Supreme Court - South No Longer Racist, No Need for Voting Rights Act

Remarkable.  I guess none of these guys has ever actually lived in the South......or read a newspaper....or reviewed the 2008 or 2012 election data.

Strikes me as very similar to the late 1800's opinion that the Civil Rights Act did not apply to prevent separate but equal treatment.  THAT ruling didn't result in any laws authorizing discrimination toward blacks in the South.......well, OK, there was some....for the next 70 years.  But the 5 white gys have decided there isn't any more efforts at passing discriminatory laws in the South, so have at it Poll Tax supporters.
