Beginning June 3, Supreme Court Will Decide Fate of Civil Rights, Affirmative Action, Voting rights, and Same-sex marriage

Will these five Justices on the left rule for equal protection,
with justice for all against the four of the right?
Update: No landmark decisions on major civil rights cases today; wait until next Monday, June 10. All decisions should be in by June 31.

Update: Waiting ... see SCOTUSblog.com.

Americans with access to an Internet ought to check the site: SCOTUS blog.com at 8:00 A.M., Monday, June 3.

There, we can see what damage the Republicans on the Court might inflict upon minorities at disfavor with the Republican and Tea Parties.

Racism and bigotry v. Civil Rights

The next several weeks (possible beginning this Monday) will see whether civil rights for minorities are protected in four major political cases.

SCOTUSblog.com (sponsored by Bloomberg Law) notes expected U.S. Supreme Court rulings include the following civil rights cases on voting rights, marriage equity and affirmative action.

The Court will likely issue landmark rulings (but perhaps go narrow) as the culmination of (and in some cases the civil rights community's legal response to) to the Republican Party's work to disenfranchise gays from getting married; halt efforts that help minorities get a college education; and stop minorities from voting—all long-term GOP policy objectives.

Sometimes justices vote and join an opinion with which she disagrees out a political motive.

The Court is expected to recess at the end of June or early July.
