    States effectively ceded a fair amount of authority with the passage of the reconstruction amendments.

    Amendment XV
    Section 1.
    The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude.

    Section 2.
    The Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.

    Section 5 of VRA is clearly within congressional perogative. The neo confederates of the Roberts court tend to ignore any constitutional amendment passed after 1789.
