It's freakin deja vu all freaking over again! The South wanted the rest of the country to "mind their business" before the Civil War, and after. "Wah, wah, wah! We shouldn't have to prove we're not being racist before we do something racist!" The NAACP's Legal Defense Fund is filing a motion for a summary judgment to uphold the constitutionality of Section 5 of the 1965 Voters' Rights Act based mostly on the fact that racism is ongoing. And by ongoing, I mean that just recently as 2008, the DoJ disapproved the redistricting because it eliminated the city’s sole majority-minority district. Of course, nonminorities in Shelby complained that the DoJ had annulled the will of majority, "Wah, wah, wah! We don't get to exert political tyranny over our racial minorities!"
So, no. Until white Americans (Sorry, Canadians and Mexicans, and other inhabitants of North and South Americas. I'm thinking of using another term, but haven't decided yet.) get their shhh - er - selves together, don't expect the majority of black folks to support "states' rights" or buy into the whole "local guvment is best" business. Conservatives hate the over-reaching judiciary. That is, they hate it until Congress doesn't give them what they want. Then they're more than willing to tell the majority their concerns don't matter. And don't expect African Americans to just take white America's word that racism doesn't remain a constant negative impact in our lives.
This whole business has been going on since the summer. I don't know how I missed it, but I fully intend to stay abreast of the developments.
