How a Jim Crow law still shapes Mississippi’s elections
By Ian Millhiser Oct 11, 2019


Jim Hood is a political unicorn. A Democrat, Hood nonetheless has won four consecutive statewide elections in the blood-red state of Mississippi — all of them for attorney general. Now he hopes to add a new line to his resume. He’s the Democratic candidate for governor in next month’s election. And the polls suggest that he’s got a real fighting chance.

But there’s a catch. Mississippi held a constitutional convention more than a century ago to, in the words of one former state governor and US senator, “eliminate the n****r from politics.” One still-remaining vestige of that convention is the unusual way the state conducts its statewide elections.

For statewide positions other than US senator, Mississippi uses a system similar to the electoral college. It’s not enough for a candidate to simply win the statewide popular vote. Rather, they must win both a majority of the popular vote and win a majority of the state’s 122 state house districts. If no candidate clears both of these hurdles, the state house chooses the winner from the top two candidates.

70%, 7 out of 10 Mississippi governors, elected since the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 have been hardcore leftists.

Doesn't seem to be hurting the libs very much.
You whites look at things as liberal and conservative. We blacks see white people. Democrats in the south are generally blue dogs=conservative democrats. But regardless, this thread has shown you an example of how white racist policy impacts blacks today.

Ok. I figure you're full of shit. I don't see anything racially discriminatory about Mississippi's election system. If you think it is, it's up to you to explain yourself. Or be ignored. Your call.
Of course you don't blind white man. So go do some research and figure it out.
I already did. I figured it out. You're a crackpot. That's what I figured out.

Actually, Honky Democrats in the Southlands tend to be hard core leftards.

The Gores, Clintons and Carters lead the pack.

But the modern generation of liberal white southern dems like Northam, Ossoff, Cohen and John Edwards are carrying on the tradition.

Maybe you should road trip to Mississippi, and change the world. Wonder if those people know there’s a problem. But all whities are bad, and conspiring together. Or maybe just blame Trump.

Apparently they do.

The George Riley Impact Litigation Initiative is a ten-year initiative to provide litigation and public policy advocacy in areas related to racial and economic justice, including voting rights, housing, consumer protection, and educational access. In 2017, MCJ and Rob McDuff jointly launched the George Riley Impact Litigation Initiative, which is named in honor of longtime MCJ board member the late George Riley.

Cases Under the George Riley Impact Litigation Initiative include:

Harness v. Hosemann (S.D. MS)—suit to invalidate provision of the Mississippi Constitution of 1890 that was adopted to disenfranchise people convicted of particular offenses that were deemed to be “black crimes.” Summary judgment granted for the State. Appeal to 5th Circuit pending.

Mississippi v. Navient Corporation, Sallie Mae Bank and Navient Solutions LLC. (Chancery Court, Hinds Co, MS)—suit where we have joined the Mississippi Attorney General in challenging behavior of student loan lender and servicer. Defendants’ motion to dismiss denied.

Jackson Women’s Health Organization v. Currier (S.D. MS)—suit challenging many of the state’s abortion restrictions. Injunctions issued for both 15 week ban and heartbeat bill. 15-week ban argue in the 5th Circuit 10/7.

Thomas v. Bryant (S.D. MS)—suit challenging the district lines of one Mississippi State Senate District in the Delta to create an additional majority African American district where African American voters can elect a candidate of choice. 5th Circuit panel affirmed Judge Reeves’ decision requiring new lines for District 22, which were used in the primary and will be used in the general election in November. The 5th Circuit, on its own motion, set the case for en banc hearing in January.

Martinez v Hancock County (S.D. MS)—suit against the Hancock County Sheriff’s Department for the unlawful detention of a Hispanic family from South Carolina stopped on I-10 near the Mississippi Gulf Coast on their way to take the children’s grandmother home to Mexico. Settled—in addition to a payment to the plaintiffs, the Hancock County Sheriff’s office agreed to adopt new policies and undergo training on implicit bias to avoid racial profiling in the future.

McLemore v. Hosemann (S.D. MS)—suit challenging the provision in Mississippi’s constitution that allows the Mississippi House of Representatives to choose the winner of elections for statewide state-level offices if no candidate wins both a majority of the popular vote (as opposed to a plurality) and a majority of the house districts. Motion for preliminary injunction pending.

State v. Curtis Flowers—Motions to dismiss and for bail pending in Montgomery County Circuit Court, where Curtis Flowers faces a possible 7th trial for murder in a case where the prosecution has been unable to obtain a legally valid conviction despite six prior trials in a case that has spanned the last 22 years.

Your pretend world where blacks agree with continuing racism from whites doesn't exist.
Could be whites in Mississippi. I’m never going there, and don’t care about a bunch of backwards ass country fucks. I don’t know those whites you allege are hurting people you don’t know either. But since you started the thread, what are YOU going to do to help your people, Sharpton wannabe?

I don't know what Mississippi's election process has got do with "Jim Crow" anyhow.

Jim Crow refers to the Liberal codes mandating racial segregation which have been abolished.

It is only Jim Crow if it is a southern state. Democrats in some states still have similar rules for their primaries. It was why Hillary lost several states to Bernie but came out of them with the same or almost as many delegates as Bernie. It wasn't Jim Crowe when Hlidabeast was benefiting.
Bullshit.
Obama beat Hillary in 2008 with super delegate shananigans.

This comes as no surprise, of course.

And needless to say, Republicans have no desire to address the issue.

No, they don't. Instead these guys want to talk about democrats in 1890. But to say these guys have benefited from 1890 laws gets I wasn't there. Or the stop living in the past. The guys are so full of shit that they all live in septic tanks.
