Supreme Court must not roll back voting rights
It would be troubling — though perhaps fitting — if Alabama, the state that gave us the Voting Rights Act in 1965 because of its opposition to providing African-American citizens the ability to register and vote, became the state that would end a key part of the act. It could happen, but it shouldn't — and won't if the Supreme Court recognizes the significance of ensuring that history does not repeat itself.
