naivety,

sounds mores like an effort to for them to say " we aren't targeting black poeple, only 5% of the people in this district identify soley as black.."
"this isn't a black neighborhood we're disenfranchising, it's home to a diverse array of races."
You see it. This is a way to officially reduce the number of Black people and further limit political power.

Whenever you see "Republicans want the Supreme Court to..." you know it's bout to be some bullshyt
It's the only way they can govern. The fact that they want to use an unelected body to put their policies into place should tell you all you need to know about who they are.

Republican officials in Alabama are now calling for a narrower definition of what qualifies as a Black voter that does not include people who also identify with another race. They’ve argued in lower court filings that limiting the definition to those who just mark the “Black” on census forms and do not identify as Latino would be the “most defensible.”

Cliffs:
  • Court cases in Alabama and Louisiana determined voting maps were gerrymandered violation of the Voting Rights Act, reducing Black voters ability to elect who they want
  • GOP officials there state the definition is too broad by including folks that identify as Black and Latino (for example) and should be narrowed to Black only
