The Voting Rights Act: The Dunce Corner

Posted: August 28, 2016 by Nazim in Uncategorized

In part one of a two part CLIFFHANGER (!!!), this week’s episode introduces the Voting Rights Act, and specifically how it created a dunce corner for States who could not be trusted to pass fair, non-racist voting laws.  After the goodness of the statute is covered at length, Brett and Nazim discuss how the Supreme Court destroyed that part of the statute in Shelby County v. Holder.  General law talk begins around (03:44) but specific Voting Rights Act law starts at (10:10).
