I find the decision interesting yet perplexing; it's like there was no real decision. Just my interpretation.
The decision frees nine (9) states from unjustified federal oversight as reinstated by the 2006 Congress based on a decades-old formula; and, it restores them to an equal footing with the remaining 41 states.

The Professional Black Grievance Industry cannot be pleased.

I'm actually talking specifically about statements made on this board. Sorry if I hadn't made that clear enough.

I agree that most of the racist posturing is part of the Internet Tough Guy Syndrome, but I think that the choice for people who feel powerless to work to try and establish a voice that they feel is powerful through racist speech is a meaningful one.

Yes, it is just people with little agency and education trying to be heard. But their choice of racist speech to try and be noticed speaks to their motivations.

Personally, I almost like it. You've got folks screeching epitaphs to the internet from their trailers and cold water flats while the rest of the world continues to move on without them. The contrast between the forceful nature of the words chosen with the utter powerlessness is beautiful and fitting.

On another note, your posts could be cut to the one-third their size and still retain their pomposity. Ms. MPNF may cut you a deal on her editing services, though the results may be even more entertaining.

If anyone here displays a bent for phony superiority and crass stereotypes, it's you, tramp.

Meanwhile the EU is in a wreck of demographic decline and sharia takeover.

I point out the truth about racial politics and the media. You twist yourself into a pretzel trying to defend the Third World society your people imported.

Most of the left are against the concept of a positive white identity, but most of them are also white, so it's hard to charge them as "racist against themselves", it's akin to saying a "self-hating Jew" is "Anti-Semitic"

Rhino is a racist, probably the only poster on here who can be correctly labeled one. Were he "privileged" enough to get into Columbia back in the day, he would have been bros with Holder.

Obama attacking SCOTUS...again.
And calling on Congress to do something about it.

Just another example of the Left/MSM's subversion of truth.

The majority opinion clearly states:

"Our decision in no way affects the permanent, nationwide ban on racial discrimination in voting found in §2."

Just hope he doesn't get another SCOTUS pick, or if he gets one after a GOP Senate majority in 2014, which means he would have to nominate a conservative.

With the Rinos we see today? He can nominate any far left woman or minority and confirmation is assured.

Depends on the size of the majority

Note who would become Chairman, either Grassley or Sessions.

Neither would let a leftist out of committee.

I haven't read the entire opinion, just skimmed the first few pages. In a nutshell, it looks like the Court found that Section 4 was a Constitutional restriction upon states' rights to administer elections when it was first enacted, but times have changed, and the locales previously falling under Section 4 no longer meet the criteria demonstrating evidence of racial discrimination in election processes necessary for enforcement.
I tend to agree, but racism still exists. This forum is clear evidence of that.
woof
I'm a bit ashamed to be pimping SCOTUSblog out so hard (though I'm not massively engaged in this area, so they're about the only folks I follow for it) but I'm in love with their Shelby commentary re: rigidity as it relates to location in combating race based voting rights violations in a flexible, changing world.

http://www.scotusblog.com/2013/06/shelby-comm...

Though I'm not entirely confident that we're going to wind up with a modern fix that's as effective and flexible in a context where less public attention is pointed at the issue.

Yeah. Ain't it funny that people only seem to cry about "judicial activism" when they don't like how the case turned out?
I don't think this is so much activism as it is stopping activism. Nothing wrong with requiring a government to prove a need for something before they enact it.
