SCOTUS to Rule on 'Textbook Example' of Racist Gerrymandering


SCOTUS to Rule on 'Textbook Example' of Racist Gerrymandering

Lauren McCauley, staff writer

The U.S. Supreme Court announced Monday that it will soon weigh in on whether North Carolina's redistricting relied too heavily on race, deliberately clustering large populations of black voters into two districts in an attempt to diminish their influence and sway election results.

The Hill reports:


NC has been a highly contested state when it comes to recent presidential and senate elections, within 1-4 percentage points in near all of these elections since 2008. Yet was noted, the repubs hold a 10 to 3 majority in number of seats in the House of Reps. If that is not fishy, I don't know what is. It certainly isn't because there happen to be a bunch of reasonable repubs (oxymoron) running, as can be seen by the wacky and nasty state assembly.
