Re: “Muslim Raleigh City Council Candidate Zainab Baloch Says Defacement of Her Sign Won't Stop Her Campaign

Somehow, I don't think that jumping to the conclusion that a Muslim woman made up a hate crime out of thin air is being a "realist."

Re: “Five Things We Want to See from New Governor Roy Cooper

Guess I forgot that LGBTQ people and immigrants aren't working people.

Re: “House Majority Leader Mike Hager bemoans gerrymandering, declines to do anything about it

I disagree with you on that. There was a Supreme Court case this summer that challenged Arizona's congressional redistributing commission on the basis that it violated the state legislature's authority; SCOTUS upheld it. Several states have a nonpartisan commission and none of those states have the same problem that NC or Maryland does, so this isn't the way that it has to be. It just takes the majority party realizing that ending the cycle of gerrymandering benefits everyone and makes for a better democracy in the long run.
