    Trust me, Mister, no one is going to keep me out of the polling house. Ok? I'm not even worried about that. Why are you? Afraid black folks might see that there really isn't a buncha white, Republican booger bears out there, trying to put them back in chains afterall? It might mean that the ghettos get busted up by black flight out into the world, after they figure out that things aren't as bad as the Libbos have been saying. That would be a political disaster for the Libbos.

    You sorta got it, but you could have simply said that blacks vote for the Democratic Party, whether the candidate is black or white. Let's see if Fenton sees the pattern. (Please don't give him a heads up, O.K.?)

    You're in a lot of pain, aren't you? I hope you're young because this kind of stress and hate is not good for your heart. Relax. The election is over and Obama won. Nothing you can do about that. But you guys are doing really well despite the fact that you're going against the wishes of the majority of people in the country. You got Citizens United and now gutted the Voting Rights Act (so now you can suppress the minority vote more easily), your war against women continues (especially at the state level where you're going after women with a vengeance) ... there's a lot for you to be happy about, at least in the short run (yes, I'm afraid to tell you that in the long run all you're doing is giving yourselves more rope to hang yourselves with) ... so chill my friend ...

    I'll give you the important excerpts.

    In the case of the new electoral map, a panel of federal judges found that “substantial surgery” was done to predominantly black districts, cutting off representatives’ offices from their strongest fundraising bases. Meanwhile, white Congress members’ districts were either preserved or “redrawn to include particular country clubs and, in one case, the school belonging to the incumbent’s grandchildren.” The new map was also drawn in secret by white Republican representatives, without notifying their black and Latino peers
    This shows that the electoral map was redrawn as to screw over majority black districts (cutting off the strongest fundraising bases of the reps of those district), while going and either leaving the districts of white reps alone or expanding them and they also did this in secret as well.

    The strict photo ID requirement blocked by the DOJ and a federal court would require Texans to show one of a very narrow list of acceptable photo IDs. Expired gun licenses from other states are considered valid, but Social Security cards and student IDs are not. If voters do not have an ID — as many minorities, seniors, and poor people do not — they must travel at their own expense, produce their birth certificate, and in many cases pay a fee to get an ID.
    This change in voter ID laws will make it so that it is more difficult for groups who would vote Democrat as the list of IDs are extremely small and many of those voters who don't have IDs (and many of whom vote for Democrats) must "travel at their own expense, produce their birth certificate, and in many cases pay a fee to get an ID." The fact that many of these people, such as the poor, may not have the money to get travel and pay the fee for the ID will make it harder for them to vote.

    This is also going to happen in North Carolina (NC voter ID bill moving ahead with Supreme Court ruling :: WRAL.com) and Mississippi (Voting Rights Act ruling clears path for Mississippi voter ID use in 2014 (updated) | gulflive.com).

    No, it shows that districts were redrawn to screw over blacks politicians. It's the other side of the coin with Section 5, which was used to screw over white politicians.

    That's politics, not racism. Voters cannot be effected negatively by redistricting.

    Actually, voters can be negatively affected by redistricting.

    MIRA Blog Archive The truth about Voter ID and Redistricting

    Redistricting, while necessary and constitutionally required, is often used to punish those who do not walk lock-step with the majority party in the legislature. By re-drawing the districts along racial lines or illegally packing voters of color into fewer districts, eliminating districts that elect moderates or progressives, current lawmakers can create districts that reduce the influence of these voters.
    FairVote.org | Redistricting

    It's a blood sport that both parties have exploited, thereby minimizing the role of voters in the political process. By gerrymandering the districts, legislators and their political cronies have used redistricting to choose their voters, before voters have had the opportunity to choose them.


    Ward 5 redistricting plan hurts voters and neighborhoods - Greater Greater Washington

    On October 6th, the Ward 5 Redistricting Task Force approved an Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC) redistricting plan (despite having limited information about the details) that splits apart communities and distorts voter power.
    It distorts voter power. The executive committee's plan dilutes voting strength by increasing the difference from the smallest to the largest Ward 5 SMD to about 850 people.

    One of the more egregious changes was in Bloomingdale. 2 districts with nearly equal populations became 3 with populations of 2,061, 2,039, and 1,399. A change was necessary because the population grew, but while the first two districts are roughly proportional, the third is significantly smaller and about 33% short of the 2,000 resident target.

    As indefensible as these numbers are, what is even more stunning is that the latest Thomas plan expands those disparities further. Its SMD populations range from approximately 900 to nearly 2,800. Because this plan can neither be reconciled with the law nor justified by any circumstances on the ground, the Office of Planning will have to reject it as not worthy of serious consideration.

    IOW, since all Republicans are racists, the only way for minorities to get a fair shake and stay out them chains, is for Libbos to get elected? Sounds like too much self importance, to me.

    In one of the links I quoted, it said that both parties engaged in gerrymandering.

    Can't believe that opposition to the Libbos is about something other than racism...can you?
