Hank Johnson’s Days Numbered ? SCOTUS Decision Eliminates Majority Argument in Race-Based District Boundaries…

The Congressional Black Caucus and the Decepticon Republican Establishment will collectively cry foul. A Supreme Court decision today essentially eliminates the twisted racial logic used to construct race-based (black) congressional districts.

As Christian Adams writes – “The Supreme Court has dealt a heavy blow to efforts — often by the Republican Party — to draw legislative districts that pack black voters into majority black legislative districts in order to elect black representatives”. (read more)

…“Here, however, the District Court and the legislature both asked the wrong question with respect to narrow tailoring. They asked how to maintain the present minority percentages in majority-minority districts, instead of asking the extent to which they must preserve existing minority percentages in order to maintain the minority’s present ability to elect the candidate of its choice. Because asking the wrong question may well have led to the wrong answer, the Court cannot accept the District Court’s conclusion.”

      The ruling means that state legislatures do not need to maintain percentages of blacks and/or minorities within congressional districts when district boundaries are drawn/redrawn due to population growth or shrinkage.

      Congressional districts are often ridiculously drawn in order to maintain a specific percentage of minorities in the geographic region. The ruling eliminates that consideration.

      Both Dems and Republicans like to keep fences around the minority (usually black) populations.

        This will present challenges for modern vote plantation management. May be the signal event to fuel a very sporty riot and mayhem season in America, like ’67 or so perhaps.
        Plan accordingly.

      This has been another of those issues, used by BOTH parties.

      Using the National Voting Rights Act of 1964 (in defining what the definition of “is -is”) the radical blacks have been saying, when a state legislature draws lines of redistricting (via census numbers every 10 years) they must draw those lines to include high numbers of black residents so that the voters of those new districts will definitely elect black representatives.

      The court said that is wrong. That is not what the law means.(court says it means there is no guarantee, only opportunity to elect black representatives)

      Republicans apparently have been pushing for the same as the radical black groups for what according to Christian Adams says is “bleaching” the other districts (?) (group all blacks together (?) therefore leaves other districts as white (?)

      Am I wrong here? (Talk about Gerry-mandering!)

        I am opposed on principle to gerrymandering, regardless of whom the practice helps, or whom the practice helps or hurts when dispensed with.

        Congressional district lines should be drawn as linearly and contiguously as possible, not manipulated to sway election results.

          But donut holes have limited the effect of voter fraud to inner cities for local elections. If some inner city gets millions of fake votes they cant override the votes of people in suburbs for local elections. This means that Voter ID is more necessary now than before.

        Blacks don’t like it that they’re much smaller percentage of the population than they would like to be. When you’re 13% of the population trying to dictate to a 100% of it, things could get dicey and all the screaming and teeth-gnashing about “racists” and “white privilege” still don’t work, it’s tantrum time.

          When they have a district created so that it’s mostly minority so that they will elect a minority, it seems to lead to electing, quite frankly, some really unintelligent people. Maybe if they have to compete in a diverse district, they’ll have to start fielding some intelligent candidates if they want to win. That would be a win-win for everyone.

          Since Roe vs Wade, black abortions have been almost 17 million babies killed…would have increased the black population of the us by 36% over where it is today without abortions.

            Also, whites and hispanics do have abortions.

    The constitution protects the right to equal protection under the law. Why do the minority have a privileged right to elect the representative of their choice?

    We are a constitutional republic, with a democratic representative election process – not a parliamentary system.

      What’s s’posed to be and what is can be very different things, especially in the political arena. In some ways, these rulings and changes that should have occurred long ago are bittersweet now. Guess who’s (cough-whitey-cough) a minority in my city? Guess who (cough-whitey-cough) would have virtually no chance of representation, if district lines weren’t at least somewhat gerrymandered to ensure “historic” minority representation and “bleaching” of neighboring districts? I was so looking forward to rubbing all those special benefits for minorities laws in other peoples’ faces for a change and suddenly, now, logic and fealty to equal application of the law (which I’ve also argued for until blue in the face) is messing it all up. I’m being facetious to some degree, of course, but not entirely.

    This does not address the minority-majority problem. The majority-minority problem can only be solved if the minority remains the minority forever. What if the minority becomes the majority? Or the majority becomes the minority? Then what?

      Voter fraud. This decision means that voter fraud can affect local elections of other than just non-Asian minorities. Before if some inner city had a few million extra votes it didn’t matter for local elections because a democrat would win anyway, now voter fraud can reach out from the barrios and inner cities that don’t have Voter ID>
