    I assume you agree that no coercion was involved with the Brown v. Board of Education decision since it was unanimous. But it gave rise to the South’s resistance to it and the 1960s Civil Rights Acts, culminating in the Southern Strategy of Richard Nixon, all efforts at coercion. Should this be included in your work about the generational cycle in constitutional law? There doesn’t seem to be much direct challenge to Brown v. Board of Education any longer.

    Could be. I don’t know enough about about the 1960s to assess that, though at some point I’ll be looking into that more closely.

    Arguably, the way the Voting Rights Act works constitutes an unusual level of supervision (though coercion may be too strong a word).
