Since the 1954 Brown vs. Board of Education Supreme Court decision, Holder said laws that are overtly discriminatory no longer survive the “strict scrutiny” legal standard.
He said the new battleground against discrimination should focus on policies and laws that appear race-neutral but in practice impede equal opportunity.
“This is the work that truly matters – because policies that disenfranchise specific groups are more pernicious than hateful rants,” Holder told the graduates at Morgan State, a historically black college.
I agree wholeheartedly, Mr. Attorney General. So what are we going to do about this “policy that disenfranchises a specific group”?
