I haven’t read the ruling either but I don’t understand how the 9th circus can equate racial discrimination to voter rights. I believe minorities have larger per capita percentages incarcerated in every state.
The entire argument is based on the “disproportionate” number of minorities in prison. If you asked these people for evidence of actual discrimination, they would give you statistics.
One gets the idea that in a liberal’s ideal world, whites and Asians would just be plucked off the street at random for incarceration so that the inmate population would “reflect society.”
