3.20.13 … Obama’s 102-Year-Old Voter, ‘Shocked’ By Scalia’s ‘Racial Entitlement’ Remar … I’m shocked, too …

 Desiline Victor, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, racial entitlement:  Ms.  Victor, I am shocked, too.

WASHINGTON — Desiline Victor, the 102-year-old voter who received a standing ovation at President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address earlier this year, sent a letter on March 12 to Justice Antonin Scalia criticizing his remarks about the Voting Rights Act being a “racial entitlement.”

Victor said she was “shocked” when she heard what Scalia said about the Voting Rights Act during the Supreme Court’s oral arguments on a key provision of the law last month.

“I thought you must not know what’s happening in this country,” Victor wrote. “After learning more this year from the civil rights group, Advancement Project, I know that just as there were for me, there are barriers to voting for many people – especially people who are black or brown.”
