Lacking Emphathy, Anyone?

An update on the Sotomayor-relevant decision that you probably read about today, having to do with the white firefighters in New Haven, CT.

Jamal Greene at the NY Times wrote this paragraph today:
Let it never be said that the Roberts Court lacks empathy. The court’s five-member conservative majority has shown plenty of empathy to corporate defendants, to police officers, to government officials, to prison wardens and, today, to a group of white firefighters.
Oh yeah, you mean that group: nazis, devil-worshippers, and white firefighters? I'm troubled by the tone, Jamal.
