With the Supreme Court concluding one of the most historic and consequential terms in its history, it leaves its consequences and implications in the direction of our country.
A very important result could be the movement of Black and Hispanic voters to the right.
It is reasonable to assume the conservatives are happy with where this court brought us and the liberals are not happy.
More specifically, those who believe in the country’s original view, that it is about individual freedom and that the Constitution is designed to limit the federal government to few and well -defined areas, are happy.
And those who believe that the vision of the founders are no longer relevant today, or that the country has been flawed from the beginning and their job now is to fix those shortcomings, are not happy.
To continue to drill down, many may conclude that the recent court session will deepen the divide between those on the right and those on the left.
However, these court decisions are direct and positive to the facts and challenges of Black and Hispanic, and it is most reasonable to conclude that the political result is the shift of Black and Hispanic voters to the right.
Blacks and Hispanics will surely hear differently from propagandists on the left.
Most of the headlines focused on Dobbs ’decision, which reversed Roe v. Wade.
But there are other critically important decisions with far -reaching implications.
In the case of Carson v. Makin, the court found that the state of Maine violated the First Amendment protection of “free exercise” of religion where state funds used to pay tuition for public and private schools were not available for in religious schools.
In Kennedy v. Bremerton, a court ruled the Bremerton School District violated the First Amendment’s free use of religion and free speech protections when Bremerton High School fired its football coach for praying at the 50-yard line at the end of games. football.
In the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association v. Bruen, the court found a New York State law requiring “proper cause,” that is, a special reason for carrying a firearm, in violation of the Second Amendment guarantee of the right to hold a firearm.
As Justice Brett Kavanaugh asked at the case hearing, “Why isn’t it enough to say I live in a violent area and I want to defend myself.”
For Black Americans, who live in some of the most dangerous communities in the country, the court decision guaranteeing them the right to defend themselves is important and good news.
For Black and Hispanic Americans, whose children are disproportionately trapped in failing public schools, the clarification of protections and court guarantees that strengthens parents ’ability to choose where to send children to school is very good news.
Court decisions that uphold First Amendment religious freedom protections and do not abuse the misconception that the U.S. Constitution is indifferent to the sanctity of life and grants abortion rights will mobilize Blacks and Hispanics to political rights.
Black and Hispanic voters are beginning to see what the cultural turmoil of the left has done to their families and communities.
The recent election of Mayra Flores as a Republican and the first member of Congress to be born in Mexico is an example. He got 51% of the vote in a district in Texas that has not yet elected a Republican. He ran as a candidate raised with “strong conservative values focused on faith, family and hard work.”
Her campaign poster is labeled “God, Family, Country” in both English and Spanish.
I truly believe that the recent session of the Supreme Court will go well with America’s Black and Hispanic communities and provides good reason to expect extreme implications for change in the country’s political landscape.
