Sorry any congressional law that is open ended and on going w/o a termination clause is automatically suspect when it comes to creating and funding such work. Even LE agencies that come under Judicial oversight have a way to petition for release.

/yep the author is either racist or self serving. Since the original “perps” are no longer in power and in some cases the “victims” are now in charge and suffer under this funded oversight.

I doubt that any state is going to pass any legislation that would subject them to federal oversight again. As evidenced in the past election where you had selected precincts voting 100% to a single (Democrat)candidate, the issue that people are disenfranchised is effectively moot.

(And, I trust that if 100% of votes in a single precinct went to the other candidate, that Ms. (Mr.) Nelson would be the first to wave the “flag of malfeasance”.)

Playing the race card (again and again) only resonates with your audience that already embraces your theology of victimization. The rest of us prefer to look past the color of your skin. Move on.

@jaham, No, jurisdictions without such a history should not be allowed to pass racially discriminative laws. Generally speaking they don’t. Nice try, though.
