Seriously?A black man has obtained the highest office in the land.There are black men and women mayors of major cities now covered by the VRA.
Remember the 14th Amendment: “…equal protection under the law.”
It is now time to decide.Do I want and get special treatment due to race?ORDo I move forward, stand on my own and step out of the shadow of protectionism. If I clinging to the Voting Rights Act I will never be allowed “equal protection under the law.”
As long as there is protectionism, quotas, set-asides and the VRA, then someone will always be suspicion that I did not make it on merit alone, I got special treatment.
