2021-06-13 How Shelby County V. Holder Broke America

I’m reading chapter 14 of ‘Doubt Is Their Product’ by David Michaels. They talk about the Shelby amendment that applies the freedom of information act to research data.

While searching for that I came across this article in The Atlantic. It’s about the Shelby County v. Holder decision by SCOTUS that requires congress to come up with a new preclearance to prevent the Jim Crow laws that were once banned. Now the state legislatures are trying again to make laws to allow racial discrimination even they don’t have outright racial language. Therefore every jurisdiction has to take the laws to court to get them struck down.
