So stop the racial charges, William Barber. Go home and start winning souls for Heaven instead of gold for your pocket.
But don't expect him to do so or any of the others. Let me ask: What's more racially drawn than that line down 85 for Mel Watts or what use to be Mel Watt's predominately black district? Yea, the Republicans left it alone.
Just a bunch of whiners attempting to keep the poor poorer and fatten their own wallet.
If they promoted individualism, liberty, capitalism and justice, can you imagine how much more prosperous NC citizens would be? Oh I forgot...prosperity is only for the elitists! Yes, NC has its share of them too.
Court upholds redrawn NC voting maps
RALEIGH, N.C. — A three-judge panel on Monday upheld legislative and congressional districts drawn by the Republican-dominated General Assembly in 2011, ruling unanimously that the maps were constitutional.
But the three Superior Court judges found that those challenging the maps had not showed "a violation of any cognizable equal protection rights of any North Carolina citizens, or groups thereof, will result."
The plaintiffs in the case, including a former state lawmaker and the state NAACP, have 30 days to decide whether to appeal the decision to the state Supreme Court.
"With the unanimous decision, I can't imagine they have any grounds at all to appeal," said Sen. Bob Rucho, R-Mecklenburg, one of the lead mapmakers for the legislature. "When we drew fair and legal district maps, we followed the letter of the law. That's been the intent since Day One."
The opinion addresses two different lawsuits that were combined into one case. One suit was brought by the NAACP and other groups. The other case involved 45 plaintiffs, lead by former state Sen. Margaret Dickson of Fayetteville, a contingent that served as a proxy for the state Democratic Party.
"I was hoping on a better outcome," said Sen. Martin Nesbitt, D-Buncombe, the minority leader in the state Senate. He said Monday morning that he had not read the decision, but based on the how the case has proceeded, he anticipated a more favorable ruling.
That said, the three-judge panel's ruling does not end the case, and Nesbitt speculated, "it is probably going to go all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court."
