But, if that law has/had indeed accomplished its mission, and, indeed, made our vote just as even, just as fair, just as counted, just as important and substantial as anybody else's vote, BY LAW, then I would call it an effective
law.---EbonyRose


We want and fight for and demand a law that gives us a right that was emboldened to us in 1775 when the Constitution was written. BY LAW.

Now, if that isn't a more powerful weapon with which to fight for our right to vote than the 1965 Voting Act Right, then I'm the one who's got it all wrong. That is where I don't see the logic.---EbonyRose

The Voting Rights Act was written to PROTECT the right to vote on the basis of 'color and race.' It was/is to be the mechanism to enforcement the 15th Amendment, and the 14th.

The 15th Amendment was/is the primary focus BECAUSE that amendment is there to PROTECT the right to vote, BUT HAS NO MECHANISM FOR EFFECTIVE ENFORCEMENT.

THAT'S ALL IT SUPPOSE TO DO.

A lot of other wrongs need fixing, but this law is not the tool.

Nor was it intended to be the tool.

What you are/seem to be taking for granted, namely the ABILITY to vote, is what is being denied in the law.

IT IS THE REASON SOLDIERS STOOD AT POLLING PLACES FROM THE DAY THE LAST SHOT WAS FIRED IN THE CIVIL WAR.
