The decision who will be the next Louisiana Supreme Court Chief Justice has gone from the legal to the judicial with a foot and arm smack in the political arenas.
Then, this is Louisiana, after all where politics prime over everything imaginable.
However, in this case, the issue is not just politics, it is race.
Black versus White.
Many of the stalwart conservatives believe that Jeffrey Victory should be the next Supreme Court Justice while many of the liberals feel it should be Bernette Johnson who would be the first woman African American Supreme Court Justice in Louisiana.
