Alito and Rosa Parks

I don't know Alito's personal beliefs, and this is anything but an accusation that Alito is a racists, but the irony remains that Alito's first visit to the Hill included paying tribute to Rosa Parks when so many of Alito's court decisions would preclude Americans, like Rosa Parks, from suing their employers for discrimination. Rosa Parks sparked may of the laws that Judge Alito now votes against.

Alito, accompanied by members of his family and Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-Tenn.), visited the Capitol to pay tribute to the late Rosa Parks, an icon of the civil rights movement, as her body lay in honor in the Rotunda.
