WaPo Writer Declares That Black Votes Should Count for More Than White Votes

When they say Black Lives Matter, they mean Only Black Lives Matter — and they feel similarly about black votes:

A writer over at The Washington Post has a bold new proposal he believes can heal the American racial divide: empower blacks by making their votes count more than those of other races.

“Racial reconciliation is impossible without some kind of broad-based, systemic reparations,” writes Theodore R. Johnson, a former White House fellow and current Ph.D candidate in law and policy at Northeastern University. “But if a pecuniary answer can’t fix the structural disadvantage — and it can’t — what can?”

The answer, Johnson argues, is simple: weighted voting, where black votes count for more than white ones. Specifically, Johnson suggests giving each black person five-thirds of a vote, to reverse the old three-fifths compromise written into the U.S. Constitution.

The three-fifths compromise was reached hundreds of years ago, when slave states wanted slaves to count as members of the population, and non–slave states did not.

As Johnson gleefully notes, counting black votes more than others would significantly alter many elections in the U.S. In the 2012 election, several Southern states with high black populations, such as Mississippi and Georgia, would have swung over to Barack Obama’s column, and their recent Senate races would have been decided in Democrats’ favor as well.

This is the same motivation behind the federal government’s refusal to close the border or enforce immigration law after luring millions from the Third World with lavish welfare benefits. It is also the same motivation behind Democrat facilitation of voter fraud on the grounds that electoral integrity is “racist.”

Johnson justifies his argument by saying it’s the only way to solve the [mythical] “structural disadvantages” faced by blacks.

“A five-thirds compromise would imbue African Americans with a larger political voice that could be used to fight the structural discrimination expressed in housing, education, criminal justice and employment,” he says. “Allowing black votes to count for 167 percent of everyone else’s would mean that 30 million African American votes would count as 50 million, substituting super-votes for the implausible idea of cash payments.” With black voters so massively empowered, politicians will have no choice to but to put black priorities first if they hope to remain in office.

According to liberal ideology, the universe revolves around blacks; no priority should compete with pandering to them.

The result of Johnson’s suggestion would be governing officials at every level of the caliber elected mayor in majority black cities, like Marion Barry, Kwame Kilpatrick, and Martin O’Malley. A full scale nuclear attack would be less devastating.

To conclude, Johnson forthrightly says that only reverse racism will be sufficient to achieve the goal of racial justice.

“Reverse racism” is virtually the only racism to be found in this country now. “Racial justice” equates to effective enslavement via an all-powerful redistributive government.

Johnson says his vote should count for more than yours.
