Well it means that today all States marked for past racist practices are allowed to change their voting legislation and make it harder for non-white minorities to vote without needing preclearance from the Department of Justice, and any changes that in fact made it harder for those people to vote (like changing their polling places every week or forcing them to pass exams before being allowed to register) would stay in place until a court ruled otherwise, if any even does. That's how it used to be before Section 4 (last passed almost unanimously in 2003 I think- only three representatives voted against it if memory serves).
