Lawsuit seeks dissolution of Dunwoody, Sandy Springs, Johns Creek, Milton, Chattahoochee Hills

Suit says 'super-majority white neighborhoods' were created

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 suit is based on the idea that African Americans and other minorities can elect the people of their choice,†said Democratic State Sen. Vincent Fort.

The ultimate goal here is to keep the high tax revenue of north Fulton county flowing into southern Fulton county. If Milton county is created, they'll lose big time.

“If we look at this realistically, there is some white flight going on. The creation of these Sandy Springs-type cities enables white voters to get away from black voters,†he said. “It does strike me that the Voting Rights Act might have something to say about this, but it’s unknown what the courts will say about it.â€
White flight... :roll: More like intelligent flight. All one has to do is watch the evening news for a week to figure out that "leaders" in Atlanta are a bunch of incapable morons. People are fed up with crooks and idiots ITP running things OTP county-wise. They formed cities to get more control of their own areas. True to form, the ignorant oafs ITP blame anything other than themselves for their own mess. The ultimate blame is the race card and surprise, they played it.

I just checked my pole.
It's a ten-foot pole.
Nope, not long enough to touch this!

It sounds like when we talk about school segregation. There is de facto and de jure. I can't think there is anything illegal about people making choices about where they live. As long as there is no law dictating it.

Well after the public schools started using forced busing to send kids from white neighborhoods across town to black areas, and shipping black kids from that side of town over to the white suburbs...
... I wouldn't put it past the government to regulate who can live where based on race. You want to buy a home? Fine, apply for a permit and list your race. Oh, you're proposing to move into a designated nondiverse community and you're of the majority race? Sorry, application denied. Pick a different neighborhood. That neighborhood of your first choice already has too many of your kind of people there. We have to promote diversity, so pick a community already designated as "diverse" or one that is non-diverse with a majority race different from yours.

Social engineers and leftist do-gooders--- the WOULD do this if they could get away with it.

The scariest part of that is how close to being achievable it is.

And just to clarify, by "scary" what I mean is having to get permission for where you want to live.

This could backfire on them big-time. By their own (non-)logic, someone could countersue to dissolve the ATL metro cities of College Park, East Point, Lithonia, Stone Mountain, etc. etc.

AV8R is correct, it is a fact that 70% of all tax dollars collected in north Fulton, are spent in south Fulton. Resurrecting Milton County would solve this problem. When Milton County dissolved back during the depression, it was rural, poor, and agricultural. Now that same area is generally suburban and affluent.

Off-topic, but what passes for "middle class" these days, would have been considered "affluent" only a few short years ago.

its obvious what they're trying to achieve. As far as home designation, I don't recall anyone pressuring anyone to live some where.. Just because Johns Creek is majority white, they also have a low crime rate:

Go to :
http://www.johnscreekga.gov/Services/police/reports/crimereports.aspx And select crimereport.com

Their biggest problem is property crime. they have less then 6 sex offenders int their city... Quite honestly I'm safe to say that Johns creek is in much better shape than south Fulton... Or Duluth... I like areas like this because the hosuing is affordable for every dead beat family... Theres nothing preventing blacks from moving there. Magic trick guys.. watch one hand while the other hand is doing something different..

I grew up in north Fulton. Much of my father's tax money was sent south of the river, some to Grady, some to Marta, and the rest went to anything else they wanted to spend money on. Plus I always found it odd that the North Fulton Annex wasn't even in north Fulton.

It's not racial, the folks up there just want to keep their tax money in the area. One example I've used before was libraries. There were 2 north of the river, well up into the 1990's, and there were around 30 below it. Now don't get me started on libraries and how much a waste of money they are now in the internet age.

I was surprised the Fed's did not take up this cause a few years ago when all this secession activity was occurring.

It's too late to complain now.

As a current Resident of Sandy Springs and a Fulton county Resident since 2004, I would love it if the Milton county was reformed. Fulton County and the people that work for the county, really don't work hard at all and I'm tired of it

You realize that you'd still be in Fulton County with even less fellow taxpayer support for the non-incorporated areas of south Fulton ...

I used to say the same thing when I lived in North Fulton too....now that I have lived in South Fulton for 5 or 6 years I'd just like to know where the money is going. It's going somewhere...I don't know where but somewhere. Our schools are older and in worse shape (in general) our roads are crap....there is virtually no County Police presence.....I think the people who live in South Fulton would be better off if the county split. Logistically, it's damn near impossible to provide services to both ends of the County. As far as all that tax revenue from the north....like I said, it's going somewhere.....

As far as this lawsuit, to me it's complete BS. Yes, those are predominantly white areas but that doesn't mean that if you are not white and can afford to move there you can't. It's as much wealth envy as anything else. my :2cents:
