Greg Palast: Ku Klux Kourt Kills King's Dream Law, Replaces Voting Rights Act With Katherine Harris
They might as well have burned a cross on Dr. King's grave. The Jim Crow majority on the Supreme Court just took away the vote of millions of Hispanic and African-American voters by wiping away Section 4 of the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

I'm taking the chance of posting this -- it was within the article but it's not really part of the article. Please just let me know if I should take it out because the PTB think it goes over the 4 paragraphs limit rather than locking the post or something. This is Greg's direct plea:
I'm so angry, so distraught by this, that I've asked my foundation to release my film, Election Files, for free. This is a no-BS, no charge download of my series of investigative reports for BBC Television and RollingStone.com. Click here.
