    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.
    If you had familiarized yourself with VRA sanctions, you'd know that they've been applied to counties

    Yes, and your not knowing how areas are subject to sanctionss proves you haven't read it

    Are self-described "civil rights activists" ever not outraged?

    I always imagine them sitting around like the "**** you dolphins, **** you whales!" episode on south park, only dolphins = white people and whales = republicans.

    No, again it doesn't apply equally to all states. Read the act.

    There are no "sanctions" for murder, there are penalties. And the VRA heaps unequal treatment on those states who WERE slave states, NOT on those acting illegally now.

    Again, only certain counties, in certain states. That clearly violates the 14th.

The issue is not really whether there should be a law but to whom it applies. There are reportedly several places in the north where there are troubling things going on but the law does not apply to them so they get away with it because they do not have to have preclearance. I believe Harrisburg PA is one of the cities I have heard mentioned as being particularly offensive to minorities but since they were not covered in the original act, they can do whatever they want under the VRA.

    Then why not extend it to all 50 States instead? THe SC needs to stop legislating from the bench.

    So, you admit to not knowing what you're talking about but seek to excuse that by saying I don't either. Laughable argument.

    Prove that the VRA doesn't apply to every state. Please quote from VRA where it says it only applies to certain states



    There are no "sanctions" for murder, there are penalties. And the VRA heaps unequal treatment on those states who WERE slave states, NOT on those acting illegally now.
    Penalties are sanctions and VRA sanctions areas that are not in former slave states

    SCOTUS disagrees

    I see you still can't quote from VRA that says it only applies to certain specific states and areas
