A distinction without a difference

What the Supreme Court Doesn’t Understand About the Voting Rights Act

Here's what they DO understand: The Red States no longer try to change the election laws simply because people are black and brown. They try to make it harder for black and brown people to vote these days because they're DEMOCRATS. The right-wing SCOTUS has done its duty. To the detriment of the nation.

Got it in one!

(Also, if it's extremely difficult for working class and older black people to vote that burden of difficulty falls equally on working class and older whites.)

Wow, the things you learn from the Supreme Court. Why, I was amazed to find out that Paula Deen was the last racist left in the South! Will wonders ever cease?!
