Videos of the Week (Part 3)
Back in 2009, attorney for the NAACP Legal Defense fund Debo Adegbile answers questions about the case, Northwest Austin Municipality Utility District No.1 v. Holder. Although the Voting Rights Act of 1965 banned racial discrimination in regards to voting, there are still loopholes in the system according to Adegbile. Adegbile claims that although this act did produce progress, it does not solve this issue completely. In this video, he talks about how racial discrimination in voting is still prominent today.
