With the Supreme Court concluding one of the most historic and consequential terms in its history, it leaves in its wake consequences and implications for the direction of our country.

One very important result may well be a movement of Black and Hispanic voters to the right.

It is reasonable to conclude that conservatives are happy with where this court has taken us and liberals are not happy.
More specifically, those who believe in the original vision of the country, that it is about individual liberty and that the Constitution is designed to limit the federal government to few and well-defined areas, are happy.

And those who believe that the vision of the founders is no longer relevant today, or that the country was flawed from the beginning and their job today is to fix those flaws, are not happy.

To continue to drill down, many may conclude that this recent court session will deepen the divide between those already on the right and those on the left.

However, decisions of this court bear directly and positively on Black and Hispanic realities and challenges, and it is most reasonable to conclude the political result will be migration of Black and Hispanic voters to the right.

For sure Blacks and Hispanics will hear otherwise from propogandists on the left.

Most of the headlines have been focused on the Dobbs decision, which overturned Roe v. Wade.

But there were other critically important decisions with far-reaching implications.

In the case of Carson v. Makin, the court found that the state of Maine was in violation of First Amendment protection of “free exercise” of religion where state funds used to pay tuition for public and private schools could not be used for religious schools.

In Kennedy v. Bremerton, the court ruled that Bremerton School District violated free exercise of religion and free speech protections of the First Amendment when Bremerton High School fired its football coach for praying at the 50-yard line at the conclusion of football games.

In New York State Rifle and Pistol Association v. Bruen, the court found a New York State law requiring “proper cause,” that is, a special reason to carry a handgun, in violation of the Second Amendment guarantee of the right to bear arms.

As Justice Brett Kavanaugh asked in the hearing of the case, “Why isn’t it good enough to say I live in a violent area and I want to defend myself.”

For Black Americans, who live in some of the most dangerous communities in the nation, the court’s decision guaranteeing them the right to defend themselves is important and good news.

For Black and Hispanic Americans, whose children are disproportionately trapped in failing public schools, the court’s clarifying protections and guarantees that strengthen the ability for parents to choose where to send the children to school is very good news.

The court’s decisions firming up religious freedom protections of the First Amendment and disabusing the faulty notion that the U.S. Constitution is indifferent to sanctity of life and provides for abortion rights will move Blacks and Hispanics to the political right.

Black and Hispanic voters are beginning to see what the cultural chaos of the left has done to their families and communities.

The recent election of Mayra Flores as a Republican and the first Mexican-born member of Congress is case in point. She garnered 51% of the vote in a district in Texas that has never before elected a Republican. She ran as a candidate raised with “strong conservative values that focused on faith, family and hard work.”

Her campaign poster branded “God, Family, Country” in both English and Spanish.

I truly believe the recent Supreme Court session will sit well in America’s Black and Hispanic communities and gives good reason to expect strong implications for change in the nation’s political landscape.

joe biden and his China first policy is failing across both parties. Not wanted in 2024 and will be cause for his impeachment after the midterms, just hope the biden monies they collected for” what ever they promised to do for it” is returned to those UnAmerican adversaries where it should have stayed all along, we do not need the joe and hunter’s America last policy in our Country.

i normally do not pay attention to this crap, but i am very glad i did this time. this is the best news i have read in such a long time, besides the abortion decision. My grandfather told me long ago “the wheels of justice move slowly, but they do move”. These recent decisions prove his point. Amen to bringing sanity back to our society. Hopefully this will turn into a tidal wave that will lift our country to the RIGHT direction and will not by the grace of God allow the “nay” Sayers to destroy what our forefathers built with the help of our Lord. It is written that a country that walks away from the Lord is a country that will be destroyed or destroy its self. I am an old man and can now go home knowing that sane minds are now doing their part to save their, yours and my country. Prayer is very powerful and I truly believe that have been millions of us praying to our creator asking for forgiveness for our actions and asking for Him to help us to put us on the RIGHT path.
