SUPREME COURT TO RULE ON GERRYMEANDERING: Tell them you are against it AwareCitizens.org/gerrymandering.html
In the first days of July 2017, the U. S. Supreme Court threw out North Carolinas congressional district maps because the State legislature had packed two districts with an overwhelming majority of Afro-Americans to dilute minority influence in other districts. The gimmick contributed to guarantee control of one party over most districts. The Court ruled that: "A state may not use race as the predominant factor in drawing district lines, unless it has a compelling reason."
Now the Court must address the issue of political gerrymandering, the manipulation of boundaries with the purpose of guaranteeing control not based on race but on partisanship, a decision that has the potential of contributing more than any other to kill the gerrymander monster.
Judges tend to follow their ideological inclinations, yet they do not live in a vacuum. Prevailing social convictions and tendencies do influence their decisions. Having ruled against racial gerrymandering as near as the first week of July, there is a real opportunity that the despicable practice of gerrymandering be dealt with once and for all.
Let your voice be heard against gerrymandering, wherever it may come from. Sign the petition at AwareCitizens.org/gerrymandering.
