All this means is that when parties discriminate against minorities, they'll say they're being partisan and not racist so they can get away with it.
Roberts and the conservative majority won't explicitly *approve* of that racial discrimination, of course. They'll just say it's out of their hands.
This is a fundamentally anti-democratic decision, but it reflects the fact that the conservative ideological project in the united states can only proceed by entrenching countermajoritarian procedural advantages rather than popular support from the people themselves.
Get ready for way more elections where one party wins most of the votes in a state and gets a small percentage of the seats.
