Seriously? Do you know what the act was? Deny people of color the right to vote? What makes white people in the south think their better than any race? Everyone has a right to this country, my best friend is a native American and ask them who belongs here because they were here first. You people are ridiculous with racism. Your NO BETTER THAN THE REST OF US.

Why don't you tell us what the "act" was? You are so smart that you are dumb...educate yourself before you mouth off. You are the one who is ignorant of "the act." What a racist fool you are.

"Texas Republican party proposing to repeal the Voting Rights Act of 1965"

cuz whites will be minorities in most southern states by the end of this decade. so this is their desperate attempt to hold onto political power.

nationally whites will be a minority by 2042, but this happens a lot sooner in the south.

Southern secessionist slaver scum!

We're supposed to forget that those bastards put the country through a bloody war in defense of their evil institution.

By contrast, Mexico abolished slavery as soon as independence was gained from Spain, in 1822. But then, Mexico is a socially more advanced nation than the USA.

We're supposed to forget that those bastards conducted a 15-yr gueerrilla war and campaign of terror, killing many blacks or any whites helping them.

I say that anyone who still supports in any way the Confederat perfidy or displays their Rag owes the rest of us reparations.

Or we could just take it out of their asses.

We've never needed numbers. All we need is the backbone to go ahead and get it done.

Oh, but if there's a war to defend us, we need them to sign up, right?

You must be an idiot? The biggest RACISTS today are Blacks. Cry about everything and whine about everything is the mantra of most blacks today. Especially the Black racist losers who vote DEMOCRAT. Blacks are citizens and don't need ANY voting acts rights signed.
Lets sleave the past in the past and move on. Blacks get no special rights and due to what happened in the past.

Black people have the free speech right to protest against police brutality, discrimination, and other subsequent ills in society. That isn't about human whining. That's reality. Your ancestors protested against colonialism that was inflicted upon them by the British Empire. If your ancestors did this centuries ago, we black people have the right to make our greivances known. Also, the acceptable black to you is the bowing down reactionary type of Negro.
Sorry, but most black people have a mind of their own and reject Tea Party logic. We accept environmental protection, our civil liberties being enhanced, and an end to any form of oppression against any human being. Also, laws come throughout human history to rectify violations of human liberties. The Voting Rights Act is still necessary, because it protects against violations to those valuable human rights. Extremists still exist that want the rights of black Americans to be eliminated. No real person advocates special rights. People want the extension of the same HUMAN RIGHTS to all people. For human rights is superior to states rights. The Federal Bill of Rights is superior to states rights.
Sometimes, the free market and private interests can't guarantee equal rights among all citizens or all human beings. These equal rights are sometimes fought for and people died in allowing the public to have the real liberties to come about. The past is the past, but even in the present, oppression is around. When oppression is around, we don't say let's ignore it. We don't say, let's miminize it. We say, let's fight it and eliminate all forms of injustices in the world society now. That's our job and black people are more than correct to advocate compassion to the poor, not austerity (and freedom not discrimination or intolerance). I prefer black people to be politically independent personally, but I precisely comprehend why most of my people are Democrats (since the Republicans are so extreme that even Eisenhower would be criticized by the Tea Party reactionaries. Nixon is more liberal than many Republicans today). Peace is also superior to war mongering and unnecessary militaristic aggression against sovereign countries in the world. So, black people should advocate social justice and pristine equality via any legitimate means necessary.
