SCOTUS Decision: It Will Be A Bumpy RideBy
This is America, and it is dying by inches of stupidity and greed before our very eyes. — William Rivers Pitt
From the Charlotte Observer:
RALEIGH Tuesday’s U.S. Supreme Court ruling on the Voting Rights Act could have far-reaching effects in North Carolina – affecting everything from voting districts to voter ID legislation.
The court effectively struck down a key part of the 1965 Voting Rights Act. Though it left intact Section 5, which gives the Justice Department special oversight over voting laws in some states, it nullified the formula on which that oversight is based.
No problemo, right? Racism is dead, dammit. Assertions to the contrary are just a lib’rul plot to smear tea party conservatives. Ask Paula Deen.
