I recently read that 47% of the residents of New Orleans can't read or write.
These people vote.

“...sought to preserve the influence of African-American voters even though they made up just 39 percent of the population in a state legislative district.”
What happened to, “one man, one vote”?
I’m not sure about the 47%, but I do know that the ability to read and write is based on logic and facts. Voting need only be based on feeeeeeeelings.
