MLK Anniversary Speaker Compares Supreme Court Justices to KKK

On the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech in Washington on Wednesday, the president of a prominent organization dedicated to increasing black civic participation compared conservative Supreme Court justices to KKK members and said Voter ID laws are being enacted to prevent another black president. 

Melanie Campbell, the president of the National Coalition on Black Civic Participation, said though black Americans are not threatened by biting dogs and KKK members in white hoods, the "dogs are still biting in other ways" and there is still "racism and inequality."

She said, "Today there are no white sheets, but there are judges in black robes in the U.S. Supreme Court striking down Section 4 of the Voting Rights Act, opening the floodgates in many states to pass more voter ID laws... with the goal of ensuring we never see a black man elected to the president, or woman, of the United states of America."
