According to a Census report in 2008 (the latest I could find), http://www.census.gov/prod/2010pubs/p20-56… on page 10, it reports that blacks in the south have a higher voting rate than the national average (and higher percentage than southern white voters).
The extreme measure of pre-approval of ANY changes to southern voting laws or procedures by the courts is no longer necessary. If and when any racism does becomes institutionalized by stupid bigots in state and local legislatures, it will be exposed by folks like you and me then hammered down by the courts just as it is in the rest of the nation.
