History Repeating Itself: Alabama Refuses to Cooperate With Justice Department in Civil Rights Probe

From the Washington Post:




The Obama administration's legal campaign against restrictive state immigration laws has led to a bitter standoff in Alabama, where Justice Department attorneys are investigating possible civil rights violations.


The federal government already has sued Alabama over its new law, one of three such lawsuits against states that have cracked down on illegal immigration. Now, the Justice Department has opened a civil rights investigation to monitor potential discrimination as parts of the Alabama law take effect.



It took Alabama decades to repair its image after Selma and Birmingham and it is the home to a large number of international manufacturers who have found the state business friendly. It has taken only a few weeks to completely undo that work. Sadly, the vast majority of Alabamans think their new law is just great. Which makes one wonder whether it was all just public relations and things never really changed in that state.

    Once a Racist, always a Racist. End of Story! However, dont know whether the DOJ will be able to make the same claims against Utah.
