Mission Accomplished for the VRA

In an editorial in our Columbus Dispatch, he entitled ‘Mission Accomplished for the VRA,’ George Will apparently cannot see the real implications of Justice Robert’s ‘But history did not end in 1965.’ Ever new ways to discriminate against voters continue unabated and the recent SCOTUS decision only opens the floodgate. Or as the Star Tribune cartoon correctly interpreted on the same page in the June 27 Dispatch, voter discrimination has been released from being under lock and key. Watch Texas (and probably other States) rush to impose Voter ID laws now and you will see how narrow is Mr. Will’s focus. Apparently George Will is as mired in his own privilege as is Paula Deen.
