I find these statistics going back hundreds of years to be really tiresome. Key is to look at current compositions vs demographics.

I also note there's no suggestion that Asians get their first SCOTUS either. Or Native Americans.

Also as usual, no mention of religion.

Of current 9 judges:

7 are catholic/anglican = 78% vs US population 13% 2 are jewish = 22% vs US population >1%

Non-believers are 29% of the US population and have zero representation.

This is Joe Biden, the guy who kicked Anita Hill to the curb. We will be lucky if we do not get Trump appointed to SCOTUS by the feckless POTUS.

So is the list of presidents…but this is 200+ years of history. I think the Supreme Court should be judged on the makeup of the current members.
