    I think the Supremes were saying that the data used for the Voting Rights Act was 40 years out of date and to come up w/ “fair” ways of determining significant issues. Yes, it was needed in the 60’s. Now, Voting Rights should apply to ALL states, not just the southern ones.

    This is how the Repubs will win the next presidential election even though the majority of Americans will try to vote against their candidate. This way they don’t have to change their extreme views and they can continue their racist policies. They’ll just make it impossible or at least insurmountably difficult for minorities to vote. It’s a sad day for civil rights and equality in America.

    Ginsburg among others pointed to cases proving the law is still needed, and valid. The “righties”, yes formerly the “dixiecrats” in the Democratic Party prior to the Civil Rights Act, are pleased as punch to think they can keep on discriminating, and coming up with new ways to do it.

    This is a disgusting decision. From the New York Times:



    The decision will have immediate practical consequences. Texas announced shortly after the decision that a voter identification law that had been blocked would go into effect immediately, and that redistricting maps there would no longer need federal approval. Changes in voting procedures in the places that had been covered by the law, including ones concerning restrictions on early voting, will now be subject only to after-the-fact litigation.



    In less than two hours the Texas law went into effect. Looks like the Klan has its first black member.

    I knew and said when the Supreme Circus heard this case the majority (IN)Justices would decide the case in the way it most benefited the republican party. This is not a surprise, any means to their end.
    .
    Valid arguments can not credibly defend a false premise. To say the provision is unconstitutional because the data used is old is like saying the sky is not blue because clouds form .

    @dtroutma

    Why did Justice Clarence Thomas vote with The Majority on this decision? Is this so Districts with Black Panthers can discriminate against White Voters?

    @Tigger

    Of course he was…Scalia told him how to vote, and Clarence answered like he always does…
    “Yassuh, Massah Scalia, Yassuh!”

    @dannysixpack

    Yes, Since Thomas, who is not White, voted with the Majority invalidates Bennett’s claim

    No, it doesn’t “invalidate Bennett’s claim.” Whatever Thomas’ specious logic for his decision, Jim Crow is back out and back in action.

    There are no cases of voter fraud occurring at the polling place which is the only thing voter ID could stop. As for Thomas, he thinks because affirmative action helped save him a seat at a University (he did the work to stay and graduate), he is looked at with disdain. He is looked at with disdain, but as a Black person I’ll tell you it is because he doesn’t want anyone else to follow him.
