Ken AshfordConstitution, Race, Supreme Court1 Comment

During U.S. Supreme Court oral argument on the constitutionality of a key section of the Voting Rights Act this morning, several justices expressed extreme hostility to the civil rights statute, according to early reports from the courthouse. Justice Antonin Scalia called it “perpetuation of racial entitlement.” 

That's right.  Why should black people be entitled to vote, and why perpatuate it?


Apparently, there were audible gasps from the gallery.
