The U.S. Justice Department is ever-vigilant against signs of "voter suppression" these days, most recently blocking - on the grounds that it would hurt blacks - a South Carolina law that would require voter identification. But the voting rights of some minorities, it appears, are more worth protecting than others.
Another chapter in the saga of race-con- scious law enforcement by the Obama administration is unfolding on the island of Guam. There, although all residents are subject to the Constitution and laws of the United States, local authorities are openly denying voting rights to U.S. citizens of white, black and Asian extraction, illegally refusing voter registration to any Guam resident unable to claim "native" or Chamorro racial classification.
