One of my friends posted this on her FB:
From Melissa Harris-Perry's open letter to Scalia:
"Here is what you miss, Justice Scalia. A great thing occurred in the 1860s when Congress had to grapple with how to include the formerly enslaved within the circle of citizenship. That effort led Congress to articulate due process, equal protection, and a federally protected right to vote. Those pillars of citizenship apply to all.
It is the opposite of a special entitlement."
