In Response to Re: Heading toward the 19th Century:
If anyone has been reading the comics recently, the comic strip Doonesberry has had a new character, a talking black bird named James Crow who has been making the rounds of states that have passed voter suppression laws. Now it is official, Jim Crow laws are back.

It will be interesting to see how well the new Jim Crow fares in courts now that Republicans feel free to enact voter suppression laws where they can. It will serve them right to trigger the "bail-in" mechanism in section 3 of the VRA where federal courts can decide they are in violation of the VRA and place them under the preclearance of section 5. I can hear the howling now.
