If you have read the page on Equality, you know that "redistricting" is not -perhaps- a perfect solution, but it works very well. To certain degree, this measure has remedied the problem of minority under-representation, but only in the House of Representatives (it also offers help -as well- on seats for City Commissioners across our land).
The next "equality challenge" would be:
How to implement some mechanisms into our system of government, in such a way that would guarantee a fairer selection of candidates? Candidates who -we all admit- are underrepresented within a larger scope, such as an State or the whole Nation.
We need to take measures -to implement in the US Constitution (obviously as Amendments)- that would guarantee that those groups (minority or not -women are not a minority and yet they are underrepresented) will be fairly represented in the US Senate, in State's Governorships, and even in the highest office of the land, the US Presidency.
What follows are my proposed Amendments to the US Constitution:
Some people may feel that these Amendments are far out, and that we not need such a drastic measure in our voting mechanisms. I could not disagree more. Only if you belong to one of these groups then you would understand the second-class citizen feeling that many of us have.
To those individuals I say: We are not less citizen than you are... bigots!
However, it is quite possible -although I would doubt it- that within 500 years or so, those amendments might not be necessary, in which case they could be annulled. But we will not get there, unless we put the amendments forward now.
