Letter: How about specifics?

To the Editor:

Says Jean Pierce in her recent letter to the editor (Kane County Chronicle, Sept. 4, 2013), “Before the ink was even dry on the decision, several states rushed to implement racially discriminatory anti-voter laws, including several states where the League of Women Voters had previously succeeded in blocking voter restrictions in the courts and state legislatures.” This is in response to the Supreme Court decision regarding the Voting Rights Act (Shelby County, Alabama v. Holder).

Jean, how about some specifics? Other than giving your opinion that “racially discriminatory anti-voter laws” were implemented, you say absolutely nothing about what these laws actually say or what they do. How is a thinking voter supposed to come to a rational conclusion about what you are saying when you give no details whatsoever?  

Explain yourself. Give specifics. Then, using logic and critical thinking, show how these laws truly are racist, instead of just saying so and expecting everyone reading your opinion to blindly accept what you say without question.
