voting

i am very very disappointed in the recent Supreme Court decisions about the Voting Rights Act. How can they do this? There is still much voting discrimination out there, and the work in many states for Voter ID laws are Orwellian, at best. This is just awful. A step backwards. Are we race-blind now? No of course not. Look at the horrible diatribe against President Obama. How many of them are simply based on the fact that he is black? Look at the difference between achievements of students along racial lines — between poor blacks and poor whites, middle class white and middle class blacks. What accounts for the disparities?
