On the same day when President Barack Obama unveiled the Rosa Parks statue in Statuary Hall at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C., The Supreme Court heard arguments that could throw out the Voting Rights Act.
I write "could," when it looks more like "will."
If you didn't think Conservatives wanted to take the country backwards before now, you shouldn't have any questions after this comment made by Justice Antonin Scalia in court today on Sec. 5 of the Voting Rights Act of 1965:
Scalia attributed the repeated renewal of Section 5 to a “perpetuation of racial entitlement.” He said, “Whenever a society adopts racial entitlements, it is very difficult to get out of them through the normal political processes.”
Let that sink in for a moment.
A shocking statement to be sure, but considering the source, it shouldn't be.
