In response to North Carolina suing the DOJ, Loretta Lynch held a press conference yesterday to announce that the DOJ would be suing the state of North Carolina. She pulled very, very few punches:
To quote a part of her speech:
“This is not the first time that we have seen discriminatory responses to historic moments of progress for our nation. We saw it in the Jim Crow laws that followed the Emancipation Proclamation. We saw it in fierce and widespread resistance to Brown v. Board of Education. And we saw it in the proliferation of state bans on same-sex unions intended to stifle any hope that gay and lesbian Americans might one day be afforded the right to marry.”
Damn. Git it, girl.
