Supreme Court
Alabama lawmakers created a map with one Black congressional seat out of seven.

The Supreme Court on Thursday issued a surprising ruling in favor of Black voters in a congressional redistricting case, ordering the creation of a second district with a large Black population.

Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Brett Kavanaugh joined with the court’s liberals in affirming a lower-court ruling that found a likely violation of the Voting Rights Act in an Alabama congressional map with one majority Black seat out of seven congressional districts in a state where more than one in four residents is Black.

The case had been closely watched for its potential to weaken the landmark voting rights law.

The court had allowed the challenged map to be used for the 2022 elections and at arguments in October, the justices appeared willing to make it harder to use the voting rights law to challenge redistricting plans as racially discriminatory.

Roberts was part of conservative high-court majorities in earlier cases that made it harder for racial minorities to use the Voting Rights Act of 1965 in ideologically divided rulings in 2013 and 2021.

The other four conservative justices dissented Thursday.

    Good afternoon America,
    Thankfully The Supreme’s finally freed the Blacks in Alabama from the Democratic Plantation still being opperated in that district. Now Blacks in Alabama are truley Free, Free, Free at last to vote against the oppressive Democrats who have been holding them back since Reconstruction.
    Most Blacks in the effected district report they are interested in the Florida Governor Ron Desantis now that they will no longer be punished for failure to fall in line with there former Democratic Masters.
    It has been reported the Blacks in that formerally opressed district were unaware an actual Black Man, Tim Scott, is running for President. Also many Blacks in that Democratic Plantation District reported disbelife when told they no longer had to get permission to “jump the broom” which is the venaclur there for “getting married. In addition they are happy they now can legally teach their childern to read and actually send them to the school house.
    Thank you America,
    This is truley a great day for civil rights.

      Earl you know a lot. Maybe you can explain. I am wondering why the four dissenting justices are four of the conservative leaning justices, and why all four of the dook 4 brain leaning justices were for the majority ruling? That seems backwards for freeing people from Democrat rule. I am confused on this one! Thank you in advance Earl

      Utter nonsense! In the 1860s the Democrats did what you said. Times changed. By the 1960s Democrats had flipped positions with the Republicans and Democrats have been pushing for equality ever since. Not the Republican Party. It’s trying to suppress voting rights.

        Good evening Bill,
        Bill try adding some vodka to that dook 4 brains leftist koolaid. You will find the vodka to clean out your brain from years of leftist indoctrination.
        The crumbs the Democrats threw at our great nation’s beloved Black people was designed to hold them back and keep them from reaching for the stars.
        Black people finally wised up to you raciest Democrats and are leaving your dook 4 brains party at the rate of 6750 per day.
        Be ashamed Bill its time for you “better than thou white liberals to LET MY PEOPLE GO.
        Thank you Bill I’m glad we had this talk,
        Earl Pitts American
