Guess you didn't read the news about the black poll watcher voting for obama 6 times in Ohio in the last election.

U guys have been busy in my absence. The vra and 13th amendment go hand in hand hotlanta...it is applied to southern states who are notorious for their "biases". General lightened Druid if this went away we would have all rackets like that of this forum making laws. Do you honestly think that racism...especially in the sou is dead? I'll answer that for you...it's not. Clearly with the statements made here on topic since I've been a member.
The question that I ask, is how did all of these Black politicians ever get elected down South, if the voting rights act was not present?

Gerrymandering at its worst provided black dominated voting districts. At one time one voting district in Georgia stretched all the way from Atlanta to Savannah to insure enough blacks to get a black congressman elected. After the war it was illegal for a white person to vote.

Yep, pasted that map last week on another forum!

What most dummies don't ever think about is, if a candidate runs on a mainstream ticket, and stands for, and loves this country, he'll get elected. Blacks however, still tend to vote straight democRATIC, and still don't see any progress, because no one is supporting the democRATS left wing extremist views anymore.When some can get past racial voting, things will change, and change for the better.
