voting restriction laws and minority voters

Voting laws on the state level across the country are changing in most Republican run States. These laws have shown to disproportionately disenfranchise minority voters. All this is occurring during the first term of America’s first African American President. An Ohio judge has put a stop to the most agregious of these law in Ohio. PA on the other hand has yet to stop the voter restriction laws in their state. How can African Americans be fairly represented if these laws are not stopped?
