Glad We Live in a Post Racial America IX

The voters of Kinston, North Carolina, had decided they wanted nonpartisan ballots. No (R) or (D) after candidates' names. Thousands of communities in America do this. The Obama justice department, led by Eric Holder, have told that town they can't to that. The justification for this is that if there was no (D) after a name, African Americans couldn't win elections, apparently violating the voting rights act. Justice Department letter stated: “Removing the partisan cue in municipal elections will, in all likelihood, eliminate the single factor that allows black candidates to be elected to office.”

Acting Assistant Attorney General Loretta King: “In Kinston elections voters base their choice more on the race of a candidate rather than his or her political affiliation, and without either the appeal to party loyalty or the ability to vote a straight ticket, the limited remaining support from white voters for a black Democratic candidate will diminish even more.”

I wasn't quite sure whether to put this under 'glad we live...' or 'We Worship, You Don't Get to Decide' because most of the MSM has not, as of today, covered this story. Eric Holder has made it quite clear that he doesn't like white people much, and he's directed this violation of voters' rights while claiming he's supporting voters' rights. The government is intruding on the wishes of the people. They voted on something, and Holder and Obama don't like it, so they just rule and tell the people they can't do that? Got to ask, do all communities across Amerika now have to put party affiliation on their ballots? Are Black candidates only Democrats? Lots of issues of race, power, Federal government intervention overturning the will of the people. Lots of stories and issues here, not covered by the Washington Post, New York Times, USA Today, Los Angeles Times, ABC, CBS, NBC.
