Justice Sonia Sotomayor mispronounced Kamala Harris’ name at her swearing-in today which, under THEIR RULES, makes her a racist, right?

Why didn’t Justice Sotomayor practice saying it correctly?
Somebody should've taught JUDGE SONIA SOTOMAYER how to pronounce the name of Vice President Kamala Harris. VP Harris repeated the words, but correcting the pronunciation of her name! Honestly, The judge should have made sure of the right pronunciation in such an historical moment

It’s okay when their side does it, however:
I love Sotomayor but she (slightly) mispronounced Kamala’s name.
Since VP seemed totally cool with it, so who am I to kvetch.
The Muzak version of “This Land” on the other hand I could not take.
But 4 years ago I was complaining about illegal emoluments —big improvement!

It’s “interesting” for some:
Interesting that Sotomayor mispronounced Kamala Harris’s name.

But others aren’t giving her a pass:
They butchered Kamala’s name in her VP swearing in. If that isn’t the most vivid depiction of the black experience in America then idk what is.
