It seems that the Supreme Courtroom isn’t ending its conservative tear on the human rights of marginalized individuals by overturning Roe v. Wade—it is usually setting its sights on upholding racist congressional map redistricting clearly meant to dilute Black voting energy. As a result of what’s just a little systemic racism if it means Republicans can nonetheless win elections, amirite?

Based on The Hill, the Supreme Courtroom voted 6-3 on Tuesday to reinstate a Louisiana voting map drawn by the state’s GOP that was blocked by a federal decide who discovered it to be discriminatory towards Black voters.

U.S. District Choose Shelly Dick dominated earlier this month that Louisiana’s MAGA map redistricting plan disenfranchised Black voters and ordered the Republican-led legislature to attract a brand new map that created a second majority-Black congressional district within the state. The Hill famous that “underneath the unique plan, massive numbers of Black voters have been consolidated right into a single majority-Black congressional district, with remaining Black voters dispersed all through the state’s 5 different districts.”

And it seems the Supreme Courtroom gained’t be stopping at reinstating Louisiana’s racist-a** map. From The Hill:

The transfer got here in a short unsigned order issued with out remark underneath the courtroom’s so-called “shadow docket.”

Moreover, the justices added the case to their docket for his or her subsequent courtroom time period, which begins this fall. They’re slated to listen to arguments in October over an identical Voting Rights Act problem to Alabama’s new voting maps.

So, after Louisiana and Alabama, what state is subsequent?

In April, we reported that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis proposed a re-drawn map breaking apart a majority-Black voting district in north Florida in favor of what he blatantly referred to as a “race-neutral” map. Since DeSantis by no means proposed such a factor for any majority-white voting districts in his state, it’s clear what he sought to do was racist AF. That’s why it was dominated unconstitutional by a circuit courtroom decide who was appointed by DeSantis himself. However who is aware of? Possibly this would be the subsequent “shadow docket” case taken on by a Supreme Courtroom run by right-wingers who seem to have forsaken the whole idea of judicial neutrality and solely appear to care in regards to the human rights of “individuals” who haven’t been born but.

Typically I actually simply hate it right here.
