jurist.”

About waynem

As a Minnesota based photographer and artist I have been greatly influenced by the Upper Midwest. I focus my skills and energies on portraits, landscapes, cityscapes, architectural and fine art work. My best work comes from images first painted in my mind. I mull over a prospective image for weeks or months, seeing it from different angles and perspectives, then finally deciding what to capture. The result is images that deeply touch people's emotions and powerfully evoke memories and dreams. My images are used commercially by companies and organizations ranging from Financial Services firms, mom and pop Ice Cream shops and The Basilica of St Mary to communicate their shared vision and values. Book and magazine publishers have featured my images on their covers. My photographs also grace and enhance the decor of many fine homes.
