Late last month, CNN ran an unintentionally-hilarious video with the title "Whitest County Seeks Non-Whites" — for those keeping score, it's Marin County, California — about which Moira Breen commented thusly:

Ever notice the unexamined assumption underlying these unholy pairings of earnest SWPL-osity and grim pursed-lip social engineering? To wit, that any "person of color" (please slit my throat for me if I ever use that phrase non-ironically) is just dying to hang with whitey in whitey-land? I guess the fact that only about, what?, 10% or so of humans are white must constitute a real tragedy for most of mankind — there just aren't enough of us white people around for each and every one of you non-whites to live next to! And I just don't see any feasible solution in the short term to satisfy this human need. Sorry, colorful people, that there just aren't enough of us to go around and make your lives worth living. Yes, it's a tragedy, but you'll just have to soldier on.

The video makes it clear that Marin is going to have to de-whitify itself one way or another, or face the wrath of the Feds, who obviously have solved all other problems and need to keep busy. The next step, I have to assume, is the dissolution of the county, following the example of the enlightened state of Georgia:

The Georgia Legislative Black Caucus filed a lawsuit Monday against the state of Georgia seeking to dissolve the city charters of Dunwoody, Sandy Springs, Johns Creek, Milton and Chattahoochee Hills. Further, the lawmakers, joined by civil rights leader the Rev. Joseph Lowery, aim to dash any hopes of a Milton County.

The lawsuit, filed in a North Georgia U.S. District Court Monday, claims that the state circumvented the normal legislative process and set aside its own criteria when creating the "super-majority white" cities within Fulton and DeKalb counties. The result, it argues, is to dilute minority votes in those areas, violating the Voting Rights Act of 1965 and the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments to the Constitution.

This moves from laughable to offensive on this point:

Lead attorney Jerome Lee, of Taylor Lee & Associates, said the suit is novel.

"The Voting Rights Act forbids a state from doing anything that affects the voting rights of minorities, except with a permissible purpose," he said, citing the redistricting that takes place when the census documents population shifts. "In this case, it's different because the state actually went outside the normal redistricting process and created these cities that have no meaningful state purpose."

No meaningful state purpose. As though the only "meaningful" state purpose was to maintain the status quo (the LePetomane Principle).

The original Milton County, gone broke during the First Great Depression, was annexed to Fulton; Georgia law currently permits a maximum of 159 counties, so the only way Milton could be recreated would be to change that law or combine two other counties. The latter seems unlikely, and Fulton isn't about to let go of its northern protrusion — and, more importantly, the property-tax money collected therein — without a fight. Which indicates to me that even when it's not about the money, ultimately it's about the money.

When will it ever end, you ask? I'd guess around 2040, when the United States will likely no longer have a white-majority population. Race hustlers, facing the inevitable derailment of their gravy trains, will have to come up with new schemes to support their extortion business model.
