“GOP v. Voting Rights Act”

William Yeomans writes for Reuters Opinion: “Put bluntly, if the court’s Republican majority strikes down this recently reauthorized, core provision of the Voting Rights Act – the most effective and revered of all civil rights statutes — the backlash will likely ensure that Republican presidential candidates will struggle for a generation to win more than a handful of minority votes. The specter of justices appointed by the Republican Party joining in the effort to suppress minority votes will likely ignite a new movement among minorities and their allies to protect the franchise against GOP attack.”
