These are strange multi-racial days. So strange in fact that white people now feel the cold boot of voter disenfranchisement on their necks. Especially in the South. But this is with a catch. A group of white voters is suing Dallas County, Texas under the Voting Rights Act for discriminating against white people in redistricting county offices. But here's the thing: the county board is majority white and white's make up only 32 percent of the population. )Hispanics are 39% and blacks are 23%.) So what's the problem? Not enough people on the board are Republicans. Only one in fact. The county is abridging white peoples' right to elect Republicans. As the plaintiffs say "Like something out of the bad old days, a southern electoral body plays naked racial politics, intentionally using its power to minimize a dissenting race’s political sway."
Here's the story.
