    Ok, I am a little confused, we can send our men and women into another country to help them fight for their right to vote through Military actions….but in our own country the minorities have to go before the supreme court? Maybe the military should’ve stayed home to fight for its own citizans right to vote. J. Nathaniel, Memphis, TN
