Six Votes per Person...If You're Brown...

New York burgh Port Chester, under the direction of a federal judge, has decided to upend fair voting in favor of race-based tomfoolery. If you're white, you get one vote, as usual. However, if you claim Latino ancestry, you get SIX votes. My question is, do black people get 3 votes, in some sort of sliding scale? Which is the majority population? News reports indicate that there is a large Latino community in Port Chester...so why not encourage each person to vote, and engage the population, instead of damning the electoral process with such a precedent.

Is it more important to elect any Latino than to elect a qualified candidate? So now one Latino, in Port Chester, NY, is equal to six white people...Dred Scott, much?
