SUPREME NOTION

Passing thought: If poor race relations are in the past, even at all the fundamental levels, then how do such fundamental issues end up in front of the United States Supreme Court.

Here's
another one on black-majority redistricting. I guess, registration is required. Why haven't you already?

Now my immediate, visceral reaction is: this type of redistricting makes no sense. But then, unlike a good Republican, I move past that to figure out why they may be needed. Until the underlying reasons for this are removed, they are legitimate, legal, constructions (which is all they are in the first place).

The NY Times frames the issue as the redistricting beneifiting Democrats. OK, but is that the Democrats fault? Why aren't blacks in these areas Republicans and, who's to say that wouldn't change.
