    And the jurisdictions these laws applies to were subject to due process, AKA the legislative process
    The laws apply to all equally. What you are trying to mangle in here are the penaties applied to those who break the law.

    As for our "need" for the VRA. Again, it was unconstitutional from day one. However, it was allowed to go on temporarily because of the need to reach a parity, a balance in equal protections regarding voting which were greatly out of whack. The need to allow this unconstitutional measure has passed.

    At the very least, those who think the need still exists should be stumping for it to apply equally to all, bringing the VRA closer in line with constitutional requirements.
    You haven't proven that their only mission was to "bring" electricity to a certain region

    And SCOTUS has decided that VRA is constitutional, therefore it is.

    And VRA applies to every state

    You are just spitting and spinning with you hands over your ears. The VRA does NOT apply equally to every state, only certain states are required to check with the feds before making laws concerning voting in their state. You obviously don't know and didn't bother to read up on the REA before responding, so your ignorance is unexcusable.

    Show us. Link please.

    Oh and btw, if you took the time to familiarize yourself with the VRA as you should have, you'd know NY is not one of the tested states.

    No, and I suggest you read the VRA before you make further erroneous statements.

    He's entirely right.

    Some people just like getting their panties in a twist and shout racism.

    VRA, like murder laws, applies to every state

    VRA sanctions, like murders' sanctions, only apply to areas that acted illegally
