North Carolina Voters Just Don’t Know What’s Good for Them

In a display of arrogance and racial bigotry shocking even for this administration, President Obama’s Justice Department recently invalidated the will of an overwhelming majority of voters in Kinston, NC, who desired to make local elections non-partisan.

From the Washington Times:

The Justice Department’s ruling, which affects races for City Council and mayor, went so far as to say partisan elections are needed so that black voters can elect their “candidates of choice” – identified by the department as those who are Democrats and almost exclusively black.

The department ruled that white voters in Kinston will vote for blacks only if they are Democrats and that therefore the city cannot get rid of party affiliations for local elections because that would violate black voters’ right to elect the candidates they want.

In other words, black voters are too stupid to figure out who represents their values, and white voters are too racist to vote for a black candidate (regardless of values) unless he or she is a Democrat.
