Voting Rights To Expire in 07'

According to an e-mail chain letter the voting rights of blacks will expire in the year 2007. The letter has been circulated and claims that in 2007 blacks are going to lose all that their ancestors worked for and they will once again suffer a denial of voting rights.

I thought this was kind of funny as I find it impossible to believe that this could ever happen. Even if there were any kind of truth to the claim I would imagine that congress would work around the clock to enact legislation that prevented this from happening.

Well, the e-mail turned out to be a hoax although there is some truth to the rumor. The Voting Rights Act is due to expire, but as I though congress would not allow this to happen. Statements have been issued to assure that voting rights infact are permanent.

Here is the link to the story. . .
