National Review;11/27/1981, Vol. 33 Issue 23, p1394
The article points out the flaws of the 1965 Voting Right Act passed by the U.S. Congress and is being reauthorized through the Voting Rights Act Extension of 1981. It contends that the law supports affirmative action programs and is creating a right to win for African Americans. It calls on President Ronald Reagan to insist that his version of the Voting Rights Act be adopted by the Congress as it is the more reasonable law.
