I admire The New Yorker and aspire to be published in it one day, but this cover is really indicative of its overbearing whiteness.
The same Supreme Court that overturned DOMA also invalidated Section 4 of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, which includes the map that determines which states (Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, and Texas, in addition to 12 cities and 57 counties in other states) must receive federal permission before changing their voting laws. These places have a history of discrimination at the polls, and indeed Texas has already announced that it plans to institute a previously-blocked voter identification law. Clarence Thomas, the only black justice on the Supreme Court and also a supreme boil on the overall body of American blackness, is included on the majority side of the 5-4 ruling.
The image of two gay… things (sidenote: this would have been a lot more powerful if it depicted people instead of Muppets) snuggled up in apparent content of the Supreme Court is pretty fucked up considering the VRA ruling was announced just one day prior to that of DOMA.  Fucked up, but not surprising.
Stay woke dog.
