The Voting Rights Act decision takes away Federal control of local voting rules, especially in the South.

Robert Stacy McCain, who lives in the South, Tweets:

Sean Trende links to someone reacting rationally:

Melissa Harris-Perry (a nominally black lady professor) thinks this has taken away her "citizenship."

Matt Yglesias, who is nominally Hispanic, is going on about the evils of the old National Review.

Ask John Derbyshire if you don`t believe me.

P.S. Has Matt Yglesias visited Birmingham, Atlanta, or Memphis, recently to enjoy the consequences of Voting Rights Act? NRO staffers were a little freaked out by Charlotte, NC.
