North Carolina's illegal voter suppression law was struck down b/c as the appeals court judge said - "It targeted black voters with almost surgical precision..." The US Supreme Court also just refused to hear this case despite the fact that that court struck down an important facet of the civil rights voting protection in 2013 on the stated rationale that "we live in a post racial society" where blacks no longer need fear voting discrimination, which led to this case of voter discrimination being created after their 2013 ruling. Obviously the fact that ANY court of the land is having to hear cases like this one is evidence of such ongoing racial discrimination. Breathe deeply. Sigh. Send up a prayer of thanks that the SCOTUS just did the right thing, whether by reasoning and insight or by accident.
