The new Congressional map gratuitously targets Black representation

This tactic would make Jim Crow blush.   Breaking news, John xxxxxx: An unelected, out-of-town Special Master released a draft Congressional District map for New York — and the new map gratuitously targets Black representation. I need your help to fight back. Add your name to my pet…

“Bullying”

  John xxxxxx, Last week, we learned through a leaked decision that the so-called majority on the Supreme Court apparently plans to rob women of their long-held reproductive freedom. But instead of acknowledging the disastrous consequences of overturning Roe v. Wade, Justice Claren…
