Pass The John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, Actions Mean More Than Hollow Words

Good old boys, from the Grand Old Party, are trying to resurrect their good old days. The Supreme Court of the United States of America, destroyed fundamental elements of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, permitting states to turn back the clock on equality by enabling racist voting election laws to be enforced without federal approval – the overseer’s are without oversight. In the flawed opinion reflected in the 5-4 vote from the Supreme Court, racism in America was viewed as over in their eyes. The New York Times reported Chief Justice John Roberts as saying the Voting Rights Act was, based on “40-year-old facts having no logical relationship to the present day.” Legend has it that Justices Alito, Kennedy, Roberts, and Scalia, consulted with the Caucasian clan’s right hand man, Justice Thomas, who informed his colleagues that racism was over. While singing Dixie, the justices got out of the way, allowing the South the chance to rise again. Voter suppression received a major assist from the Supreme Court, immediately following the 5-4 ruling, as states pounced on racial progress, by eliminating polling places, purging Black people from voter registration rolls, and creating discriminatory voter ID requirements. At this point, if the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, is not passed, we should not rule out seeing requirements for Black people to know the number of jelly beans in a jar, or the number of bubbles on a bar of soap. The number that does matter, is the number of people who vote. Secure, safe, sound voting for all Americans is required. And yes, the facts have a direct “logical relationship to the present day.”

Good people make “Good Trouble” walking in the footsteps of the, “Boy From Troy.”

John Lewis “got in the way,” the Supreme Court’s 5-4 ruling on the Voting Rights Act said: get out of the way John.
