Back in the United States, the Supreme Court has restored Alabama’s congressional voting map, reversing a federal court ruling that found Alabama Republicans unlawfully gerrymandered the districts to deny representation to Black voters. The maps give Alabama just one congressional district out of seven that’s favorable to a Black candidate. Monday’s 5-4 ruling by the Supreme Court will allow Alabama to keep the gerrymandered maps through November’s midterm elections while justices consider a case that could further undermine what’s left of the Voting Rights Act of 1965.
