Voting Rights Act are about to be struck down by the supremes. This, of course, is not big news to many of you Negroes in America; you are all way too busy having fun to care.
I won't bore you with a bunch of inside baseball and lawyer talk, but the bottom line is this: There is a section of the Voting Rights Act which requires certain states -with a bad history when it comes to treating us black folks as equals- to get a preclearance from the feds before they can do any funny stuff with voting procedures in their states. Now a County in one of those states is suing because they didn't like how Congress renewed key provisions of the law a few years back. That's pretty much it in a nut shell.
"Shelby County’s lawyer Bert Rein argued that Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act – which Congress renewed for another 25 years in 2006 – is unconstitutional because the formula used to determine which states are covered is outdated – based on voter turnout and registration data from 1972.
The blatant racial intimidation and discrimination in voting procedures that prevailed in states such as Alabama when the law was written in 1965 and renewed in 1970, 1975, and 1982, no longer exist, the county says."
Not only does it still it exist, it has expanded to other states such as Pistolvania.
Anyway, it's not looking good for Section 5 of the Act, because those conservative judges and their boy Stephen actually seemed to be mocking the very idea of the law. (Well, not Stephen, he never talks, but we all know how he is going to vote.)
One Judge actually called it a "perpetual racial entitlement". Huh?
"It’s an old disease,” Justice Stephen G. Breyer said of efforts to thwart minority voting. “It’s gotten a lot better. A lot better. But it’s still there.”
Not only "there"; it's everywhere.
Finally, if this next story doesn't stop you Negroes from sneaking into movies I don't know what will. You all really need to stop doing what you see white folks do. They can get away with this kind of crap. You Negroes on the other hand, not so much.
"Lendsey and Delilha Harbin ... are facing felony theft charges for allegedly “movie-hopping” last Saturday night at a Portage, Ind., multiplex. The couple is accused of paying to see only one film, then sneaking in to another without paying another admission fee, according to The Smoking Gun.
Reportedly, the hitched pair sprung $6.75 to see the new Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson film, “Snitch,” but when they exited the movie and snuck in to the zombie thriller “Warm Bodies,” they failed to pay.
Two off-duty policemen were moonlighting as security at a nearby IMAX theater and just happened to be standing outside when “Snitch” was letting viewers out. One officer reportedly remembered Lendsey’s bright attire when he first entered theater No. 13, where “Snitch” was playing, and then noticed that the man was nowhere in sight. The second officer thought he had seen the Harbins previously “sneak in to movies without paying.”
The officer reportedly decided to search for the Gary, Ind., duo and found them in another theater waiting for the film “Warm Bodies” to begin. When the law enforcers asked the couple to produce their stubs for the second movie, they could not but admitted to police that they had previously snuck in to movies at the multiplex at least three or four times prior.
When further pressed, they also confessed they had been to a funeral earlier in the day and were not in their right minds.
The Harbins’ excuses apparently fell on deaf ears and they were taken in to custody and placed in a county jail. The pair were later released on their own recognizance." [Source]
Oh lawd! I think I am going to have to stop slipping those munchies into Mrs. Field's handbags. I kid, I kid.
Anyway, at the end of the day, it's the theaters that ought to be charged with a felony for robbing patrons with those outrageous prices for their nasty ass nachos and popcorn.
