  • Justice Dept halts racist policy...

    Whew… glad they dodged that problem. It seems that non-partisan ballots are racist… and they violate black voters rights.

    KINSTON, N.C. | Voters in this small city decided overwhelmingly last year to do away with the party affiliation of candidates in local elections, but the Obama administration recently overruled the electorate and decided that equal rights for black voters cannot be achieved without the Democratic Party.

    The Justice Department’s ruling, which affects races for City Council and mayor, went so far as to say partisan elections are needed so that black voters can elect their “candidates of choice” - identified by the department as those who are Democrats and almost exclusively black.

    The department ruled that white voters in Kinston will vote for blacks only if they are Democrats and that therefore the city cannot get rid of party affiliations for local elections because that would violate black voters’ right to elect the candidates they want.

    Several federal and local politicians would like the city to challenge the decision in court. They say voter apathy is the largest barrier to black voters’ election of candidates they prefer and that the Justice Department has gone too far in trying to influence election results here.

    Stephen LaRoque, a former Republican state lawmaker who led the drive to end partisan local elections, called the Justice Department’s decision “racial as well as partisan.”

    “On top of that, you have an unelected bureaucrat in Washington, D.C., overturning a valid election,” he said. “That is un-American.”

    Is the justice Dept saying only Democrats can be good for black people?

    Is the Justice Dept saying the only way black voters cast their ballot is by choosing the Democrat ticket?

    That black people spend no time identifying a candidate based on that candidate's platform?

    That black voters are ill-informed of what a candidate stands for?

    I don't know... it sounds racist to me.
