Even the conservatives on SCOTUS admit that the law has been singularly effective in broadening and protecting the voting rights of minorities, which, in Chief Justice Roberts' twisted reasoning, is the prime reason for now gutting it: everything's hunky-dory, so why have a Voting Rights Act at all?
Don't look now but the conservatives on SCOTUS just substituted their opinion for the opinion of the Congress, which is precisely what conservatives mean when they chant "judicial activism."
And now, given license by the conservatives on SCOTUS to discriminate again, the states of Texas, Alabama, and now of course North Carolina are poised to enact and enforce harsh and discriminatory new voter suppression laws.
Way to keep the brown people in their place, SCOTUS! But this should give new energy to Moral Mondays in Raleigh.
