Shelby County: Twitter reactions
In case you missed it, Shelby County Alabama claims racism doesn't exist anymore and the Supreme Court agreed. #SCOTUS

The Shelby County ruling by #SCOTUS strikes me as a reasonable one. Yes, preclearance may be necessary, but has to be matched with our time.

"the 15th amendment is not designed to punish for the past; it's purpose is to ensure a better future." Shelby County

HALLELUJAH THE SOUTH HAS FINALLY BEEN LIBERATED!!! SCOTUS SIDES WITH SHELBY COUNTY AGAINST HOLDER SECTION 5 IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL!

So, the upshot here is “since there’s now parity in Shelby County, it’s OK if we do whatever we want in voting regulations.” Suuuuuure.

Shelby County is bad, but not quite as bad as it could have been, and effect probably overstated, especially if Congress passes new formula

Quite simply shocked at the Shelby County v. Holder decision. May have a new "worst SCOTUS ruling" candidate.

Very happy with Supreme Court's decision re: Shelby County (Voting Rights Act case)

#ShelbyCounty is rather limited, it seems. No ruling on Sec 2 or Sec 5 – just throws out pre-clearance formula. Will be tough for Congress

And now, we get a big Congressional fight about voting rights! Hooray! (not) #ShelbyCounty

SCOTUS' ruling today in Shelby County v. Holder makes it possible for the children in North Forest ISD to get a better education.
