    is not practiced in this country, except in cases where we apply things like the paper bag test. But that's kept in the family, among black folks and is not talked about in mixed company.

    I digress. Scalia should crawl back into his cave and get lessons in humanity.

      The impression I get of the phrase “racial entitlement” is that Scalia thinks of the VRA in the same way many conservatives think of Affirmative Action. In other words, entitlement means preference which in their minds is unfair to white people.

      Also, and excuse me if this sounds too hypersensitively liberal, but when I hear the phrase racial entitlement why do I hear the echo of the word welfare? Scalia is Scalia, but I think the reason this particular episode has risen above his typical obnoxiousness is that there is a gratuitous racial insult couched in what he is saying.

        insult, not even couched.  It also seems to me to be an insult to democracy as he defines voting a right, as an entitlement. I guess all are rights as citizens are at this point entitlements or privileges that are granted or taken away by this arrogant Supreme infallible judge who interprets the constitution like a bible thumping Fundy.
