… in South Carolina, where DoJ has halted implementation of a voter ID law which South Carolina’s own statistics show would have a discriminatory effect on nonwhite voters. Lawyers for South Carolina, including Christopher Coates (infamous for the New Black Panther Party case) and the utterly despicable Bradley Schlozman (reports of his humanity are greatly exaggerated), are claiming the DoJ is violating white people’s civil rights. Yeah, right… tell me another one.
I can’t believe I’m reading this in 2012. It sounds more like 1957. I am sure they understand full well, in South Carolina as in Texas, that the intent of the law is precisely what they say it is not: to prevent African Americans from voting.
I admit to a different bias myself: having seen Bradley Schlozman on TV several times during the Bush Junior administration, I believe he should be thrown in jail for his arrogant, condescending manner alone… [/snark]
