Why the Heck do we Still Need a Voting Rights Act?!!

Submitted by on August 6, 2006 – 3:18 pm No Comment

During a recent daily read of the WST, I was drawn to topic – “Bush Signs Voting Right Act Extension”; the subhead read – Voting Rights signed into law for another 25 year.

Not being familiar with the Act, I was initially incensed by the fact that in this time and day, we still were messing around with legal aspects of voting for blacks. A quick read alayed my upsettedness some when I realized that the law was aimed at a number of Southern states that were still in the clutches of “Jim Crowism”.

Basically, what happens is periodically voting patterns are analyzed to see if blacks are being discriminated against in the voting arena. Owing to the state of affairs that still exist, I feel comfortable that such measure are still in effect because they are sorely still need.
