  •  It's not hyperbole (4+ / 0-)

    To call this the return of Jim Crow. They literally overturned a law to outlaw Jim Crow laws.

      lynchings go unprosecuted (like the Trayvon Martin case getting shut down), and I can't marry a Black person, let me know.  Until then, you're being incredibly hyperbolic.

      •  It's more hyperbolic (0+ / 0-)

        to essentially dismiss the horrors of racism just because they've evolved into more subtle forms of intolerance.

        I'd think my black neighbor here in New Orleans would really disagree with the implication above. Sure our things as bad as they were under Jim Crow? No, duh. That said, what SCOTUS did Tuesday was undermine the rights of millions, it was an assault on the civil rights of those living under preclearance.

        and lynchings are more likely to take the form of legal executions.
