The United States Supreme Court has spoken. The countrys highest court has essentially ruled that racism is a thing of the past in America. Gone are the times when black people were hunted down and lynched, times when Congress had to provide African-Americans with legislative protection, like the Voting Rights Act of 1965, the greatest achievement of the US civil rights movement.
Our nation has made great strides, Chief Justice John Roberts, born in Buffalo, New York, wrote in the majority decision.

Needs Barf Alert.
I can’t think of a better example of chutzpah than a German publication lecturing America on racism.
We really need to be lectured by the leading German Newspaper Der Spiegel. Give me a break.
German Leftists can give us advice right after they elect the first Black as their prime minister.
When I was growing up we had slang for every ethnic group...and we all got along just fine..we new who are friends were....today everybody keeps there mouth shut
Indeed it’s like we have our own SS creeping around.
I read the “Spiegel” regularly. All I can say is that Pitzke is an America hater and all of his columns reflect that. He constantly feeds the German psyche who eat his Anti- American writings up
He resides in the US and is a regular contributor.
I, for one, am glad to see this unjust law gone,
