Southern States Boo-Hoo

This is interesting:
The Supreme Court agreed yesterday to examine whether a central component of landmark civil rights legislation enacted to protect minority voters is still needed in a nation that has elected an African American president.
The provision (of the Voting Rights Act of 1965) in question requires "a broad set of states and jurisdictions where discrimination was once routine to receive federal approval before altering any of their voting procedures." Of the states in question--Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, Texas and Virginia--all but Virginia voted against Obama. So, because the nation elected Obama, but eight of the nine states named in this provision, did not, we no longer have to babysit them to ensure the minority folks in these states get fair play? Hmmm...
