Let's just say what's really happening. Ole Ron is basically trying to void black voters in Florida.

Are you white folks okay withy that?

Republicans in the Legislature initially passed maps that were significantly less biased.

But DeSantis pledged to Veto both of them, insisting that only his proposals should be considered. Essentially, the original maps were "Too Fair".

Nothing stops black voters from going to the polls and voting.

Can you point to the words or phrasing that prevents blacks from voting?

Phrasing, who needs phrasing when you have district lines? Move some district lines around and you can make a six to four dem advantage turn into a six to four republican advantage. You guys are so dishonest it's shameful.

Pretty pessimistic about this. Florida could say that the 15th amendment is null and void and SCOTUS would go along with it.

I'm of the opinion that they crave the lies.

If you would like I could explain gerrymandering to you. It appears you don't know that it exists or that your new boy is doing it all by himself while bypassing the Florida reps.

Isn't a melting pot what we all want?

Or are you advocating for segregated neighborhoods and 'voting blocs'.

What about blacks living in the *nice* neighborhoods, don't they vote too?

Yup

And then many go to church.
Yeah, here comes the water
It comes to wash away the sins of you and I
This time you see
Like holy water
It only burns you faster than you'll ever dry
This time with me

Okay, dumb, but it's a badass song.
