Silence of Modern Black Republicans – Aiding and Abetting Voter Suppression
By Peter Grear - There is a deafening silence in the ranks of modern black Republicans who stand mute as their party of choice relentlessly attacks the civil right that is most responsible for the rights and privileges of democracy, the right to vote. There is a group of them that gather with the President, Sean Hannity and other Republican right wingers to denounce so-called liberal democrats as representing everything that is bad for blacks in America and accusing them of race exploitation. I watch them in amazement as they claimed to defend the constitution and said that Obama ignored it. They are very unbalanced in their zeal to demean black Democrats as they ignore the constitutional guarantee of “one man and one vote” and the massive voter suppression efforts of their Republican party.

Update: North Carolina State Conference of NAACP Branches v. Lewis

Case Background

A number of civil rights organizations in North Carolina and Wake County residents filed a challenge to four state house districts in Wake County drawn in the 2017 remedial redistricting plan as a result of North Carolina v. Covington, arguing that the newly drawn districts violate the state constitution’s prohibition against mid-decade redistricting. The plaintiffs claim that lawmakers went beyond what the federal court directed and altered districts that did not need to be redrawn to remedy the racial gerrymanders.


The plaintiffs filed a preliminary injunction to enjoin the defendants from conducting election in the four state house districts and have asked that the districts are returned to their 2011 boundaries for the 2018 elections. 


A hearing on the motion for preliminary injunction is scheduled for April 6.

and not declined.
